Another great mystery with coffee tips thrown in. I love the recipes at the end of the book ( )

Clare Cosi manages The Blend coffe shop with her exhusband Matt. Matt has made an exclusive deal for them to sell decaffinated coffee made from decaffinated beans. The grower of the beans, Ric, is mugged outside their store. My problem with the book is that not much action occured until nearly 200 pages into it. Until then there was a lot of coffee facts and Clare trailign people for no particular reason. ( )

Somehow I don't think that if I was standing on a street outside of a highrise building, and a body fell and landed splatt!! right next to me, that I would be calm and basically ignore the event after determining that I didn't know the dead person. Clare seems to be a bit too cool in this cozy but it was entertaining. ( )

I continue to enjoy this series, and [b:Decaffeinated Corpse|89657|Decaffeinated Corpse (Coffehouse Mystery, #5)|Cleo Coyle|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1171163196s/89657.jpg|86532] is a nice addition. Enjoyed the international flair to this story. ( )

I liked it, but it left a little to be desired. I wish that there had been less about coffee and more about the murders, etc. The book is supposed to be a murder/mystery, but those details seemed like an afterthought. ( )

Book description
coffeehousemysteries.com- At the Village Blend, Clare Cosi’s best baristas may refer to a decaffeinated espresso as a “why bother?”, but Clare knows a good percentage of her customers prefer the neutered brew. So when Ric Gostwick, a charismatically handsome Brazilian, develops the world’s first botanically decaffeinated coffee plant, Clare can see why Matt (her ex-husband and business partner) gets into bed with the deal.
Unfortunately, Ric is also getting into bed with more than one woman. And when an attempted murder happens right outside the Blend’s back door, Clare suspects more than Ric’s revolutionary new plant has its roots in some dirt.
As she begins to investigate Ric’s background and business connections, a trail of clues leads to a pile up of casualties and an international roster of suspects. Now Clare knows she’s got to find the murderer before one of her near and dears takes a fall. Otherwise, her latest addition to the Village Blend menu will prove to be a real buzz killer.
