REVIEW: Latte Trouble

Latte Trouble
Author: Cleo Coyle

It's Fashion Week in New York City. Clare Cosi is hosting an insider's party at Village Blend. A well-known jewelry designer, Lottie Harmon, will be a special guest. Just as Clare starts to think the event will go off without a hitch, a customer drops dead from cyanide in his latte right in the middle of the party. Once again Village Blend is at the center of a murder investigation. Instead of ruining her business, Village Blend becomes the place to be once news of the murder gets out. The barista who served the deadly latte is arrested for murder. Clare knows her employee is not guilty, despite the fact he knew the dead man intimately. The latte was actually meant for Lottie Harmon, so Clare starts to investigate who might want the jewelry designer dead. When another associate of Harmon's jewelry company is killed, it becomes imperative to find the killer before anyone else dies.

Latte Trouble is the 3rd Coffeehouse Mystery. As usual the story is infused with lots of information about coffee and how to properly brew and serve it, as well as lots of interesting info about NYC. The mystery portion of the plot was well-developed, with plenty of suspects, twists and turns and a nice, unexpected flip at the end. I haven't been disappointed by this series yet!

There are 15 books in the Coffeehouse Mystery series. The newest book, Dead to the Last Drop, just released this week! Cleo Coyle is a pseudonym for husband and wife writing team, Alice Alfonsi and Mark Cerasini.
