This cozy takes you into the coffeehouse world with details so vivid you can smell the brew. Recipes, humor and a complicated puzzle of death blend together in a combination as satisfying as coffee and cream on a cold winter morning. The relations between Clare, her ex-husband and her detective lover are complicated and honest. If you haven't read the other books in this series, you'll want to order them after reading this.
Clare Cosi, the manager of a landmark coffeehouse in Greenwich Village, is again involved in a mystery when her daughter is accused of murder. Joy is interning at Solange, a popular French restaurant run by Chef Tommy Keitel. The hot-tempered, brilliant chef is as talented with women as he is with food and, to Clare's dismay, her daughter is having an affair with the older, married man. When he ends up dead, stabbed with Joy's knife, Clare vows to find the real killer with the help of her ex-husband and her detective boyfriend. (BERKLEY PRIME CRIME, Apr., 288 pp., $6.99)
