Both new and returning readers will love this coffee-flavored mystery. This is the ninth outing for Clare Cosi, amateur sleuth extraordinaire who remains sweet yet strong; bold yet fallible. Chasing red herrings around NYC with Clare, the reader will constantly be asking whodunit, but will never get confused or lost in the story’s plot. Even readers who normally don’t pick up cozies will be right at home with the fast pacing and clever dialogue of this fantastic mystery.

When Clare and her ex mother-in-law are caught in a restaurant explosion, the cops think it is an accident, but Clare knows that it is more. But who would want to blow up a coffeehouse and why does it seem like the police and fire fighters are more interested in getting her off the case then they are in solving the mystery?  (Prime Crime, Aug, 24.95).
