    Another caffeinated caper!

    I just love this series. This latest is the greatest yet. New Yorker Clare Cosi manages a coffee shop, but this summer she leaves it behind as she heads for the Hamptons¿and perhaps the biggest jolt of her life... Clare Cosi¿s new friend, millionaire David Mintzer, has an offer no New York barista could turn down: an all-expenses- paid summer away from the sticky city. At his Hamptons mansion, she plans to relax, soak up the sun by the sea, and (oh yes!) help train the staff of his new restaurant. So Clare packs up her daughter, her former mother-in-law, and her special recipe for iced coffee¿for what she hopes will be one de-latte- ful summer¿ Soon, Clare tends the coffee bar at her first Hamptons gala. But the festivities come to a bitter end when an employee turns up dead in David¿s bathroom¿a botched attempt on the millionaire¿s life. Thanks to the Fourth of July fireworks, no one heard any gunshots. With the police are on their way, Clare begins to investigate. What she finds will keep her up at night¿and it¿s not the java jitters. Thoroughly enjoyable. A great summer read from start to finish.

    Multi-millionaire David Mintzer ¿hires¿ Clare Cosi, manger of the historic Village Blend coffeehouse, to train the staff at his new Long Island restaurant. In return, Clare will spend the summer at his Ottium cum Dignitate mansion in the Hamptons with all her expenses covered. A no brainer, she leaves hotter than a matchstick Manhattan for East Hampton accompanied by her daughter Joy and her former mother-in-law, Madame. --- At David¿s first bash of the season, a Fourth of July gala, Clare works the coffee bar where she whips up her special iced choco latte. Clare goes to find David, but instead sees a corpse whom she initially thought was her employer the victim is employee Treat Mazzelli who easily could be mistaken for his boss because both have similar short body types. While the local police are arriving, Clare does a bit of snooping as her theory is the culprit targeted David. --- The latest Coffeehouse Mystery (see ON WHAT GROUNDS, THROUGH THE GRINDER, and LATTE TROUBLE) is a terrific amateur sleuth tale that showcases the heroine at her best. This time, unlike her previous brews in which the coffee gourmand knows that NYPD Detective Mike Quinn has so much more experience with homicide than her Clare assumes she is the veteran vs. the local cops who she believes do drunks. Still they treat her like an idiot, which only propels Clare to uncover the killer¿s identity before she makes her next latte. --- Harriet Klausner

    Clare Cozi is taking a vacation from The Village Blend Coffee Ho

    Clare Cozi is taking a vacation from The Village Blend Coffee House to work as a Barista in her rich friend, David, restaurant in the Hamptons.  She's also keeping watch on her daughter's love life with a young man who has a less than stellar reputation.  "Madam", her ex mother in law, and owner of the Village Blend fits right in with this rich society crowd, having a summer fling herself.  




    Everything is going great until death hits David's Fourth of July party.  Though the victim is an employee of David's, Clare disagrees with the police as to whom the intended victim was meant to be. 




    I love these mysteries, as they're filled with coffee facts that are detailed and thoroughly engaging reading.  In this book, there are also fun facts about the Hamptons with the rich and famous.  Once again, the mystery is exciting and full of red herrings.  "Madam's" role in this book is greater, with this spunky 80 something character, who is just endearing.  One of the best cozy series around!

    Highly recommend this series. It's GREAT!

    WOW! I love this series. It has everything--family, love, sorrow, characters, mystery and suspense. Recommend reading in order so you know who's who as the story line with characters progresses as you read. I'm in the middle of #10 and kinda wish Matt & Clare get back together as he always seems to be there for her and especially after Madamme reveals the secret about her own Clare. Also hope Joy and Manny get together as Manny would make a great coffee bean buyer when Matt decides to stop doing it. Like Lt. Mike but he really is married to the force. Each book gets better than the last and I don't want the series to stop but I'm always there. Great read, keep 'em coming.
