Everything you every wanted to know about decaffeinated coffee told in a most exciting way, plus more and more information about New York,  makes up this fifth Village Blend Coffee House cozy mystery.  Sometimes lots of extraneous information overwhelms, but these mysteries seem to blossom with every piece of information.  In this mystery, the development of a coffee plant that actually produces coffee beans with less caffeine than processed decaffeinated regular beans,  becomes a boon that brings out the money developers, and those who will kill for this product. Clare and her octogenarian mother-in-law parole the streets of New York while seeking stalkers and murderers.  Clare and her co-coffee shop owner and ex husband remain  friends and loving parents to their 20 something daughter.  Everyone is developing other love lives of their own, which cause intriguing conflicts and problems within this book.  I loved the car chase scenes, even the left turn on red that nearly put a couple of them in jail.   If you're a coffee lover, New York loves, cozy lover, or just a plain book lover, you will definitely enjoy this decaffeinated joy ride of a mystery!

I've just read my second Cleo Coyle book and I can smell the coffee. I still can't grind or brew the sacred bean half as well as the author, but I'm learning some facts. I know how to test whether the beans were fresh when I get my cup-never knew that before. And I know a little more about where they grow. Cleo Coyle sets her mysteries around the Village Blend coffee house in New York. Decaffeinated espresso is described as a "why bother," but it seems there may a new brew on the block that's decaffeinated and delicious. Clare Cosi runs the store and lives upstairs with her ex-husband, son of the delightfully quirky French owner and close friend of the seller of decaffeinated beans. But there's more than coffee in the air, and would a mugger really just be trying to steal a plant? Business opportunity might turn to disaster, and scheming lovers might end up in jail on charges of murder, but Clare's friend the policeman drinks his latte and keeps his feet on the ground while others fly through the air. The story's fun, exciting and mysterious. The background (and scent of coffee) is delightful. The relationships are cool and intriguing, Madame ever the coolest of course; and the book is great fun. Time for some caffeine now I think before I go shopping for more.
