This is the first Cleo Coyle I've read and really enjoyed it. The characters were well thought out and Clare Cosi is so humorous. If you are a coffee drinker like me you'll love this one.

I have loved every single Coffeehouse Mystery, and French Pressed, the sixth installment, is no exception. It draws the reader in immediately by starting out from the first person perspective of a killer - a technique which is highly effective and very chilling - a killer who commits murder before the end of the prologue. Tension continues to mount from there. Clare Cosi, manager of the Village Blend coffeehouse in Greenwich Village, and Madame Blanche Dreyfus Allegro Dubois (Madame for short), Clare¿s ex-mother-in-law and owner of the Blend, are enjoying dinner at Solange, the 4-star restaurant in Manhattan where Joy, Clare¿s only child, just happens to be working as part of her culinary school internship. As Cleo Coyle fans already know, Joy is carrying on an inappropriate relationship with Solange¿s much older and married Executive Chef, Tommy Keitel, much to her mother¿s and grandmother¿s consternation. After dinner, which ended with some abysmal coffee, Clare visits the kitchen and witnesses one of the chefs physically threatening her daughter - an act that seems even more ominous when Joy later discovers the body of one of her fellow interns. At the suggestion of Clare¿s friend, Detective Mike Quinn, Clare comes up with a plan that might gain her entree into Solange¿s kitchen so she can try to figure out what¿s going on. Despite Clare and Detective Quinn¿s best efforts, however, the bodies continue to pile up. Also, in addition to the plot dealing with Solange and Clare¿s daughter, Detective Quinn encourages Clare¿s involvement in an investigation of his own. I have to say that in addition to everything else, I¿m VERY pleased with the direction Clare is moving in her personal life. Despite Madame¿s best efforts, Clare is determined to be responsible for her own happiness. You go, girl! The ending is very intriguing, and makes me more than a little anxious to see what will transpire in book seven! Can¿t wait!

The sixth Village Coffeehouse mystery has Clare delving into the world of high class restaurants in Manhatten.  She's been engrossed in running the Village Blend Coffeehouse but, Joy,  her "20 something" daughter's relationship with an executive chef thirty years her senior, sends Clare out to check on this relationship.  Clare's able to use her marketing skills of paring particular excellent coffees with exquisite deserts to talk with the chef.  But soon there after one of his line cooks is found dead---then the executive chef himself is murdered.  When Joy becomes the chief suspect, Clare goes on the search for the real killer. Clare's relationship with her sexy detective friend is also warming up.  He knows about Clare's skill in finding previous murderers, so he has her volunteer herself as bait for the killers.  Perhaps this is the only way to save her daughter, so Clare is up for this trickery. This series is always top notch excitement mixed with lots of thrilling information about coffee, and in this book, inside information about the restaurant business.  Romantic relationships cause a bit of confusion between the characters, but some of these pairings are heating up nicely.  This series never fails to be enjoyable!

An easy read. A book so descriptive of the coffee brewing process in between the murder mystery that you can almost smell the coffee brewing. Keeps you guessing til the last pages. Always love a series where you get to know the characters and look forward to reading what they are up to in the next book.
