Coffee making question

I have just read all of your coffee house books and I LOVE them.

As a relatively new coffee drinker, I have learned a tremendous amount - I am now hand grinding my beans rather than using a spice grinder! But what is the best method for making coffee for one person ( a relatively large cup)? There are so many devices out there...


Cleo's reply - 

First of all, thank you so much for the kind note. Marc, my husband (and partner and crime writing) are always appreciative of readers like you, who stop by our board to let us know that you are enjoying our work. It makes our day, and we hope you continue to read and enjoy the books.

As far as a device for making a single cup, that is something you will need to decide, based on what appeals to you. There are plenty of variables to weigh. By trial and error, however, you'll find a solution...

There are small stovetop espresso makers, for instance, for those who enjoy a strong espresso-style coffee. Small French presses (aka coffee presses) are available if you prefer that method (and taste). Or you might want to purchase a small drip maker or the kind of single-serving coffee maker that allows you to grind your own beans and place it in a single-serve pod. (That's really the best way to go for quality and value if you're talking single-serve convenience.) Finally, there are small pour-over filters you can place over a signle cup. So, you see, the solution is up to you. Whatever suits your taste buds and your lifestyle, whatever brings you joy...that's your best cup.

Thanks again for stopping by...

Keep reading and keep in touch!

I just finished reading On What Grounds and I have to say if the rest of the series is as good as this one, I can't wait to read the rest. I love the characters and all the talk of coffee made me want to run out and grab a cup to drink as I was reading. Keep up the great work.

Haunted Bookstore series

When will the next Haunted Bookshop Mystery come out?... I'm about to give up on this series.

Cleo's reply - No need to give up. Marc and I are turning in the next book in the Haunted Bookshop Mysteries to our publisher this year, and we have several more in the works after that.

Our publisher will be setting the final pub date later this year. And when I know, I'll let you know, but it's on the way, at last, and Marc and I thank you and all of the Haunted Bookshop Mystery fans for your patience.

No doubt about it - Jack is coming back.

So bummed I'm done!

I finished book 14 yesterday....having caffeine withdrawals already. From the first book to the 14th, I had them playing in my car on Audible.com Is there going to be a #15?
September 15, 2015

What's Next?

I just finished Book 11. I have read them continuously since I discovered then a short time ago. I eagerly await what is in store for Clare in D.C. as well as what happens with Joy and Franco. Thanks for giving me a series I look forward to continuing.

Newly Addicted


I began with "On What Grounds" (book 1) in May, and I've just started "Holiday Buzz" (book 12). I am having such a great time reading this wonderful series.

In the future, I am hoping that Joy will open a restaurant that will only serve delicious healthy meals, so that every choice will be the right choice. I can't find such a place in real life so I hope to enjoy it vicariously with a good mystery.


Cleo's reply:

Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to drop by my message board and let me know that you are enjoying my books. I truly appreciate it!

As for Joy, there is an important development in her life, which you'll read about in my upcoming Coffeehouse Mystery #15, DEAD TO THE LAST DROP, publishing this December. Click here to learn more about the new entry. 

Drop back again and let me know. In the meantime, I hope you'll keep reading...and keep in touch. 


Wishing you java joy,

~ Cleo

Thanks for writing such entertaining books

I downloaded Billionaire Blend and loved it. Since it was further along in the series, I decided to take a chance and go all the way back to book #1, On What Ground. I am so glad I did. It answers many questions I had about the back story of the characters. I am loving your writing, your characters, and setting. Now I am on book #3 - Latte Trouble, and loving that one, too. The stories are entertaining and the mysteries are intriguing. I hope you keep writing! Beth E.

I LOVE CoffeHouse Mysteries!

Unfortunately, I started with Once Upon a Grind. I saw it on display at my local library, read the summary, and thought, "This sounds fun!" Then I realized that it part of a series... which always gets me excited. I still chose to read Once Upon a Grind first... now I can't wait to read the rest of the series... started with book 1 of course! Thanks Cleo for writing such fun books!
