Come back Jack!

OK I get it the coffee shop series is the most popular, but we the Jack lovers need a fix and soon please.
August 27, 2014

Thank you

So very much for your lovely books, they bring me a lot of joy. Bless you... Nicolle

I love the Haunted Bookshop mysteries

I love the Haunted Bookshop mysteries,,,!

Haunted bookshop

Keep up the good job. I have read your bookshop series too will ever find out where "Jack" is buried.
August 25, 2014

Coffeehouse Mysteries

I "found" your series after finishing another long running series. With Clare, it took a few chapters to get invested in the characters...but after that there was no stopping me. Thank you so much for releasing your books as e-books! I was able to finish one book then purchase and begin the next without leaving the house! In the last 8 weeks I have read the entire series while learning a great deal about coffee/espresso. I am currently reading the last installation available in the series and looking forward to your release of the next. I have already purchased a French Press and a 6 cup Moki. I realize Clare does not think much of decaffeinated anything, but people how have problems with sleep really have little choice in the matter if they are to enjoy a good night's rest. Sadly we have only chain coffee shops in my area...actually, only one chain, but we do have a very nice specialty coffee bean purveyor. I think of Matteo every time I drive by. I have taken to making my own lattes and cappuccinos to go...I love it and it definitely saves some money, too. Just a tip for the reader looking for espresso powder for baking...check out any Italian or European grocer...they will have it in stock; most likely in the specialty foods aisle rather than the coffee aisle. That was the case for me anyway. I plan to begin the Haunted Bookstore series next. I like that you keep each book under 500 pages. I can finish a book in a couple of days, complete some chores, spend time with the hubby and the dog before I begin the next one. The hubby believes I have an addiction to reading...Clare is my crack? Naomi in Ohio

Will there be a wedding in the new book??

I am on the Billionaire Blend last in your series right now. I absolutely love all of your books and love getting to know all the characters. I am a cozy mystery fanatic and I think your series by far is the best I have read and I have read a lot. I was wondering if either Joy or Clare may hear wedding bells in your new book. Anxiously awaiting the new book Sandy from Glendora, NJ

Haunted Bookshop Mysteries

I am a huge fan of the Coffeehouse Mystery series. I have all but Billionaire Blend and I can't wait to read it. I also have the Haunted Bookshop series, and may I say that it is just as amazing. I can't wait for the The Ghost and the Bogus Bookseller. (I have read this series twice) ;-) Keep up the good work! A fan in New Mexico

Tom and Jerry

Earlier today I was watching a recently, modern new episode of Tom and Jerry. In this episode, after closing time, they both play PIs and their client (a mouse) comes into the office and asks that he'd like to hire Tom and Jerry for a case. The client says that the house the client lives in is haunted and immediately after Tom and Jerry start laughing in disbelief. It made me laugh because it reminded me of Jack when he was human and didn't believe in ghosts. In a state of irony, in the Tom and Jerry episode, the client turned out to be a ghost himself, and, of course, Jack became one after death to haunt Penelope. :D -Rosa

Question about your next Coffeehouse Mystery

Hi. I am a loyal fan of yours. Indeed, you are one of my top three cozy authors (and I've read a bunch!) I'm wondering...about...ONCE UPON A GRIND....

I will be pre-ordering ONCE UPON A GRIND as soon as I can and look forward to it as I do every one of your great books. I'd love to know about the...question if you have a chance!

Regards from Minnesota :-)

 

Cleo's reply I am happy to assure you that if you have been reading the Coffeehouse Mysteris series, you will enjoy ONCE, too.

As to your question, that's easy: The book's theme is the power of fairty tales (the power of story) and the importance of narrative in shaping our lives and in solving crimes. So no worries!

I have no doubt that fans who have been reading our series will enjoy this book. Clare Cosi is put through mental and physical challenges she's never before faced, and the ending brings big changes to her life.The book is also packed with action and humor, and I hope you enjoy the ride...and the beautiful cover (pictured above).

Cheers, thanks for stopping by my message board, and thanks most of all for reading my books. I can't thank you enough for that. 


 

Warmest java wishes,

~ Cleo

Just Discovered The Coffeehouse Mysteries

 
 

I love it when I stumble upon a new series that ialready in progress, so I can jump right in and read them without having to wait for more to be written. Already read book 1, and have ordered 2 and 3! Loving the recipes as well!

 

Cleo's reply - Thank you kindly for the sweet note, and welcome to the Coffeehouse Mystery community!

I hope you continue to enjoy the books...and the food. :) I post recipes every week at this site, and I love hearing from readers.

Come on back now, y'hear?

Recipes

Has Clare ever thought of writing a cookbook to sell in the Village Blend?

 

Cleo's reply -

That's a fun question. As you know, starting with book #1, ON WHAT GRONDS, Clare Cosi let readers know that her background included writing a column for a local paper called "In the Kitchen with Clare," and it included recipes. A cookbook or a collection of her columns might be something she would publish. Stay tuned, you may see that yet!

I have binged on books 1-10 this year

 

I started listening to your audio books early this year and have really enjoyed them. However I do have a pet peeve, you allow Matteo to have a drink in some of the books. I know it is fiction however, if he really is an ex-drug addict who is clean would never drink. I do not want to see Matteo relapse.

 

Cleo's reply - First of all, thank you kindly for reading my books, and thanks also for taking the time and effort to leave a message on my board. I appreciate it!

While readers often want to see characters do the exact right thing, the truth is we (as humans) often fail to do the right thing. We are flawed creatures. We make mistakes. We bend rules, and we make excuses.

Matteo, like many cast members of the Coffeehouse Mystery series, is a flawed character, and the note you've made is one of those flaws. Will Matt slide into using drugs again? I doubt it. Then again, it's a possibility for him, as it is for any addict. Thus far, in the published books, Matt has stayed on the straight and narrow, where the drug issue is concerned, but you never know. Thanks again for your note, and I hope you continue to enjoy the books!

Warmest java wishes,

~ Cleo Coyle

espresso powder

 

What is espresso powder and where can I find it for use in your recipes? I live near Carson City, NV. 

Thanks.

 

 

Cleo's reply - Espresso powder is like instant coffee. It is freeze-dried espresso. In other words, it does not consist of ground up coffee beans. Espresso powder, when mixed with hot water, creates an instant espresso for you. I don't suggest you drink espresso this way, but I strongly suggest you use it in recipe instead of instant coffee (when this flavoring is called for). Espresso powder has a much better flavor.

To shop for espresso powder, click here to see many ways you can purchase it online. Look for it in your grocery store's instant coffee aisle or ask a store employee to help you find it. Most super markets carry it. Otherwise, use the link I provided and shop online. Whatever recipe you're making, I hope you enjoy it!

So Happy to have found your books!

 

 

So Happy to have found your books! I have been looking for a series for a while that I could get lost in and your coffee house mysteries are so much fun! 

I am reading the first one and so looking forward to diving into all of them. Thank you :)

ON WHAT GROUNDS
A Coffeehouse Mystery

 

 

 

Cleo's reply:

Thank *you* for that wonderful comment! I am delighted that you took the time and trouble to stop by my message board. I hope you continue to enjoy the books in my series.

There are 13 published thus far with #13 BILLIONAIRE BLEND newly released in its paperback edition, and #14 coming this December. I'll be posting more about #14 ONCE UPON A GRIND (a fairy tale murder) soon. Until then, may you...

My Train Journey
To Work 
Was Boring....
Until I discovered Your Books

Hi,

I just wanted to say thanks for writing the fabulous coffeehouse mysteries. I am reading through the whole series whilst going back and forth to work on the train in England. Your books make my day. In the evenings, on my journey home, I just forget about all of the stresses and strains of the day as I step into the village Blend. Thank You and long may you continue writing.

Marion,
Derbyshire, England

 

 

Cleo's reply:

HELLO, ENGLAND!

Do not be alarmed,Marion, I often shout out place names to help visitors see where other readers are posting. I am quite excited to see your post from England. In truth, I am quite blown away...

Before I began to write full-time, I escaped on the New York subway with favorite authors. That's why reading your comment made my week. I am flattered and honored and inspired. I will think of you as I continue working to make new books worth your time. I hope you will continue reading, and do keep in touch!


Warmest java wishes,

~ Cleo,

Fantastic books

It is so nice to read mysteries that are not filled with sex. Some times it's just nice to sit back and read a light mystery that keeps u guessing. Thanks for many enjoyable hours. Oh, and by the way I have 4 grand children who r baristas.
