    There's trouble brewing at the Village Blend. Business is booming--but Clare's customers are starting to die. Soon after stopping at the coffeehouse, a regular jumps to her death in the subway. Or was she pushed? Detective Quinn is convinced that someone has an axe to grind, especially after the "suicide" of another female customer. Unfortunately, his prime suspect is Bruce Bowman--the new man in Clare's life. Bruce is the perfect blend of rugged good looks and potent personality.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would and I have loaned my copies to friends and finally gave the entire hardback collection to my local library. I have read most of these in paper version so it is nice to see that Audible is finally beginning to carry some of this type of light reading. Coyle's coffee house series follows a standard format but she always makes me laugh and I have learned a lot about coffee. If you have to have a book that you want to analyze and rip apart for style, deep story content and technical correctness then please do not bother to select this book. But if you want a light enjoyable listen while you relax, knit, sew, garden, etc. pick one up Coyle's coffee house books sit back and enjoy.


    Any additional comments?

    Now, Audible, how about the Tea Shop Mysteries by Laura Childs? Drayton is a hoot and all the characters would be a wonderful challenge to a narrator.

    On a sweltering summer night, a major blackout hits New York City and more than one person in Sleuth Regan Reilly's building blows their fuse! In the midst of the chaos, with her husband Jack out coping with the city's problems, Regan finds herself drawn into a case she would never expect to happen in her own home.

    The book is a fun "read" and was an enjoyable interlude but someone needs to tell this author she cannot read! Perhaps she is trying to save money by recording her own books but she just makes a mess of them. I had purchased one of her books prior to this and decided to try once more in hopes she had improved. No such luck. Not only is her voice not that pleasing but her inflection and emphasis is awful. Everything is always at an excited, breath taking pitch even when she is writing in the third person.

    I have purchased my last audio book recorded by Ms Clark until she has someone else read them. Too bad, it was a fun book but I couldn't wait for it to be over.

    What a wonderful read! It is long but never slow. The narration was excellent. Great use of voices. Well worth the time.
