    "I didn't hate it"

    I like to listen to audiobooks while doing the housework and this one wasn't apt for much more. I haven't listened to any other books in this series and I'm not sure I would. The almost silly amount of coffee talk made the main characters seem quite shallow, like nothing in the world was more important then the brew!

    "Good writer, overcrowded story"

    This is a good writer, but she ruined this book with multiple subplots and needless complications. Also, she uses long-winded explication scenes, which annoy me.

    Having said that, it's excellent fun for foodies and coffee addicts, and the core cast are very enjoyable characters. The reader is excellent.

    Story
    "Horrible"
    What would have made Murder by Mocha better?

    A believable story, better written characters, a consistency editor, an editor in general ...
    - the police doesn't include civilians in their investigations if they can avoid it. They don't share information about ongoing cases, they don't let civilians question the criminals, etc ... highly irritating.
    - Claire repeatedly says she's not happy with her bodyshape (too much curves, not at all perfect, blabla) - but the bodybuilder guy at the ICE mistakes her for a fitness model?
    - All of the protagonists switch between self-assured and completely insecure, without warning.
    - Claire confides to Matteo that she spied on her daughter for all of her adolescence - not ok.

    I could go on and on, but this book probably shouldn't have been published in the first place.


    What could Cleo Coyle have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't know if there is anything she could have done, other than not write this book.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator has a good voice, good pronunciation, she was easy to understand and follow and it's not her fault that the book is an utter waste of time and money.


    What character would you cut from Murder by Mocha?

    Where to start ... Alicia, Maya, Aphrodite, all the very bitchy arrogant "ladies" that behave like total lunatics. Oh wait, then I'd have to cut Claire too - who walks into a trap like this without informing the police?? "come alone, only you will be admittet" - yeah sure ...


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this in the "this is the first of a series" sale - in fact is book number 10 in this series, which accounts for some of the confusion at the start of the book.
