This is the first book I have read in the Coffeehouse mystery series & based on my experience I would say it's okay to read it without having read the others. It didn't seem like I was missing any crucial points.
Rebecca Gibel is a great narrator. She keeps your interest and never seemed to have any problems with the many voices she had to employ for this crazy cast of characters. But, what I really loved about this book was the fact that it was fun & sexy, rather than silly & crass. I love that the main character isn't portrayed as some silly, stupid damsel in distress. Instead, Clare is an interesting yet stable character with normal, healthy relationships with the people she loves: her boyfriend, ex-mother-in-law, daughter, and even her ex-husband. It's all the other people in the novel who are crazy :)
One of the really fun things about this book is that the author, Cleo Coyle, is obviously a foodie. Her description of coffee and chocolate--and all the ways Clare used them in her recipes--was fascinating. I'm acutally walking away from this book with a recipe I plan on trying!
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Cleo is great she does the voices great but the story is starting to bore me before the end
