From the New York Times best-selling author of Once Upon a Grind comes an exciting new installment in the Coffeehouse Mystery series.
Clare's visit to the nation's capital is off to a graceful start. Her octogenarian employer is bunking with her in a charming Georgetown mansion, and a Smithsonian curator invites her to work on its culinary salute to coffee in America.
Clare's new village blend, called DC, is struggling to earn a profit until it attracts a high-profile fan: the college-age daughter of the president. Clare's stock rises as the first lady befriends her, but she soon learns a stark lesson. Washington can be murder.
First she finds a dead body in a back booth. Then the president's daughter goes missing. Is she a runaway bride, or is something more sinister in play? After another deadly twist, Clare is on the run with her NYPD detective boyfriend. Branded an enemy of the state, she must piece together clues and uncover the truth before her life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness come to a bitter end.

Unbelievable new style of story telling blending time-lines and plot in spellbinding excitement. Best yet!
Tell us about yourself I Never want to read a book again. I love love love audible. Now all my children have acc. I drive and listen all day
loved it. Claire could side line. her coffee roasting with a privite eye business .yea
Loved this one! Nice intro to some new people and yet still kept the old faces nearby. I was worried that I wouldn't get to hear from Ester at all but even she and Borris made an appearance. Liked the new DC feel, yet keeping the Greenwich Village Gang members included.
no to cleo coyle but the narrator was okay
have at better plot, this was predictable and lame
no it was very schamalzy
This book was good with just enough twists. The narrator has a distracting habit of raising her voice at the end of most sentences & using the wrong inflections for emphasis.
The plot had so many twists and turns, I got lost a few times. Also, the way the story was told, looking back from the present to the past just didn't work well for me. I would think I'd heard the whole story and then back we'd go for more plot. Very busy.
I did like the way it ended.
