    "Fun mystery centered around coffee & Fashion Week!"

    I really enjoy these coffee shop mysteries because they have the fun of cozies with a greater depth of characterization then most cozies, and they are filled with so many interesting facts about coffee, New York, and whatever subject matter that each book is centered around. In this third in the series, the glamor and competitiveness of the fashion world becomes the center focus.

    The Village Blend coffee shop is hosting a party for Fashion Week near Bryant Park. All the rich, famous and beautiful people have come to mingle and drink expertly blended coffee. But when a cup of Clare Cosi's coffee is shared by two men and one drops dead and the other one is rushed to the hospital barely breathing, Clare's friend and favorite barista is arraigned for the murder. Once again Clare and her ex-husband and business partner go to work to prove his innocence. In this book, her rich , French mother-in-law is also enlisted by Clare because of her influence in this fashion world business set.

    The fashion world and entrepreneurs of other businesses all become potential suspects making the mystery interesting right up until the final solution. Clare and her family also become more familiar and interesting in every book. This is definitely one of my favorite cozy mystery series!

    "good clean mystery"

    entertaining and clean. I could listen to this with my teenage kids in the car. I know a lot of people were complaining about the amount of time she spends describing coffee, but I enjoyed that and I am not really a coffee drinker.

    "Great Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Latte Trouble to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version, but I prefer audio books in general.


    What does Rebecca Gibel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Personality of each character is made more real through the narrators voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It would be great to have the opportunity to listen to it in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Love Cleo Coyles Coffee House series.

    "The Continuation of an Exciting Series!"

    "Latte Trouble" is the third installment in the Clare Cosi Coffeehouse Mystery books. Like the others, this book fuses the mystery and romance genres together seamlessly. The main characters continue to be multifaceted. NYC provides the perfect setting for this, often crazy & eccentric, cast of characters. I've really enjoyed seeing the relationships between Clare and the other characters change over time. The exchanges between Clare, Quinn, & Matteo are electric.

    I definitely recommend starting this series from the beginning, not because it's necessary to understanding the plot line, but because they're really good books and the narration is perfect. Also, as a coffee lover I actually found this book informative. The author(s) manage to give adequate descriptions of the various coffees, how they're made, and best consumed without making you feel like you're being hit over the head with information. And, I definitely recommend trying out some of the recipes given at the end of the book :)

    "Mocha interesting"
    Would you listen to Latte Trouble again? Why?

    Probably not for a while, however I would like to read the coffee house series


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character, however her name escapes me. I enjoyed the part of her going undercover.


    What does Rebecca Gibel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I never knew that much about coffee & all the flavors.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but it was an enjoyable book for a ride home from work.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the narrator's voice. That's a HUGE determining factor of when I choose books- plus reading the ratings to see if the story interests me.

    "Getting better!"

    The story and writing are getting better. This was actually enjoyable (save for one long gushing description of Soho, NY that went on for over 5 minutes!) The character development is good and the plot is passable. The execution of the mystery is still weak, but most of the points are good and enjoyable. I figured out who did it in the first third of the book. I can identify with the characters.

    Narration is excellent and makes the story come alive.

    I'd recommend this to those wanting a light listen. One free of suspenseful drama and one that you don't have to pay too much attention to.

    If you could sum up Latte Trouble in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, Informative, Engrossing


    What other book might you compare Latte Trouble to and why?

    Susan Conant, "Bite of Death" series
    Serious subject, serious crimes, but with humor, likable characters, and personal relationships entwined


    What does Rebecca Gibel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    her accents and voices are great!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Enjoying this series so far, and I am NOT a coffee lover!


    Any additional comments?

    ( Ms. Coyle needs to review use of I/me - the misuse occurred 3 - 4 times in this book alone.......)

    Story
    "Wasn't sure I was going to like this."
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Just when you think you know who did it, the story takes you in a different direction. It made me want to figure it out before the end of the book, which I was happy to know that I had.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Maryann finally stood up for herself and any scene with Anatoli.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened on my drive to work and home in Los Angeles traffic, so I wanted to save it for then.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not realise that this book was part of a series and it makes me want to listen to the others.
