Publisher's Summary

Clare Cosi's new friend, millionaire David Mintzer, has an offer no New York barista could turn down: an all-expenses-paid summer away from the sticky city. At his Hamptons mansion, she'll relax, soak up the sun, and, oh yes, train the staff of his new restaurant. So Clare packs up her daughter, her former mother-in-law, and her special recipe for iced coffee for what she hopes will be one de-latte-ful summer...

Soon, Clare tends the coffee bar at her first Hamptons gala. But the festivities come to a bitter end when an employee turns up dead in David's bathroom--a botched attempt on the millionaire's life. Thanks to the Fourth of July fireworks, no one heard any gunshots, and the police are stuck in holiday traffic. Concerned for everyone's safety, Clare begins to investigate. What she finds will keep her up at night--and it's not the java jitters.

    "Great coffee based cozy mystery!"

    Clare Cozi is taking a vacation from The Village Blend Coffee House to work as a Barista in her rich friend, David, restaurant in the Hamptons. She's also keeping watch on her daughter's love life with a young man who has a less than stellar reputation. "Madam", her ex mother in law, and owner of the Village Blend fits right in with this rich society crowd, having a summer fling herself.

    Everything is going great until death hits David's Fourth of July party. Though the victim is an employee of David's, Clare disagrees with the police as to whom the intended victim was meant to be.

    I love these mysteries, as they're filled with coffee facts that are detailed and thoroughly engaging reading. In this book, there are also fun facts about the Hamptons with the rich and famous. Once again, the mystery is exciting and full of red herrings. "Madam's" role in this book is greater, with this spunky 80 something character, who is just endearing. One of the best cozy series around!

    "Nicely done."

    I wasn't expecting this series to pan out into something I could enjoy. But, I'm happily mistaken.

    There were parts of the book that didn't make a lot of sense to me.. for instance, why would this female just hop right in and start right in investigating before the police? That wasn't answered for me.

    Other than those few questions though, the book was a delightful cozy who-dun-it. The mystery was great and the writing is maturing nicely.

    I've really enjoyed the narrator in this series. She does a superb job on the voices and makes the characters come alive.

    Yes, I can wholeheartedly recommend this book and can honestly say I look forward to listening to the rest of the series now!

    "50-50"

    This book has two parts. One is a reasonably interesting murder mystery. The other half consists of extremely long, tedious, unbelievable garbage about "gourmet coffees". The writing is not of a high literary quality, but not objectionable. If abridged it might well be worth listening to. In its present form it tests one's stamina to keep listening to it.

    "She needs a good editor!"

    My husband and I listen to books while we work (our own business) and we WANT to love her books. But we now tried four of them and think we may stop -- Coyle needs an editor. She repeats herself way too often in the same book, telling us over and over again how her main character is jealous of her ex-husband (really? grow up -- should have been dealt with in book one) and if we are now chiming in about certain phrases ("strong jaw" "hard pecs" "good doctor" "Looks like Sean Connory") because they are over-used. Her stories are not bad -- she spins a good yarn -- but if her editor can't do their job then she should pay for her own. Also, a grown woman who never ever sleeps with anyone? She wants to but doesn't? Give me a break. We are moving on --
    Excellent narrator!

    "It was pretty good"

    This book started out a little different then the others in serires because they are not in New York, but it still had the great "make you want a coffee" feeling. I love that about the books, it as if you can solve anything with a good cup of joe. Loved the setting and the desciptions of the places and people. The only thing I seem to have trouble with is how quickly she falls in love with the new boyfriends, but still wants to hang on to a notion that her and Detective Mike might have a chance. I do like the interaction between mom and daughter but she really has to chill out, she started sounding in the shrill part of momhood. I've only listened to the audio books with this series and actually quite like them. I listen while I'm working so its perfect way to keep in touch with reading.

    "Like an enjoyable puzzle"

    A good, lighthearted murder mystery. Wonderfully rich plot with enough twists and turns to keep me guessing whodunit until the very end!

    "I wanted to slap a fictional character"

    As soon as they introduced the killer i figured it out. The author just didn't try. She ran around accusing eveyone and spun theories. Very over this series.

    "Better at the end"

    This fourth book began in a truly disturbing way, I was repeatedly annoyed by the neurotic tones of the main character, especially with her relationship with her ex-husband. After she had slept with him in the last book, I expected them to try to work things out, but she so unfairly tears him down constantly then puts on a victim mentality. She pushes him away, insist that he goes towards Brianne Summers, then scorn, disdains and ridicules him when she sees them together. All I'm saying is that he is an ass but so is she. In this book, she kept judging everyone, jumped to the wrong conclusions repeatedly and annoyingly put herself in unnecessary danger. It was annoying. Towards the end the book redeemed itself though and I began to enjoy it a bit more. All in all I've enjoyed the series, I've read that the writing does get better later on in the series so I am excited about this.
