Murder Most Frothy | [Cleo Coyle]

Murder Most Frothy

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.

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.

    Story
    "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!

    "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!

    Story
    "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.

    "NICE COZY MYSTERY"
    What made the experience of listening to Murder Most Frothy the most enjoyable?

    GREAT JOB BY THE NARRATOR AND CLEO DID A WONDERFUL JOB IN A NICE MYSTERY. THIS IS MY FIRST LISTEN TO HER BOOKS, IT WILL NOT BE THE LAST.


    What did you like best about this story?

    LAUGHABLE AND WELL LAID OUT AS A THRILLER, GET TO USE YOUR BRAIN AND ARE NOT ASSAULTED WITH DIRTY LANGUAGE AND SITUATIONS. REAL LIFE HAS ENOUGH OF THAT, WATCH THE NEWS. THIS IS A NICE GET AWAY, LEAVE ME A LONE I AM LISTENING TO MY FAVORITE STORIES. THIS IS A PRETTY QUITE HOUSEHOLD. AUDIBLE DOES A FINE JOB IN AUTHORS, NEED MORE COZY MYSTERY'S.


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

    THE NARRATION IS WHAT GIVE YOU A LOVE FOR THE BOOK. DIFFERENT CHARACTERS ARE DONE WELL. KEEPS ME CAPTIVATED.


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

    YES


    Any additional comments?

    KEEP THEM COMING!

    "It was OK!"
    Would you try another book from Cleo Coyle and/or Rebecca Gibel?

    Yes, it was a nice lite mystery and I like all kinds so I will try another.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Less coffee talk, the same as with the authors that have too much recipe talk for food. It gets nauseating after a while.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes, the narration was well done.


    Do you think Murder Most Frothy needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I can't say.


    Any additional comments?

    no
