Publisher's Summary

When the firefighters of Ladder Company 189 pull Clare's friends out of a blazing cafe, she happily comes to their rescue. As a favor to the men, she visits their firehouse kitchen to teach them the finer points of operating their newly donated espresso machine. But more than their coffee turns out to be hot. Somebody's torching cafes around the city, and firefighters are beginning to die in suspicious ways....

Believing the two events are related, Clare investigates, staking out a five-borough bake sale and sniffing out clues in the pizza joints of Brooklyn. When her detective boyfriend, Mike Quinn, is pulled into the fire of a false accusation, Clare is desperate to put out the flames. But will she be able to come to Mike's rescue before someone tries to extinguish her?

    "NOT Awful :-) !"

    I've read and listened to a lot of the Cleo Coyle Coffee House Mysteries. Love them. It is set in a compolitan background with lots of different accents: Brooklyn, NJ, English, French, Italian....
    Interesting plot and satifying ending.

    "A Salute to Fire Fighters"

    This story gets off to a fast and frightening start when Clare and two friends are trapped in a fire while visiting a coffee house owned by an acquaintance. They are rescued by the FDNY.

    Fire fighters are key characters in the plot and I found that aspect of the story interesting.

    I loved the first book of this series that I read (Murder by Mocha). I did not like this one quite as much for reasons that are particular to me. I enjoy stories about amateur detective . However, I do not enjoy it when the amateur detective puts herself in danger while following a "hunch". That occurs several times in this story.

    I will give this series another try. The core characters are colorful and interesting. The mysteries are intricate and move along at a steady pace.

    Narrator Rebecca Gibel has a clear voice and excellent diction.

    Story
    "Firefighters play a big part in this cozy mystery-"

    Clare Cosi of the NY Village Blend coffeehouse is back into detecting murder. This time she, her famed mother-in-law, and another of her employees are caught in a fire bomb at another coffeehouse. Their good friend and artist ends up in a coma and the fire investigator is not convinced that a firebomb started the fire. But when one of the firefighters looses his life in a second coffeehouse fire, the search begins for this serial arsonist.

    This series is always exciting and informative. This book is dedicated to firefighters and their families everywhere, but especially to all those men and women who fought the blazes after the 9/11 tragedy. The authors do a great job humanizing these firefighters--one of which is the fictional brazen cousin of Clare's policeman boyfriend. These cousins' relationship has been less than friendly in the past. We learn about their history in this mystery.

    I highly recommend this series. It's also filled with delicious recepies. I've been listening to the audio version of these books, and have found the reader adds a great deal to my enjoyment.
