Book 16 in the Coffeehouse Mysteries
by Cleo Coyle

Coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi sheds tears of joy when her NYPD detective boyfriend surprises her with an engagement ring. But her bridal bliss is put on hold when a chilling mystery brings a wave of deadly danger to those she holds dear...
After everything Clare and Mike have been through, they deserve a little bit of happily ever after. So when Mike decides to put a ring on Clare's finger, Clare's eccentric octogenarian employer is there to help. She donates the perfect coffee-colored diamonds to include in the setting and the name of a world-famous jeweler who happens to be an old family friend. But while the engagement is steeped in perfection, the celebration is not long lived. 
First, a grim-faced attorney interrupts their party with a mysterious letter bequeathing a strange, hidden treasure to Clare's daughter. Next, the renowned jeweler who designed Clare's ring is found poisoned in his shop. Both events appear to be connected to a cold case murder involving a sunken ship, an Italian curse, a suspiciously charming jewel thief, and a shocking family secret. With deadly trouble brewing, Clare must track down clues in some of New York's most secret places before an old vendetta starts producing fresh corpses.
With recipes to die for, including how to make cold-brew coffee at home!

  3. CONGRATULATIONS to Cleo and Marc on the release today of Dead Cold Brew. I cannot wait to begin reading. I hope to have a few quiet days after tomorrow where I should be able to get into the book and hopefully finish it by Sunday. Fingers crossed!!! Lisa's review makes me want to say to heck with me making dinner tonight and just settling in with my new book, but.... although tempting, I wouldn't neglect my kitchen duties.
    Continued success with this fabulous series. It is amazing as you two both are.
