Murder by Mocha is the 10th mystery novel in The Coffeehouse Mysteries series by author Cleo Coyle.
Clare’s Village Blend coffee beans are being used to create a new java love potion: “Magic Coffee Mocha”, marketed as an aphrodisiac. The product, which is expected to gross millions of dollars, will be sold exclusively on Aphrodite’s Village, one of the most popular online communities for women. At launch, one of the site’s editors was murdered. Clare believes a cynical killer wants the secret recipe. Can she catch who is loco for mocha?
If terrific coffee drinks were not enough, the. Village Blend Coffee shop in New York has decided to team up with a superb chocolate company to market a new blend guaranteed to get the romantic juices flowing. Clare, the store’s manager, is not convinced that this is a great idea but the store’s owner, Madame, also Clare’s mother in law, has already set the deal up with one of her long time friends–Alicia. But when the event to publicize the product brings Alicia running to Clare’s hotel room because of a dead body in her bed, Clare really knows mischief is stalking this product.
Someone is definitely trying to defeat the start of this new product as more bodies appear. There is also something suspiciously wrong with this new blend. Could there be an illegal substance hidden within this new yummy drink? Clare and all the usual characters from these coffee house mysteries team up again to find the culprit. Clare and her daughter are also becoming more involved with their love interests–both policeman. This time, the police department is having problems of it’s own.
Always fun and intriguingly involved with coffee facts and New York life, once again the Cleo Coyle husband and wife team have created a fascinating cozy mystery filled with recipes! The personal lives of the characters become more and more involved with every book, but the mystery always drives each story. I find that the audio version of these books really adds drama to already excellent books.
The mystery begins at the beginning of this book, and continues until the end. Clare Cosi runs a coffee shop. She is also an amateur detective whose significant other is a detective for the New York Police Department. Clare’s adventures as a detective are perhaps unlikely, but very enjoyable. She is intelligent and often sensitive enough not to put her life in danger.
This book has enough twists and interesting characters to keep me entertained and interested. I find Clare a lovable protagonist. Narrator Rebecca Gibel has a pleasant voice and a talent for skillfully voicing the character.
