Lately, I've been into reading mysteries that are part of a running series. I find them really enjoyable. Latte Trouble is written by Cleo Coyle, and it is one of her coffeehouse mysteries. There are recipes in the back of the book along with coffee trivia scattered throughout the book.
Clare Cosi is managing a coffeehouse called The Village Blend and enjoying it very much. What she doesn't enjoy is running into an occasional murder. In Latte Trouble, The Village Blend is hosting a special show featuring a new line of jewelry using the colors of coffee and actual coffee beans. The place is packed and everything seems to be going well, until one of the guests is poisoned after drinking some of Clare's coffee. An employee of Village Blend, who knew the victim on an intimate basis, is the suspect, and Clare is concerned with clearing his name and saving the reputation of The Village Blend.
I am not a big coffee drinker, but I really do enjoy these coffeehouse mysteries. Clare Cosi is a fun heroine, and the other characters in the series are very entertaining. Every time a new coffeehouse mystery comes along, I intend to read it. This was a good novel in the series and kept me thinking as to who the killer was. Latte Trouble was just an all-around enjoyable book.
