This is another enjoyable installment in the Coffeehouse Mysteries by Cleo Coyle. It is the fourth in the series, and I found it to be just as entertaining as the previous books I have read in this series.
Clare Cosi manages the Village Blend, a coffeehouse in New York City. But in this novel, we find her in the ritzy Hamptons, where she is helping out her millionaire friend, David Mintzer. Clare is instructing his restaurant staff and also tending the coffee bar at some of David's gala events. When one of David's employees turns up dead in David's bathroom at a Fourth of July celebration, Clare is concerned for David's life, as she feels that David was the actual target, since the death occurred in his bathroom and the victim, from a distance, looks a lot like David. She sets out to prove her theory and find the killer. It doesn't hurt matters that Clare also finds someone to entertain her during her summer in the Hamptons.
I found Murder Most Frothy to be an enjoyable and fun book to read. I have enjoyed the Coffeehouse Mystery series and am looking forward to reading another book from this set. This novel was 247 pages long, with recipes at the end and some coffee-making tips scattered throughout the book.
If you are looking for a lighthearted murder mystery, Murder Most Frothy will be sure to satisfy.
