Through the Grinder is the second novel in the Coffeehouse Mysteries by Cleo Coyle. This is a good series, I' ve enjoyed both books that I've read so far.
Through the Grinder finds our heroine, Clare Cosi, manager of the Village Blend Coffeehouse in New York City, falling in love with a new man in her life. But strange things are happening to women who frequent the coffeehouse. They seem to be committing suicide right and left, like an epidemic. It looks to be too much of a coincidence, and foul play is finally suspected. And when Clare's new beau is suspect number one, it is up to Clare to prove that he is innocent.
This is a good book, it kept me guessing right up to the ending. There was also a little twist at the end, something I wasn't quite expecting. I enjoyed the book very much.
Another nice feature of the Coffeehouse Mysteries is the coffee-making tips sprinkled throughout the book, and the recipes at the end of the story. I have the book in paperback, and it is 270 pages in length.
The Coffeehouse Mysteries are turning out to be a very entertaining series to read for me. I have enjoyed what I've read so far and have already started another book from this series.
