Thank you!

Love the series of coffeehouse mysteries! Great stories with believable details. I love coffee and appreciate the recipes and brewing tips. I have to drink decaf due to health issues with caffeine so I really giggled over the baristas attitude. If it helps any, I really miss the caffeine! ??
July 24, 2017

Great Find!

Hi! Just thought I would let you k ow how much I am enjoying this series. I am a Espresso/Cappuccino Lover and Mystery Lover. After reading so many really dark books lately, it is nice to find these. I am listening to the audio versions while I exercise. Love the gal's voice that narrates them. She fits perfectly with Clare.

Dead to the Last Drop ... and an incredible read! Thank you!

What an amazingly intriguing, fun and informational read! You are incredible writers! I have read all of the coffee house cozies up to and almost through Dead to the Last Drop. Of course I will continue reading the series too. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading each and every one. I particularly enjoy the way your heroine, Claire, grows, matures, changes. She has many of the same concerns, issues and attitudes that we all have. Although, she does have a great deal more excitement in her life than I do. Thank you for all of your gifts...every book, all the history, the websites and especially the recipes! I cannot imagine all the research you do for each book. Stay well and keep on writing! YOU are a gift to all of us.

#16 "DEAD COLD BREW" (Spoiler!! something EXCITING happens in #16!!)

JUST finished #16 - DEAD COLD BREW and LOVED IT!!!!!! have read ALL of the series!!!! Have to tell you, reading about the surprise engagement, Mike did for Clare just had me ALL SMILES…ok, a few tears, but good tears! I LOVED that scene!!!!! “Did you think you could get away with it? she demanded, rattling the cuffs like a dungeon mistress. … … “This is serious, Clare. In New York State, stealing a police detective’s heart is a Class A felony.” I LOVED THIS SCENE!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I will miss Clare and Mike and Matt and the gang, but will be waiting in line for the next installment!! ok, now it's time to look up some of your recipes! I love the food you cook and talk about almost as much as the stories!!! LOL! Joe E.

A Couple that listens (reads) together stays together

My Husband and I love your books and listen together on Audible while driving or in the evenings. We own a business together that keeps us busy but "solving" your mysteries (or trying to figure them out) together gives us some down time. Great to know that they are written by a couple too!!

Brownies for you...

I read...and loved reading "Dead to the Last Drop" also... As I read the book, I found I was CRAVING gallons of coffee and Luther's bourbon brownies!...Truly enjoyed the book and plan to cook the cherry pork tenderloin recipe next.

Cleo's reply -

Hello anonymous reader! I'm sincerely delighted to know that you enjoyed Dead to the Last Drop. Thank you for letting me know! Very kind of you. As for those Bourbon Brownies, they have been (temporarily) replaced with a quick and easy recipe for Kahlua Brownies. Why? Because the Bourbon Brownies recipe simply was not good enough to share with you and other readers. Not yet, anyway. Stay subscribed to my newsletter and I'll let you know when it *is* good enough. :)

In the meantime, enjoy this brownie recipe (and my affogato talk) at the link below...

Love your books...

Started with book 1 two months ago, On What Grounds, and am reading through the entire series. Loving it, thank you for writing such wonderful books. Found your website and am excited to try some of your recipes. Please don't stop writing! --Karen

Cleo's reply -

Thank you, Karen! I sincerely appreciate your taking the time and trouble to drop by my message board and let me know how much you enjoyed On What Grounds. I'm always delighted to meet a new "customer" of our beloved Village Blend. As for our writing...I am pleased to tell you that my husband and I are now working on the next book in the series, Coffeehouse Mystery #17, which will be published in 2018. Maybe you'll be caught up in your reading by then; and, if so, we hope you enjoy the new mystery!

Blueberry Mate Bait - Cleo Replies (with Photo)

Well into making this when I noticed early in the recipe you say to reserve 1 cup of crumb mixture. At end of recipe you say to sprinkle the reserved 3/4 cup! Yikes, which was it? Also directions say to line pan with parchment and at end you say to pour batter in greased and floured pan. Again...which was it? It's in the oven as I type and I hope it turns out okay.

Cleo's reply - 1 cup is correct (however, anyone who reserves 3/4 cup of crumb mixture instead of 1 cup will still get a nice result, the difference is negligble in the recipe). Parchment paper will work better than a "greased and floured" pan, but the recipe will work either way. Corrections to these typos are being made for the new editions--but, again, either way the recipe will work.

Below is a photo of how my 

Blueberry Mate Bait looked after baking.

It's an amazingly delicious coffee cake!

OH, FUDGE!

Last week I made the Bailey's Irish Cream and Caramel-Nut Fudge and sent it to work with my husband. He travels to different locations and generally spends about one hour at each. The container was empty before he left! It was that good! So, last night (since we didn't have any more Bailey's and it was Sunday) I made the fudge using Kahlua instead. WOW! Thank you for all the wonderful recipes you have in the books and on your website.

Recipe Book

I hope that one day you will have a book with all your recipes! By the time I print them all out and get them into a binder maybe you will! The audio books have been wonderful for my road trips! I live quite a way from my parents and children so find myself driving distances that enable me to get at least one book (depending on who I am visiting) listened to! Rebecca Gibel does an excellent job of narrating! Thank you for so many hours of enjoyment!

LOVE the Secret Family Recipe

Love your April Fools-I fell for it! Also love your Coffeehouse Mysteries. I anxiously await for each new rollout. (I don't use Facebook but I always look forward to your emails for the latest.)

I LOVED THE BUTTER ON A STICK POST. VERY CUTE

I was really hoping that you had found a way to control the butter inside of some food product. I love butter and my Mom said as a kid, I ate it as is. She would have us shake a jar of cream and we would make butter often and after it was rinsed and salted, my sister and I always wanted to share it. It never looked like a lot (from a pint of cream) after made but even shared it was too much some times. I know Paula Dean was using butter in some friend recipes so you just topped her. Great April 1 column. Love, Cynthia

Where do I comment for the contests?

Call me crazy, but I cannot figure out where I am supposed to comment to enter the contests! Is it where it says "Comments" when it gives the poll results? I did comment there, but there are only 14 additional comments, so I'm not sure I have the right place. Help!! I want to enter your contests :) PS: I am on Coffeehouse Mystery #12 and loving them. Just started reading them in the fall, and I am hooked. I run a book club for our middle school staff, and I am considering having us all read the Coffeehouse Mysteries for all 10 months next year, and then making some of the recipes when we gather for book talking. ~Sarah

Looking forward to many hours of great reading and trying some great recipes.
