Would there ever be audiobooks of the Haunted Bookshop Mysteries?Hi, Cleo! I love Rebecca Gibel's narration of the Coffeehouse Mysteries that's why I'm wondering if there would ever be audiobook versions of your Haunted Bookshop series. Would be really nice to hear Jack Shepard's voice. :)
In Love With Your Books!The first book I picked up and read a little bit of was Latte Trouble. I red the back, prologue, and a little of chapter 1. I then proceeded to check out the books from my local library until I am able to own them to read over and over, and I must tell you that I am so hooked! On What Grounds grabbed my attention and lately these days, its hard to find a good book that grabs my attention. I just absolutely love it and I wanna read more and more! :D Sincerely, Holly T.
CoffeeDo you serve the Indonesian coffee Kopi Luwak? Sells at $500.00 a pound. However, in Indonesia a cup of it only costs @1.00.You might include this info in one of your novels.
Haunted Bookshop Mysteries
Would someone please address the "mystery" of the missing Haunted Bookshop book - The Ghost & the Bougus Bestseller?...
Cleo's (Alice's) reply -
Sure, I'll address it...(I'm the co-author, Alice Alfonsi...)
Marc and I are looking forward to getting more Haunted Bookshop titles into your hands. We appreciate our readers' patience. The books are coming...maybe not as fast as you would like, but the new titles are in the works, and (as I said), we appreciate your kind patience.
In the meantime, thanks for asking, and you can always check in with our ghost. He's on facebook and you might enjoy talking with him. Click here to see: https://www.facebook.com/JackShepardGhost
For those of you wondering what we're talking about: Cleo Coyle writes a second mystery series under the name Alice Kimberly. Five books have been published thus far in the Haunted Bookshop Mysteries, with many more under contract with our publisher Penguin.
If you count yourself among the readers waiting for more books in this series, including the new one, The Ghost and the Bogus Bestseller (which, in fact, has not yet been published), be sure to look for the ones that actually have been published to date. These books, listed below, tell a story in order, and you may have missed reading one or two of the titles. As the authors, we hope you'll support the series as active fans by buying and reading all of the books.
Here are the titles in order...
The Haunted Bookshop Mysteries
Book #1 - The Ghost and Mrs. McClure
Book #2 - The Ghost and the Dead Deb
Book #3 - The Ghost and the Dead Man's Library
Book #4 - The Ghost and the Femme Fatale
Book #5 - The Ghost and the Haunted Mansion
The books can be purchased online in either print or e-book format. Amazon, Barnes and Noble.com and many other bookstores sell the titles. Your local bookstore can also order them directly from Penguin.
As for the next book in the series...
Book #6 -
The Ghost and the Bogus Bestseller...
This new titles is in the works with many more titles under contract with Penguin.
Read with "spirited" joy!
~ Cleo (Alice)
Note to Cleo - haunted bookshopHi Cleo, when will the next bookshop mystery be released? I love Pen and Jack!
Best Author Website!This website is incredible. I'm reading "A brew to a kill' and came here to find caramel latter cupcake recipe. Do you have cats in any of your books. Only joking, but cozy mysteries usually have food and cats, and I love both. I plan to now read the rest of your books. Amy I blog very short stories at http:/amy-solittletime.blogspot.com

We, of course, thought of your wonderful recipes in the Coffee House books and in hopes you would have an index of recipes in them, came here to check. The first thing we saw was the post for the Leftover Cranberry Sauce Holiday Pastries. There is the recipe we wanted! We Never have Leftover Cranberry Sauce. This recipe looks Great too, so I did get the PDF. The 3 Lanes Catherine of Texas

Note to Cleo - wishing a perfect doppio your way..
I am a delighted fan - I got two of the Coffeehouse Mysteries from my library and I LOVE them!!! Took me about 2 days to get through one (I have writer's brain now). I had no idea there where so many layers to the coffee world. And your writing is just so Entertaining and the recipes are delizioso. Much love and chocolate, Ariana :)
Cleo's reply -
Thank you, Ariana! What a lovely comment...and may I wish you the very same ~ a perfect doppio with a sweet chocolate kiss.
And speaking of chocolate kisses, here is my recipe for Little Chocolate Clouds...enjoy...

Holiday Buzz not in audio
I spend a lot of time in my car, so I have listened to all of the coffeehouse mysteries in audio. I am disappointed that Holiday Buzz does not offer an audio version. Will it ever be offered in an audio version?
Cleo's reply -
Thank you for the note. I'm delighted to hear that you're enjoying the books in audio. The producer AudioGo (BBC Audiobooks America) has done a terrific job. The books are not just read, they're performed by a very talented actress named Rebecca Gibel. (I especially love her voice for Madame.)
Holiday Buzz will be released in audiobook form at the end of this year (2013), in time for Christmas and Hanukkah. I can't wait to hear Rebecca perform the book, and I hope you enjoy it, too.
In the meantime, for those interested in the audio versions. You can download them via favorite audio online sellers or check out the link to see the entire series in audio at AudioGo's official site by...
Thanks again for dropping by my virtual coffeehouse.
May you always drink
(and read) with joy...

Just got an audio book for my trip. I was very interested in the name that you use....Cleo Coyle....My father was Tom Coyle and he had a sister Cleo and he was from western Pennsylvania. He had a large family and sisters Frances and Lois and brothers Bert, Bob and John. I don't remember Cleo well but wonder if that is where the name came from. I would be interested in hearing from you. Kay Coyle Gage ......email@example.com
