Love the books! I saw on Amazon that book 8 (Holiday Grind) is coming out this fall!
Cleo's reply: YES. The cover for my new Coffeehouse Mystery HOLIDAY GRIND just posted on Amazon. This is an early version of the cover, not final, but since Amazon is posting, I guess I better, too! Stay tuned for the final cover soon...

JUST A NOTE
I would just like to say that I devour books especially mysteries. I have read countless mysteries by countless authors. CLEO COYLE/ ALICE KIMBERLY is/are the only author(s) that I can't figure out "who done it" before the end. The closest I have gotten was in LATTE TROUBLE. I figured out the who but not the why. These two series keep me thoroughly entertained.
I won last month's giveaway!
Thank you ever so much for your giveaway last month. I won a pound of La Minita Estate Costa Rican coffee from Rooster Brother in Maine. It was a delicious coffee, full bodied and happy. Great aroma. Thank you so much for sharing it! And Mike, from Rooster Brother...you are awesome! Keep up the good work. i hope to wander to your neck of the woods soon.
Waiting for your next book!
I've loved all your Coffeehouse books. When will we get to see another one!
AeroPress SeattleMay 1 - take it along with - very transportable and let them try it out! They may want to keep it though???
Derby Coffee??I cannot wait for the next Coffeehouse Mystery and the next Haunted Series! I have loved each one! The Aero Press Coffee Maker is something new to me..but since this is Derby day, I just wondered what the coffee of the day would be!!
Aero Press Coffee MakerThe Aero Press is the greatest. I've thrown away my espresso maker, drip maker, and French press. The only problem is that I'm visiting friends in a few days and wonder if I will be able to stand their coffee.....
A Note From Mike at Rooster Brother
RE-POSTED FROM E-MAIL TO CLEO's MAILBOX:
We have been enjoying reading your virtual Village Blend website and keeping up with news from the coffee world. We have a regular customer who, when he was in recently, tried La Minita for the first time because it turns out he is a fan of Cleo! Thanks!!

Guide to Coffee and Chocolate Pairings
Greetings from drought-stricken, wildfire-smoked central Florida. (The EPA / Lung Association gave us a "D" and an "F" in the 2009 report of city air quality while the local news gave us a 'green' for good.) I recently ran across an interesting Guide to Coffee and Chocolate Pairings at the Equal Exchange while looking for ways to support my new-to-me-vegan lifestyle. www.equalexchange.coop/a-guide-to-chocolate-and-coffee-pairing
Aero Press Coffee Maker
I just bought an Aero Press Expresso maker - and wondered if anyone out there has tried it. got it off Amazon - live in Seattle and could get it with my grocery order - rather good I thought!
Great booksLove them all so far. Can not want for the next one Angela
ChelleHey thanks so much! I will be checking that series out. It's always great to get recommendations from others. I have one for you. Kate white has a series out that is very good! Don't know if you haven't read her. But, the first one is " If looks could kill" . I can't wait for cleo to come out with her new one. They are fantastic! Stay warm in Canada, because it's hot down here in Texas. Happy reading and thanks again! Sweettexas
Found your books when I was in the hospital with my Mom while she was recovering from a stroke. A nurse's aide had lent me her copy of the first book and I was in bliss. They took my mind off my slumbering Mom and made time pass a bit smoother. Can't wait to read more about Pen and Jack. Mom likes hearing about Jack and your descriptions of 40's New York. They remind her of when she was a kid. (Born in 42.) Keep the lead to the paper and the writers block knocked down.
PS Seymour acts just like a couple guys I know at work. You have us letter carriers pegged down beautifully.
Chocolate Mystery Series
hi sweettexas, I'm not cleo but I do happen to know there is a chocoholic mystery series out there already, I collect it and it's delicious. It's full of chocolate facts and it's based around a Chocolate shop. It's by Joanna Carl a sudonom for Sandstrom I forgot her first name now. and it's called her chocaholic series, Lee McKinny is the main character a blonde texas girl who's an ex beauty queen but pefers small town life.
Chelle in Canada :-) congrats on the pregnancy btw
2nd post form Chelle: you can find out about the series by visiting www.joannacarl.com and by the way her first name is Eva. I looked it up. hope you like it as much as I do :-)
Love your coffeehouse mysteries! What a brilliant writer! Your website is great and entertaining too! Thanks for giving all of us fans a great story and great website! My question for you is: Have you ever thought about writing a series based on chocolate? That would be so much fun, since there are so many chocoholics out there, including my pregnant self. Just a thought!
Thanks from Sweettexas!
oh oh oh matteo and Jack
ooohhhhh I wish him and Clare to work things out, Madame is my favorite character and I agree Clare and Matt belong together.. and as for Mr.Jack PI love your Haunted Bookshop mysteries, I read them first and then attacked your Coffeehouse mysteries. I'm about to head over to Barnes and Noble to buy French Pressed and Expresso Shot... oh I hope Bree bites the bullet ... or Clare just cats her out of Matt's life!
:) Great books!
I love them <3

Cleo's reply: Hi C! Got the e-mail! LOL! No worries. I'm just under deadline at the moment - finishing up work on the new Coffeehouse book - to come out this November (and the writing has to come before all, as it pays my bills)! Will reply soon - (to you and so many other great folks awaiting replies). Thanks again, loved the kitty pics! - Cleo
You would have no idea how long I have tried to look for books that could satisfy my Mystery-Craving AND Coffee-Craving. Your works are absolutely a sight for sore eyes! Someday soon, I promise I will get all your books.
Writing & TVHowdy Cleo. I would just like your input on a new TV series about a writer: Castle (on Mondays). Catherine of Amarillo, Texas
Input on TV from Texas
I agree with Cleo about TV being a good idea for her stories. I grew up in the TV Generation of the 60s & 70s. My dad was a transmitter engineer. If I saw a series or movie based on a book, I always liked to get the book & compare. Most screen plays often do the writer justice (although obviously Hollywoodised) Michael Landen in "Little House on the Prairie, for instance. Many of the televised versions had me "writing my own version," however, most of the books did not. Then there were those stories that started out as screen plays (Star Wars, Star Trek) that turned into series of books, most of which are very interesing & continue the life stories. I suggest that teachers should point this out to their students. I also know of a private site that encourages "Fan Fiction" as a form of therapy that to my knowledge helps students through tough times.
