hooked on haunted bookshop

Hi

I like just about everybody that has started to read the books am hooked. I went to a used bookstore and bought the 2nd one. I then bought the first one (i work in a bookstore. I read the first one and was so hooked. I could not put down the books. I had to order the 3rd one and after it came in I read the 3rd,4th,and 5th in less than a week—with working full-time, having my sister and her 3 boys visiting. I also had my sister read the 1st one and she was hooked as well. We are both waiting for the next one to come out. Please write more. I also like "Bookmark" I love cats.

Haunted Bookstore series on TV, too!!!

This series would be wonderful on TV as well. Wonderful stories with great chemistry between the characters, and fantastic period pieces scenes. TV needs more series based on interesting characters like these.

'British Person' comes out!

Hi,

I'm Karen, from Devon England, the accidentally anonymous 'British Person' who asked about e-books a while back.

I've finished reading the series now, though I had to buy two in paperback - they were available in another format but my old PDA did not have enough memory to cope with it. I hope the next book will be out soon - in whatever format. I am a complete coffee convert since picking up a second-hand espresso machine in a thrift shop, and if any cafe owners are reading, making good coffee at home has greatly increased the amount I spend in coffee shops - sell coffee gear, people - it all comes back to you! I'd much rather have bought my grinder etc from a good local shop where I could have talked coffee and got good advice, rather than Starbucks or a kitchen shop. I loved the books for the coffee atmosphere and info as much as the actual story, but like all enjoyable novels, the characters are real people. I'd be sad if Clare and Mike were doomed to keep having problems just because you don't want to spoil the dramatic tension though....

Wonderful new series for me

Hi Cleo,

Amazon recommended your Haunted Bookshop Mysteries due to other mysteries I have purchased and enjoyed. I read The Ghost and Mrs. McClure, and I was hooked immediately. I have read the rest of the series and have ordered #1 in the Coffeehouse Mysteries. I so enjoy the crime solving and the evolving relationship of Pen and Jack, but also enjoy the other characters you have crafted so skillfully. I tried to slowly savor each book, but I devoured them quickly. I can't wait until the next book is released, and I am looking forward to reading your other series.

Keep them coming,
Sue from Pennsylvania

Yes! to TV!

I'm chiming in late, but I just want to give more support to the idea of exploring TV as a new medium for your coffee house mystery stories. I've always thought that this mix of truly amazing characters, awesome setting and engaging stories would would work really well on TV. That said, I hope you continue to write your novels. I would not stop reading them and recommending them to friends and family.

Good Luck!

Stew

I am looking for the recipe for the coffee infused beef stew that was on Decaffeinated Corpse, I borrowed the book and forgot to right it down, Would you have it anywhere here?

Cleo's reply: 

YES! Oh, yes! I know the answer!

You can find that delicious recipe for Coffee-infused Beef Stew (aka Carne Con Café or "Matt's Ragout") along with a recipe for Clare's Cappuccino Muffins and more in the recipe section of Decaffeinated Corpse (Coffeehouse Mystery #5).

See the cover (right) >>>>>>>>

Maple coffee

Hi Cleo; Have you ever had maple flavored coffee? We have a great restaurant here in N.H.called Parker's Maple Grove and they serve maple flavored coffee. It's a nice, full bodied blend with just a hint of maple. They also sell it by the pound so you can brew it at home. I've read all your Coffeehouse books and I'm starting on the Haunted Bookshop books. Please keep them coming.

books into movies.

Sydney Poitier is the closest to the book in movies The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and To Sir With Love. One could only hope that your books would get into a screen writer that had only your books in mind. I think of the BBC series As Time Goes By, were one of the stars is a writer whose book becomes a mini series.The whole time it is being produced Linoel keeps lamenting that the movie is NOT LIKE HIS Book. Where ever this turns out I hope it stays your book. Good luck from a teacher of Literature of 40 plus years.

coffee shop books

Making these books into a TV series would be all positive!

Hi Cleo,

"Teach" here. Having taught students of all ages for the past few years, I can tell you that a Coffeehouse TV series would only HELP reluctant readers get into your books! I agree with you completly!

Some of these kids are so hesitant to open a book that any kind of exposure (to the characters and themes you're trying to get across as a teacher), especially a visual, aides in your cause. Your idea that any medium will help in this is true.

I cannot tell you how hard it is to get an elementary student interested in any book other than Harry Potter or The Chronicles of Narnia. Why? Because of the movies. They know most of the story and although they may not be exactly as the book's story, it helps them comprehend other issues and events that may have been left out.

So, from a teacher, I say TV series? Movies? Bring it on! It only makes my job as a teacher more versatile.

Love your books and love your thoughts on this topic!

—Teach in Cali

PS: My old stovetop espresso (Sept.08 message) gave its final doppio last month. For now, I'm living off my french press. Going from espresso to "drip" has been difficult. Any hints on how to make the perfect cuppa?

Starbuck's Via (Why wait?)

Hi Cleo. You do not have to wait until Via comes to New York to try it. You can go to www.starbucksstore.com and order yours now. You can order just the packets, 6pk, 12pk or 24pk. My suggestion is to get the 6 pack & the tumbler that is special made for the Via for $21.95, It is currently available in Columbia & Italian only. It is as good as most brewed coffees, but does not hold a candle to a french press. It is extremely convenient when you are out late, or in uncharted territory and you can't find a coffeehouse. Hope this helps. BTW I have read all of the coffeehouse books. I will have to give the "Alice Kimberly" books. Let me know what you think after you've tried it.

Could It Be True...

I've been surfing my online bookstores for information on all the new releases, and I discovered a wonderful treat. According to Amazon.com, the next Coffeehouse Mystery book is called HOLIDAY GRIND and is due for release on November 3rd, 2009. Could it be true? Please confirm. If it is true, my longing for a new Coffeehouse book curbed... for at least a week or so. LOL. Your avid reader and java junkie

From your devoted fan

Dear Cleo, Oh my gosh, how can I thank you for all the wonderful hours I have spent reading your awesome books???? Please tell me when the next on is coming out...I have also "hooked" my daughter-in-law on the wonderful adventures of Mateo, Joy, and most of all Clare!!! All people I wish I knew in real life. Needless to say, I have all your books, and am anxiously awaiting the latest installment. Thanks again for much happiness.

Thanks for many hours of reading pleasure!

I began reading your work with the Haunted Bookshop mysteries and have now worked my way through the first 6 Coffeehouse mysteries. Thank you for creating such wonderfully likeable characters. Reading your books is one of my very favorite ways to de-stress. :)

Thanks Cleo!!!

thank you for sharing my story with your readers!...I am such a huge fan of your stuff and this is the biggest compliment I could ever get! Regarding Sheena - I am sorry for your loss...thats huge! To anyone looking for a new kitties I suggest you check and see what sort of older kitties your local SPCA has. We picked up two older siamese brothers (ben and jerry) and the human society was actually giving them away. No fees - because most people want a kitten. But an older cat has an established personality - known history (medical etc) and are ready to love you too.

Cats and Dogs

My sympathies on Sheena's death. We had out own Cleocatra, a Siamese, that ruled our house for 16 years. We haven't gotten another kitty yet but I'm beginning to think it's time. I tried the Moon Doggie coffe, I ordered the decaf Sumatran and I must admit that it's pretty darn good. If I can't have caffeine for another 4 months, at least I can have good coffee!

Topless Coffeehouse

I cannot believe this could pass the health code. I am not against looking at a healthy young man but not with my coffee, please. I hope this does not become a trend. This okay on a beach or elsewhere but not in a coffee shop or eatery.

a little confrontation with my coffee

Hey cleo -

Davida here, winner of your 2007 december coffee drawing. That kona ruined me for normal coffee. But I do head in to starbucks daily - because a girl needs her fix. The other day I wrote on my blog about a confrontation I had with someone at starbucks who was treating a barista rudely. I am not sure if you allow links to be posted here, but I would love it if I could share my coffee blurb with your readers.

http://theaveragegirlnextdoor.wordpress.com/2009/02/20/starbucksadditude/

Love your books as always. I am in your debt for taking my coffee habit from mediocure to a serious problem....And for introducing me to kona and the french press.

 

Cleo's reply: Hi Davida! I'm so happy hear from you! For sure, I'll link to your blog. You always have something interesting to say - and the way you say it usually makes me laugh outloud (something we can all use, these days). Java joy to you always - and don't be a stranger!

Your fellow bean juice addict,
—Cleo

topless coffee house ???? revisited.

I want an all male service for the topless coffee house and I want it in my city! I still could picture it as a mystery novel somewhere.{hint,hint.} ~Laundrygoddess

Topless Coffee House

Topless Coffee House in small town Maine "In a town with fewer than 4,500 residents, the topless coffee shop is booming with business. Paul Crabtree, the owner's brother, describes business so far as 'fantastic.'" There's got to be a joke in here somewhere about scalding hot coffee, but I haven't come up with one. Maybe, "It sounds like a spill could be grounds for a birthday suit lawsuit?"

—geekette

 

Cleo's reply: THANKS GEEKETTE! You're a geekgoddess! I posted about this on the Home Page! My guess is, given the economy, this topless coffee experiment will be the first of many more in the country. And I suppose there are some who will object, but having spent time in Europe—where young and old women regularly go topless on beaches and the beauty of the God-given naked form is celebrated in masterful works of art, I see this as completely innocent stuff. (I especially liked the comment from the 80-year-old female customer who asked one of the topless barista dudes to consider wearing Spandex! Now that's my kind of octogenarian!)

Trouble for Reading

I would get in trouble for reading in class, any class. I always completed the reading assignments before everyone else and boy was I bored. While everyone else in high school couldn't be bothered or was reading romances, I was reading The Russia House, Machiavelli, Sci-Fi, Lord of the Rings, mysteries, and the full version of stories they edited in English class. I enjoy movies and series based on books when they are done right and is respectful to the author's original vision. I remember the Bobbysey Twins, Nancy Drew, and the Hardy Boys. Christie Florida

Hello from High Falls

Dear Cleo, Thanks for the slice of Junior's also my favorite cheeser. David Lynch could be awesome on the project. I was so excited to read your response since my excitement is still on an all time high from your books. It truly is fun to fantasy cast and the possibilities for the series and combinations are fun. I keep on trying to put myself in places where I can chat up this series. Let's keep our fingers crossed that a return to fun, campy- intelligently written mysteries can be enjoyed not only on the page but on the screen. Have a wonderful day! And thank you!

Sheena

I noticed your "In Memoriam" to Sheena on the right-side column and I had to express my sympathy. Last spring I had to put my kitty, Scully, to sleep. It was the most heart breaking decision I've ever had to make. You have my condolences. Nicole (in Michigan) PS--I love the picture of your rescue kittens below. I hope you give us occasional updates on their cutenes.

I have really enjoyed reading both the Haunted Bookshop and Coffeehouse Mysteries, and was just wondering when the next Coffeehouse book will come out. Your website says 2009, but can you hint at a season at least? I can't wait! -Kristin
