Pen or Clare? Too hard to chose!!!

I have read all your coffee house mystery books and couldn't get enough. I moved on to the haunted bookshop series and loved those as well. I recommend your books to everyone. I can't wait for the newest editions from both series. Elena

Thank you, Elena!

August Can't come Fast enough!

Hermi (my white cat) and I are waiting for August so we can curl up with our coffee (I say ours because her head is always in my cup and I have to unplug my pot cause she figured out how to turn it on) to read A Brew to a Kill! Having withdrawal symptoms big time. I would definitely Kill for a Brew now!

 

Thank you! 
Cleo's reply to come soon.

hi. it's been awhile since that last time that i've written anything on here. i live in Ohio and it hasn't really been spring yet...until yesterday when it was 80 degrees. FINALLY!!! the spring and warmth i've been waiting for. today, i think it was supposed to be 88, and i think it was. now, i know that you need Jack for work, but i need to borrow Jack for a little bit and then i'll return him safe and sound (and alive-so to speak) ASAP.-Rosa

 

Cleo's reply - Thank you, Rosa!

NOTE TO CLEO

Absolutely love your books! So when is the cookbook coming out with all the recipes together? :)

Glennda
in Bozeman, MT.

 

Cleo's Reply:

HELLO MONTANA!

Glennda - Lol on the cookbook, so many readers have asked that question, and I thank you for the support. Perhaps one day, I will create a little novelty cookbook. For now, however, my plate is full with writing the fiction that inspires the recipes. :)

Blessings to you, Glennda. Thank you for asking and thank you especially for reading my books. That is the best gift you can give to any author, and I appreciate it!

Love Your Books!

I absolutely love your books and have re-read them several times, enjoying them more each time! I can hardly wait for the next one!

 

Cleo's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to stop by and let me know that. It means a lot to me. Hearing that you're re-reading the books is especially interesting--and gratifying. :) I've been hearing that lately from readers, and (I think) it's an indication that the characters are like friends. They certainly are to me and my husband, Marc, who writes the books with me, which is why I thank you for sharing that, too!

 

 

Warmest java wishes
and keep in touch,

~ Cleo

Note to Cleo!

Thanks for the free coffee! I am really enjoying the "Dancing Goats" blend that I won. It's smoooooooth! :) Delicious!

 

Cleo's reply:

Wonderful to hear that, thank you for letting me know! For anyone who's wondering what we're talking about, I give away a free package of my current "coffee pick" to my readers via a weekly random drawing.

The whole thing started years ago as a way for me to share some of my ongoing coffee research (for my Coffeehouse Mysteries) via this website. "Dancing Goats" was my fall coffee pick. More info below pasted from my main page...

 

My Coffee Pick

for Fall 2011 was...

 

 

 


DANCING 
GOATS


Named as a tribute to the legend of how coffee was discovered*, this blend is a beautifully balanced, rich and bold, yet satisfyingly smooth with subtle notes of caramel and spice. To learn more about this coffee, roasted by Batdorf and Bronson coffee company, click here, and...

 

Drink with joy!

Haunted Bookshop Query

Have been trying to find "Bogus Bookseller" ...I'm going through withdrawal!!

Jill, Illinois

 

Cleo's reply:

Hi, Jill First of all, I'd like to thank you for your support as a reader. It means a lot to me (and Jack and Pen :)). 

      For anyone who is wondering what Jill is asking about, here's the skinny (as Jack would say). Since 2004, I have been writing a series of books for Penguin called The Haunted Bookshop Mysteries, and I am under contract for many more in this series, no worries. :)
 

THE 
HAUNTED BOOKSHOP 
MYSTERIES

This series of murder mysteries is set in a Rhode Island bookshop near the Atlantic Ocean (...you can smell the sea salt in the air. :)) Pen is a widow with a young boy. She moves to New England after the suicide of her husband and joins her Aunt Sadie in the running of a family bookstore.

As soon as Pen arrives, she begins working to revive the dying business and remodel the place. (Please do remember that my series began eight years ago, waaay back in 2004. :)) 

The remodeling in the bookshop rouses the spirit of a hardboiled detective who died on the premises many years ago. The ghost (Jack) and the widow (Mrs. Penelope McClure) have a rocky relationship at first, but they find common ground; and when murders begin to happen in the small town of Quindicott, RI, Pen calls on Jack the friendly ghost PI to help her. After all, murder was Jack's business in life.  Why shouldn't he take it up in his afterlife?

You can find out more about this series of books by clicking this link RIGHT HERE and jumping to the Haunted Bookshop page of this website.

Spirited good wishes,

~ Cleo

 

P.S.  Jill - My March Newsletter will have an answer to your specific question. For anyone who would like to sign up for my periodic newsletters, simply send an e-mail that says "sign me up" to this address -

CoffeehouseMystery@gmail.com

 

Thanks again to Jill and to everyone who has been purchasing and reading
this series.

Whether you started
Haunted Bookshop Book #1
The Ghost and Mrs. McClure

last week or 8 years ago, I send
my good karma and best wishes
to you for your very kind support .


It truly does mean a lot to me. :)

Note to Cleo

Hello, I can't seem to bring up your recipe for Chocolate-Chip Cobbler. Could you please help me?

Tilda Heidfwelberg 

 

 
 
 
 
Cleo's reply:
 
Hi Tilda, the link to the free PDF document of my recipe is below, and it does work. I tested it a number of times. 
 
 
 
Hit the link above and wait for the PDF document to load. If it does not load for you, then I am sorry to say that the problem is on your end. The problem could be your firewall preventing a download, or your computer might not have enough memory, or there could be issues with the speed of your Internet connection. Whatever the case, I do hope you can resolve it or find a friend with a computer who can help you. Thanks for dropping by my board and thanks especially for reading my books.

Love it! Love it! Love it!

I absolutely love your coffehouse series and have been hooked since the first book...so excited to see another book! Keep up the amazing job and I'll continue to follow the Coffeehouse Crew!

Cleo's reply: Thank you! (Apologies for the short reply, but I'm under deadline. Just wanted you to know I saw your note and appreciate it!)

 


February 22, 2012

I am hooked.....

I truly hope you keep writing the Coffeehouse Mysteries. I just finished French Pressed, and absolutely loved it as well as ALL of the others before it. The coffee tips you include prompted me to get my own espresso machine for the house. (lol) You are a very talented writer who keeps me guessing and I love it! I could very easily re-read every one of your books. Keep up the great work; I'm thoroughly enjoying it. :)

Cleo's reply: Thank you! French Pressed is a wonderful title, and one of my favorites in the series -- primarily because of Clare's very important decision (that it took her 5 books to make). I'm very happy to know that you enjoyed it. Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to drop by my board to let me know. 

Warmest java wishes,

~ Cleo

Java's Avatar

How come Java the cat doesn't have her own avatar on this website? After all, she is part of the story even though she is not all of the novels.

Cleo's reply:

LOL! Well, I'm still working on Esther, Tucker, and Gardner, too. Then, of couse, I'll have to do the Fish Squad...and Franco. But you have a good point. So I'lll be adding Java (and Frothy) to the list. Thanks for the cat-lover note! You know I'm one, too. XXOXOX :)
