non drinker hooked on coffeehouse mysteries

I have to say I am not a coffee drinker at all. However I love your books and learning about the coffee bean and the wonderful different types of mochas and espressos. Your writing keeps me enthralled on what will happen next. Love the characters and I know I gain weight just reading your luscious recipes. Enjoying Murder by Mocha. thanks PEG from MN.

Reading Roast Mortem

I'm on the 9th book and waiting for Murder by Mocha to come in the mail. I also picked up your other series, can't wait to start those books too. My choice of character is Mike Quinn. My husband started to read these books too, he told me he wanted to know why I was so addicted. Now he is reading them :), amazing books.
September 30, 2011

said it for years while self-medicating:

it looks like coffee is good for your attention span. In fact, they think caffeine is responsible for the decrease in ADHD symptoms as people get older, since most of us develop a substantial coffee addiction in our adult lives or, at the very least, an aggressive soda habit. We're accidentally treating our hyperactivity. [cracked.com] and http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3870823

To K9 Kindness

You can read the series all over again and again and again.....until the next book comes. You can also read her other series, Haunted Bookshop, if you haven't read that series yet-6th book comes out in January (hopefully). -Rosa

K9 Kindness loves the Coffee House Mysteries Series

There is only one thing that concerns me: I will finish "Murder By Mocha" before the next book comes out. What ever will I do in the meanwhile???

Read All About It Part 2!!

I was looking up something (I can't remember what it was now) on my library's online catalog. As I was scrolling down the search page, I came across a book written by none other: Jack Shepherd (different spelling on the last name, but still!!). I sat there on a moment's shock and then I started to laugh and said, "No way!" I just couldn't believe that I found something like that!! LOL!!!! :)

Shopping with Bree...

I would like to go shopping for a make-over with Bree...she is an interesting "blend" of gutsy career woman who against all odds is a major success..yet inside of all that toughness and ambition there is a loving and kind heart..I think that I would love meeting her and spending time to learn some of her "secrets" about living life fully.

Read All About It!!!!

There's news going around that the Post Office might shutdown this winter. I was wondering (and worrying) if Seymour Tarnish will be losing his job. :( Rosa

The entire series

I just purchased the entire series and now reading On What Grounds. Very good story so far; love Clare. Not sure about Matteo; love his mom. I am enjoying reading it and will probably continue right away with the rest of the series. Keep up the good work! I am Italian so I can relate.
September 9, 2011

Coffee House Series

Thank you for providing me with a wonderful new series of books, characters and genre! What a summer getting to know everyone at the Blend! Hope the writing is going well!

I love espresso.

Just discovered your mystery series. I work in a Library, so many books come across the desk, and I am always look for a good mystery. Mysteries are my favorite genre. Love Clare, Mike Quinn,actually I love them all. My Italian grandmother gave me my first espresso when I was six. Have been drinking coffee ever since. I even have her stove top pot. But, I do have a small counter top unit too. Even made it for my adult sons, who also love it.

Murder By Mocha

It was soooo good, and so sexy, that when I finally finished it, I felt like I should have a cigarette, and I don't even smoke!!
September 1, 2011

Murder by Mocha

I just got a copy from the library and can't wait to read it. I love that your last few books come out in August. That gives me something to look forward to as I start a new school year. I am going to look at the recipe section first! BTW, this teacher uses her "book money" on classroom titles and supports the library for her own reading. Pattie in Florida

Murder by Mocha

It was super!. I also was stuck in because of Irene here in VA so I read your book. It was so good. Have read all the books in this series and 3 of the Ghost books. Enjoy them all. Thanks for giving us such good books to enjoy!
August 27, 2011

Murder by Mocha

Stuck in the house because of Irene, but thankfully, the first day passed smoothly. A good cup of coffee and a great book and before I knew it, it was time for dinner. Thank you for Murder by Mocha. I loved it!

Be Safe

Cleo and Marc, Here in Iowa we are watching closely Irene's move toward you. Please know that we are praying for you and your safety. Let us know when you can that you are safe and back home. Sue in Iowa

Note to Cleo: First Time Reader

Hi Cleo,

I just finished reading my first Cleo Coyle book "Holiday Grind" and I loved it.

I took up the challenge to see if I could figure out who did it (before the end of the book) but alas, I was stumped until the end.

My husband and I love our coffee as well but can't seem to get the perfect espresso out of my espresso machine. We keep using the manual stove top one. Any tips would be appreciated.

 

Cleo's reply:

Thank you for the kind words on Holiday Grind. It's a very cozy book to read in the fall with the weather cooling off and the anticipation of the holidays nearing.

     The "Holidays in New York" theme made it a particularly enjoyable entry to write. Even though my husband (Marc) and I have lived in NYC for over two decades, we always find ourselves enchanted by some aspect of the city at that time of year. As for your excellent coffee question...

     The truth is... most home espresso machines will not be able to produce the kind of pressure that a professional machine can. (You would have to invest $1000 or more in a machine that could even come close.) That's why I make home "espresso-style" drinks in my stovetop pot (no crema but delicious!) and leave the pulled espressos to the baristas at my local coffeehouse.   

       Still...I want to help out you and your husband, and I do recall that same question being posed to a US Barista champion a few years ago. If you watch this short YouTube film below, you should get some good pointers. In the first few minutes, Kyle introduces himself  and talks about the national barista competition. Then he'll get on with showing you how to make a better espresso in your home machine. I hope this will prove helpful to you...

Warmest java wishes
and keep in touch,

~ Cleo

So I can only have dinner with one person??

It would have to be Madame. I would love to share a meal with Madame in some out of the way, tucked into a dark spot, hideaway that she knows about along with other prominent New Yorkers that merely nod their heads to each other when they see one another.

We would discuss how she got into the coffee business, her love life, who & what she thinks is important in today's society and why we both agree that the world would stop spinning if coffee were not around.

I think she has a wealth of knowledge to share with the world and she only wishes to dole it out a little at a time so we might have to meet more than once! Matt may think he knows everything about coffee but I think Madame has him beat! After all, who trained him?!

 

Cleo's reply:

Lovely! Thank you so much for sharing. You are now entered in my contest. Good luck and stay tuned!

Dinner with a Character

Email sent with the elaboration on why I would like dinner with a character...

 

Cleo's reply:

Thank you for entering, can't wait to read it, and good luck!


August 18, 2011

HI CLEO

I WOULD CHOOSE THE AUTHOR AND HER PARTNER..!!!!!!!!

TAKE CARE A2

 

Cleo's reply: Aw, thanks A2. That is incredibly sweet. Much appreciated...


August 17, 2011

Madame of course!

I would love to spend an afternoon with Madame. She is so intriguing! She's such a character and fiesty too.

I'm just afraid that the time would fly by much too quickly for me. I would be on the edge of my seat trying to keep up with her and her wit. ;o)

Tonya from Louisiana

 

Cleo's reply:

If Madame were here, she would probably say...

 

"Brevity is the soul of wit, my dear, so I shall simply say, 'Merci beaucoup, Tonya, for your very good taste!'"
