Great find!

I found a few of your books at the library and discovered a whole new take on mysteries. I love the fact that I can read a great book and have some recipes to try out at the end. Thanks so much! I can't wait until your next book is out.

 

Cleo's reply: Thank you so much! Like you, many readers have told me that they first discovered my books at the library; and, as we all know, librarians are the hippest people on the planet (keepers of that literary flame). :)

No kidding: I owe a big thank you to those librarians who have stocked my titles in their stacks.

I'm so glad you stopped by my *virtual* coffeehouse, and I hope you'll remain a "customer" of my fictional Village Blend for years to come.

Read with joy!

New book?

love this series - are you working on a new book?

 

Cleo's reply: Thanks for asking! Great timing. I am now updating the site with info on the new release, MURDER BY MOCHA. This is the 10th book in the Coffeehouse Mystery series, and it will go on sale August 2nd. (The next book in the Coffeehouse Mystery series will be out next year, stay tuned)... 

 

 

From the "About the Books"
page of this site...

  

Cleo Coyle launched her Coffeehouse Mystery series in September 2003 with On What Grounds. It is now in its 15th printing.


There are currently 9 books in Cleo's nationally bestselling series. The NEW entry, Murder by Mocha, will go on sale August 2nd.

 

"This rich and entertaining
mystery blends atmosphere,
unforgettable characters,
and a killer plot that
will keep readers hooked until
the very end..."

4 STARS!

Blueberry Cream cake

After seeing the picture of Clare's Blueberry Cream Cake (from Roast Mortem) on this site I decided to try it for a dinner I went to on Saturday since fresh blueberries are in season and it was a big hit. Super easy to make and tasted great, people were asking me for the recipe. I used a pre-made graham cracker crust and total prep time was under 5 min. I will be making this again

 

Cleo's reply:

Oh, that's sweet news! That dessert is one of my favorites and perfect for summer when blueberries are affordable. You can also make it with frozen berries at other times of the year.

     You know, I wasn't sure what to name that dessert since it's a cross between a cake and a pie. I finally went with "cake" and "pie" in the formal name, which I hope wasn't too confusing. It's amazing how good this is *and* how quickly it is to make. I appreciate your dropping by to let me know you enjoyed it. Come on back now, y'hear? :)

      For those of you wondering what we're discussing, see below, and...eat with joy! ~ Cleo

Clare and Matt

Please bring them back together! I do not like Mike Quinn. Especially when he calls Clare sweetheart. I want Matt and Clare back together please!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Cleo's reply: 

Thank you for your comment. Well, you know...I can't tell you here and now what's going to happen between Clare and Matt (or Clare and Quinn). You'll have to find out by reading the future books. :)

Again, I thank you sincerely for your comment. I always enjoy hearing from readers. (One quick request: the next time you comment, please leave a nickname or initials, something so I and others on this board have a way of knowing who you are. Thanks again!)

 

Wishing you java joy,

Clare's Old Fashioned Donut Cupcakes/Muffins

Hi Cleo, I've written here before and it's been a while since I've been back (to leave a message) but I wanted to break the "silence" by telling you that I've made the Old Fashioned Doughnut Muffins (from Roast Mortem) about four times and they are a big hit! I add my own little tweaks but mostly stick to the recipe. They are delicious. I've eaten four in a row (I made them small for that batch for that reason!) for breakfast. Probably not the healthiest breakfast but very delicious.

 

 

Cleo's reply:


Thank you for letting me know (and dropping back, too).

 

For those of you wondering what we're talking about: Clare Cosi's Doughnut Muffins were a featured recipe in my 9th Coffeehouse Mystery, Roast Mortem, soon to be released in paperback. The book made a reviewer's Favorite Pick of the Year list at Bookreporter.com. It's also close to my heart because it's not just a murder mystery, it's a tribute to New York City's "Bravest," our firefighters. For learn more about Roast Mortem, click here. To see some of the featured recipes in Roast Mortem, click here

  

What is it? A featured recipe in Roast Mortem.
Find out what this is by clicking here.

 

Thanks again for dropping by
my virutal coffeehouse.
Cook with love, eat with joy,
~ Cleo

Audio books

Are any of your books available as audio books? My husband & I enjoy them on the road & when camping. Thanks.

 

Cleo's reply:

Audio books are being recorded as I type this! This is big news, and I haven't announced it on the site yet, but just between us...

     GoAudio (BBC Audio) bid on and won the right to record the entire Coffeehouse Mystery back list.

     On What Grounds (Book #1 of the series) will be out this month in audio, followed by Book #10, Murder by Mocha, in August, when Mocha will be released for the first time in hardcover.

     After that, the entire Coffeehouse Mystery back list of books will be released by GoAudio (BBC Audio) over the next two years. I'll have more info on the release schedule soon, and thank you for asking. :)

Note to Cleo

Hi Cleo; Love the books. Why is Murder Most Frothy not available for Kobo while the rest of the series is?

 

MURDER MOST FROTHY

Beaches, bullets, and a
rogue Navy SEAL

in the Hamptons
that she'll never forget...

Cleo's Reply - Hi back! And thank you for your question. Murder Most Frothy, along with all of the other Coffeehouse and Haunted Bookshop mysteries, are available in all standard e-book formats, including Kindle and Nook. If you don't see it in Kobo, check again in another few weeks. In my experience, new e-book publishers tend to do things in stages. If every other Coffeehouse Mysteries is available to you in Kobo, Murder Most Frothy most likely will be, too, given a little more time. 

You can always contact Kobo customer service directly with your question or request. Thanks again for your question and thanks especially for reading my books. :)

All best,
~ Cleo

Response to: Just an idea for Pen

i think that's a great idea. it would be easier to carry it around without Pen worrying about forgetting her purse somewhere (like she did at Prospero House in Dead Man's Library) or, even worse, losing Jack's nickel.-Rosa
June 5, 2011

Hard Cover or Paperback or Both?

Cleo-i was just wondering: when new books come out for either series, are they hard cover first then re-released as paperback or always paperback or are both hard cover and paperback available?-Rosa

I just pre-ordered Murder by Mocha

I just pre-ordered Murder by Mocha today on my nook while my cousin was styling my hair. I must say that this upcoming book sounds like it's going to be a great read!!!!!

Crushes

I find it funny that kids, who are fans of Mrs. Mcclure, are around Spencer's age yet have a crush on Jack. - Rosa
May 21, 2011

Clare and Matt

No way should they get back together. Matt was a pratt who deserved to lose her but he now has another chance with his 'Trend setter' and it would be cruel to ditch Mike.
May 17, 2011

To Truly

I think you will love her other series as much but in a different way. I've read all the coffeehouse mysteries and all but one of the Mrs. McClure series. Even my daughter who is now 12 likes Mrs McClure. I got her a kindle for her birthday and the first book she wanted on it was The Ghost and Mrs. McClure...she has a crush on Jack ;)
May 16, 2011

Truly a fan

I have just recently found your wonderful books and am on #4 of the Coffeehouse Mysteries. Imagine my delight when I Googled you and found that you have another series! I'm thrilled. Great books and keep 'em coming please!
May 15, 2011

Another awesome book

One of our librarians recommended your coffeehouse mysteries to me, and I am so glad she did. What a wonderful series, I just finished Roast Mortem this morning. Can't wait to read the next one. Happy Writing.

X-tea drinker dives into Coffee and comes out smiling

As a sad :) shut in found these wonderful stories that sent me away to all the beautiful places (and with an array of so real characters that one can see them in the hallway, with my cup of COFFEE.) Read all your books in two weeks and told all my family to read them. I read to fast when the story is a true page turner. go Cleo
May 14, 2011

Thanks!

I just wanted to say thanks for the entertaining books. They are fun to read, and I love your characters! I'm reading Roast Mortem now, and as usual thoroughly enjoying it. The website is great, too!! Food and mystery - how can you beat that!!

Message for Penelope and others

Happy early Mother's Day Penelope and to all the other mothers in Pen's world. Pen-Jack better be a extra charming gentleman to you on Sunday. If he isn't or wasn't (depending when you get this Pen), send him to me and in my dreams I'll kick his ass for you. LOL!!! :) -Rosa

Just for Jack

Hey Jack, how's it going? I hope you're not "sleeping" on the job. lol!!! :) -Rosa
April 28, 2011

Love you!

I'm so in love with you books! When I start to readi can't put it down. Help!!!, Can't wait to read your new one.
April 27, 2011

Just an idea for Pen

I just finished reading The Ghost and the Femme Fatale....Loved it just like the rest of the series. Only one more to go in the series then I can say I've read all of BOTH of your series. Why doesn't Pen put Jack's nickle on a necklace? Then she would never be without him with her to watch her back. Just an idea
April 20, 2011

Note to Cleo

I just finished your book with the NY firefighters (Roast Mortem). Very good book. I like Matt better than Mike. I also like Franco for Joy. Good characters.
