recipe book

I am having trouble locating some of my favorite recipes from your book. It would be great if you published a cook book of your terrific recipes all in one place!!

Cleo's reply - 

Easy answer on this one. BUY OUR BOOKS, put them on a shelf, and you'll have all of our published recipes in one place! No kidding...

Each of our culinary mysteries includes unique and delicious recipes, and we hope you'll collect them all and make them keepers.

CLICK HERE and scroll down to see the FREE RECIPE GUIDES for many of the books we've published. Print them out and keep them with the books, and you've got an instant illustrated recipe section.

Finally, thank you so much for your question and most of all for your kind support of our work. We sincerely hope you'll continue to enjoy our books. Or as we often say...

Coffee infused beef stew!?

I just listened to the audiobook for Matt's coffee stew but have no way of finding the recipe! Is it posted on this site? Also. I'm loving this series!!

 

Decaffeinated Corpse
A Coffeehouse Mystery

To learn more
or buy, 
click here.

 

Cleo's reply - 

Matt's special stew is indeed wonderful, and you can find the recipe in the back of any printed version of DECAFFEINATED CORPSE. (The audiobooks are vocal performances, and they are wonderful, but they are not printed books and do not carry the bonus material--including front matter/acknowledgments and back matter/recipes.) Our book is the only place you'll find that particular recipe. It is not published online. 

Before I let you go, I want to thank you for stopping by. I am so happy to know that you are enjoying our Coffeehouse stories, and I hope you continue to enjoy our characters and plots.

Warmest wishes to you and happy eating... 

~ Cleo


 

P.S. That stew recipe truly is delcious and there are more wonderful recipes in the back of the print edition of Decaffeinated Corpse, as well, enjoy!

Your books

Please don't stop writing the Clare stories. I have really loved them. You are a very talented writer and keep a person going. I have gotten in trouble with my family because I can't put them down.

Is there a real coffee house you took this all from. Where did you get all you knowledge of coffee/beans from. I am amazed at you knowledge of this subject.

Please communicate with me at Ladyj_maccarpenter@yahoo.com

 

Cleo's reply - Thank you so much "Ladyj" for taking the time and trouble to drop by our message board and let me know how much you're enjoying the books I write in collaboration with my husband (and parnter in crime-writing). We truly appreciate it.

     The Village Blend is a fictonal coffeehouse, but Marc and I did plenty of research to create it. 
 

CLICK HERE FOR MY PINTEREST BOARD ON
CLARE COSI'S GREENWICH VILLAGE.


 

     As for our knowledge of coffee/beans, we research this information for every book using published sources as well as people who work in the coffee trade. We often thank individuals and coffee shops in the Acknowledgments at the front of our books, so take a look there for more info.

      CLICK HERE to read about a real coffee that was developed by a master roaster as a tribute to the Billionaire Blend coffee featured in our 13th Coffeehouse Mystery BILLIONAIRE BLEND.

     I recently answered a question like yours for someone on facebook. To see my replies with links to places you can visit in New York City, click here.


Thanks again and I hope you continue to enjoy our books!

Yummy recipes

LOVE your mystery series...have started from the beginning and disappointingly only have 5 more to go!  

I can't seem to figure out how to access your recipes by name, or alphabetical order. Can I do that somewhere? If you don't have them organized that way, why not have a search engine available to put in the recipe name and poof! There it will appear. :) THanks.

Tricia Kovalik

 

Cleo's reply - 

Dear Tricia: Thank you so much for supporting our work! We love writing the Coffeehouse Mysteries (and Haunted Bookshop Mysteries) and it makes our day when we hear from readers like you who let us know you enjoy reading our stories.

     As for finding our recipes. The simple reply is...buy our books, put them on a shelf, and you'll have all of our published recipes in one place! While each of our culinary mysteries includes unique and delicious recipes, most of them are not online.

     Of course, I do enjoy food blogging, and you can join me online at my recipe blog here (there is a search engine at the top of the right column). But, again, some great recipes will never be online, they will only be published in our books, and I you'll collect all of our books and make them keepers.

     CLICK HERE and scroll down to see the FREE RECIPE GUIDES for many of the books we've published. Print them out and keep them with the books, and you've got an instant illustrated recipe section.

     Finally, thank you so much for your question and most of all for your kind support of our work. We sincerely hope you'll continue to enjoy our books. Or as we often say...

 

May you always eat and read with joy!

~ Cleo

I lost my fave recipe...

I was silly enough to loan out my books, plus lost a fave recipe. Can't seem to access it from any letter or site. Help please! I'm looking for...cappuccino blondies...

Thanks,
lisa@bullock.ca

or on the cover >>>>

 

Cleo's reply -

Hi, Lisa, thanks for stopping by my message board. Those Cappuccino Blondies are indeed delicious so I can see why you want that recipe back! 

You can find it in our "wicked good" Coffeehouse Mystery ONCE UPON A GRIND. CLICK HERE for the Free Recipe Guide, which will show you what the finished swirled Cappuccino Blondies look like.

Lisa, I'm so sorry, but I never posted my Cappuccino Blondies recipe online. It is only available in the published book. I hope you can either get the book back or decide to make ONCE UPON A GRIND a keeper. It's a great story and the twists and reversals make it a fun re-read, too, because on the second read, you'll see the clues and storylines in a whole new light!

Enjoyed

 
 
I just finished your wonderful book. I feel like I have watched the movie in my mind when I read your perfectly written books! 
 
I just looked in my kitchen and I have all the ingredients for the Black Magic Cake. I will give you thanks from my husband in advance. 
 
Also, the coffee history in this book was so informative, I read it to my husband and he was amazed at all the Presidents' love of coffee. As we live in Massachusetts, we did know about the tea party connection, but not the rest...Thanks                                                                            

Cleo's reply--

What a lovely comment, thank you for taking the time and trouble to drop by and let me know how much you enjoyed Dead to the Last Drop. You made my day!

    On the Presidential coffee, I'm so glad you enjoyed learning about that fun bit of Americana, as well.

     The history of coffee in the United States is a fascinating subject. And after the tea party, it became the beverage of patriots. Given the way American workers (from cops and nurses to teachers, farmers, and city dwellers) down cups of joe to this day, I'd say it still is! 

      I also hope you (and your husband!) enjoy the Black Magic Cake. It's truly a chocolate dream, moist and delicious.

     If you haven't seen the Free Recipe Guide to Dead to the Last Drop, you're welcome to click here or on the image below to view, print, or download it to keep.

     These guides are simply my way of illustrating the recipe sections of my culinary mysteries and help readers get a sense of how the finished recipes should look.

 

 
Thanks again for your kind comment. I hope you'll keep reading...and keep in touch!

 xoxo

When is DEAD COLD BREW coming out in...

Love your Coffeehouse Mysteries. Just saw the 16th book is coming out in Dec. and wanted to know when DEAD COLD BREW is coming out on Audible?

 

Cleo's reply - The audio editions usually come out around the same time as the hardcover editions. As we move closer to December 2016, the audio pub date will be more exact.

Thanks for asking--and I hope you enjoy the new book!

Is this for adults only? - Cleo replied

Good Morning! I was so excited to see this fun mystery series in the YA book list I recently came across. I immediately ordered the first three books...I would love to hear your thoughts on what type of audience this is geared toward. Thank you!

Cleo's reply -

When our first Coffeehouse Mystery, ON WHAT GROUNDS, was published in 2003, Kliatt, a highly respected professional review publication for teen and young adult literature, recommended the book.

Our Coffeehouse Mysteries do not show graphic violence or graphic sex. They are NOT books for middle-grade readers. But for young adults and teen readers 13 to 14 years and up (in movie rating terms PG-13), yes, absolutely!

These books are good reads with plotlines that involve moral choices and main characters that are flawed but strive to do the right thing. We've heard from mothers who share the books with their daughters--because of the mother-daughter issues in these books, they make good stories for discussion and empahty.

These books are also murder mysteries, so expect life-and-death to be on the page--someone will be murdered. There are scenes between "mature adults," but they don't go beyond what young adults see on prime time television or PG-13 movies.

In our Coffeehouse Mysteries, young adults will learn about New York, about running a business, about being brave and getting involved with helping people, about getting to the truth behind acts of violence, about repairing relationships and forgiving people, about a beverage beloved the world over--coffee.

What you won't find in our books--an arena where young people are ordered to brutally murder each other. Hey, I liked The Hunger Games, just sayin'. BTW - When I was in 7th grade, I was reading Shakespeare, the Bible, and popular fiction with mature subject matter. Of course, every parent and teacher will have an opinion and is entitled to one. You asked for mine, and there it is. I hope it helps!

Sincerely,

~ Cleo Coyle

DEAD TO THE LAST DROP

Great book! Looking forward to reading your next book. Love your book.

Cleo's reply - Thank you! Our next book is now well underway and due for publication in December 2016. The title is DEAD COLD BREW, and I'll have a cover soon. Thanks again!

Dead on good!

I really enjoyed reading Dead To The Last Drop and my family got to enjoy the benefit of me trying the chicken with mustard BBQ sauce recipe. Black Magic Cake is on my list to make for sure. But where is the recipe for Luther's Bourbon Street Brownies? I haven't been able to find it by following the information in the book.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cleo's Reply...

Thank you for the nice words on Dead to the Last Drop.
I'm truly happy to know that you enjoyed the story!

I will be posting the recipe for Luther's Bourbon Street Brownies in a few weeks to coincide with the Grand Opening of our Village Blend Jazz Space online.

Love you guys, love the books. Sure have learned a lot about coffee! Haven't found the haunted bookshop yet, but still looking.

Recipes for audiobook listeners

 

Hi there, love the books!

I listen to the audiobooks and just finished Dead to the Last Drop.

Are the recipes available somewhere for audiobook listeners?

Thanks in advance!!

Can't wait for the next book!

 

 

 

 

Cleo's reply:

First of all, THANK YOU sincerely for the lovely note about our work. Marc and I truly appreciate it.

     For new readers to this message board, our Coffeehouse Mysteries are fun murder mysteries, and they are also culinary mysteries with recipes as an added bonus.

     Our hardcover and paperback editions (and ebook editions) are able to accomodate the recipes we publish.

     As you know, our audiobooks are not actually books--or at least they shouldn't be thought of that way. They are dramatic productions (like theatrical productions) with a talented actress performing the roles of the characters through voice work. 

     In reply to your question: the recipes on this website, at my recipe blog (CleoCoyleRecipes.com) and through my Coffeehouse Mystery Newsletter are there to encourage community. They also serve as "bonus" recipes for our audiobook readers. Marc and I hope you enjoy them and will subscribe to our free Newsletter so you don't miss new recipes when we publish them. Subscribe by clicking here.

    That said, as you mentioned, many of our recipes are only available through our published books (hardcover, paperback, and ebook editions). Marc and I often hear from readers who purchase our books in hardcover as collector's items and again in paperback to keep in their kitchens! Ebook readers often do the same, so they'll have a physical book to keep the recipes handy. It's an honor to hear this, and my husband and I are grateful to these incredibly supportive readers. We would encourage you to do the same.

     I'm sure you've seen the hard work we put into our Free Illustrated Recipe Guides. If not, click here to see our Free Checklist of Titles (Books in Order) that includes links to many of these free guides.

    These guides should give you a sense of what recipes you may want and you can purchase those books as Keepers. Our hope is that you will enjoy the books and the recipes for years to come.

 

Thank you sincerely for dropping by our message board, and we hope you'll keep in touch!

~ Cleo

Decaffeinated Coffee Plants - CLEO REPLIED

Dear "Cleo,"

Thinking perhaps your Decaffeinated Corpse plot was entirely fiction, I did a Google search for "coffee decaffeinated plant breeding" and struck gold. Also discovered the WCR ("World Coffee Research") site. Since plants and plant breeding are long-time interests, I've just spent an enjoyable few hours...

Thanks for opening up a side of the coffee "industry" I'd never noticed before!

...you probably don't want anonymous posts...

I'm a nun in Upstate NY;
Mother Raphaela,
Holy Myrrhbearers Monastery, Otego

 

Cleo's reply -

Dear Mother Raphaela,

Thank you so very much for taking the time and trouble to drop by my message board. I'm honored for the kind comment. (A beloved aunt of mine spent her life as a nun with the Sisters Divine Providence in Pittsburgh, PA.) So you can see why I'm especially delighted to know that you read and enjoyed my work. 

Decaffeinated Corpse was a pleasure to research. At the time, I wrote it (with my husband and partner in crime-writing), decaffeinated coffee plants were still in their experimental stages. Flash forward to today, and this piece of botanical "science fiction" is finally a reality. The research also involved a trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden for background, which was a real pleasure, and I highly recommend it!

Love and blessings to you. I hope you'll continue to read and enjoy my books, and keep in touch!

~ Cleo/Alice

Thank you! - Haunted Bookshop - CLEO REPLIED

HAUNTED BOOKSHOP MYSTERIES...

 

I finally got around to reading Haunted Bookshop Mysteries a little bit ago, and I pretty much read a book a day. Stories are some of the most reliable sources of joy in my life, and I absolutely loved HBM!

Thank you for not giving up on the series; I know it can get difficult to keep going when a lot of people start getting impatient/disappointed with the wait.

Writing is tough, though, and if you say you're working on the next book, then I'll trust that the wait is not in vain, even if it's a long one. Again, thank you for giving us such a wonderful series. We eagerly await the next book, whenever its release shall be!

-- Sincerely, an overworked student.

Cleo's reply -

Thank you, "overworked student"! Marc and I can't stop writing these books, because, frankly, Jack won't stop haunting us--and we hope he'll never stop haunting you, either. 

     Thank you so very much for stopping by to let us know how much you enjoyed our Haunted world. And thanks especially for understanding about the wait, and the fact that writers aren't robots. (Okay, granted, some writers do approach their work that way, but we don't believe it does the reader justice...or the writer, not in the end.)

      Your patience and understanding do you great credit. We appreciate it, and so do Penn and Jack.

 

Our spirited good wishes to you.
We hope you'll keep in touch!

Coffee recommendations

I realize this is about your books, but it would be awesome to have a page on your website that has coffee roasters/houses to try.

Cleo's reply -

You can see many of my past "Coffee Picks," which include roasters, by scrolling all the way down the right column of this website.

Look for the coffee beans (as pictured below) in the right column and the words "AND NOW FOR SOME OF CLEO'S PAST COFFEE PICKS" -- below that you will see some wonderful coffees. While some of these are no longer available for sale, many are. And you will get a sense of some of the roasters my husband and I have tried and enjoyed. 

 

Thanks for dropping by the message board
and may you drink with joy!

Recipe - Lemon Sugar Cookies

Could you please send me a copy of "Lemon Sugar Cookies" that appeared in you book "Holiday Buzz" ... I love anything with lemon and I am just dying to try the cookie recipe Thank you

 

Cleo's reply:

That Lemon Sugar Cookie recipe is indeed excellent!

I'm so glad you asked about it, because it gives me a chance to let everyone know that they will find that delicious cookie recipe (and many, many more wonderful recipes) in the recipe section of HOLIDAY BUZZJust turn to the back of the book.

Note that my Lemon Sugar Cookie recipe is not available online or any other way. So I do hope you will decide to purchase the book and (this time) make it a keeper!

Coffee making question

I have just read all of your coffee house books and I LOVE them.

As a relatively new coffee drinker, I have learned a tremendous amount - I am now hand grinding my beans rather than using a spice grinder! But what is the best method for making coffee for one person ( a relatively large cup)? There are so many devices out there...

 

Cleo's reply - 

First of all, thank you so much for the kind note. Marc, my husband (and partner and crime writing) are always appreciative of readers like you, who stop by our board to let us know that you are enjoying our work. It makes our day, and we hope you continue to read and enjoy the books.

As far as a device for making a single cup, that is something you will need to decide, based on what appeals to you. There are plenty of variables to weigh. By trial and error, however, you'll find a solution...

There are small stovetop espresso makers, for instance, for those who enjoy a strong espresso-style coffee. Small French presses (aka coffee presses) are available if you prefer that method (and taste). Or you might want to purchase a small drip maker or the kind of single-serving coffee maker that allows you to grind your own beans and place it in a single-serve pod. (That's really the best way to go for quality and value if you're talking single-serve convenience.) Finally, there are small pour-over filters you can place over a signle cup. So, you see, the solution is up to you. Whatever suits your taste buds and your lifestyle, whatever brings you joy...that's your best cup.

Thanks again for stopping by...

Keep reading and keep in touch!

Many of the recipes are already posted on this site or at CleoCoyleRecipes.com. So I invite you to stop by my recipe blog and search for the recipe you'd like. Or you can simply wait for my next newsletter and I'll have the direct links for you. 

Note: A few of my Dead to the Last Drop bonus recipes are also scheduled to be posted new this month, and I'll have direct links via my newsletter. Thanks for stopping by and most of all, thanks for reading!

I just finished reading On What Grounds and I have to say if the rest of the series is as good as this one, I can't wait to read the rest. I love the characters and all the talk of coffee made me want to run out and grab a cup to drink as I was reading. Keep up the great work.
