Audio BooksWill you be putting the coffee house mysteries on Audio anytime soon? I absolutely love them and it's easier for me to listen to them while I work than to try to sneak read. *L* I never get anything done when I do that! :-)
I pre-ordered Roast Mortem on my nookCleo, I just pre-ordered Roast Mortem on my nook a few hours ago. I have other books to read until then, but I am looking forward to reading it when it comes out in August!! Stefanie
Will you be having a book signing for Roast Mortem in NYCCleo, I am reading all your books, I love them all, will you be having a book signing or personal appearance in the New York area. I would love to meet you! Lydia NYC
Thanks for writing such great books!I have several of your books in my stack of rereadible books. Now that I am able to be truly active again I can continue my hunt for great coffeehouses. So far, Java Madness in Wakefield, RI is numero Uno on my list. They serve excellent coffee and you can sit out on their deck overlooking a marina. Great coffee, great food, great people behind the bar and a great view to boot; what more can you ask for. Thanks for writing such great books! Jennie
Love the books!!!I started reading the Coffehouse Mysteries 3 weeks ago...have read them all and now starting on the Bookshop Mysteries!! Can't wait!!! After long days at work, I look forward to curling up with your books and losing myself in them! Can't wait till August for "Roast Mortem".
New CoffeeHouse Mystery QuestionHi Cleo/Alice: I recently got a nook and buy mysteries and books through the shop on it. When your new coffeehouse mystery comes out, will I be able to buy it as an ebook on my nook?
Help Save a Great Coffee HouseGeneva NY is losing it's one and only coffee shop - which has had a really important impact on our community -- there is an effort to try to make it a more communtiy owned business and to otherwise save it. Please spread the word -- and do what you can? Check out this website: http://savegenevacoffee.wordpress.com. (I reviewed the coffee house on my site, Cooking with Ideas -- and hope there is something people can do to help!
Coffee Drawing Winner Says Thank You!I received the coffee and couldn't wait to open it when I got home. BTW, I read somewhere you are from the Pittsburgh area originally. I grew up in Glassport and Liberty Boro, and attended South Allegheny High School. Thanks again, Pattie
Mother/Daughter Book Sharing....only goes so far. I allowed my daughter to read my Coffeehouse Mysteries--she was in need of distration, and she finished them all in mere days--but starting now, I'm just going to have to buy TWO copies of each book. I'm not about to fight with her over every new Cleo-release! We've also shared a lot of great Cleo-recommended coffee. Thank you, from both of us! Laine
whats up with Mike?! lolhonestly, these books have kept me saine! i have had a stressful past year and reading these charming creations have let me escape from the madness!my dad was very ill so i spent a lot of time in the hospital with him. he would always ask for an "update" :-) i wisk away to a perfect place(minus all the blood shed!)where the caffiene is ever flowing...oohhmmm another thing...the romance! you put the ahh in laaatteee. i picture you and Mike snuggled up reading the sunday paper eating a danish and drinking your third round of expressos. thank you for giving me something to look foward to reading,to enjoying that first sip, watching out for the crazys around each bend, and knowing that with a little extra sugar..even biatches like Bree can be swallowed! hahaha keep up the good work. already have the next on order! one more thing, on my "bucket list" is to get your autograph....do you ever do that? sincerely, Dina D.

SISTER NOW READING BOTH BOOKS!
Just started reading the coffeehouse mysteries
And I have to say, Oh my goodness. Phew. I love caffeine, but to be honest I don't drink much coffee. But you have honestly made me wonder what I have been missing. I was in the library looking for a new series since I've finished all my others, I saw this one and since the first 6 books were there, decided to sit down and read them. Wow, you have done a most wonderful job and I want to say thanks. I will look for you other series and hopefully will find the other two books that I have yet to read. Thanks for giving me another good reason to not do my housework and to hide from the kids. LOL
really hope that there will be audio books. when i am iraq working (army) i really cant set down and read a book. so i will listen to them. i just got thru esprsso shot and hope i can get to another book asap. thanks
SPC Graham US Army
Love at First Read!
I just signed my daughter and I up at our local library, and my first book I checked out happened to be Holiday Grind! I read it in only 2 days because I couldn't put it down, and I am now half-way through Espresso Shot. I have an extreme love for coffee/coffee houses (which I can thank my parents for!) and your books are an amazing blend of wonderful stories and delightful recipes! I can almost "smell" the coffee being made in your descriptions in the books...
I can't wait to experience the whole Coffee House Mystery collection, and I truly look forward to the release of Roast Mortem!!!
Avid Readers are saying Yippee!!!!!
Dear Miss Cleo:
Ma'am, it is a pleasure to write a few words to you. I am an avid reader, developed early in life through my mothers' dedication for her daughter to become a learned and intelligent woman. I must confess my love for the Haunted Bookshop series, but not just because I enjoy the characters and the plots, but mostly because my mother loves it too and we delight in conversation about it.
Miss Cleo, have inadvertently given me a gift. By writing something both my mom and I enjoy reading, we were able to finally "break the ice" (so to speak) that formed so long ago, and really see each other as women, not just mother and daughter. This was a long time coming and I wish to thank you for it. Why it took this series and why it took so long, I have no earthly idea. So, thank you for your past Haunted books, your Coffee Shop books and for your newest endeavors. They shall be purchased and consumed immediately!
I have received my coffee and tried it as well. It is very good and I will enjoy the remainder. May God bless you as you continue writing and sharing words of wisdom with all who write you. I am happy to see that there is a writer that will take the time to do so, because I know it takes a lot of time to read and reply to these messages when you are trying to keep us stocked with new books and giving us free coffee.
YOUR ITALIAN FRIED SHRIMP RECIPE
IN HOLIDAY BLEND YOU MENTIONED ITALIAN FRIED SHRIMP COULD YOU PLEASE POSE IT THANK YOU
Love your books
The Haunted Bookshop series are my favorite, it blends the mystery of after life with a good detective story. Two worlds I enjoy, thank you for giving me a great reading time.
Cuppa Joe Cookies
Made these cookies. They are delicious. Interestingly, the batter is even more delicious than the baked cookie. In addition to making the drop cookies, I poured some of the batter into a cake pan and made a 1/2" cookie. Wonderful!
NOTE TO CLEOVERY MANY THANKS,VERY GRATEFUL ANONYMOUS
I absolutely love your Haunted Bookshop Series and turned my mom on to them recently as well. I am an avid reader of cozy mysteries and I recently began collecting the cover art to some of my favorite books but have a difficult time finding who the artists are most of the time.
Can you tell me who did the artwork for your covers and if they are able to be purchased in prints?
I am delighted to share the cover artist's name! Catherine Deeter has created the cover art for all of my Haunted Bookshop mysteries. She even has a website. To visit her and see more of her charming art, click here. She has contact information at her site, so you can ask her directly about prints. Collecting favorite covers via art prints is a wonderful idea, and I hope she does make them available to you.
Thank you for asking, and I especially thank you (and your mom) for reading my books.
"Spirited" good wishes to you
from me, Jack, and Pen...
Uh-oh, I hear Jack in the background. What's that? He wants me to say...
Ask that Deeter broad a question while you're at it. What's her beef with me? How come I never appear on those pretty little covers? All the public ever sees is my hat!
Jack, for a dead PI, you're being kind of clueless. Catherine doesn't paint you because you no longer have a mortal form. You're a ghost, you big lug!
NOTE TO CLEO
CLEO. I have read...read and reread your letter to OLIVIA. I have a granddaughter about the same age coming up for a birhtday...may I please change the name and use it to give to her with her present? Please.
You not only have my permission, you have my BLESSING to replace Olivia's name with your granddaughter's and give it to her. If you e-mail me at VillageBlend@aol.com (with NOTE TO CLEO) in the heading, I will be happy to re-create the note for you and put your granddaughter's name in there and send it to you with my compliments. Then you can cut and paste the note easily into a document and format it to look pretty for her. But if you'd rather not do it that way, no worries. Go ahead and copy the letter (below this message) and do what you need to for it to be a gift for her.
Sending my warmest wishes to you
and Happy Birthday wishes
to your granddaughter!
P.S. For anyone who is wondering what we're discussing just SCROLL DOWN and you'll see my letter to Olivia, a young woman who is turning 16 in October. Her mom asked me to post a quote or word of wisdom as a gift for her daughter, and I posted a quote with a letter attached, written from the heart.
I am an avid fan of both series
I am an avid fan of both series. And coffee / books are my main pleasures in life!
I am a lady who doesn't get out much due to medical problems and your books have taken me to Rhode Island and New York. Sometimes I feel I can feel the weather in your book or even smell the coffee! Thank you so much!
from Georgetown, Tn
Roxann, that is one of the nicest compliments a reader has ever shared. Thank you! I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers for your medical problems (and I'll do my best to keep writing the kind of books that keep your spirits up and your armchair traveling)!
Warmest java wishes,
Message to Olivia
That is a wonderful message [to Olivia for her 16th birthday] and I hope she truly reads it and takes to heart what you've said. Truer words could not be spoken. There are many people in this world who will try to tear you down, whether from jealousy, revenge or just a mean spirit and it seems that a lot of those people call themselves "friends".
I am awaiting my coffee and will let you know what I think of it as soon as I have my first cup. Waiting for Roast Mortem for more mystery and mayhem and more recipes. Keep up the great writing.
Veronica - Thank you so much for that kind note about Olivia's letter. I was a little nervous about the frankness of my message; then again, life and its contradicitons create one difficult maze for us poor souls to navigate. Young people almost always appreciate honesty about that fact. I think readers appreciate it, as well. :)
Thanks also for your nice words about my books. Love that you're looking forward to more "mystery and mayhem," and I hope Roast Mortem delivers a good escape for you. By now, you should have recieved the Kafe Lespwa. I hope you like it and will...
Drink with joy!
