Pen and Jack!

Please come back.

It has been so long.

 

Cleo's reply:

Need More Books...PLEASE!!!

Okay, I've read all the Coffee House Mysteries and Haunted Bookshop, I had surgery today and I am desperate for a good read.....Help!!! Can either Penelope or Clare come over for coffee and keep me company (Ha Ha). Laid up for a while,

Rebekah
Terre Haute, IN

 

Cleo's reply: Rebekah! I am so sorry to hear that you are on the post-surgical mend (ouch!). I am sending good thoughts, prayers, and karma your way. I hope you feel better soon. Thank you so much for stopping by. Please read my reply (in the message above this one) to find out more about the next Jack and Pen adventure :-)

I baked you a big, warm plate of *virtual* chocolate brownies to enjoy with your next pot o' joe. (Because, well, chocolate makes all medicine go down easier.)

Feel better soon!


April 25, 2010

Great series!!

Really enjoying your books!! I, like several of your fans, found Holiday Grind first and am now making my way through your other books...wonderful way to wind down after a busy day. Keep them coming!!!

My New Coffeemaker!

Cleo,

I had to write with my thanks for your advice a few months ago on drip coffeemakers. I purchased one of the Cuisinarts, complete with a gold grounds basket and water filter. It makes great cup of coffee. It is always nice and hot and never gets that bitter, burned taste.

Our book club, "Thrills and Chills Mystery Readers" met this past Monday and we are anxious for the next books in both of your series!

Pam
in Nebraska

 

Cleo's reply:

HELLOOOOO,
NEBRASKA!

Dear Pam: I am so happy that you stopped by again. And I'm very pleased to hear that my advice worked out for you. Also grinning over the name of your book club -- "Thrills and Chills" is perfect. :)

Please send my very best java wishes to eveyrone in your club!

Drink with joy,
~Cleo

Can't read them fast enough!!

I have just finished my second Coffeehouse Mystery and I have to say, I love them almost as much as I love coffee!! :)

Thanks Cleo for writing about what so many of us love . . . Coffee! :)

I am hooked

I read Holiday Grind first, but then went to the first book and started. I really love your mystery series. I have a hard time putting them down.

I work for an assited living home and after I finish reading one of your books, I pass them along to the residents at the home who are interested in reading them too.

Needless to say, we have formed a Coffe House Mystery's fan club. Keep up the great work!!!!

Hugs from Minnesota

Can hardly wait!

I have just reread the haunted bookstore series and I am on tenterhooks for the next book! I really love all of her books, but Jack and Pens stories are definitely my favorite! They make the year teaching in China pass my quickly...although the waiting makes it seem to go more slowly...LOVE THE BOOKS!

Regards,
Court. B.


April 9, 2010

Incredibly excited!

Dear Cleo,

Just recently I got hold of a copy of your latest book, Holiday Grind. And let me just express how incredibly wonderful it was. I've read every single one of your books, each one being infused with surpassing skill, and I must say this one was my favorite. I am so grateful that you continue to write these books for your readers; I send you a warm thank you and a delicious cup of coffee :) I can't wait until Roast Mortem comes out!

Best Regards,
~Kiri

Inspiration from Pen and Jack

Hello-

I just wanted to let you know that because of the Haunted Bookshop mysteries I've taken up writing again. Maybe this will come to something, maybe not, but your stories are so rich in character that I couldn't help but be inspired.

Thank you!

 

 

 


March 21, 2010

Have em all!

Ok it's official, I now own all the cleo and Alice books that are out in paperback so far, soooo what's next? Haven't had much time for reading lately as the Olympics and Paralympics were in town and my bf and I were checking everything out, (there was a 5 hour line at the mint pavilion the other day) Can't wait to visit with Jack, Pen, Mike and Clare again, I've missed them all though I think Jack still sneaks a peak in my dreams the odd time lol

~Chelle


March 9, 2010

Fantastic!!!

I just read your books in a matter of a week!!! From the time I picked up the first book, I could not put them down!!!

I have been recommending them to everybody that I talk to! I even ordered Holiday Grind from the internet hoping it would be here by the time I finished Espresso Shot! Unfortunately, it didn't, so I went to the bookstore and they were all sold out! I have even pre-ordered Roast Mortem! Thank you for these wonderful books!!!


March 6, 2010

August?

That's a long countdown; I'm gonna wear out my pencil making those X-marks on the calendar. *Sigh* Still no Jack? His visit to Orlando was so brief. . . . You keep writing: I keep reading.

Thanks

Loved, loved, loIved Holiday Grind

Dear Cleo,

I've read a couple of your books and just finished Holiday Grind. I love the ones I read so far. Holiday Grind left me guessing right up until the ending. I thought I knew the killer and you suprised me. What a great story, you are a great author. I can't wait to read the rest of your Coffeehouse mystery collection because I can't get enough of Clare, Mike Quinn, and of course Matteo.

 

Sincerely,
Tracy Losey


March 1, 2010

I just discovered your books!

Dear Cleo,

I just recently found your books at my local Library and I am hooked!! So far I have only read Espresso Shot and On What Grounds.

I love the coffee tips in the book and the recipes--Oh they bring me back to my Italian Childhood, I copied your cheesecake recipe and plan on making it. Thank You for such wonderful books...

Keep the mysteries coming!! :)

I love your coffee books!

DEAR CLEO,

I love your coffee house books, I personally don't care for really strong coffee because when I make it, I use half as much coffee as I do water because otherwise, I think it taste to strong. However, I do like frappuccino's (iced coffee made with coffee flavoring, milk, vanilla ice cream and whatever else you want in it) and coffee flavored stuff, I deffinitely plan on trying to make your cappuccino muffins, I'll let you know how they turn out. However, I was just wondering how many calories they are per muffin because I'm trying to watch my weight.

Anyway, love your books.
Keep on writting.

Sincerly,
Mary Manaugh

Finally Got to Read Holiday Grind

 

The best thing about a horrific snow storm is being able to stay home with a good cup of coffee, my little white cat snuggled in the comforter and a great read!
    
I had purchased Holiday Grind when it first came out but was then diagnosed with breast cancer and, well, never got around to reading. However, I promised myself when I "graduated" from treatment, I would settle down with my favorite read. 
    
So double treat snowday and Holiday Grind. Love little Frothy! too cute! Cannot wait for your next therapeutic coffee break!
     Appreciate your great writing. Your Nonna's clam sauce is just like my Nonno's. Think I will make it tonight followed by espresso and grappa.
Yum Yum.

Thanks Cleo. Keep up the great world of the Village Blend.

Cleo's reply:

First of all, I am distressed to hear that you have been fighting cancer. Please know that you are in my good thoughts and prayers, and I hope everyone who reads this will send good karma your way, too. 
     
Creating a world where a reader can "live" (and escape) for a little while is a challenge I take very seriously, and I am so happy to hear that Holiday Grind did that for you.
     I know how important (and therapeutic) a story can be. Sometimes I think I could not have survived some of the terrible setbacks that I've gone through (personally and professionally) were it not for my favorite storytellers -- the ones I've turned to for strength, inspiration, laughter, and insight...
     So thank you sincerely for letting me know that my work has served to lift you up, even a little bit. It means more than words can say.


My very best thoughts and wishes are heading your way. (So happy to hear you enjoyed Nonna's Clam Sauce recipe--yes, that dish is off the hook! Yum, indeed!)

Please keep in touch!
~Cleo

thanks

i am a thirteen year old girl from oregon and i was about to give up on mysteries until my aunt gave me latte trouble and i just couldn't put it down. thank you for writing, writers like you are what makes youth want to read.

Cleo's repy: Because I'm under a tight deadline for my next book, I have had to delay replying to many of the wonderful comments on my message board. But I had to stop writing to reply to you. 
     
When I was your age, I began reading adult books, some of which greatly influenced me as a person and as a writer. The ones I loved the most were the ones that helped me enjoy reading.
     To hear you say that I've done this for you is an amazingly generous and moving compliment. A
ll I can say is thank you from the depths of my heart. Your post made my week, and...I hope this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship between us. :-)

Java joy to you (and to your aunt)!
I hope you'll keep in touch...
~Cleo


February 24, 2010

Note to Cleo

Just love your books. Can't get enough of them. They are as addicting as a good latte.

Kopi Luwak marketing as product development example

Hi Cleo,

I am a great fan of both your coffeehouse mysteries & the haunted bookshop mysteries (being a chronically undercaffienated librarian). I came across this post in a career coaching blog, and was reminded of the 'cat poop coffee' sidebar that I had seen here last January. The relevant entry is Aug 31 and is titled "The Most Expensive Coffee and Product Development". I hope you and the other posters enjoy it.

The nurse didn't see her shadow but it's still winter.

Out in the lonely countryside, the deep layer of white paperwork and medical articles quivers. A hand breaks through the top of the layer and waves frantically, but no one is there to see the frantic cry for help.

With a deep, pathetic sigh, the poor nurse's hand begins to disappear back under the paperwork, pausing only to snag another cup of El Salvadoran Orange Bourbon coffee...and a chocolate biscotti. No shadow was seen and this, according to legend, means there is another 10 weeks of school before relief will come, the sun will shine, and life will resume. SIGH...

Watching Olympics

Hi Cleo,

We were watching the Olympics and a commercial came on comparing buying a Jeep to a latte. I didn't get the comparison myself. OF COURSE I'd choose the LATTE. Well, if they were giving it away to me, I'd choose the Jeep. You can always sell that and buy A LOT of Lattes!

I LOVE YOUR SERIES

I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR NEXT BOOK, ROAST MORTEM.

I AM A FAN. I USE YOUR RECIPES AND I DRINK A LOT OF COFFEE. I HAVE COME TO APPRECIATE IT MORE. THANKS, CLEO COYLE.

I LOVE YOUR SERIES CLEO. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. I AM NOW GOING TO START READING HOLIDAY GRIND. SORRY I DID NOT READ IT SOONER, BUT I AM A FAN.

Charleston!!! I have left the planet again and again!! Coffee & Books

Ms. Cleo: I know you are a very busy lady. So, please do not rush to respond to me. I can read others comments and see how much you are loved and a great writer. I'm still waiting for my next "Jack" rush and hope it's soon. I don't know how long I can stand it, but will continue to hang in there. Still at the library and still looking for your books, even at the book stores. Thank you for being the "best." When is Jack coming back?? I need him!! Coffee and Books oh! my! God! I'm loving it!

COFFEE COZY CLUB

CLEO, I AM TRY TO START A ONCE A MONTH COFFEE COZY CLUB, WHERE WE MEET AT MY HOUSE AND HAVE COFFEES AND DESSERTS AND TALK ABOUT MYSTERY BOOKS. ANY IDEAS WOULD REALLY HELP!

THANKS,
JAMIE FROM CONNECTICUT

 

Cleo's reply:

Hi, Jamie. Generally speaking, the people who start reading clubs begin looking for participants withing their own groups of friends, co-workers, and club or organizational memberships. That's what I'd advise you to do.
     
A local bookseller or library may help you with this by posting public notices of meeting days, times, places, with an e-mail address or phone number for questions, etc. BUT if you decide to make this a public club, I would strongly suggest that you not have complete strangers come to your house. Try to arrange meetings at a local coffeehouse, library, or another public place for everyone's safety and comfort level (at least until you get to know the people and they get to know you).
     You might also try to contact a club that's up and running for advice. They may have good suggestions for you. (See below...and good luck!)

The Killer Coffee Club holds its meetings,
at the Ithaca Barnes & Noble:

Tops Plaza, 614 South Meadow,
Ithaca, NY 14850
