Found coffee house book 21

Hey all I found book 21 of the amazing coffeehouse! No Roast for the Weary When the Village Blend opens a Writer's Block Lounge, a cold case crime turns up the heat on Clare and her crew in this gripping new entry in the beloved Coffeehouse Mystery series from New York Times bestselling author Cleo Coyle. As much as master roaster Clare Cosi adores coffee, the landmark shop she manages won't survive if she doesn't sell enough of it. So when the Village Blend's customer traffic grinds to a halt, she turns to her staff for creative ideas, and the Writer's Block Lounge is born. Madame, the eccentric octogenarian owner of the shop, is upset by this news. Years ago, a group of accomplished writers used the shop's second-floor lounge to inspire each other, but the group disbanded when something dark occurred. Though that history is shrouded in mystery, Clare presses forward... Soon the Village Blend tables are filled with aspiring novelists, playwrights, and poets, all happy to be coaxed, cajoled, and caffeinated by her coffeehouse crew. Clare admires the stamina of these scribes, many of them toiling at night jobs—driving taxis, tending bar, ushering for Broadway—while penning projects during the day. Then one of their fictions turns fatal when a shocking secret leads to a deadly end. Unless Clare can untangle this mystery, uncover the truth, and stop a desperate killer, she fears more of these weary writers may be marked for eternal rest. I's already up for preorder too on kindle and barnes and noble Here's a link to barnes and noble. https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/no-roast-for-the-weary-cleo-coyle/1145939868?ean=9780593642283

Love Bulletproof Barista

I love your Coffeehouse Mystery Series so much! I've been a fan for years. Thank you for writing this Mystery series. Since I've retired, I have been trying to write my own cozy mystery as I am so inspired by you. Thank you! I truly appreciate and admire you!
June 16, 2024

GOING THROUGH WITHDRAWAL...

Pain is slightly easing with the news that there is a #21 in the offing at some point...I've been devouring cozy mysteries for the last year, and after several series, I finally happened on Claire, Madame, Matt and the rest. And these are the best of the entire lot. (I lived in NYC for over 20 years, and this feeds those occasional nostalgic city twinges.) Having set these in a wonderful landmark place, you have avoided the "formula" encountered in the others (where you get to a point where there's basically nobody left in town to be murdered). I love that you've done "conventional" murders, a spy thriller, and even a BEE book, for God's sake. And just when it was about to get old, you moved on from the opening stalking stranger. Tried a ghost mystery a couple of years ago and was not hooked...but as I gaze lovingly at my pristine copy of #20--trying not to open it until I just can't stand the wait so that the magic will continue--I'm beginning to think about giving your ghost a try...I'll let you know how that goes. With much admiration (and appreciation of your humor) I remain your retired teacher friend Sue.

Honey Roasted Coffee

Hi Cleo, as a huge fan of your books and Book 19, Honey Roasted being one of my very favorites I wanted to tell you about something I recently discovered. The Savannah Bee Company in Georgia with stores in Charleston etc sells a wonderful honey roasted coffee. It is roasted by a small roaster in Charleston SC. Now I not only have honey roasted coffee but Billionaire’s Blend from a shop outside Harrisburg PA. Both are superb. Great coffee is the best.

Love the books

These books are so lovely and have become part of my afternoon routine for the past 3 years. I truly thank you for these wonderful books!

terryfund.org question - Cleo Replied

 

I would like to donate

(re: the organization mentioned in your book Roast Mortem: A Coffeehouse Mystery by Cleo Coyle)

 

Cleo's reply: 

Roast Mortem is the 9th book in our Coffeehouse Mystery series. It involves the crime of arson in NYC and Clare Cosi becomes close to several New York firefighters as she attempts to solve the  murder mystery in the novel. In the book, we mentioned "The Terry Farrell Firefighter" fund, which has helped fallen firefighters/first responders and their families. It has a current web address of...

My heart just did a coffee cartwheel!!! - Cleo Replied!

I just read your April 16, 2024 reply with the news that a 21st Coffeehouse Mystery book will be coming out soon!!! I almost yelled “WOO HOO!!!!” But considering that it’s 2:45am AND considering that one of my cats is snuggled up right next to my head, I thought that a silent celebration within myself might make for a much safer outcome for my vulnerable scalp and face… especially since I do not subscribe to the cruelty that is the declawing of cats. So, I simply allowed my elated heart to do its little happy dance and compact coffee cartwheel (did ya catch it??) inside my chest. I am sincerely SO EXCITED that I have at least one more Clare Cosi story with to look forward to! I hope that there’ll be many, MANY more, but maybe that’s just me… (yeah right!) Thank you for these amazing stories!!! I am very much binging them, thank you very much! And don’t plan to stop! I’m reading an entire book a day at this point!

 

Cleo's reply - THANK YOU!

Oh, you made my day, and I hope you continue to enjoy our Coffeehouse crew for years to come. xoxo

New books coming? - Cleo Replied!

I really could use a new coffeehouse novel with Clare Cosi. I sure hope you will come out with a new one. I have them all. I love the characters and the stories make me laugh. Thanks so much for Clare Cosi and the gang!

 

Reply from Cleo:

YES! I will soon be sharing our new book announcement for our Coffeehouse Mystery series (Book #21).

Thank you so much for your love of Clare & Company. Stay tuned! More info on Coffeehouse #21, including the publication date and pre-order links, will be coming soon...

Honey Roasted recipes

The Honey Roasted recipes are delicious! I really enjoyed the mystery too and I could not guess the killer. Good job! I love that you include recipes in your books. It is so much fun. I am enjoying all the characters, the mystery stories, and the food. You also make me laugh and I appreciate that. Now I will be reading Bulletproof Barista and I am looking forward to more coffeehouse books. Thank you for the fun and the food!

Saw a clue on Jeopardy - CLEO REPLIED

I was watching Jeopardy and saw the Coffeehouse Mysteries as a clue. I stopped the tv, took a screen shot, and my family has since enjoyed all your books, including the Ghost series.

 

Cleo's reply -- Thank you! We love Jeopardy! -- and we were thrilled to see our Coffeehouse Mystery series used as a question on the show. This is the second time it has happened. The first time was when the late great Alex Trebek himself was hosting. We were honored. 

We are glad to know you're a fan of that wonderful game show and our books! Cheers!

Read All Books...

I have read all books in both series. Have a question? Where can I buy the audiobooks? I was able to listen to a couple of them and the narrator is fantastic. I would love to own them all!!

Thanks,
Kathy

Cleo's reply:

Hi, Kathy -- Thank you for the kind note and thanks especially for your support of our work. We agree our audio narrator is fantastic. She's an accomplished actor who has appeared in the Academy Award-winning film CODA and most recently in the Paramount+ movie Finestkind. As to your question, you can buy our audiobooks wherever audiobooks are sold. Search "Cleo Coyle" and that should do the trick!

The Ghost

THE GHOST

After finishing all but the last two books in the coffee house list, I stared the ghost series. Honestly, I was hesitant about the concept. After the first chapter of the first book, The Ghost and Mrs McClure, I was hooked. I breezed through the first seven books of the ghost series, so I was thrilled to see there were two new ones.
 

More, more, more! I live in Ecuador, so when I order books, I have to have someone or a shipping company bring them to me. Once I get Honey Roasted #19 and Bulletproof Barista #20, I am going to read the entire series again from book 1.

Honey Roasted

After reading about the “honey”roasted coffee in the book, I wanted to try it. So I went online and found some at Loom Coffee Roasters. I ordered some beans. I can’t wait to try. I also shared some information about your CoffeeHouse Mysteries.

Thanks for the information.
--Denise

  

Cleo's reply -

You're very welcome, Denise. Thanks for telling us about your interest in the honey roasted coffee and your purchase from Loom Coffee Roasters. We have never tried coffee from that roaster, but they appear to be passionate about their craft, and we hope you enjoy it. We are also happy to share a link for the Savanah Bee Company's new product HONEY FOR COFFEE. We have not tried this yet, but (apropos of our Honey Roasted's theme) it looks like a wonderful pairing. 

For those who would like to learn more about the book Denise read, here is some info...
 

HONEY ROASTED is my 19th Coffeehouse Mystery. Pictured is the new paperback edition cover of my book, which my publisher is releasing on October 10th. CLICK HERE or on the book cover to learn more or pre-order this new paperback editon.

 

FYI - HONEY ROASTED was orignally released in hardcover, and I'm excited to see this new edition coming out for readers who may have borrowed the book from the library or listened on audio. Now is their chance to own a copy, including the wonderful recipe section at the back (with a special guide to honey at the start of it).

Love the Bookshop mysteries and ...

Plan to start the Coffeeshop mysteries very soon. Great suspense that keeps me reading... keep 'em coming. Thanks for entertaining me so well!

Cleo's reply - You're very welcome, and I hope you enjoy your trip to our Coffeehouse world and our beloved Village Blend coffee shop.

Our characters are quirky. They aren't perfect. And, of course, neither are we! But we love them anyway, and we hope you find them as entertaining as our many fans have over these past twenty years.

May you read (and eat) with joy!

Thanks for such interesting books

I found the haunted book series first and enjoyed it and was sad they were no longer written. Glad to read they are being resurrected. Then looked and found the coffeehouse mysteries. I’m still catching up but really enjoy the stories and characters but unlike some cozy mysteries these are informative and educational. I can’t say I ever wanted to live in a big city but I am always fascinated about the lifestyle and people. Your books satisfy so many levels. Happy 20th Anniversary. Hope you can find another 20 years of stories to share with your fans!

 

Cleo's reply - Thank you so much for the lovely note! Marc and I can't believe it's been twenty (20!) years this month since we first introduced Clare Cosi to the world in our very first Coffeehouse Mystery -- ON WHAT GROUNDS

Recipes

I found the Coffeehouse series and got my mom and my daughter both hooked too. We love the characters and the recipes. I came to the website to see if I could print one out. All I can find are Recipe Guides for each book but not the actual recipe instructions. Am I missing something?

Reply for Cleo: We are so happy to know that you (and your mom and daughter!) are enjoying the Coffeehouse Mysteries. Cleo's recipes are published in her Coffeehouse books. So if you turn to the back of the books, you will see the recipes. She creates the Recipe Guides for readers so that they can see what the recipes look like when they're made. Again, you will find Cleo's recipes in her books. 

Cleo also shares bonus recipes with her readers through her free E-Newsletter and CleoCoyleRecipes.com blog, as well as her social media. See links below...

But if you're a reader of her novels, then...

If you subscribe to Cleo's newsletter, you'll not only keep in touch with her on new releases and giveawyas of signed books, tote bags, recipe cards, and more, you will receive an auto-reply with links to some past newsletters, which also carry bonus recipes.

I LOVE MATTEO!

I just recently discovered the Coffee House mysteries! I listen to them on Audible. This may sound weird, but I TOTALLY have the hots for Matteo and how he looks in my mind! But Jim, the Navy Seal, was a good fantasy too! Sorry... I love the mysteries and I'm so glad I found them!

In love with this series already!

Not sure why I started with Brewed Awakening but this was my 1st. Oh my, I read the entire book on a ?? (Geneva to Philadelphia). Couldn't put it down. Now starting at the beginning!!!
