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!

LOVED BULLETPROOF BARISTA

Hi, Cleo. I am a big fan of your books. Your latest Coffeehouse mystery Bulletproof Barista was fantastic. It was so much fun!! I laughed and laughed and loved the mystery. I could not guess the solution. You got me again. And the recipes are a wonderful bonus. Thank you for giving us these great characters and stories. I'm looking forward ot the next one. Keep up the great work. Bonnie

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 -- How exciting! Thank you for letting me know. I didn't see it, so... If you are able to send me the screenshot of what you saw, I would be grateful! Send it to this email address... 

    CoffeehouseMystery@gmail.com

     And thank you for letting me know!

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 how much l learned about coffee in these books

Cleo's reply - So glad to know you're enjoying our work. Much appreciated. (And on your question...deleted to prevent spoilers. You never know, keep reading!)

THANK YOU!

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!
July 25, 2023

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!!!

Narrator

First, I love all your books, and I just started to listen to the Ghost series recently on audible. I was wondering why the narrator was changed I thought I was reading a wrong book because the voice was so different. I thought it might have to do with Audible.

Character with two names?

Hi, I am listening through all your books and I am on book 17 and I’ve noticed that the character of Madame also called Blanche. Is this an error in the audiobook or is that on purpose?

Reply for Cleo -- "Madame" is the French title equivalent to Mrs. -- In other words, it is not a given name. She is called this as a form of respect and affection. Madame's first name is Blanche. 


June 20, 2023

Film Noir Movies

I just finished hearing 'The Ghost and The Femme Fatale' on Audible. Is there a list of all of the real Film Noir movies mentioned in this book? 

Reply for Cleo - Hey, you can always re-listen and make a list for yourself. Otherwise, no.


June 1, 2023

Audiobook

Hey I was wondering is the audio book for bulletproof barista going to be released at the same time as the hardcover?

Reply for Cleo -

All of Cleo's books are available in audio format. Bulletproof Barista will be out (at some point) in audio, but we can't say when just yet. At this time, you can pre-order the hardcover and ebook only. See links below...
