Hi, is there going to be a news letter release before the next Haunted Bookshop mystery is released?
Very much enjoyed Dead to the Last Drop, but I can't find this recipe on line. Many thanks. Bronwyn
Reply - Bourbon can be a harsh ingredient. Chances are high most folks will not like that version. Better to use Kahlua! Cleo used the coffee-lovers affogato technique to show her readers how to spike any brownie recipe (your favorite scratch recipe or even a boxed mix).

Love the stories, love the recipes!Not only are your books very interesting, exciting, and fun, but I've tried many of your recipes and they are fantastic as well! I share your passion for coffee and food, which makes reading your stories that much more fun. Plus, I always seem to learn something new when I read your books - whether about NYC, sleuthing, roasting coffee, cooking, etc.! Thanks for such wonderful stories! Now I have to start reading your Haunted Bookshop series : )

Best Actor for Matteo AllegroBenjamin Bratt!!
Best actor for Matteo AllegroIf a movie or TV series was ever done for your stories, Lou Diamond Phillips would be the best choice for Matteo! That's who I see when I read the books.
Your books are fantasticI am not a coffee drinker, really don't like the flavor in anything. But that desn't stop me from reading your books. Found some a the library and have followed the list. I pick them up our library. Your story lines are great and you have to read the last few pages to the how it all falls into place. I do look at your recipes too. I past by the coffee, but found some good goodies. Looking forward to the muffins. Thank you so much for good clean fun books
Love the coffeehouse seriesJust finished Shot in the Dark and you have really outdone yourselves! Each book just gets better and better. The characters, recipes and bits of history woven in to the mysteries make these so enjoyable. Thank you so much and please keep adding more to the series!
July 4thHi, just wanted to make sure I got the 4th of July newsletter. Is it out? Thank You
Bogus Bestseller new release dateI've been waiting for this for a very long and I'm so excited that the release is a week earlier-just 2 days after my birthday. I have a reminder on my cell phone so I don't forget. The book is being released everywhere where books are sold in paperback correct? Can't wait to read Pen and Jack's new adventure!!!!! :D
Billionaire Blend Coffee BeansGood Afternoon! I've an avid follower of Claire Cosi and her crew! I absolutely love ALL of the books in the series and have used the recipes to recreate some of my most favorite items. I even went so far as to purchase a Puna coffee bean from Hawaii and the other two beans types because it was mentioned in the series (and I love that blend!!!!). I just ordered a Timor (from Shot in the Dark) coffee bean and am anxiously awaiting it's delivery ^_^. Although the beans used for the Billionaire Blend were not actually named, does anyone have an idea of the beans that Matt would have used? Thx!
Excitement building!!I am counting down the weeks and looking forward to counting days until Bogus Bestseller arrives! I know the wait will be worth it! Love the Haunted Bookshop stories. Bernie email@example.com

Audio booksDo you plan to release the earlier Coffehouse Mysteries on audiobook?
Is there a Village Blend actual coffee to buy?...Like a Breakfast Blend?
When our 13th Coffeehouse Mystery BILLIONAIRE BLEND was published, a master coffee roaster created a special coffee blend as a tribute. You can buy this amazing coffee, which he named "Billionaire's Blend" (after our book) from a shop called One Good Woman. The shop sells premium coffees and teas, and it's been selling this coffee (named after our book) for going on five years.

My “Mystery Fix”
There’s just nothing like a new Coffeehouse Mystery to quench the need for a satisfying “mystery fix!” I’m forcing myself to savor “Shot In The Dark” in 50-page “sips,” and I am throughly enjoying it! This morning, I did a bit of internet sleuthing to see if the Cinder app actually exists...not because I want to use it, but because it sounds *so real!” Kudos to you both for another savory story!!

Now a National bestseller
Cleo's reply -
THANK YOU, AMY!
It is pure pleasure hearing from readers like you. We never tire of it, and it always inspires us. Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to let us know how much you enjoyed our latest work. Knowing that we wrote about our "Cinder" app so believably that you actually searched for information about it on the internet makes us so happy, thank you for sharing that. And now we have something to share with you. If you haven't yet seen or downloaded our Free Recipe Guide to SHOT IN THE DARK's foods and drinks, we're happy to do so now. Just click the image below and you have an instant illustrated recipe section to the book. Thanks again for stopping by. We hope you continue to enjoy our work. We're already writing next year's Coffeehouse Mystery, and we hope you'll not only keep reading but keep in touch.
Read (and eat) with joy!
Shot In The Dark
Love the coffee house mysteries...the latest Shot In The Dark made a reference to Joan Mitchell as a folk singer from the 60's. I believe it should have been Joni Mitchell or Joan Baez not Joan Mitchell.
Glad to know you're enjoying our stories. You should know that "Joan Mitchell" is correct. She was a gifted painter and leading artist of the New York School. You can read more about her by clicking here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_Mitchell
We never referred to "Joan Mitchell" as a folk singer! Take another look at our actual words. We named some of the great creative talents of that time who were served by the Village Blend, and Joan Mitchell was among them. (FYI - Joni Mitchell was born in Canada, where she began her career singing in local nightclubs. Her birth name is actually Roberta Joan.)
Thank you for allowing us to clear that up for you, and thanks especially for reading our work. The longtime support of our readers is why we're still here after 15 years and 17 books, and we'll never forget that.
New Series to Me
I found your series when I had to review it for Night Owl Magazine, and now I'm hooked!!!!! When I grow up I want to write just like you! One of the best mystery series out today! Hope to see many more.
Cleo's reply -
THANK YOU SO MUCH! We found your review of SHOT IN THE DARK here, and it is so incredibly kind (truly amazing for us to read).
A "Top Pick!" too, woot!
We are happy to share part of it right now (below), and we'll be sharing it on Facebook, too. We're so glad you found our series, and we hope you continue to enjoy our Coffeehouse Mysteries and our Haunted Bookshop Mysteries, which we now writing again after a nearly 10-year hiatus (more to come on Jack coming back).
Until then, be well and may
you alway read with joy! Love...
"A SURE FIRE HIT!"
I see them referred to in the newsletter, but can you post the actual recipe and directions?
Our recipe for Blueberry Scones is included in your copy of SHOT IN THE DARK. Just turn to the back of your book, and we hope you enjoy it! It's a wonderful recipe, truly delicious.
