Coffee

Is there a Village Blend actual coffee to buy?...Like a Breakfast Blend?

 

Cleo's reply:

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.

 

To buy the "Billionaire's Blend"
coffee, CLICK HERE or on the
image below and read my post. 



You will see links in my post

coffee, named after our

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!! 

-Amy O.                                                                                                                  SHOT IN THE DARK 
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. 

Love,

~ Cleo

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.

 

Cleo's reply:

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...

Coffeehouse Mysteries - Too Good for a TV Show

I read the blog below asking you to consider doing a TV show. Every time I see a book I love turned into a TV show or movie, it disappoints. The show does not provide the viewer with the private thoughts and desires and emotions of the characters. We see the surface of the story only. And the actors are NEVER right.

Newest Haunted Bookshop book

Been waiting years for this. Hopefully, a re-start of this great series.

the ghost and the bogus bookseller

release dates are different on the same page

Cleo's reply - The book's original release was October 2nd. The publisher is moving it up to an earlier week -- September 25th to take advantage of Halloween promotions in bookstores. Hope you'll enjoy your return visit to our Haunted Bookshop.

A Shot in the Dark

I was hoping (spoiler deleted)... I have read them all, and it’s been a long time coming.

Necklace

Cleo, my girl friend and I love the new necklace your friend made with the coffeehouse mystery book covers. We were wondering if she will be making any bracelets?

 

Cleo's reply -

Thank you for your patience on waiting for my reply. With our new release of Shot in the Dark, life has been a little crazy. The jewelry designer who created the necklace from tiny versions of our book covers created it as a custom-made piece for one of our Coffeehouse Mystery readers. She also makes bracelets and pins and even earrings. You can find this designer on Etsy and contact her there with any questions or special orders. She's wonderful.

Red Twig Reminds me of The Village Blend

 

 

Hi Cleo,

There is a Coffee House in Edmonds Washington that reminds me of The Village Blend. The Red Twig in Edmonds is very charming and roasts it’s own beans!!! Very Good Coffee. Better than Starbucks. I always tell somebody in there about your books whenever I go in.

 

Cleo's reply - Beautiful! Belated thanks for dropping by my board to let me know. I linked to Red Twig for anyone who wants to find them. Please give a caffeinated wave from Cleo to everyone there! I love that you are spreading the word for your local coffeehouse -- and letting others know about your enjoyment of our books.

You're a coffee angel.

xoxo

Question on Kindle

Would you ever put your books available on Kindle Unlimited? I love your series but I have had to get them through my local library and I wish I could get them through my Unlimited membership...

Cleo's reply - First of all, thank you kindly for reading our books. We truly appreciate it! Because we publish with Penguin Random House, our books are available wherever books are sold. If your library does not have all of our titles, take a minute and ask a librarian for help. Ask if the library you go to is part of a larger circulation system. You might be surprised and find that you have access to more books than you think. If not, we hope you will ask them to carry our complete series. You might let them know our lastest Coffeehouse Mystery SHOT IN THE DARK is a Mystery Pick of the Month by Library Journal. We are avaible for purchase on Kindle and Nook and through iBooks and most other digital platforms, but we are not in the program you mentioned at this time and don't foresee that happening, so we wish you luck on the other ideas we have for you. Again, thank you for reading and for stopping by our message board. 

Wishing you joy,

~ Cleo

Found you through a dream about Angel Wings

My husband died the 17 Feb 2018 and I'm planning for his memorial on the 24th of March. Last night I had a dream about the Angel Wings, Googled Cookies: Angel Wings and there was your link w/illustrations. I hope to try making them as the memorial is the day before Palm Sun. and what better for a memorial for someone who just left heaven bound than Angel Wings. Thank you. I had never heard of your books though I love mysteries. Mary Ann S.

 

CLEO'S REPLY:

Dear Mary Ann,

Your note touched me deeply. I'm so sorry for the painful loss that you're experiencing, and I thank you for sharing your note about what led you here. For many of us, the foods in our lives tell a tale, don't they? I learned to make those Angel Wings from my beloved Aunt Mary. She was born in Italy with my mother and they came to America together. She lived with us and helped raise me and my older sister. So she was a very close member of our family, and I miss her very much. How perfect it is that your name is Mary, too. How perfect that those beautiful cookies came to you in a dream and you found the post I created out of love and respect for a lost loved one. The recipe I shared has lots of illustrations and tips, so I hope your cookies come out beautifully and when you and your guests eat them at your husband's memorial, I hope they will bring joyful memories of the man you loved, and who loved you.

Warmest wishes and blessings,

~ Cleo (Alice)

I love coffee and I love your coffeehouse mysteries!

I relate to your books not just because I love mysteries and coffee, but also because I am a petite woman who loves a tall detective! I also love that you come across as a normal, one of us kind of girls! I can never put your books down until I'm done and then I can hardly wait for the next one! May your life be filled with mystery, coffee, love and laughter.

 

Cleo's reply - HOW WONDERFUL! Thank you for the beautiful note. Cheers for the "normal," believe me, I know what you mean! I hope you will continue to enjoy my books for years to come.

Love, 

Cleo
