From the New York Times bestselling author of
Billionaire Blend comes an enchanting new entry in
the "satisfyingly rich" Coffeehouse Mystery series.
Includes wicked good recipes.
When coffeehouse manager turned amateur sleuth Clare Cosi
serves "magic" beans for a Fairy Tale Fall event, she brews
up a vision that leads to a sleeping beauty in Central Park;
a big, bad wolf of Wall Street; and an East Side enclave
with storybook secrets...
Fairy tale fever has descended on New York City.
Broadway fans are flocking to Red Riding Hood: The
Musical; museums are exhibiting art inspired by the
Brothers Grimm; and Clare Cosi and her merry band of
baristas give their coffee truck a "Jack and the Beanstalk"
makeover for a Central Park festival. Clare's coffee hunter
ex-husband contributes a bag of African beans with alleged
magical properties. His octogenarian mother entertains
customers with readings of the grinds, but Clare remains
skeptical--until she receives a vision that helps her find a
young model's body in the park's woods.
The police dismiss "sleeping beauty" as the victim of a drug
overdose. Then Clare uncovers evidence that points to a list
of suspects--from a New York Giant to quite a few wicked
witches--and a cold case murder that reaches back to the
Cold War. Now Clare is really in the woods with a dangerous
predator on her heels and an investigation that leads from a
secret Prince Charming Club right back to her own NYPD
detective boyfriend. If she doesn't solve this mystery,
those magic beans predict an unhappy ending.
