From Cleo Coyle, the New York Times bestselling
author of Shot in the Dark and Dead Cold Brew,
comes a delicious new entry in the "fun and gripping" (The
Huffington Post) Coffeehouse Mysteries.
When coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi awakens on a bench in
Washington Square Park, she has no idea she's been missing
for the past week, or that her friends and family have been
frantic with worry. Now that she's back, everyone is
overjoyed, including a handsome NYPD detective who claims to
be her fianc√©. But to Mike Quinn's crushing distress, Clare
doesn't remember him, or much of anything about the last
decade of her life.
Clare's missing memory is tied to a crime she witnessed. An
acquaintance of Clare's elegant employer--and fellow member
of an exclusive Gotham circle known as "The Ladies Who
Brunch"--invited Clare to her posh hotel to sample gourmet
wedding cakes. The pair took a stroll after their indulgent
tasting and, according to security camera footage, a masked
figure snatched the hotel heiress at gunpoint with Clare
looking on. Did the kidnapper take Clare, too? The camera
went dark, just like Clare's memory. Soon authorities grow
suspicious. Is Clare really a victim? Or merely acting like
one? Evidence is mounting that she set the woman up.
To clear her name, Clare must find a way to reclaim her
memories and rescue the heiress before this high-stakes
crime ends in tragedy. Otherwise, instead of walking down
the aisle, Clare may find herself perp-walking to prison as
an accomplice to kidnapping and murder.
