From the New York Times bestselling author of Once Upon a Grind comes an exciting new installment in the "highly satisfying"* Coffeehouse Mystery series. *Publishers Weekly
After the White House asks coffeehouse manager and master roaster Clare Cosi to consult on the coffee service for a Rose Garden Wedding, she discovers a historic pot was used as a CIA "dead drop" decades before. Now long-simmering secrets boil over, scalding Clare and the people around her...
Clare's visit to the nation's capital is off to a graceful start. Her octogenarian employer is bunking with her in a charming Georgetown mansion, and she's invited to work with a respected curator on the Smithsonian's culinary salute to coffee in America.
Unfortunately, Clare's new Village Blend DC is struggling to earn a profit--until its second floor jazz club attracts a high-profile fan, the college-age daughter of the U.S. President. Clare's stock rises as the First Lady befriends her, but she soon learns a stark lesson: Washington can be murder.
First a stylish State Department employee suspiciously collapses in her coffeehouse. Then the President's daughter goes missing. Is she a runaway bride or is something more sinister in play? After another deadly twist, Clare is on the run with her NYPD detective boyfriend. Branded an enemy of the state, she must piece together clues and uncover the truth before her life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness come to a bitter end.

Peggy - Thank you so much for the lovely comment, and I'm
happy to report that in its first week on sale DEAD TO THE
LAST DROP has hit multiple bestseller lists and readers have
told me it's sold out at many of their local stores! Nice
news. And no worries, the stores will re-stock! I hope you
enjoy Clare's trip to Washington, Peggy, it's an exciting
entry in our series, and there are characters you'll meet
who are still close to our hearts. We hope you are charmed
by them, as well.
Thank you for the holiday joy. Merry Christmas to you and
your family and may your New Year be bright!
