Cleo Coyle | Billion Dollar Brew and a Latte Cup Giveaway
August 25, 2014
My amateur sleuth grew up much like I did, in a family of food-loving Italian
Americans. By the age of eight, I was learning to cook at the elbow of my dear
Aunt Mary, an experience Iâ€™ve treasured so much that Iâ€™ve lent it to the main
character in my long-running series of culinary mysteries.
Clare Cosi may have been raised in her grandmotherâ€™s little Italian grocery, but
sheâ€™s come a long way from making espressos in her nonnaâ€™s battered stovetop pot.
Now a master coffee roaster, Clare not only works with one of the best bean
hunters in the business, she manages a century-old coffeehouse in one of New
Yorkâ€™s most picturesque neighborhoods.
In many ways, Clareâ€™s life is rich, unfortunately her bank account isnâ€™t. At the
start of BILLIONAIRE BLENDâ€”just released in its brand new mass market
paperback editionâ€”Clare is trying to find the funds to overhaul her Greenwich
Village shopâ€™s aging faĂ§ade when a car bomb explodes on the street outside.
Amid the fire and chaos, Clare comes to the aid of an anonymous customer, an
intense young man who turns out to be billionaire tech whiz Eric Thorner.
Eric is so grateful to Clare for saving his life, and so impressed with her
knowledge of coffee, that he pays for repairs to her landmark shop and hires her
to create the most expensive blend on the planet. He also begins a subtle but
relentless campaign to win her affections.
As Clare is pulled deeper into Ericâ€™s world of antique limousines and high-tech
luxuries; French champagne and private planes, she meets a number of suspicious
staffers and cutthroat cronies.
Did one of Thornerâ€™s prickly associates plant the car bomb to end Ericâ€™s life?
Clare isnâ€™t so sure, especially when questions arise about Eric himself and an
â€śaccidentalâ€ť death in his past. Could this accomplished young CEO be capable of
To solve this case, Clare will use her ingenuity (and her recipes). By the end
of the book, youâ€™ll have taken a trip with Clare to an exclusive millionaireâ€™s
club, flown with her to a bohemian Paris neighborhood, visited some of the most
intriguing coffee growing regions of the worldâ€”and uncovered the dark motives
behind several murders.
Because this is a â€śculinaryâ€ť mystery, you will also have over 20 fun recipes to
try in your own kitchen, including a list of Clareâ€™s secret off-the-menu
coffeehouse drinks, as well as tasty foods enjoyed by the characters in the book.

BLEND marks the 13th book in my Coffeehouse Mystery series, you can

Re: Cleo Coyle | Billion Dollar Brew and a Latte Cup Giveaway
I have wanted to read Billionaire Blend for the longest
time!! I had it written down on my TBR list, then my Father
got sick, and with everything else going on in my life, I
had to drop everything, and take care of matters at hand.
My Father passed away in late April, and I'm still not over
the shock, but am trying to get on with things. I have,
once again, put your book on my TBR list, and I can start
where it all began. I love when you come to Fresh Fiction,
to not only talk about your books, but to look at your
colorful covers, and to remind people like me, that I better
get on the bandwagon, and start reading your books!!
(Peggy Roberson 11:46am August 25, 2014)
I read the coffee house mysteries for awhile and really enjoyed them. I've missed the last few and have to get back in the swing. I love mysteries with entrepreneurs and Clare's coffee shop is so unique.
(Sandra Martin 12:38pm August 25, 2014)
I haven't read the coffee house books yet (there are so many
books beckoning to me), but they look like a delightful read.
(Deb Philippon 12:47pm August 25, 2014)
Thanks for the chance to win. Havven't read any, but will def be looking into them. Sounds like my kind of books :)

Love your series! I'm behind but will gladly read Billionaire
Blend out of order if I win! LOL!
(Kathy Church 4:42pm August 25, 2014)
Cleo, I really love your recipes. I love baking and cooking and look forward to adding these to my recipe collection. I have always enjoyed sharing them with my relatives after trying them out myself. I also love reading very much. I plan to read all of your books. I enjoy reading everything about authors on Fresh Fiction, and feel it's a great way to get to know you personally!
(Linda Luinstra 4:50pm August 25, 2014)
Oh how I wish I could cook. I just never grew up cooking so I
don't like it nor do it. But coffee, who doesn't love coffee?
Any way, shape, or form gotta love it! Congrats on the new

and Pinterest. Thanks for the title check list.
(Gayle Cochrane 10:58pm August 25, 2014)
Like you, I have grown up cooking at the feet of my
Grandmother, great grandmother and mom. You may have been
with your Aunt but I know you have wonderful memories and
recipes that will last a life time. My mother has a picture
of myself with biscuits going up my arm from my first
cooking experience at the age of 2. I have been cooking
since and my kids just didn't get that gene. However, my
grandkids do have it and my love of cooking has been shared
with them. My love of reading did pass to my children and
some level has passed to the grandkids. I have enjoyed your
recipes and made several with my granddaughter. Thank you
for the ability to pass your recipes to her. Also thank you
for the book.
(Tina Ullrich 12:28pm August 26, 2014)

A friend introduced me to your books a long time ago and we have been
enjoying them, and the recipes, ever since. My grandmother and mother were
both great cooks, but very different in their approach. I was lucky enough to
learn from both of them. I collect recipes and cookbooks like my mom did and
love to try new things and techniques, but I also like to go off on my own and
wing it like my grandma did, adding a pinch of this and that. I enjoy your recipes
on Mystery Lovers' Kitchen because they are delicious and low-fat!
(Sally Schmidt 9:59am August 26, 2014)
Billionaire Blend would be a delight. Cooking and baking is a
tradition in our family. My grandmother's expertise was
renowned and we try to duplicate all of her delectable

What a fun series and I look forward to each and every book and the "next chapter" in Claire's life. Hope the ride, or should I say "read", doesn't end anytime soon!! Thanks, Cleo, for bringing so much excitement and fun to the page.

I'm loving this! The way your book sounds I mean. I just love
the thrill! And if there's coffee involved - bingo!

I really loved the books and had pre ordered the one that was supposed to be published on my birthday in 2012 from Borders. Two big disappointments, no book and the closing of bookstores. I am waiting patiently but thought I should ask for myself and your other fans, please publish more soon. Thanks!

Whenever a new book is announced to be released, my family knows it is the number one item on my birthday or Christmas list. I enjoy nothing better than sitting with my cup of coffee, and reading about Clare, Mike, Madame, Matt, Joy and the Barista's at the Village Blend. A great mystery and a great cup of coffee, what could be better?

You should know by now that I am a huge fan of both the coffee house books and haunted books. Enjoy reading the "Coffeehouse Newsletter" and learning more about you and all that is good to drink and eat. Can't wait for next book! Love the coffee cup and would love to taste the coffee in it while reading your books!

Love getting your Coffeehouse Newsletter each time and this time it also gives me a chance to win the Italian coffee cup too. Yes, you have great contests, Cleo and Mark. I want to congratulate you on such great standings on the book sales, and I am sure that CD sales will be great too, at least from our family where we buy a lot of CD's. Thank you for being an author for the people; someone we feel that is a friend of ours which makes us want to read your books and your online pages even more. Keep up the great work; excited to read the next book but winning a copy would be fabulous of course, but I know I am not alone with that wish. :)
Thank you so much and congratulations once again.
You deserve all the praise and honors that you get for all of your hard work.

I'm a huge fan of everything Cleo Coyle - the books, the recipes, the Coffeehouse Newsletter. Love the books.
(Larraine Formica 12:03pm August 27, 2014)
Looks like a great series!
(Crystal Blackburn 12:14pm August 27, 2014)
Have been baking and reading mystery novels (Nancy Drew) since I stood at my granmother's side learning to make apple pie and many other wonderful comfort foods at age 10. I'm now 64 and am so pleased to find Coffee House Mysterys. I can tell you really love what you do and write from what you know which makes all the difference and brings the ring of truth to your stories. I'll keep on reading (I have your book list at home)and enjoy seeing how each character's emotions and personality evolve through each book. Best of luck with the new book, it sounds wonderful!

Sitting down with a hot cup of coffee, reading your coffeehouse newletter and pretending Hugh Jackman is across the table. Could not get much better.
(MaryEllen Hanneman 12:27pm August 27, 2014)
The only thing better than drinking a hot cup of coffee with the coffeehouse newsletter in front of one is sitting down with the latest coffeehouse mystery and having someone else bring you refills while you finish it.
(Maggie Newman 1:05pm August 27, 2014)
I can't wait to read it! And I love reading your Coffeehouse newsletter too.
(Kristine Murphy 1:09pm August 27, 2014)

I've read them all and look forward to another Coffeehouse
Mystery! It's like a mini party when I receive my
Coffeehouse newsletter - love it! I'm starting at a local
coffeehouse this weekend, having had no experience with
coffees other than what we make in our own home. After
having read your books, I feel I have a decent headstart on
becoming a great barista!

like cozying up with a warm blanket and a hot cup of my
favorite coffee.They are my go to, when I need a change or a

for me when I need them. Thank you so much for writing them

And I totally enjoy getting the Coffeehouse Newsletter also! Good reading. Please keep this wonderful series coming.... am looking forward to the next Coffeehouse Mystery! :-)
(Beverly Sivacek 6:36pm August 27, 2014)
I love the Cleo Coyle books they are so great! I have ants in my pants waiting for the new one in December! I love coffee and mysteries and it is rare to find a book that features both prominently but is also a book that is hard to put down and these books have both!
(Angela Jennings 7:24pm August 27, 2014)
these books are a joy to read! I seem to get lost in the
characters and the plot, unable to solve some of the
mysteries, but that is ok!Keep writing and I will keep
reading.Oh yea, the "Coffeehouse Newsletter"!
(Vickie Willliams 8:27pm August 27, 2014)
I have read all the books so far, except Billionaire Blend.
But I plan to read soon. Found out about the giveaway in the

(Jennifer Beck 10:24pm August 27, 2014)
Love this series! Fantastic giveaway that I saw in the offeehouse

I'm going with decadence ...the frozen peanut butter banana chocolate

(Ellen Dean 1:55pm August 28, 2014)
I just love the Coffeehouse mysteries. I can't wait to read
the latest one. I also enjoy the coffeehouse Newsletter.
(Ellen Duval 3:44pm August 28, 2014)
Thanks for the tip in your Coffeehouse newsletter about the giveaway. I truly enjoy this series and love trying the recipes. Coffee and treats.... what could be better along side a good story?
(Katherine Schafer 4:19pm August 28, 2014)
With Fall in the air, it would be lovely to look forward to
settling down as the leaves turn to a cup of freshly brewed
coffee in this cup and the latest issue of the Coffeehouse
Newsletter and another chapter of Billionaire Blend!
(Ruth Camisa 4:49pm August 28, 2014)
Between brilliant characters, fun plot lines and yummy recipes, what's not to
love?! The Coffeehouse Newsletter is an added treat. Can't wait for the next
book and newsletter.
(Susan Lawrence 5:18pm August 28, 2014)
We enjoy the books while we're driving.
(n Devlin 5:47pm August 28, 2014)
I love this series and always am waiting for the "next" one...
I've made some of the recipes. It helps me feel in touch with
NYC while living in the country. But mostyly I enjoy a good
story and I've enjoyed them all.
(Fain Webb 6:08pm August 28, 2014)
I just finished Billionaire Blend last night! What a great read...but I won't be
a spoiler. How do you feel this peach muffin recipe would work using either
dried peaches or peaches canned in juice, well-drained and patted dry?
(Naomi Rice 7:08pm August 28, 2014)
I always look forward to your newsletter for recipes. I just love trying the recipes.
(Kai Wong 12:47pm August 29, 2014)
I have read them all! My husband has read them all! I can't have my coffee in the morning without thinking of you! I've already pre-ordered the next book! Thank you! Your stories are ...wow...I can't think of one word to describe them...other than WHEN you start the book, you'd better have enough time to read it in one sitting, because you can't put it down!
(Mary Slocum 4:17pm September 4, 2014)
I love coffee, cats, and cozy mysteries. I think I have two in the series.
(Michelle Fidler 6:43pm September 8, 2014)
loved this latest installment of my favorite characters; this one was just as good as all the previous ones; I'm trying to read them all; have probably read at least 9 so far; keep up the writing and i'll keep up the joy of reading
