Cleo Coyle returns with another installment to the Coffeehouse Mystery series. In BULLETPROOF BARISTA, excitement spreads at the Village Blend because the popular streaming network show "Only Murders in Gotham" decides to shoot at their beloved coffeehouse. However, when a real shooting and crime occurs during the filming, Clare and the rest of her crew are shocked and concerned. Can they find out who the killer is before another death occurs?
I’ve always enjoyed the scenarios that Coyle brings to their books. However, this one might be one of my favorites. I loved the idea of the TV show shooting at the Village Blend. Much like the patrons and the crew, I felt excited about the prospect, knowing that it would bring a lot of excitement and intrigue to the book. And boy, I was definitely right! This book has amazing pacing, excellent dialogue, and a fantastic mystery to top it all off! I couldn’t have asked for more.
Another great thing about this series is that the characters continue to grow on you more and more. Although Clare still remains my favorite, there are so many other fantastic characters in this series that I’ve grown very fond of. I enjoy coming back to this series again and again.
You definitely don’t want to miss out on BULLETPROOF BARISTA! Cleo Coyle aims and hits readers right in the heart with this one!
When a film crew’s location shoot delivers an actual shooting, Clare Cosi finds herself at the scene of a true crime in this showstopping entry in the beloved Coffeehouse Mysteries from New York Times bestselling author Cleo Coyle.
Only Murders in Gotham, the smash-hit streaming program, is famous for filming in authentic New York locations and using real New Yorkers as extras. For its second season, they've chosen to spotlight the century-old Village Blend and its quirky crew of baristas. Shop manager and master roaster Clare Cosi is beyond thrilled, especially when her superb bulletproof coffee lands her a craft services contract for the production.
Madame, the eccentric octogenarian owner of the landmark shop, reveals an old kinship with the star of the show, comedian Jerry Sullivan. Now a Hollywood legend, Jerry frequented the Blend during his early years performing in Greenwich Village comedy clubs. But the past may hold more than nostalgia for Jerry. Suspicious accidents begin plaguing his shoot. Then a real bullet is fired from a stage gun, and Clare becomes convinced something sinister is afoot.
While Jerry’s production moves to exciting new locations, Clare keeps the coffee flowing—and her investigation going—even as a murderer lurks in the wings. But can she root out the rotten player in this Big Apple production before the lights go out on her?
