New Yorker Clare Cosi manages a coffee shop, but this summer she'll leave it behind as she heads for the Hamptons-and perhaps the biggest jolt of her life ... Clare Cosi's new friend, millionaire David Mintzer, has an offer no New York barista could turn down: an all-expenses-paid summer away from the sticky city. At his Hamptons mansion, she'll relax, soak up the sun, and, oh yes, train the staff of his new restaurant.

Written by married co-authors, the Coffeehouse Mysteries are some of my favorite cozies. Set in a popular coffee house in NYC, the stories always have a sweet mix of coffee, life in New York and murder. I've read most of the books in this series before, but decided it was time to start all over at the beginning and read them again. :)

Murder Most Frothy is the 4th book in the series. Clare Cosi is spending some time away from Village Blend in the city. She's staying at a posh Hamptons mansion to help her friend, David Mintzer serve coffee at his summer galas. The July 4th party ends with a bang when Clare discovers a barista dead in Mintzer's private bathroom. Nobody heard the gunshots over the fireworks. Clare thinks someone is gunning for Mintzer and shot the wrong person. She's determined to protect her friend and discover the killer.

I listened to the audio book version of this story. Narrator Rebecca Gibel did a great job reading and providing voices to all the characters. At about 7.5 hours, the audio book from Blackstone Audio was an enjoyable listen. I have partial hearing loss and sometimes female voices are hard for me to hear properly. But I was easily able to hear and enjoy this entire book. :)

I love Clare as a main character. She's intelligent, feisty and a great business manager. Her situation is really unique....Village Blend is owned by her former mother in law and she will someday co-own the business with her ex-husband. She lives above the coffee shop in a posh furnished apartment, which she often shares with her ex when he's in town. They get along....with only a few moments of snark here and there. It all works out....Village Blend is a thriving business....even with a murder here and there thrown in to distract Clare.

The Coffeehouse Mystery series has 17 books, with an 18th book -- Brewed Awakenings -- coming out in 2019. Alice Alfonsi and her husband Marc Cerasini, using the pen name Cleo Coyle, also write the Haunted Bookshop series, another of my favorites. ( )

Hours before I found the body, one of Detective Mike Quinn's pithy comments came back to haunt me: "You know, Clare, it's a little known principle of physics, a great deal of money can create a completely separate universe."

This was an ok murder mystery involving a coffee barista.

Digital audio read by Rebecca Gibel.

Book four in the Coffeehouse Mystery series. Clare Cosi has accepted her millionaire friend David’s offer of an all-expenses-paid summer away from the city. At his Hamptons mansion, she’ll be able to relax while training the staff of his new restaurant. But their first event is marred when one of her employees turns up dead in David’s bathroom. Thanks to the Fourth of July fireworks, no one heard the gunshot, and the police are stuck in holiday traffic, so Clare begins to investigate.

I really like this series. The principal characters are well developed, and I really like the relationship between Clare, her ex-husband and their daughter. Madame (Clare’s mother-in-law) is a hoot and really gets involved in this case. A little excursion outside Manhattan also allows Coyle to introduce a new potential love interest. I’d certainly like to see Jim back in the picture in future episodes. Now, please excuse me while I go get a mocha frappe!

Rebecca Gibel does a fine job narrating the audiobook. I love the way she voices Madame! ( )

I don't usually read this kind of book. An adult "cozy" mystery where the character is older than me and sort of investigates a murder by accident. I did end up liking it a lot more than I thought I would. The main character Clare runs a coffeehouse and is constantly making these blends that sound amazing. I wish I knew all about coffee and how to make it completely from scratch like that. She is pretty smart and sensible and is on somewhat good terms with her ex husband even after how terribly he treated her, which is some pretty good self restraint. The plot was kind of fun to follow, although who was behind the killings was pretty apparent I thought. I liked the friends Clare made and there was a dash of romance at the end. ( )
