I've got the next 2 or 3 in this series, but haven't been able to find the first book, so I recently bought this from BetterWorldBooks.com. Looking forward to starting this series soon.

From the cover -
Clare Cosi used to manage the historic Village Blend coffeehouse... until she opted for quieter pastures and a more suburban life. But after ten years and a little friendly cajoling from the owner (a fresh pot of Jamaican Blue Mountain was all it took), she's back to the grind, serving coffee and solving crime - one cup at a time...
With a sprawling rent-free apartment directly above The Village Blend, her cat Java by her side, and plenty of coffeehouse redecorating ideas, Clare is thrilled to return to work. Until she discovers the assistant manager unconscious in the back of the store, coffee grounds strewn everywhere. Police arrive on the scene to investigate. But when they find no sign of forced entry or foul play, they deem it an accident. Case closed. But Clare is not convinced. And after the police leave, there are a few things she just can't get out of her mind... Why was the trash bin in the wrong place? If this wasn't an accident, is Clare in danger? And... are all detectives this handsom?

An enjoyable mystery and a quick read, I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery set in Greenwich Village in NYC. Although not a coffee lover, I do enjoy a cozy coffeehouse setting. And this book had that, and more. A good mystery, an enjoyable setting, and wonderful characters. I'm looking forward to reading many more in this series. I'll be following this up with #2, Through the Grinder.

This is reserved for an upcoming cozy bookbox.

Someone (I won't mention any names, but the person who registered this book and had the CozyMystery BookBox before me) strongly encouraged me to check out this series. I also selected the second in the series, given the positive review she gave me.

Adding this to MtTBR, which shouldn't be allowed to get any taller, but what can you do?

Journal Entry 5 by wing6of8wing at Silver Spring, Maryland USA on Tuesday, October 02, 2012
Absolutely loved this book! I picked it up for a quick peek to see if I wanted to read it next and didn't put it down until I'd read the first 10 chapters. The characters were warm and endearing and the setting was interesting. The mystery was well done and the stuff about coffee was interesting -- and I have never had a cup of coffee in my life and never will. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

So glad MaryZee recommended it -- I plan to add it to the Kitteez and Kozeez Book Box I will be doing in her memory, since it has a kitty who plays a pivotal role in the storyline.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

I am sending the first two books in this series to a friend of mine in Florida because I think she will enjoy them. Better than having them sit on my shelf forever while I try to get another plan together.
