DEAD COLD BREW
by Cleo Coyle
Dead Cold Brew was a fast-paced story and once I got started, I couldn’t put it down. Fans of the series will not be disappointed, and even new readers should be able to pick this one up without feeling lost.
~The Book’s the Thing
It is so much fun to visit the coffeehouse and see what Clare and the crew are up to.
~A. Holland Reads
The set up and writing style make for a fast-paced read – which I love. I especially liked that there are multiple subplots weaved into the fabric of the main story.
The writing is tight and moves at a fast clip. Atmosphere, suspense, romance, and character depth combine to deliver an entertaining tale that hooked me from the first page.
~The Power of Words . . .
…a really exciting story…
What can I say about book 16 of the series? The characters are still as strong as when the series started and with more twists than a French braid.
Wow, want a page turner that makes you crave even more? Then this is the book for you. I couldn’t put it down once I started and I couldn’t stop thinking about it when I finished…
Dead Cold Brew is the 16th installment in this long running series and it is still brewing at a fevered pitch. These characters are so strong, current and real. The drama starts with an event that could be ripped from real life headlines…I now have a new book that is my favorite in this series.

From Cleo Coyle, the New York Times bestselling author of Dead to the Last Drop, comes a gripping new entry in the “highly satisfying”* Coffeehouse Mystery series. (*Publishers Weekly)
THE PERFECT PROPOSAL LEADS TO A CHILLING COLD CASE…
Coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi sheds tears of joy when her NYPD detective boyfriend surprises her with an engagement ring. But her bridal bliss is put on hold when a chilling mystery brings a wave of deadly danger to those she holds dear…
After everything Clare and Mike have been through, they deserve a little bit of happily ever after. So when Mike decides to put a ring on Clare’s finger, Clare’s eccentric octogenarian employer is there to help. She donates the perfect coffee-colored diamonds to include in the setting and the name of a world-famous jeweler who happens to be an old family friend. But while the engagement is steeped in perfection, the celebration is not long lived.
First, a grim-faced attorney interrupts their party with a mysterious letter bequeathing a strange, hidden treasure to Clare’s daughter. Next, the renowned jeweler who designed Clare’s ring is found poisoned in his shop. Both events appear to be connected to a cold case murder involving a sunken ship, an Italian curse, a suspiciously charming jewel thief, and a shocking family secret. With deadly trouble brewing, Clare must track down clues in some of New York’s most secret places before an old vendetta starts producing fresh corpses.
With recipes to die for, including how to make cold-brew coffee at home!
