Has Clare met her match in this coffee loving millionaire, Eric Thorner? He has tested all her barista’s coffee knowledge and driven them crazy with his crazy coffee requests. As he was sparing with Clare about unusual coffee concoctions a car bomb explodes right in front of the coffeehouse nearly killing the coffee quiz master and injuring several others. With her shop out of commission Clare’s world turns upside down as Thorner takes her and her ex on a whirlwind tour to find the best coffee beans so she can make the most expensive coffee in the world. All the while Clare is wondering – Is this charming young CEO truly marked for termination? Or is he the one making a killing?
Her hunky detective boyfriend, Mike Quinn is not happy she is spending so much time with the techy CEO, but his assignment is Washington is keeping him away from New York right now. He knows she is going to get right in the middle of this investigation and there is nothing he can do about or can he??? He is going to make sure his friends on the NYPD do everything they can to keep Clare safe.
Includes a wealth of delicious recipes!
This was a very entertaining read.
Coyle has a great crew of regular characters that readers have come to love more with each new story. In this installment she adds Eric Thorner, his sister, his business associates and his rival.
Clare and Matt get caught up in all the drama of Thorn Enterprises and realize that are also putting themselves in great danger. The author has brewed a very tight plot line that really captivated this reader.
The dialogue is smart and full of humor.
I love the way the city of New York is described especially the fancy restaurant Eric took Clare to for dinner. I felt like I was across the room taking in the whole experience. I also enjoyed a surprise destination Eric arranges for Clare too!
Yes, this is the 13th book in the series and I must admit I need to catch up on a couple of the ones I have missed but the author writes these stories in such a way that they can be read as stand alone. So if this is a new series to you or you have missed a book or two don’t fret, you will be engaged in this story very quickly. But then I just know you are going to want to read them all.
Oh and did I mention the recipes!!! They will grab you too!!
