Dead to the Last Drop
by Cleo Coyle
The pacing was super fast and anytime I picked up the book just to squeeze in a chapter I found myself having to pry the book out of my hands ten chapters later!
~I Wish I Lived In a Library
This was such a great book, I adored everything about it.
~Musings and Ramblings
This is the best book yet in the series and that is very hard to say as each one is wonderful.
~Bab’s Book Bistro
You would think writing the review would be easy. But it’s not – because I can’t think of enough wonderful things to say about this book that haven’t already been said or that don’t make me sound like a junior high cheerleader with a serious crush. Seriously, the latest installment is an excellent read. I can’t say it’s the best in the series, because I have loved all the books. I will say it’s the best mystery I’ve read this year.
Clare is strong and independent woman and this story brings you captive from the very first page. You won’t want to put it down.
~Shelley’s Book Case
The mystery was plotted out brilliantly and I loved all the little twists and turns.
Clare could definitely be a detective with her knack for piecing things together from the scraps left behind and let me tell you, her clue-ometer is definitely turned on high in this one.
~Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers
The book is full of new adventures and plenty of mystery…
Dead To The Last Drop was a delicious mystery with entertaining characters, edge of your seat suspense that kept me turning the pages all through the night.
It’s cozy mystery in combination with suspenseful, edgy, thriller, interlaced with the romantic complications…

From the New York Times bestselling author of Once Upon a Grind comes an exciting new installment in the “highly satisfying”* Coffeehouse Mystery series. *Publishers Weekly
After the White House asks coffeehouse manager and master roaster Clare Cosi to consult on the coffee service for a Rose Garden Wedding, she discovers a historic pot was used as a CIA “dead drop” decades before. Now long-simmering secrets boil over, scalding Clare and the people around her…
Clare’s visit to the nation’s capital is off to a graceful start. Her octogenarian employer is bunking with her in a charming Georgetown mansion, and she’s invited to work with a respected curator on the Smithsonian’s culinary salute to coffee in America.
Unfortunately, Clare’s new Village Blend DC is struggling to earn a profit–until its second floor jazz club attracts a high-profile fan, the college-age daughter of the U.S. President. Clare’s stock rises as the First Lady befriends her, but she soon learns a stark lesson: Washington can be murder.
First a stylish State Department employee suspiciously collapses in her coffeehouse. Then the President’s daughter goes missing. Is she a runaway bride or is something more sinister in play? After another deadly twist, Clare is on the run with her NYPD detective boyfriend. Branded an enemy of the state, she must piece together clues and uncover the truth before her life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness come to a bitter end.
Includes great American recipes!
