Honey Roasted (A Coffeehouse Mystery)
by Cleo Coyle
To borrow an old expression Honey Roasted is the “bee knees”, and a real honey of a story. It will hold a space on my best reads list for this year. I LOVED IT!

Honey Roasted by Cleo Coyle is a sweet surprise even though she has proven time and time again that her mysteries never disappoint her readers.

Makes for a fabulously fun read as it all plays out. It made me want some honey by the time I was done. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.

So entertaining and engaging, Honey Roasted is definitely well worth the time invested and I’m pretty sure it will be among my favorite cozy reads of 2022.
~Brianne’s Book Reviews
The story is filled with quirky characters, twists and turns, and even a little drama. Clever plotting kept the story moving and the killer’s identity secret until near the end. If you love mysteries, coffee, or just want to learn a little about bees, this one’s for you.
~Mysteries with Character
Whenever I read a Coffeehouse Mystery, I feel like I’m coming home to old friends. This was a fun, entertaining mystery and I can’t wait to see what is next for book number 20.

Clare Cosi is busy as a bee planning her honeymoon when murder buzzes into the Village Blend in this all-new mystery in the beloved New York Times bestselling Coffeehouse series by Cleo Coyle.
While struggling to find a romantic (and affordable) destination for her upcoming honeymoon, coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi whips up a honey of a drink made from honey-processed coffee. Clare plans to serve her outstanding new Honey-Cinnamon Latte at her spring wedding to her longtime honey, NYPD detective Mike Quinn. The culinary world is also abuzz about the amazing honey that Clare was lucky enough to source for her shop’s new latte. Produced by Madame’s old friend “Queen” Bea Hastings, the rare, prize-winning nectar from Bea’s rooftop hives commands a premium price, and top chefs compete for a chance to use it in their signature seasonal dishes.
One night, a swarm of escaped bees blanket the Village Blend’s chimney, and Clare discovers Bea’s unconscious body after she seemingly fell from her high-rise rooftop-hive setup. The police want to rule it as a tragic accident or possible attempted suicide, but Clare does not believe either theory. Like Madame, she knows this Queen would never abandon her hive. To sort out this mystery, Clare investigates a world of cutthroat chefs, culinary start-ups, and competitive urban beekeepers. But can she uncover the truth without getting stung?
