Cleo Coyle, the author of this week’s review is actually the pseudonym for a successful husband and wife writing team. A Brew to Kill is the eleventh in the successful coffeehouse mystery series. The library doesn’t have the other volumes at this time, but they are always available on interlibrary loan. However, A Brew to Kill can be read on its own with no confusion. Clare Cosi, owner of the Greenwich Village coffee shop called the Village Blend, has purchased a food truck to sell muffins to keep ahead of the competition. But when a mystery vehicle mows down a good friend, Clare is on high alert. Then, what was supposed to be a shipment of coffee beans turns out to be drugs. Clare’s ex-husband is still a business partner, but could he really be into trafficking drugs? And was that hit and run meant for Clare? Clare now has quite a mystery to solve with her ex-husband plus, a young and brash undercover cop as a new employee. The back of the book has quite a large recipe section covering both sweet and savory foods. The author provides a website with even more recipe selections to muse over.
You can get the book reviewed here and more great titles to watch, read, listen to, or play with at the Port Library at 1718 N. Hersey in Beloit, on the North Campus. This is director Rachel Malay, saying “Thanks for checking us out!”
