Once Upon a Grind

Coffeehouse Mystery, #14

This is the 14th book in Ms. Coyle’s Coffeehouse Mystery series. Fairy Tales are one of the things a lot of people love. They usually start with a once upon a time and end with happily ever after. In this case readers can change the Once Upon a Time to Once Upon a Grind. This story is about those wonderful magical beans and the oh, so inevitable murder. The author has a way of leading the reader through good story telling and characters. She will keep you entertained.

This is a cozy mystery and of course with your Once Upon a Grind you must have a cup of coffee or cappuccino. So get your cup of hot, a steaming good cup of coffee, and your blanket to toss across your feet. It’s time to get cozy in so many ways. Once you begin reading you won't begin to stop.

I’ve not read all the books in this series. But I hope to begin with the first book and continue on. This is a series where I know I will just love every one of the books.


Book Blurb for Once Upon a Grind

From the New York Times bestselling author of Billionaire Blend comes an enchanting new entry in the "satisfyingly rich" Coffeehouse Mystery series. Includes wicked good recipes!

When coffeehouse manager turned amateur sleuth Clare Cosi roasts "magic" beans for a Fairy Tale Fall event, she brews up a vision that leads to a sleeping beauty in Central Park; a big, bad wolf of Wall Street; and an East Side enclave with storybook secrets...

Fairy tale fever has descended on New York City. Broadway fans are flocking to Red Riding Hood: The Musical; museums are exhibiting art inspired by the Brothers Grimm; and Clare Cosi and her merry band of baristas give their coffee truck a "Jack and the Beanstalk" makeover for a Central Park festival. Clare's coffee hunter ex-husband contributes a bag of African beans with alleged magical properties. His octogenarian mother entertains customers with readings of the grinds, but Clare remains skeptical--until she receives a vision that helps her find a young model's body in the park's woods. The police dismiss "sleeping beauty" as the victim of a drug overdose. Then Clare uncovers evidence that points to a list of suspects--from a New York Giant to quite a few wicked witches--and a cold case murder that reaches back to the Cold War. Now Clare is really in the woods with a dangerous predator on her heels and an investigation that leads from a secret Prince Charming Club right back to her own NYPD detective boyfriend. If she doesn't solve this mystery, those magic beans predict an unhappy ending.
