5/5 Food Trucks
On The Back:
Coffee. It can get a girl killed.
A shocking hit-and-run in front of her Village Blend coffeehouse spurs Clare Cosi into action. A divorced, single mom in her forties, Clare is also a dedicated sleuth, and she’s determined to track down this ruthless driver who ran down an innocent friend and customer. In the meantime, her ex-husband Matt, the shop’s globetrotting coffee buyer, sources some amazing new beans from Brazil. But he soon discovers that he’s importing more than coffee, and Clare may have been the real target of that deadly driver. Can ex-husband and wife work together to solve this mystery? Or will their newest brew lead to murder?
This series has been my favorite cozy series for awhile now and with each book it just keeps getting better. This book exhibited all of the humor, action, and mystery the books before it had and it still retains a “cozy” feeling even though it’s set in New York City.
In this book I felt that we saw growth in the MC, Clare. She grew in her relationships with Mike and Matt and in herself, in my opinion. I want to give an example of how she grew, but they all have spoilers, so I’m not going to. I also thought you saw growth in Mike and Matt towards each other. Some things they go through in this book make them stop seeing each other as enemies.
I loved the new characters; Lilly, Max, and Jeremy and I really hope we see more of them soon. I also loved that Ester, nancy and Dante took bigger parts in this book, I’ve always loved all of the baristas and it was good to see them get a spotlight.
The mystery was superb, and I didn’t guess the killer until Clare did. There were a lot of branches going off of the murder to give you a lot of suspects that all had viable motives.
Overall a phenomenal book and, quite possible, the best in this series yet. Can'[t wait to pick up the next one!
