“A sparkling comedy of errors tucked inside a clever mystery. I loved it!” – Susan M. Boyer, USA Today Bestselling Author of Lowcountry Bordello

From a USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR

When Ellison Russell is nearly killed at a benefactors’ party, she brushes the incident aside as an unhappy accident. But when her house is fire-bombed, she’s shot at, and the person sitting next to her at a gala is poisoned, she must face facts. Someone wants her dead. But why? And can Ellison find the killer before he strikes again? Add in an estranged sister, a visiting aunt with a shocking secret, and a handsome detective staying in her guesthouse, and Ellison might need more than cream in her coffee…

Books in the Country Club Murders Humorous Mystery Series: THE DEEP END (#1) GUARANTEED TO BLEED (#2) CLOUDS IN MY COFFEE (#3) Part of the Henery Press Mystery Series Collection, if you like one, you’ll probably like them all… Author Bio: Julie Mulhern is the USA Today bestselling author of The Country Club Murders. She is a Kansas City native who grew up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie. She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean-and she’s got an active imagination. Truth is-she’s an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions.”

My Thoughts:

Wow. Each book in this series just gets better and better. Clouds in My Coffee was an outstanding book in an excellent series.

I love Ellison. She is absolutely hilarious! She has a spine, and isn’t afraid to tell people what she thinks. I also like Anarchy, though I wish we’d find out more about him. He’s still shrouded in mystery. The new characters introduced in this book; Aunt Sis and Marjorie are also wonderfully written. I hope we see more of them in the next book!

The mystery was excellent, but it takes a back seat to the characters and their problems, which is fine. Some authors try to do this and don’t pull it off. Ms. Mulhern tries it and wonderfully pulls it off!

Overall an absolutely wonderful book. I absolutely can not recommend this enough! I will read the next one!
