Dead to the Last Drop Review

Dead to the Last Drop Review
Clair Cosi and her crew open up a new Village Blend coffee house in Washington, D.C. while Clare is house-sitting in Georgetown. Unfortunately, the clients aren’t as prolific as desired. The climate changes when co-owner Gardner Evans opens up a jazz club on the second floor and a high-profile, and so far anonymous, member of the community begins to attend.

Once the news got out that Abby was the daughter of the current President of the United States, Clair wondered how she was going to keep the throngs down to a manageable number, especially the press.

Clare, Gardner, and the musicians were surprised how well Abby played jazz piano on open mic night. It didn’t take long before they were protecting her from those who might cause harm. When her parents find out about her nights out, a test of wills places Clair in the hot seat.

When Clair finds herself accused of murder, and the District of Columbia and the Feds are after her for conspiring to kidnap the President’s daughter, Clare and her NYPD detective boyfriend, Mike Quinn, find themselves on the run.

Dead to the Last Drop by Cleo Coyle is the fifteenth book in the popular Coffeehouse Mysteries. Cleo Coyle is the pen name for Alice Alfonsi and her husband, Marc Cerasini. They are also the authors of the bestselling Haunted Bookshop Mysteries.

This fast paced cozy mystery was a rush from start to finish. The characters were well developed and true to life. The authors obviously spent time in deep research.

While their coffee blend stories are a long running series, readers can easily read this novel as a stand-alone mystery.

Their books aren’t just fun to read, but are also educational. In the back of this book you will find information about various U.S. Presidents and the coffee they drank, a new online Jazz Space link reached through Cleo’s, and other Jazz related resources, numerous recipes and tips from the Village Blend.
