From Cleo Coyle, the New York Times best-selling author of Dead to the Last Drop, comes a gripping new entry in the Coffeehouse Mystery series.
The perfect proposal leads to a chilling cold case. Coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi sheds tears of joy when her NYPD detective boyfriend surprises her with an engagement ring. But her bridal bliss is put on hold when a chilling mystery brings a wave of deadly danger to those she holds dear.
After everything Clare and Mike have been through, they deserve a little bit of happily ever after. So when Mike decides to put a ring on Clare's finger, Clare's eccentric octogenarian employer is there to help. She donates the perfect coffee-colored diamonds to include in the setting and the name of a world-famous jeweler who happens to be an old family friend. But while the engagement is steeped in perfection, the celebration is not long lived.
First, a grim-faced attorney interrupts their party with a mysterious letter bequeathing a strange hidden treasure to Clare's daughter. Next, the renowned jeweler who designed Clare's ring is found poisoned in his shop. Both events appear to be connected to a cold-case murder involving a sunken ship, an Italian curse, a suspiciously charming jewel thief, and a shocking family secret. With deadly trouble brewing, Clare must track down clues in some of New York's most secret places before an old vendetta starts producing fresh corpses. With recipes to die for, including how to make cold brew coffee at home!

Love this Series!
I love this series and have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this book. It was splendid. Rebecca Gibel is excellent. However, there is one small problem. The editing wasn't finished. The last 2 or 3 chapters had outtakes and comments that weren't part of the story. It was rather amusing and illustrated the skill of the narrator because you could clearly hear her step out of character and make a comment and then seamlessly slip back into character. It wasn't bad enough to ruin the story, but producers might want to revisit the book and finish the editorial process for other listeners.
