Clare and Matteo co-run the Village Coffee Shop in Manhattan. They also parent 20 something daughter, Joy. They have been divorced, friends, and bantering back and forth for six books now. Finally, in book seven, Matteo has become engaged to the less than kind and friendly editor, Breanne Summour, of the top fashion magazine, "Trend".
But Clare's detecting skills are called upon when someone seems to have decided that Breanne should not make it to the alter. After Matteo's bachelor party, the young Breanne look-alike dancer was shot and killed while walking along with Matteo and Clare. Convincing the snarky local policeman that Breanne was the actual target took lots of convincing. Clare's new love interest, NY Police Detective Mike, believes them, and suggests that Clare stick with Breanne and do some investigating herself.
This series just gets better and better with every installment. Every book tells a bit more about the coffee industry and places around Manhatten. The fashion world plays a big part in this book. Sometimes facts seem unnecessary and padding for cozies. In this series, they are a much valued interesting must have for telling a terrific mystery.

A disappointing mess of a story. Wedding woes galore. Unlikable main character (Breanne). Unlikely stupidity by the cops - flirting with a witness on a murder scene? Really? Actually the least enjoyable book so far in the series. And to top it off - more detailed descriptions of the food served than in any book I can recall. Coffeehouse mystery. Not really!
Stellar narration by Rebecca Gibel as usual though.
