Publisher's Summary

From Cleo Coyle, the New York Times best-selling author of Dead Cold Brew, comes a delicious new entry in the "fun and gripping" (The Huffington Post) Coffeehouse Mystery series 
A smartphone dating game turns the Village Blend into a hookup hot spot - until a gunshot turns the landmark coffeehouse into a crime scene. 
As Village Blend manager Clare Cosi fixes a date for her wedding, her ex-husband is making dates through smartphone swipes. Clare has mixed feelings about these matchups happening in her coffeehouse. Even her octogenarian employer is selecting suitors by screenshot! But business is booming, and Clare works hard to keep the espresso shots flowing. Then one night, another kind of shot leaves a dead body for her to find. 
The corpse is an entrepreneur who used dating apps with reckless abandon - breaking hearts along the way. The NYPD quickly arrests one of the heartbreaker's recent conquests. But the suspect's sister tearfully swears her sibling was framed. 
Clare not only finds reason to believe it, she fears the real killer will strike again. Now Clare is "swiping" through suspects in her own shop - with the help of her globetrotting ex-husband, a man who's spent his life hunting for coffee and women. Together they're determined to find justice before another shot rings out.

Another fantastic addition to The Coffeehouse Mystery Series

In this exciting and entertaining tale, we get to meet many of our old friends, like Tuck, Esther, Madame and Nancy as well as gain some new characters to love. Cleo Coyle and husband Marc Ceresari certainly know how to write the consummate Cozy mystery. We have the upcoming wedding of Claire and Mike, which readers have been eagerly awaiting, the continuing relationship between Joy and Franco and even some growth on the part of Matteo Allegero! I truly enjoy how this pair of writers manages to give us plenty of character development, and plot not related to the murder, but then ties everything together in the end. You feel as though you are visiting with friends you’ve known for years, but each book is a revelation of its own.

This particular book centers around an online dating app called “Cinder” and the owner’s involvement in the murder. Being of an older generation oI found Claire’s revulsion with the world of dating apps completely understandable, but also found the information given by the younger characters interesting. It certainly shows how the world has changed, especially the dating world. As the story progresses, a new street drug called “sticks”is introduced through an investigation Mike is working on. When the murders Claire is looking into become entangled with the drugs, it can have deadly consequences.

I have read every book in the series multiple times and can say that they get better with each book, which is rare with series that go on as long as this one has. The writing continues to be tight, the characters grow, but stay true to who they are, and you don’t find the laziness that creeps into so many series, especially as it entails the murders. So many books you pick up these days, you can tell whodunnit by page three, these keep you guessing until the end!

I recommend this book, and the entire series highly. My only complaint, was the narration. This is the very first book in this series that I have listened to, I have read all the others in book format, but this particular narrator has one female voice and one male voice, no differentiation for characters or ages. Her voice is fine and not irritating to listen to, her pace is okay, it just wasn’t a good performance. I will be buying the book to read myself so I can “hear”the characters the way they should be heard. I don’t think I would buy another book narrated by Ms. Gibel as I really didn’t care for her performance, but the book itself it wonderful.
