Who is "The Genius"?

This husband and wife team definitely writes one of the best cozy series going. The mystery is exciting and I learn more and more about coffee and New York with each continuing book. My favorite type of cozy! This is the second in the series and unlike some cozies, there is nothing repetitive or unnecessary within the story line.

There is someone calling themselves "The Genius" pushing women to their deaths, making it look like a suicide. Meanwhile, back at The Village Blend coffee shop, finding interesting and deserving men to date becomes a topic in the shop. Clare, store manager and divorced from the store's owner's son, Matteo, is trying to monitor her grown daughter's dating choices. In doing so, the store hosts a social gathering where men and women can meet and match themselves with potential dates. While checking out men for her daughter, Clare meets her own "Mr Right", but her policeman friend warns her that this man is a suspect in these recent murders. Clare believes he's not the murderer and sets out with Matteo to find the real murderer.

Suspense builds as we read the inner thoughts of "The Genius". Clare's relations continue with her divorced husband, cooking school student daughter, and meddling mother-in-law which is a fun story in itself. Clues point to a variety of people, with a shocking surprise in the end. Definitely will continue with this fun series!

Sit back and relax with a cup of coffee.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would and I have loaned my copies to friends and finally gave the entire hardback collection to my local library. I have read most of these in paper version so it is nice to see that Audible is finally beginning to carry some of this type of light reading. Coyle's coffee house series follows a standard format but she always makes me laugh and I have learned a lot about coffee. If you have to have a book that you want to analyze and rip apart for style, deep story content and technical correctness then please do not bother to select this book. But if you want a light enjoyable listen while you relax, knit, sew, garden, etc. pick one up Coyle's coffee house books sit back and enjoy.


Any additional comments?

Now, Audible, how about the Tea Shop Mysteries by Laura Childs? Drayton is a hoot and all the characters would be a wonderful challenge to a narrator.
