    Wow! I had no idea Cleo Coyle had written so many coffeehouse novels. This list is at least twice as long as I expected. I found the coffee instructions in the first book annoying. The series did not make the best first impression.

    But you know what? Latte Trouble won me over. It wasn’t the mystery that did it for me but, rather, Cleo’s determination to infuse the plot with a strong coffee element. I think it changed the way I perceived the coffee lectures from the previous books because I finally understood what the author was going for.

    Speaking of authors, I just realized that Cleo Coyle is a pen name. I guess you learn something new every day.

    I don’t drink coffee but, surprisingly, can’t get enough of the Coffeehouse Mystery if the Village Blend was real,I’d be there every day!
