Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme that highlights books soon to be released, the ones we’re excited about but haven’t read yet. It’s hosted by Wishful Endings, and was formerly hosted by Breaking the Spine. Y’all can check out all of this week’s Can’t-Wait Wednesday posts here.
So what am I excited about this week?
Title: Bulletproof Barista
Series: Coffeehouse Mysteries #20
Author: Cleo Coyle
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Publication Date: November 14, 2023
Savor an all new Coffeehouse Mystery in the beloved long-running series from New York Times bestselling author Cleo Coyle.
Only Murders in Gotham , the smash hit streaming show, is famous for filming in authentic New York City locations and using real New Yorkers as extras. For their latest episode, they’ve chosen to spotlight the century-old Village Blend and its quirky crew of baristas.
But when the film crew’s week of shooting delivers an actual shooting, coffeehouse manager and master roaster Clare Cosi and her staff find themselves at the scene of a true crime.
“A wonderful series with plenty of local color, great characters, and a setting so real that readers will be scouring the streets of Greenwich Village looking for the real Village Blend.”—The Mystery Reader
“Clare and company are some of the most vibrant characters I’ve ever read.”— Mystery Scene
I am this excited about this book:
This is one of my most favorite mystery series ever. Cleo Coyle is on my list of must-read authors. I am holding out hope that we will see Clare and Mike get married at some point. I love the setting, the characters, the recipes, all of it.
Berkley, if this one is on NetGalley, please please please please please approve me for it! (But if you don’t, I’ll read it anyway.)
If you aren’t familiar with the goodness of the Coffeehouse Mysteries, grab the first one now and get to reading! You’ve got until November to get caught up.
