Once Upon a Grind by Cleo Coyle

Coffee, mysteries, fairy tales? Come on, if you know me then you I paying attention at coffee, dawn in at mysteries, and hooked by fairy tale! I am so excited to tell you about the fourteen part of the Coffeehouse Mystery series by Cleo Coyle, Once Upon a Grind.

From the back of the book:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Billionaire Blend—a mystery with a sleeping beauty that is “so much fun to read.”

It’s Fairy Tale Week in New York City, and Clare Cosi has given her coffee truck a “Jack and the Beanstalk” makeover for the Central Park festival. Her ex-husband has contributed a bag of African coffee beans with alleged magical properties, and his octogenarian mother is giving out readings of the grinds. But Clare remains skeptical—until she receives a vision that helps her find a young model’s body in the park’s woods.

The police dismiss “sleeping beauty” as the victim of a drug overdose. But when Clare uncovers evidence that points to murder, she winds up with a dangerous predator on her heels and an investigation that leads right back to her own NYPD detective boyfriend. If she doesn’t solve this mystery fast, those magic beans predict an unhappy ending.

My thoughts:

This is the kind of story that makes you run back to part one and devour the rest just so can spend more time reading the clan crisp style. I adored the sharp fun story and totally engaging characters. Boris was too much in that good way. 

The story was full of the twists and turns I love, and it even had some heart racing action to keep you on yours toes. I love when all the ingredients gel like they did here. Even though these are freestanding parts in this series I really want to go back and see how these characters grew to be the awesome people they are now. 

Bravo, grab your copy today, its just to much fun to miss out on.
