Cleo Coyle Brews up Murder in Our Nation’s Capital {+ Giveaway}


This post contains affiliate links

Dead to the Last Drop by Cleo Coyle - Thoughts in Progress{Note: The winner of this awesome giveaway is Kelly Oster. Congratulations Kelly and thanks to everyone who dropped by during Cleo's visit.}
 
It’s with great pleasure that I welcome author Cleo Coyle back to Thoughts in Progress today to talk about her latest release DEAD TO THE LAST DROP, the 15th installment in her Coffeehouse Mystery series.

To celebrate the release, Cleo is offering an awesome giveaway to one lucky visitor to Thoughts. The giveaway includes an autographed copy of the new hardcover edition of DEAD TO THE LAST DROP; five autographed glossy recipe cards; a large, durable canvas Coffeehouse Mystery tote bag; and a pound of premium "Billionaire's Blend" coffee from One Good Woman Coffee and Tea Co., mentioned in the book's acknowledgment as part of the background research for our "one good woman"--amateur sleuth Clare Cosi. Please see the end of the post for more details on the giveaway.

Cleo joins us today to “Brew Up Murder in our Nation’s Capital”. Afterwards I’ll share my thoughts on this delightful book. Please join me in giving a warm welcome to Cleo. First, I have to say I’ve learned a lot from Clare through her 15 adventures. I now enjoy fresh ground coffee daily thanks to Clare, as well as knowing how to use my French Press and stove top espresso pot. Welcome, Cleo and thanks for sharing Clare and the gang with us readers.

First, we send our caffeinated thanks to Mason Canyon for her longtime support of our work. Mason has been reading and reviewing The Coffeehouse Mysteries since the beginning—long before Penguin moved us into hardcover or we hit the New York Times list. 

Our little coffee series that got bigger and bigger is still going strong. This year we’re celebrating over twelve years in print, and we’re here today to tell you about our latest entry.

The premise comes down to a question: How does a hardworking single mother and coffee shop manager go from befriending the First Lady and catering a glittering party at the Smithsonian, to being placed at the top of the FBI’s Most Wanted list? 

For our amateur sleuth, Clare Cosi, it begins when the President’s college-age daughter becomes a fan of her freshly roasted coffee, and a regular at Clare’s D.C. jazz club. Then the young woman mysteriously vanishes, a State Department employee collapses in the shop, and Clare is fit for a frame of kidnapping and homicide.

These capital crimes are the last thing she expects to be accused of when she relocates to our nation’s capital, but Clare must solve both mysteries—and discover who framed her—or she may discover firsthand…

Washington is murder. 

If you are new to our series, don’t hesitate to pick up DEAD TO THE LAST DROP. You can read it as a stand-alone, and if you like the ride, you have 14 more books to enjoy. But don’t miss this Washington story. It’s embedded with twists, turns, and hidden secrets about our nation’s capital that were inspired by my own experiences while living, studying, and working in D.C.

Cleo (Alice and Marc), thanks so much for visiting with us today and sharing this insight into Clare’s newest adventure. You always have such fascinating bits of information woven into these adventures. It’s a combination of fun reading and learning at the same time.

Now for my thoughts ………

When an author can make you feel the emotions of their characters, then they have truly captured your imagination.

Author Cleo Coyle does an excellent job of this in her Coffeehouse Mystery series. Her latest release, DEAD TO THE LAST DROP, is a prime example.

In this 15th entry of the series, the author takes protagonist Clare Cosi out of her New York coffeehouse and puts her in Washington D.C. Master roaster Clare has her hands full trying to get the new Village Blend, DC, shop up and running. Struggling to earn a profit, Clare tries to get her volatile chef to change his menu to no avail. The only peace she enjoys is from the coffeehouse’s second floor jazz club. But that’s short-lived when a jazz piano genius turns out to be the President’s daughter bringing problems of her own to the club.

When a State Department staff member bursts into the coffeehouse late one night and collapses, Clare’s troubles escalate. Clare’s boyfriend, NYPD Detective Mike Quinn, is on special assignment in DC for the Justice Department, but is dealing with problems of his own. His boss, Acting Director Katherina Lacey, has her sights set on him, but Mike’s interest in her has to do with proving she is corrupt.

When the President’s daughter goes missing and the State Department staffer dies, Clare finds herself a wanted woman by the FBI. On the run with Mike, Clare has to blend the elements together to discover who wants her behind bars or worse.

The author begins the story with an adrenaline rush and doesn’t let up until the end. Combining a historical setting with intrigue, Coyle infuses the story with a touch of romance, political intrigue and fascinating history. The mystery takes twists and turns to keep you guessing.

The characters are well-developed and extremely likable. Clare is a strong and determined protagonist with a soft side readers can relate to. The friendship and loyalty among the core group of characters gives depth to the story.

Readers don’t have to have a love of coffee to enjoy this series even though bits of coffee knowledge is woven throughout the story. Political conspiracy, fascinating characters, amazing settings and a murder mystery will hold you spellbound.

DEAD TO THE LAST DROP can be read on its own with new readers having no problems following the plot and characters. Returning fans will delight in the new directions of their favorite characters. In addition, there are recipes, tips, a jazz playlist, and an interesting list pertaining to Coffee and the Presidency to tantalize you.

Coyle keeps the story fresh and the intrigue high as she takes readers on a roller coaster ride through the streets of D.C. and surrounding area. With a glimpse inside the White House and a taste of jazz, the author blends her magic for another enthralling mystery.
