Clare Cosi finds herself embroiled in yet another murder in this, the 10th book in the Coffeehouse Mysteries. Clare gets a call from her ex mother in law to come to a hotel and help with a sticky situation. The situation turns out to be a dead body, which subsequently disappears when the police arrive. The supposed murderer is Alicia, a woman that Clare is working with on an aphrodisiac coffee using beans from the Village Blend. The Magic Mocha coffee has an interesting effect on several characters in the book and the company distributing it, Aphrodite’s Village, is central to the murder and mayhem in this book. Aphrodite’s Village is quite the little hotbed of
intrigue and backstabbing as Clare learns to her dismay.
