    One thought on “Roast Mortem”

    1. This was the first book I tried in audiobook for this series and I have to start off by saying that it’s amazing in audio. Since this series is set in New York, the characters have that distinct accent but the Cosi clan are also Italian, etc so there’s quite a lot of really distinct accents in this book and the narrator absolutely kills them all. Upbeat and fast-paced, this audio kicked ass.Out of all the books that I’ve read so far in this series, ROAST MORTEM has to be my favorite. This [...]

    2. I have enjoyed every one of Coyle's Coffee House series but not this one. The main character, Clare Cosi (a master at coffee blending,managing an independent coffee house, gourmet cook,etc.) is dashing all over New York City finding an arsonist in one case for the Fire Dept a murderer in two cases for the police, and oh, yes, solving a drug case for the DEA plus solving a major problem between her boyfriend and his long estranged cousin, getting her artist employer a major commission and recogni [...]

    4. “Cold here in the alley, but things will get hotter soon…”I really love this series. I’ve never liked coffee but this series has taught me so much that I have started to expand my tastes. I had been putting off reading this book as it hit a bit close to home for me. We survived a house fire two years ago. Someone was watching over us as normally we would have been sound asleep and the results may have been completely different. With that being said, I was hesitant to read Roast Mortem as [...]

    5. A 3.5.This mystery was actually a little confusing and I didn't figure out who had done it until maybe 40 or so pages away from the end. I was more into the relationship between the Quinn's and the progression of the relationship between Clare and Mike.Matt was a sweet guy in this book and I have to wonder why he's married to Breanne. I can't stand that woman!I dig Sgt. Franco and hope to see him again, he would be give Matt a run for his money if Joy ever comes back ;)Good use of memories and t [...]

    6. Every time I read a Coffeehouse Mystery, I ask myself if I am reading a cozy mystery or a textbook on Coffee 101. With the many ways that an espresso can be prepared to the beans and the roasting, to coffee history and coffee grinding, I am beginning to wonder what the true point to these books are.Clare is the manager of the Village Blend, she and her ex-husband Mateo have been left the day in and day out running of the business by Madam, her ex-mother-in-law and dear friend. One afternoon they [...]

    7. I do enjoy reading the Coffee House Mysteries. I find the characters well developed and the plots intriguing. Unlike some female sleuths, Clare Cosi has not fallen into, or as at least pulled herself away from, the whole "I'm going to do it because I was told not to" syndrome. While Clare ends up in situations that she promised her boyfriend Mike she would not get involved, she didn't get there intentionally. It's refreshing quite truthfully.In this latest edition in the series, an arsonist is b [...]

    8. It may be time for me to give this series a break. I've really enjoyed it, but I began to feel as if the coffee accessories industry was sponsoring this book. A lecture on not using "cheap blade grinders"! And all the details on how a proper espresso pull happens and how machines need to be set up? I'm not THAT into coffee! I'm finding myself less interested in the characters. There was a lot of good information about firefighting, but the author admits in the end that she made some of it up (of [...]

    9. Bad enough, on multiple levels, that I am ending my reading of the series.Sample of problems, in no particular order--Dear Lord, it is ONLY coffee! Don't be such a frickin' snob.Derivative plot (if I tell you what it is derivative of, you would immediately know all there is to know about the book--or at least what is worth knowing).Groping, mauling, attempted rape--it is not "okay" if he is your boyfriend's cousin and "was drunk" when it happened. I all but screamed during that and then when the [...]

    10. A great fun, fast read. I loved how the author combined the fire and police department in this book and I loved the tension that was built between Mike and Clare. Overall a quick, wonderful read.

    11. WARNING this more like a Ranterview and contains some spoilers.Claire Cossi is at it again! Save me please.Claire becomes Super Barista in this installment of the Coffee House Mysteries.Somebody is burning down cafes around the boroughs and obviously only Claire can solve the case. Not the Arson investigator, not the NYPD, but Super Claire. Things get hot when fire fighters start to die. Not only is one of the almost murder victims Fire Captain Michael Quinn but his own cousin Detective Mike Qui [...]

    12. I have grown to love this series to where it has become one of my top five series of must read when the books come out. Cleo Coyle knows how to make the characters intriguing, fun, witty, and most importantly, likeable. This is the ninth book in the coffeehouse mystery series, and each one gets better and better. Clare Cosi operates a little coffee house, Village Blend, along with her ex-husband Matt and his mother Madam. When Madam asks Clare to drive her to an old friend, Enzo’s restaurant w [...]

    13. Title: Roast Mortem (Coffeehouse Mystery #9)Author: Cleo CoylePages: 316Publisher: Penguin GroupISBN: 9780425234594Synopsis (from ): After local firefighters pull Clare out of a blazing café, she happily comes to their rescue by teaching them the finer points of operating their newly donated espresso machine.

    14. Cleo Coyle pays tribute to the FDNY in this latest book in her best-selling Coffee House Mystery series. Roast Mortem takes Clare Cosi from Greenwich Village to Queens and Brooklyn in search of an arsonist who is torching coffee houses, and The Village Blend could be next if she doesn't find the culprit. Clare doesn't believe the theory held by law enforcement that the arsonist is an eco-terrorist making a statement against coffee production, instead, she thinks that the culprit lives closer to [...]

    15. The descriptives are heavy handed, Yes, it's good to give me details but but they are quite repetitive. I am big on vocabulary, but where it is warranted. There is no need to pull out the big words for all the text. Characters are more believable if they have their own dialogue style.Lots of dramatization in the audio - different accents and voice quirks to go with each character. Very well doneper specific coffee words"fluffy crumpet colored curls" is an odd turn of phrase, and "plum-glossed li [...]

    16. I picked this up in the library because I thought I'd enjoy a light-hearted mystery about New York City and coffee. I'm sure I read the first few pages when I looked at it, since that's my pattern, but I must have been in a caffeine fog. I found the first ten pages tedious and the typeface a bit too ornate for a relaxing read, and luckily I've learned that I'm allowed to abandon ship when I feel like it. Not planning to revisit this one but not giving it a star rating of any kind since I didn't [...]

    17. Is there a Coffeehouse mystery that I do not like? No. This is a resounding 'no.' The current book is as fulfilling as the first one was. We have serial cafe fires, we learn alot about firefighting, we have a senseless murder and off we go.I enjoyed the interplay of characters and the dialog was crisp and only makes me eager for the next book.Go and read this book with a fine cup of coffee next to you. Oh, I tried a couple of the recipes and they are excellent!

    18. Another parting of a dear old friend-we have caught up on the latest and come to the end of this adventure. New characters introduced, old characters revived. I can now move to the next installment of this cozy mystery. I will sadly miss these characters should the author decide to end this series. Well worth the read-this was book #9. Books can be read individually, but they come together nicely in a series. 3 stars

    19. Another easy to read mystery in which coffee shop manager Clare Cosi gets tangled up and nearly over her head in crime. In this case, she goes with her former mother-in-law to a friend's coffee shop where an incendiary device goes off, trapping the friend and her mother-in-law and knocking out one of Clare's employees. They are quickly saved by firefighters from Ladder Company 189 but soon hear about another coffee shop and Clare, because of her nosiness, gets a threatening letter.Then a fireman [...]

    20. In this coffeehouse mystery installment, Claire and Madame are visiting an old friend of hers at his coffeehouse. While Madame and the friend are in the basement visiting, Clair and her barista are at the door of the café when a bomb goes off. Claire meets the local firefighters as they rush to save Madame and her friend. At the same time, there is another fire set at another coffeehouse. Shortly after, there is another, and there seems to be a person targeting coffeehouses. During the initial [...]

    21. Claire Cossi, barista by day, sleuth by night.

As a favor to the men, she visits their firehouse kitchen to teach them the finer points of operating their newly donated espresso machine. But more than their coffee turns out to be hot. Somebody's torching cafes around the city, and firefighters are beginning to die in suspicious waysBelieving the two events are related, Clare investigates, staking out a five-borough bake [...]

    23. Clare Cosi gets caught in a caffe with Madame when a bomb goes off. Luckily, they all come out relatively unscathed. But when another coffee shop gets bombed and Clare gets a threatening note at the Blend, she dives right in to investigator mode. As an amateur sleuth, she's, well, amateur, but at least Mike Quinn explains why he's so likely to put up with her investigations. When he gets himself arrested as a suspect, Clare is even more motivated to solve what could be several seemingly overlapp [...]

    24. I enjoy these coffee house mysteries featuring Clair Cosi. This installment spent more time talking about baking then coffee making in this story but that was fascinating too. An arsonist seems to be targeting coffee houses in the city so there is the fascinating element of firefighting, fun firefighter characters, and the character development of Clair's significant other whose whole family are firefighters, except for him. Just why did he become a policeman instead of following the family trad [...]

    25. Someone is setting coffeehouses ablaze in New York. When Clare and Madam are caught inside a friend's cafe as it catches fire, only Clare realizes it wasn't an accident. She knows it was arson and once the firefighters of Ladder Company 189 save them, she vows to find out who set the blaze. But, when the Blend and Clare herself become a target, she gets more than she bargained for. And, when Mike's firefighter cousin makes a pass a Clare, trouble follows and Quinn is brought up on a false accusa [...]

    26. There is an arsonist on the loose. This arsonist is targeting coffee houses.Claire was in one of the coffee houses when it was hit. She and her former mother-in-law were visiting a former friend.It's up to Claire to determine who the arsonist is before they hit the Village Blend.I really enjoyed listening to this book on tape. The NY Fire Department is part of the story. It took place almost 7.5 years after 9/11 so there is still some hurt and pain from losing their own on 9/11.
