Roast Mortem by Cleo Coyle
This book tour and review wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for Crazy Blog Tour (http://crazybooktours.blogspotcom) I love Cleo Coyle's Coffee House Mysteries and this one does not fail the reader! I really think this is her best coffee house mystery yet.
Here is a review from amazon.com:
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. But matters really heat up when somebody is torching cafes around the city and firefighters begin to die in suspicious ways...
Believing the two events are related, Clare investigates, staking out a five-borough bake sale and sniffing out clues in the pizza ovens of Brooklyn. When her detective boyfriend, Mike Quinn, is pulled into the fire of a false accusation, Clare is desperate to put out the flames. But will she be able to come to Mike's rescue before someone tries to extinguish her?
