In Roast Mortem, Clare Cosi and her ex-mother-in-law visit Madame’s old friend who has some old photos and an antique coffee maker he wants her to have. The visit goes horribly wrong when a blast, Clare believes is a bomb, starts a fire in the caffè, trapping both Madame and her friend Enzo in the basement. Was it arson? Who would do this and why?
Roast Mortem is the last book out in the coffeehouse mystery series by author Cleo Coyle. Her next book Murder by Mocha isn’t due out until August of this year. I have really enjoyed this series. Each book is better than the last. I would read them in order, although you do not have to.
