Title: Murder Most Frothy
Author: Cleo Coyle
Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime
Format: Paperback  ( 247 p.) Personal Purchase


Clare Cosi’s new friend, millionaire David Mintzer, has an offer no New York barista could turn down: an all-expenses-paid summer away from the sticky city. At his Hamptons mansion, she’ll relax, soak up the sun, and, oh yes, train the staff of his new restaurant. So Clare packs up her daughter, her former mother-in-law, and her special recipe for iced coffee—for what she hopes will be one de-latte-ful summer…Soon, Clare tends the coffee bar at her first Hamptons gala. But the festivities come to a bitter end when an employee turns up dead in David’s bathroom—a botched attempt on the millionaire’s life. Thanks to the Fourth of July fireworks no one heard any gunshots, and the police are stuck in holiday traffic. Concerned for everyone’s safety, Clare begins to investigate. What she finds will keep her up at night—and it’s not the java jitters....

My Thoughts:

This book brings Clare, Joy, and Madame to the Hamptons for a summer away from the city, where they are assisting a friend of Clare's help teach his staff how to run a coffee shop.  What Clare didn't count on was someone trying to murder her friend David.  Who wants him out of the way and why?

Clare also didn't count on dealing with Joy and Madame and their summer flings.  Joy is still on the hot seat after her recent bust by her mother.  As Clare digs deeper into the life at the Hampton's the pressure is on to figure out what is going on and who has the most to lose?

I love this series it's like going back and seeing friends and finding out what they are up to now.  This one didn't disappoint in the least.
