This little book was fun to read.
The author has a wonderful way of mixing rich, descriptive language, intriguing situations and subtle humor in a way that is attractive and enjoyable. Like so many good works of fiction, especially mystery, I found it a challenge to halt my reading at the end of the chapter after the budgeted time for reading was exhausted, and so was I late at night.
Teddy Morelli, the principal character in this series, is someone who I would like to meet. She is bright, energetic, a bit mischievous, and comes across the most interesting characters from a wide range of life that one could imagine. In Coffee to Die For Teddy meets with drug-dealing Alaskan fisherman one minute, uptight university administrators the next, and always, always there is family.
The most attractive part of this book is the rich language describing the sights, sounds, smells and character of the Pacific Northwest in such a succinct and pleasant way. It certainly makes me want to visit there soon to experience what Linda French sees and lives.
As I think back to our childhood, growing up in Atlanta, Georgia, I can relate those experiences to the foundation of her writing skills.
I eagerly await the next installment in the Teddy Morelli series.

The lively plot and descriptions carried me through this book so quickly and pleasantly that I wasn't finished with the book when the story was over. I miss the characters. They, in the 350 pages, had become some of my best friends. I hope the author writes another soon because I am so lonely without Teddy and her entourage.

I have a soft spot for the Pacific Northwest so I was already inclined towards this story. It really evokes a sense of place. While the plotting and characterisations were somewhat two dimensional, this book still represents an undemanding and enjoyable quick read for a lazy afternoon.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am an ardent fan of Agatha Christie, Nevada Barr, and Lydia Adamson, and will now add Linda French to that list. This book's setting was believable and well-described, especially the woods scenes, eg. the maple bog. The protagonist was likable, but human, romantic element realistic. Being a Starbucks stockholder I appreciated the eliptic references to that company. The plot was terrific; I did NOT figure out whodunit...good surprise! I'm looking forward to more titles.

it really didn't go anywhere...and the one point that it did go somewhere, it didn't go very far.
