Clare can't help but get involved: her beloved Village Blend coffeehouse has been devastated by said bomb. The coffee lore is downplayed somewhat in this novel. The recent stories have given more emphasis on food and cooking - so you may not want to read these on an empty stomach!
The solutions are getting more fantastical as the series continues. This may bother you, or it may not. Just be aware you may be required to suspend belief a few times as the story winds down to its ending.
It all has to do with creating an exclusive coffee--Billiionaire Blend--with rare beans now almost unavailable, but it also has to do with corporate take-overs and murder. In her mind, Clare goes from suspect to suspect, most often landing on Eric Thorner, head of THORN, Inc., the boy billionaire who has declared his everlasting love for her, much to the dismay of her lover, Mike Quinn, and the amusement of ex-husband Matteo Allegro. Is Thorner the intended victim or the mastermind killer? Clare takes incredible risks to find out.
If you've read other books in the Coffee House Series, you know Clare, Matt and Mike, along with Madame (Matt's aristocratic mother) and Joy (Clare's daughter). A nicely tied-in sub-plot brings Joy back into the action. Mike Quinn is seen less in this volume, but we see a lot of Clare and Matteo.
Billionaire Blend is a good read, fast-paced, making you turn pages, but the billionaire's world and the world of high-tech apps, holographs and remarkable digital creations is hard to grasp. Does it really exist? Did Coyle research it? I bet so
This is a fast-paced read that you don’t want to put down as the pull of the action keeps you on your toes from one scene to the next. Cleo did a great job in keeping me in suspense with plenty of suspects and several twists and turns that were full of surprises. With a superb cast of characters, engaging conversations and a friendly and warm atmosphere, this has become one of my favorite books.
One of the best part in this wonderfully brewed and delightfully fantastic series is that I love seeing New York and her surroundings through Clare’s eyes.
Billionaire Blend is a good romp in the techie world and a great way to spend a few hours.
