Sean and Sara McKinley are approached by a young woman who feels her mother was poisoned with cyanide-laced coffee. However there are no suspects and no motives. All the woman has is the remains of the bag of coffee beans her mother was making her coffee from. This sets the newly formed investigative firm into action to first of all discover if the deceased woman was poisoned and then to determine who did it. I enjoyed this fun cozy mystery with this loving married couple and their group of sidekicks.
It was fun to see them go undercover, working at jobs they weren't used to - particularly Sean who finds the smells from this job a little nauseating. Poor Sara has to admit to herself that she is somewhat addicted to caffeine as she can't give up her daily brew even though most places around town are likely selling the poisoned variety.
There were lots of twists and turns in this fast-paced who-dun-it mystery, but don't count your chickens before their hatched. You'd better make sure you've got all your facts straight before you arrest someone or you'll be letting the killer get away. Coffee is Murder will have you guessing who the real killer is right up until the very end.
I love the characters of Sean and Sara. It is obvious that they love each other a lot but the novel is a clean romance with clean language, making it a pleasurable relaxing read for those who would rather read books free of that kind of thing. They work well together and seem fairly realistic. I like the way they make use of their resources - unselfishly, for the good of others and enjoy working with their staff - Jimmy, Helen and Adam. I also appreciate the interaction between the staff and look forward to seeing their character development in other novels in this series.
And, oh yes, what should they name the new P.I. firm?
This cozy mystery was a fun read that those who enjoy this genre will enjoy. I gave this book 4 stars out of 5.

I loved this one even more than the last one! Honestly, I think it was the coffee connection!
"For Sara, coffee was one of life’s greatest—and simplest—pleasures. Every time she took a draw of freshly brewed java, her eyelids automatically lowered in appreciation of the robust flavor. Somehow, when drinking it, life seemed less complicated, or maybe it was just how it coated the palate and calmed her nerves despite what some scientific studies might say.
She was in her home office, seated behind her desk, staring at the blinking cursor on her monitor, but it wasn’t because she had writer’s block. Her wrists needed a break. Better yet, she needed to indulge in this cup.
Leaning back in her chair, she swiveled from side to side and closed her eyes, savoring the aroma of the dark beans. While they were ground at the time she pressed the button, the only way to get it any fresher was picking the beans off the plants in Brazil. With their money, she supposed it was an option." ~ This is the way I feel every time I drink a good cup of coffee! LOL
This was a very fun read. I loved it right from the beginning. I thought it was great how they went under cover in a coffee bean company. The little coffee tidbits and facts throughout the book were great! Another thing that connected me to this series is that its based in Albany NY and I am from Upstate NY! So I know all the places she talks about.
Once again a great little mystery. A quick read at only 174 pages, can easily be read in only one sitting, or two.
I would not hesitate one minute to read more from this author! These were so much fun and I loved the characters - great character development.
