Strong never disappoints me with her stories. Her contemporary novels and novellas always have plenty of charm, wit, mystery, fun and camaraderie between the characters.
A Cuppa Trouble is the second book in Strong's CafFUNated Mysteries and as ridiculous as Marissa is (she is a big-time klutz!), I couldn’t help shaking my head and chuckling at some of the crazy predicaments this girl gets herself into. And Connor, her boyfriend, is a saint. He’s steady (literally for her at times…haha), dependable, not without his tiny flaws but such a great partner for her that I adore him more with each book.
Tandy just gets better and better to me. Her character development is coming along nicely and she’s becoming my favorite. Greg, her new love interest, is rock solid and a nice man. It’s good to read a book where the guy is not some reformed rogue with a horrid past. At least, that’s not what Greg is yet. ;-)
The story, while it is a cozy mystery (it’s good and a bit predictable), is really more about Marissa and Tandy and their relationship. They discover a few things about each other in this book that reveals their inner insecurities and helps deepen their bond of friendship. Overall, I really liked this second offering and look forward to reading the next book.
I received a digital copy from the author. I was not required to write a review. No compensation has been received.
A Cuppa Trouble is a charming cozy mystery with characters that leap from the page like overzealous baristas. Readers will try to guess whodunnit and discover heartwarming lessons about friendship and love right along with Tandy and Marissa. I highly recommend this book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. All opinions are my own.
Tandy and Marissa are so different in personality that I love watching their friendship build. One of my favorite parts of this story is how Tandy and Marissa work to hide the fact that each has fallen in love with the others favorite drink. This leads to some silly hijinks all on their own.
Angela does an awesome job at keeping me guessing the identity of the killer, and I love the fact that she introducing the victim long enough so you care when they are killed, but not long enough that you feel cheated with the investment you've made into their existence, if that makes any sense at all.
I love the themes centering on the holidays and am looking forward to book 3, taking place on the Fourth of July. And I'm pretty sure I know what holiday will be focused on in book 4, but I'm not going to give it away!
I recommend these books for those who love clean cozy mysteries with quirky characters and crazy hijinks! (Yes, I've used hijinks, twice...um, three times in this review.)

Marissa hated the snow boots Conner gave her. After all, they were ugly. If only they were pink, they would have been much better! And of course, these practical yet undesirable boots ended up playing a significant role in this madcap adventure!
As the cars began disappearing, the mystery increased. Author Angela Ruth Strong mastered misdirection as the myriad of murder suspects multiplied. I enjoyed seeing each person and their potential motive and means.
I don’t often feel strongly that the first book of a series needs to be re-read before reading the ensuing stories, but I certainly wished I had read A Caffeine Conundrum more recently. I actually appreciated this as too many books try to retell the highlights of the previous story and waste too much time on it. In this case, I just didn’t remember some of the backstory and while it didn’t take away from my enjoyment, it did mean that I kept finding myself wondering what had happened.
I wasn’t as much a fan of Marissa and Tandy this time around. They struck me as immature, shallow, and insecure. Both were so afraid to admit that they liked the other’s beverage of choice and found ways to sneak it instead of confessing their newly discovered preference. Tandy went so far as to help Conner swap the tea Marissa gave him with coffee so he wouldn’t have to admit he didn’t like tea. There was another situation where Marissa found she liked something that was out of character for her and so she wasn’t willing to tell anyone.
Overall, A Cuppa Trouble is a fun story for anyone who enjoys reading sweet mysteries.
