Do yourself a favor and get a copy for you and several for those on your Christmas list. I guarantee that if you enjoy great writing, terrific characters and a good mystery you will not be disappointed.
The stakes are high in this book, the crimes are realistic, and the careful research will leave you with plenty of notes on the IT world, details of the life of a bomb, and the pursuit of perfect coffee beans.
Weaving in and out of the plot is a strong thread of Clare’s maternal strength. I know I keep saying the most recent one is my favorite, but it’s true. Each release has character growth, new scenarios, new things to learn about coffee, and more devious planting of clues for this reader to figure out before the last chapter. But I didn’t see this one coming. Flipping back through the pages and re-reading where I clearly had been led astray through the author’s devious red herrings, I thought “Oh so clever Cleo Coyle you got me this time.”
I like these people and I care what happens, how they extricate themselves from situations, and how they grow after each book. This is a great read, perfect for the cozy genre audience, and not only will you adore the characters, you’ll love Cleo Coyle all over again for bringing these people into your home and giving you an evening of pure reading pleasure. Enjoy the caffeinated adventure!
Eric Thorner is a tech whiz billionaire who wants the best, including the best coffee. He's used to getting his way, and he wants Clare's coffee expertise--as well as her body. When he almost dies in an explosion outside her coffee shop, he tries to sweep her off her feet and makes her an offer that neither she nor her ex-husband and current business partner Matteo (Matt) Allegro can refuse. Together the three travel the globe, which is a new twist for this series; usually we only hear about Matt's coffee sourcing exploits when he's returned. While one of the things I love best about this series is its New York-centered view and tidbits of history about the city, it was fascinating to see Clare get out of her familiar settings and to learn about how coffee affects people in various locations.
There's always been a nod to the old-fashioned way of doing things in this series, even though it's firmly set in modern times. From Matt's mother's elegance to the Village Blend's sense of artistic and Big Apple history, Clare's family and business have never been about doing things faster and speedier. So the fun technological prowess of Thorner and his company, from bathroom holograms to very smart phones to the seemingly omniscient Miss House, who gives Clare directions and seems to have eyes everywhere, is a treat.
This is one of the most tightly plotted series I've read. I do recommend reading them in order, though technically you don't have to. There are so many little clues and red herrings and references here that make this book both a page-turning mystery and simply a fun read. Even after you're done with the whodunnit, there are recipes galore, including skillet lasagna, which also give a bit of backstory to the characters and when/why they've made each recipe. Coyle adds depth to all the ongoing relationships in the series, romantic and familial--the sideline about Joy's restaurant job in France and the unexpected opportunity to cook for fancy billionaires is a delight--and lets Clare's smarts shine through while never making anything easy to guess. Enjoy this with your favorite cup of coffee, and be prepared to keep refilling it as you stay glued to the story.
The Billionaire Blend is a fast-paced, detailed look at the competitive specialized coffee business. The multi-layered plot keeps the action moving at top speed. There is never a dull moment as Clare jets around the world with her new friend, and her family and friends grow increasingly concerned for her welfare. This is one of the most intriguing story in the series and will have readers turning pages to see what happens next. There is plenty of action to keep the most avid fan fulfilled and looking forward to the next installment of this fabulous coffeehouse series.
