Happy Monday, Reader Friends!
I hope you had a blessed Easter.
To kick off this week, I’m sharing my thoughts on A Latte Difficulty by Angela Ruth Strong. It’s the third book in her cozy mysteries, CafFUNnated Mysteries.
About the Book
Can two baristas track down a gunman after the espresso shot heard ‘round the world?
When Marissa witnesses an attempted murder during the 4th of July parade, it starts a battle for her independence. She is forced to hide out in a safehouse, leaving her co-owner, Tandy, to run their coffee shop, track down the criminal, and, worse, plan Marissa’s wedding. Thankfully Tandy has help, but can she really trust the P.I. in a bow tie, her new deaf barista who acts more like a bartender, or a wedding planner who’s keeping secrets?
The threat on Marissa’s future goes from bad to worse when her bridal gown is covered in blood. Though her fiancé, Connor, agrees to give up his identity to join her in the Witness Protection Program, Marissa refuses to wave the white flag. Instead, she enlists Tandy to help her fight for truth, justice, and the Americano way.
A Latte Difficulty continues the fun with Marissa and Tandy, unlikely friends and business partners. Although this is a third book, it can be read as a standalone. I’d suggest for full enjoyment purposes, you check out books one and two first. 🙂
What I like about these mysteries is they’re sprinkled with humor, fun, and romance. Plus, you get to put on your sleuthing hat along with Marissa and Tandy to figure out who dunnit.
If you’ve never read Ms. Strong, now’s the time. If you’re a cozy mystery fan, then this book is for you.
