Holiday time is party time in New York City, but after a sparkling winter bash ends with a murder, Village Blend coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi vows to put the killer on ice

At the Great New York Cookie Swap, pastry chefs bake up their very best for charity. Clare is in charge of the beverage service, and her famous Fa-la-la-la Lattes make the gathering even merrier. But her high spirits come crashing down to earth, when she discovers the battered body of a hard-working baker's assistant.

Police suspect a serial attacker whose escalating crimes have become known as "The Christmas Stalkings." Clare's boyfriend, NYPD detective Mike Quinn, finds reason to believe even more sinister forces are involved. Clare isn't so sure-and when she finds a second bludgeoned baker, she becomes a target. Now Clare is spending the holiday season pouring over clues, and she's not going to rest until justice is served.

Includes holiday and cookie recipes!

These are fun and complex mysteries. There were some good red herrings that kept me unsure of the killer pretty much until the end. This is a good series. As IrishMoon wrote, do start with the first book as each book builds on previous ones.

I could hardly wait for Cleo Coyle’s most recent addition to her Coffee House Mystery series and I was not in the least bit disappointed. This one is full of twists and turns and I was left guessing until the very end…wonderful! I was originally led to this series by an Amazon reviewer, when researching another author and have read them all. Every book gets better and better. All the books contain mouthwatering recipes and with each book, she has added more and more non-coffee recipes, which is great for me, the avid tea connoisseur. Although each book stands on its own, if you are new to this series I suggest that you start with the 1st book, “On What Grounds”. And if you enjoy extremely well written ghost mysteries, I suggest you also check out her Haunted Bookstore Mystery series, written under the pen name, Alice Kimberly; starting with “The Ghost and Mrs. McClure”.
