Cleo Coyle – Brewed Awakening


From Cleo Coyle, the New York Times best-selling author of Shot in the Dark and Dead Cold Brew, comes a delicious new entry in the “fun and gripping” (The Huffington Post) Coffeehouse Mysteries.

When coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi awakens on a bench in Washington Square Park, she has no idea shes been missing for the past week, or that her friends and family have been frantic with worry. Now that shes back, everyone is overjoyed, including a handsome NYPD detective who claims to be her fianc. But to Mike Quinns crushing distress, Clare doesnt remember him, or much of anything about the last decade of her life.

Clares missing memory is tied to a crime she witnessed. An acquaintance of Clares elegant employer – and fellow member of an exclusive Gotham circle known as “The Ladies Who Brunch” – invited Clare to her posh hotel to sample gourmet wedding cakes. The pair took a stroll after their indulgent tasting and, according to security camera footage, a masked figure snatched the hotel heiress at gunpoint with Clare looking on. Did the kidnapper take Clare, too? The camera went dark, just like Clares memory. Soon authorities grow suspicious. Is Clare really a victim? Or is she merely acting like one? Evidence is mounting that she set the woman up.

To clear her name, Clare must find a way to reclaim her memories and rescue the heiress before this high-stakes crime ends in tragedy. Otherwise, instead of walking down the aisle, Clare may find herself perp-walking to prison as an accomplice to kidnapping and murder.
