From the New York Times best-selling author of Once Upon a Grind comes an exciting new installment in the Coffeehouse Mystery series.
Clare’s visit to the nation’s capital is off to a graceful start. Her octogenarian employer is bunking with her in a charming Georgetown mansion, and a Smithsonian curator invites her to work on its culinary salute to coffee in America.
Clare’s new village blend, called DC, is struggling to earn a profit until it attracts a high-profile fan: the college-age daughter of the president. Clare’s stock rises as the first lady befriends her, but she soon learns a stark lesson. Washington can be murder.
First she finds a dead body in a back booth. Then the president’s daughter goes missing. Is she a runaway bride, or is something more sinister in play? After another deadly twist, Clare is on the run with her NYPD detective boyfriend. Branded an enemy of the state, she must piece together clues and uncover the truth before her life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness come to a bitter end.
