Once Upon a Grind
Once Upon a Grind is the 14th installment to Celo Coyle’s Coffeehouse Mystery series. Clare Cosi is a coffeehouse manager who is drawn into a series of insidious adventures during a Fairy Tale Fall event in New York when Prince Charming is mysteriously sickened and the Pink Princess is turned into a Sleeping Beauty. An unsolved murder during the Cold War is somehow linked to a present-day murder and attempted murder. Clare soon becomes embroiled in a quandary of espionage as she works to clear international coffee hunter, and ex-husband, Matt Allegro, who is framed for murder and attempted murder.
Though part of a continuing series, this book is an excellent stand-alone read, as are its predecessors. Cleo Coyle’s characters are down-to-earth and lovable.
