Brewed Awakening by Cleo Coyle – Blog Tour and Giveaway

Synopsis:

From Cleo Coyle, the New York Times bestselling 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 she’s been missing for the past week, or that her friends and family have been frantic with worry. Now that she’s back, everyone is overjoyed, including a handsome NYPD detective who claims to be her fiancΓ©. But to Mike Quinn’s crushing distress, Clare doesn’t remember him, or much of anything about the last decade of her life.

Clare’s missing memory is tied to a crime she witnessed. An acquaintance of Clare’s 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 Clare’s memory. Soon authorities grow suspicious. Is Clare really a victim? Or 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.

I always get excited to read a new Coffeehouse Mystery from Cleo Coyle. By taking away Clare’s memory of the last several years (including memories of her time with her fiancee), Brewed Awakening takes the characters to places and situations we could never otherwise see them in.

It was so much fun watching as Clare slowly regained her sense of self and rediscover her feelings for Mike Quinn. The tension was always high since she had to trust a man she couldn’t remember to help her out of the mess she was in. This may be one of my favorite Clare Cosi mysteries so far.

As always the characters are well written, unique, and totally believable. The coffee always sounds wonderful and there are some great sounding recipes in the back of the book. You don’t even have to have read the previous 17 books in the series to enjoy Brewed Awakening. And now to wait for the next book in the series…. πŸ™‚
