Hi, Edie. Cleo Coyle is the one who wrote the Coffeehouse Mystery series. Her titles are all great: On What Grounds, Through the Grinder, Latte Trouble, Murder Most Frothy, Decaffeinated Corpse and French Pressed. Clever since they are coffee-related.
Hmmm... My reading goal for 2009 would be to finish up two of my favorite series: Ruth Rendell's Inspector Wexford and the Inspector Henry Tibbet series by Patricia Moyes.
Unfortunately, this is a goal that I am sure I won't succeed in accomplishing... as long as some of my other favorite authors keep publishing new books... M. C. Beaton, Alexander McCall Smith, ETC. I can never resist new books by favorite authors!
I just went to the library and got: Carpe Demon by Julie Kenner, Candy Apple Dead and Peppermint Twisted by Sammi Carter, Killer Hair by Ellen Byerrum, The Diva Runs Out of Thyme by Krista Davis and Death Swatch by Laura Childs. I guess those would be my top for now!
