  47. I love your series, I started collecting them when they first came out and when we moved my box of books was raided by rodents :) they must have been hungry to read. Subsequently I got an ereader and over time hope to replace and keep up with favorite series. Thank you for this lovely giveaway this week - coffee is one of God's lovely gifts :)

  51. I'm new to reading this series but I went out to the book store to get a few more.I feel like I'm actually smelling the aromas of the coffee as I'm reading the book. Coffee and books are two of my favorite ways to pass the day. So it's nice to have them together in this series

  64. I'll have to get out my copy of Roast Mortem--that Osso Bucco looks wonderful. How did I miss it when I read the book? Really looked forward to Murder by Mocha. Reading it will be a treat I save for a long lazy day.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I got Mocha by Murder Tuesday on my Kindle and finished it in two days. I blame work for taking up my valuable reading time.

    Very nice story, I was kept guess till very near the end. A couple touched I really liked, but if I write here about them it might be a spoiler and that is not what I am going to do.

    Here is a coffee question: In an area with hard water, is using distilled water recommended? And I have always heard cold water should be used. True or False?

    Keep writing!
    Jim

    Love reading this series! Just ordered up the latest and greatest on my Nookcolor! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love the books! Right now, I'm trying to 'fill in the gaps' when I can. That cup is AWESOME! Keep writing you two, and I'll keep reading them! the problem is that I can read them faster than you can write them. Oh, by the way, Ordered "Roast Mortem" for our University Library's "Popular Literature Collection". It may amuse you to know that it was displayed right next to the Starbucks entrance!
