BILLIONAIRE BLEND is the thirteenth book in the Coffeehouse Mystery series by Cleo Coyle and it’s easily one of my favorites in the series because of the premise of it. When Clare Cosi saves the life of a billionaire, the guy repays her by gifting her a priceless espresso machine. But that’s not all, he also hires her to create the world’s most expensive coffee blend.

Coffee is what Clare does so the task is both daunting and exciting for her. However, it seems that there is also more that’s going on that she doesn’t know about. As she travels to get to know his world, this is the first time we actually get to see Clare a little outside of her natural habitat and the Village Blend. It’s a nice change and that’s why I really liked this book. With this series, each book is so different than the other and I really think that’s hard to do with the same set of characters so for this one to really step outside of the box must’ve been a challenge for the authors. I truly appreciate their efforts and can see that they had some fun with this book.

There’s quite a lot of charm in this book so if you’re in the mood for a fast-paced read with a bucket load of wit and charisma, then this one is for you. BILLIONAIRE BLEND definitely gets two thumbs up from me!

Thanks for the rec Annie


I do like when authors write their characters in different settings especially in cozies…I get used to them being in one place, that it’s a nice change of pace

Exactly and since this is the coffeehouse mysteries series it obviously takes place in the Village Blend a lot but this was really nice to read too!
