“I think in terms of originality, this book is probably the standout star of the series.”
~ Under the Covers

With another book comes another theme and boy, does Cleo Coyle come up with something unique and creative every time. There’s no question that the Coffeehouse Mystery series is the series to beat when it comes to foodie mysteries. Cleo Coyle is always able to deliver a fast-paced story that takes you away and has your mind buzzing as you try to figure out the mystery before it’s revealed.

Each book in this series is highly engaging and I would recommend this to anyone who likes complex storylines and fun characters. There’s quite a lot going on in these books and that’s what I love about them.

For this particular book, we have a red, white and blue theme with the presence of the president’s daughter. I have never read a book like this already and when you throw in the jazz music and also the fact that it’s set in Washington as opposed to New York, it really brings new life to this series and since this is the 15th book in the series, sometimes a series needs that.

This book blew me away with its imagination and creativity. I think in terms of originality, this book is probably the standout star of the series. There are so many amazing secondary characters and I also liked the fact that there’s space for Mike to come in and be a part of everything. There’s no doubt that this series continues to get better with each book. I’m just surprised that Cleo Coyle is still able to come up with things that no one has ever done before!

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
