Audio Book Review of Espresso Shot by Cleo Coyle read by Rebecca Gibble

Espresso Shot (Coffeehouse Mystery, #7)
Espresso Shot by Cleo Coyle
Read by Rebecca Gibble

From Good
 Manager and head barista of the bustling New York coffeehouse The Village Blend, Clare Cosi�s been hired to create a gourmet coffee and dessert bar for a swanky wedding. Clare should be thrilled at this chance to shine, but it�s Matteo Allegro, her ex-husband and current business partner, who�s tying the knot�to Trend magazine editor Breanne Summour, who�s in full-blown bridezilla mode. Claire�s got to put her misgivings aside and focus on business, but since she�s a successful amateur sleuth, murder is Clare�s business, too. And when fatal accidents begin befalling people close to Breanne, Clare becomes suspicious. But what she unveils, amid melted chocolate and steaming mochaccinos, may just get her burned...
My Take:  I enjoyed this earlier installment of The Coffee House Mysteries alot better than the first one that I listened to.  I enjoyed seeing the relationship between Clare and her ex-husband mature and how she took on the task of protecting Breanne even though Clare really couldn't stand her.  I enjoyed trying to figure out who was after Breanne and I was secretly hoping that Breanne got what she deserved.  I enjoyed seeing how Clare would follow the leads but each one just left her more confused than before.  Again there was a bit more language and sexual activity than I usually like in my cozy mysteries.  I did not figure out who did until they figured it out in the book.  

The same narrator read this book that read the other installment that I listened to.  Again I thought Rebecca Gibble did a good job on everyone's voices except when she was Clare or just reading and again I thought she was a bit to ernest during these parts but they didn't seem as distracting as the last time. 

I received a review copy from the publisher Audiogo as part of the Solid Gold Reviewer program at  I was not required to write a positive review.
