After the White House asks coffeehouse manager and master roaster Clare Cosi to consult on the coffee service for a Rose Garden Wedding, she discovers a historic pot was used as a CIA “dead drop” decades before. Now long-simmering secrets boil over, scalding Clare and the people around her…

Dead to the Last Drop by Cleo Coyle,  published December 1, 2015 by Berkley.
Book beginning, Prologue
He stomped the brake and glared at the BMW swerving into his lane. I could smash this  idiot's bumper, but it won't get me to her any faster.
Suppressing the urge to turn this SUV into a battering ram, he laid on the horn instead. It worked. The Beemer swung out of his path and he hit the gas, running the next two yellow lights.  
Page 56:
"Mike, why did you really come home early?"

This is a new series to me. I think it sounds great. This week I am spotlighting The Royal Ranger by John Flanagan and Once Shadows Fall by Robert Daniels. Happy reading!

I like that action filled beginning! I'd read more to find out why he's in such a rush.

I keep meaning to try a book from this series but every time I am at the library I forget to check for one. Happy Friday!

I can so sympathize with him in the beginning - I can't count the number of times I've been cut off or had mini-rage incidents in the car because of other drivers...lol...I need to start this series since I love coffee so much! Here's my Friday post

I just finished this one and really enjoyed it though it did make me want to have plates of muffins and brownies and lots of cups of coffee!
