Can You Start in the Middle?
This is book seventeen in the series, so as you can imagine, Clare has been through her share of living in past books. However, you can jump into this book and enjoy the mystery. You just may not have complete context on all the character relationships.

Marie’s Thoughts

This is a fun series. There is something about it that is just classy. It is a coffee version of Laura Child’s Tea Shop Mystery Series for me. The writing is conversational and flows easily. I love all the recipes that are included and the author has a great website to accompany the series.
