Book Number 4 in the Coffeehouse Series.
“A bright new light in the mystery horizon,”(The Best Reviews) Cleo Coyle returns with a mystery full of fraud, fun, and froth. New Yorker Clare Cosi manages a coffee shop, but this summer she’ll leave it behind as she heads for the Hamptons-and perhaps the biggest jolt of her life… Clare Cosi’s new friend, millionaire David Mintzer, has an offer no New York barista could turn down: an all-expenses-paid summer away from the sticky city. At his Hamptons mansion, she’ll relax, soak up the sun, and, oh yes, train the staff of his new restaurant.
So Clare packs up her daughter, her former mother-in-law, and her special recipe for iced coffee-for what she hopes will be one de-latte-ful summer… Soon, Clare tends the coffee bar at her first Hamptons gala.

What she finds will keep her up at night-and it’s not the java jitters…”
