It was fun, it was captivatin, and for book 15 of the series, it was NOT boring.Somehow Clare moving to DC has opened up like a new chapter not only in Clare ’ s life but also in the series.

Her writing has become so familiar, it 's like coming home with each new book, and catching up with old friends.Clare and her employees are as spunky as ever.

Clare and Mike are as wonderful as ever and fear not long time lovers of the Coffeehouse mysteries because Coyle has found and clever way to enfold the old characters into the new book and new scene.

Make it on White House, they would ake the mystery to task.I would also like to mention that I writ his book while in the low end of major depression.

This wonderful rich story and the return to familiar characters made the lows a bit brighter.
