Estes Park is fired up by a new coffee shop and pottery studio bringing chocolate espresso pastries, fierce competitive spirits, and murder…

Winifred Page might feel apprehension as she steps into the Koffee Kiln—Carla Beaker’s new charming coffee shop and pottery studio—but her corgi sidekick, Watson, welcomes the idea of a new place for snacks. With Carla’s disdain for the Cozy Corgi Bookshop and Bakery, Fred fears the caffeine will come with a side of drama. What she finds is delicious chocolate espresso scones, decaf coffee… and a dead body.

As Fred and Watson fire up their investigative savvy, they face down one of Estes Park’s cold-hearted matriarchs. To solve a murder, Fred must confront her own insecurities as she navigates the tangled coils of obsessions, business deals, and betrayals.

(This culinary cozy mystery includes a recipe for a sinfully delicious chocolate espresso torte.)

It is Book 11 and I still cannot wait to read these fun mysteries…….You would think in a small town like Estes Park, Colorado the body count would be dwindling down the townsfolk by now with all the cloak and dagger stuff and murders..But this small circle of elder inhabitants have some really deep issues…..

It is wonderful to see the growth of our heroine/sleuth Winifred Page owner of the local Cozy Corgi Bookstore. Fred has come to town after a terrible divorce and friend’s betrayal and made it a life changing event with her corgi Watson. Our wonderful young woman is now sorta being asked by the local  police detective Susan for help rather than being banned previously. The body is found of a town elder in the back studio of the new Coffee Kiln shop…….

Aside from the murder, Winifred has finally accepted the love of Leo who has been her friend from the day she moved to town. Good things are happening in Estes Park…..Can’t wait for #12
