After everything Clare and Mike have been through, they deserve a little bit of happily ever after. So when Mike decides to put a ring on Clare's finger, Clare's eccentric octogenarian employer is there to help.
She donates the perfect coffee-colored diamonds to include in the setting and the name of a world-famous jeweler who happens to be an old family friend. But while the engagement is steeped in perfection, the celebration is not long lived.
First, a grim-faced attorney interrupts their party with a mysterious letter bequeathing a strange, hidden treasure to Clare's daughter. Next, the renowned jeweler who designed Clare's ring is found poisoned in his shop.
Both events appear to be connected to a cold case murder involving a sunken ship, an Italian curse, a suspiciously charming jewel thief, and a shocking family secret. With deadly trouble brewing, Clare must track down clues in some of New York's most secret places before an old vendetta starts producing fresh corpses.
I was in desperate need for a reading reset brain wise. I'd been reading a lot of the same genre of books for awhile and several of them all sounded nearly identical to the other and my reading pace was starting to lag so I could feel myself starting to burn out a little bit.
Dead Cold Brew was a great re-set for me. It was a great fresh read with an entirely new genre, new author, new story, new everything.
I really liked Dead Cold Brew. It wasn't highly exciting but its got a lot of layers with a lot of well developed story and it was fun.
I liked that this time around that the romance factor - although totally adorable and a decent focus in this book was sweet, it was passionate but it wasn't all sex and it wasn't all pornographic interaction. Its romantic love without the need for rubber sheets.
The whammy double layer mystery is great because it kept me guessing and wasn't easily guessed from the beginning which I really love. I highly highly love stories that can keep me guessing. I get so bummed when I can guess from the beginning who and what is bad and going on.
I really enjoyed Coyle's voice, her personality, I enjoyed her world and the cast that she has brought to life. Dead Cold Brew is fantastic and I really enjoyed it from beginning to end. From easy pace - to fresh face author loved it.
