When Krissy Hancock and her best friend Vicki decide to open a bookstore cafĂ© in their new town of Pine Hills, they decide to call it “Death by Coffee,” after Krissy’s father’s most famous mystery novel. Little do they know how well the name fits…
On their very first day of business, Brendon Lawyer huffily takes his coffee…to the grave. It seems he had a severe allergy to peanuts…but how could there have been nuts in his coffee? And who stole his emergency allergy medication?
Fortunately, Krissy’s love of puzzles and mysteries leads her not only to Officer Paul Dalton, but also to many of her new neighbors, who aren’t terribly upset that the book is closed on Brendon. But one of them is a killer, and Krissy needs to read between the lies if she wants to save her new store—and live to see how this story ends…

My review:  Death by Coffee by Alex Erickson


This is a good first book of Bookstore cafe Mysteries. It has characters that I like, some are so funny and others annoying, some good looking, just a good mix. I would come back again to see what is going to happen next in Pine Hills.

There is a lot of humor in the story, some romance, plenty of suspects and it keeps you guessing on who the murder is.

 Krissy and Vicki are new to town.  They came to open a bookstore and coffee shop.  The town doesn't have one. Vicki has the bookstore and Krissy will run the cafe part.

Vicki's parents want her to be a actress especially on tv.  She does not want to work as a actress.  It was her idea to get Vicki and together open their store.

Krissy's father used to write mysteries and loaned them the money to open their store. Is most famous mystery was Death by Coffee so they named their store that.  They did not expect on the first day that someone would die after being in their shop from the coffee.

Business was slow to begin with and with the death it isn't get to much better.  Krissy loves puzzles and mysteries.  She is determined to really find out what happen and clear her shop.  She thinks it was murder not accidental.

It was fun to read what Krissy was up too next.  There cats are a bunch of trouble too.  This is a light cozy read and I can't wait for the next one.

I was given this ebook from Net Galley and Kensington and in return agreed to give a honest review of Death by Coffee.
