When Krissy Hancock and her best friend Vicki decide to open a bookstore café 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…

I loved Death by Coffee by Alex Erickson even though many readers were on the fence with this one. There’s just something about coffee and books (which are a prominent part of this series) that sucks me in! Anyway, I never wrote a formal review of this novel on goodreads so I can’t remember that much about the book (what you need to know about it can be read via the synopsis), but I wanted to add a mini review here anyway because I plan to read the other books in the series.
