This is the third book in the Coffehouse Mystery series set in New York City. Clare is hosting an event for a fashion designer who makes coffee themed jewelry at the coffeehouse during Fashion Week. When one of the guests is poisoned, suspicion is placed on her barista, especially when the police find out that the victim was a former boyfriend. However, the coffee was meant for the fashion designer, Lottie. Clare begins to investigate to try to clear Tucker and find out who the real killer is. There are many suspects including Lottie's current business partners and possibly the former founders of her company, not to mention a former lover. When another attempt is made on Lottie, Clare gets both her mother-in-law and her ex-husband to help her rule out some of the suspects. Adding to Clare's woes is her worries that her daughter may be running with a bad crowd that is into drug use. Her favorite detective appears briefly near the end of the book to help out, but is absent for most of the story. The mystery was pretty good, but I had my suspicions about the killer fairly early on. I was a bit annoyed that the storyline with her daughter Joy really wasn't resolved by the end of the book. Hopefully, this will be taken care of in the next book in the series.
