ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: A Cuppa Trouble
Series: The CafFUNated Mysteries #2
Author: Angela Ruth Strong
Publisher: Mountain Brook Ink
Release Date: July 1, 2019
Genre: Inspirational Cozy Mystery
Can a couple of baristas chase down a car thief without spilling a drop of their favorite drinks?
Plans for a Valentine’s Day grand opening of a small town coffee shop go awry when the first customer is killed. Evidence points toward the victim being mixed up in a car theft ring, but shop owners Tandy and Marissa have reason to believe he was framed.
An assortment of suspects–from a pink-haired heir to Tandy’s charming ex–all seem to know a little too much about grand theft auto.
Without approval from either their boyfriends or the gum-chewing FBI agent in charge, the shop owners go on stakeouts, plan stings, and pursue justice in a high-speed car chase. If they don’t find the killer soon, it might be more than their love lives in trouble.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Angela Ruth Strong sold her first Christian romance novel in 2009 then quit writing romance when her husband left her. Ten years later, God has shown her the true meaning of love, and there’s nothing else she’d rather write about.
Her books have since earned TOP PICK in Romantic Times, been optioned for film, won the Cascade Award, and been Amazon best-sellers. She also writes non-fiction for SpiritLed Woman. To help aspiring authors, she started IDAhope Writers where she lives in Idaho, and she teaches as an expert online at WRITE THAT BOOK.
Let me start with a disclaimer: I didn’t read A Caffeine Conundrum (the first book in the series). I know, I know. All of you who are shaking your heads at me right now have the right to do so but there are only so many hours in a day and even more books!
With that said, it took me a little while to get these two main characters straight in my head (but not so long a while that it became annoying). I’m sure part of that was because I was picturing their personalities opposite of how the author wrote them. These are two ladies who, despite their differences, have each other’s backs when the going gets tough.
Angela Ruth Strong gives readers a cozy mystery bursting with the perfect combination of suspense, romance, memorable small town characters, and plenty of relationship conflict sprinkled with a dash of humor on top. And, like the cookies Marissa serves, there’s a lesson for every reader in any kind of relationship served on the side to sweeten the story.
Grab your favorite brew and settle in with Marissa, Tandy, their boyfriends, and the rest of Grace Springs for a delightful read. Bonus, you’ll get a peek into what’s next for this dynamic duo!
