Another Dose of Murder and Caffiene
Murder Over Mochas is the 5th book in the Java Jive Series but Caroline Fardig. It was a really fun read and it was nice to see the way the relationships have developed throughout the series. Although it could be read as a stand alone there is a ton of back story that would make the relationships between the characters a bit confusing without having read the first four books.
This book was a lot of fun because the main character, Juliet is full of sass and has a take charge attitude that gets her in trouble, but also endears her to the readers. She isn’t without her flaws but they only add to her likeability. In this installment of the mystery series we meet the ex that screwed over and when he drops dead and she is a suspect we get to watch her dig into his recent past to figure out what’s going on. I liked that this mystery delved into the pharmaceutical drug sales area, not one I had seen in a cozy mystery before and it seemed like a realistic story line to me. It was a fast paced, fun read that ended just the way I hoped it would. I definitely recommend this to any cozy mystery fans.
