Melissa's Review:

Shot in the Dark is book 17 in the Coffehouse Mystery series. I can't help just hopping right into a series without reading the previous books. It worked out well for me though, since I didn't really need to know anything from previous books. I really wound up enjoying Cleo Coyle's writing style and will have to try more of her books in the near future.

Clare Cosi runs the Village Blend, a coffee shop that has a ton of new business thanks to a popular dating app called Cinder. Things seem to be going well up until one of the spurned women shows up to confront a man in the coffee shop with a gun. As you can imagine the huge crowd every day dies down after the videos of the incident goes viral. Add in Clare spotting a body that she's convinced is connected and you have a pretty good mystery she's trying to solve. With a person of interest on her radar, Clare and the police try to uncover the true identity of the man in question. The plot was pretty intricate and flowed so well, I really thought some of the twists wouldn't wind up being connected so I have to give kudos to the author. I didn't guess the killer until it was revealed and I love when that happens.

Shot in the Dark is a mystery novel you won't want to put down. The plot never lagged and I wound up loving the characters. There were quite a few different things going on but the author weaved it all together where it was seamless to the main plot. I'm impressed, and highly recommend this book if you're a fan of mystery novels.
