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.


My Thoughts

A Cuppa Trouble was a fairly fun read! I had a hard time getting into it, it is the second book in a series but I would say that you technically don’t need to read book 1. I hadn’t, which was why the first few chapters were slightly confusing, because you just jump right in and there were so many characters and I was like I have no idea what’s going on. But just like any book, it all started to make more sense at time went on and I had a fun time reading it.

There’s a little bit of mystery and some romance and friendship. Tandy and Marissa were fun characters to follow. They both had quirks that made them relatable. I will say, there were a few times that I got confused about who’s POV I was reading, it wasn’t really obvious when it switched, and sometimes I’d be like wait, who’s talking now? But other than that they were both enjoyable characters to read.

I also loved the mystery in this book. I was honestly surprised, I did guess close to the end who was actually behind everything (what? I do watch a lot of crime dramas, so I like to think I’m good at guessing who the bad guy is) but I thought it was well written and there was still an element of surprise.

All in all it was a fun read and I recommend picking it up!

I have voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from JustRead Tours. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
