I thoroughly enjoyed this entertaining story of a pastry chef
Scotti Fitzgerald and her long time friend Zelda.
The story line is cleverly woven with food, a rich family,
love and of cause a suspected murder.
Laced with a touch of humour that certainly puts a smile
on your face .
Highly Recommend .

A most enjoyable read, with enough twisys and turns to keep the reader guessing. An excellent read.
After five long years of waitressing at Manny’s Cuban restaurant in LA with her roommate, Zelda, Scotti Fitzgerald has convinced her mulish employer that she can pull together the cash to buy the place. After befriending a generous local attorney who has become like family, she accepts his offer to help her buy the diner with a $60,000 personal loan. Early on in their friendship, Scotti learns he has a deadly allergy to nuts, and offers to bake him healthy, nut-free baked goods weekly. When he ends up dead after eating one of her all-star “nut-free” brownies, Scotti finds herself behind the eight-ball when his will is read. She’s the recipient of $100,000. And that’s just the beginning! I couldn’t put the book down, and am looking forward to book 2 in the series. Author Anita Rodgers knows how to write 'em.
So, about the author: I think Anita Rogers is an excellent writer and story-teller. She presents Coffee and Crime as a first-person narrative, which I find very bold. Too often first-person authors get so lost in didacticism, that the reader is bored to tears. Ms. Rogers isn't one of these authors! She masterfully creates drama and context by weaving Scotti's thoughts and words into the descriptive panorama of the world seen through her eyes. We discover her personality, as well as those around her by the way she experiences their interactions. Sometimes she's right, but sometimes she's wrong, which grounds the story in reality, and lends plausibility to the plot. I'm a sucker for the old pulp fiction crime stories, and Ms. Rogers writing is reminiscent of those, but with a modern twist.
