Product Description

"A fantastic contemporary mystery romance! The Devil Drinks Coffee is superbly written with a great cast of characters, comedy, a mystery with a twist, and a budding love triangle to round it out!" –InD’tale 4.5 Star Review

"A fun romp! I'm hooked on the Kate Saxee Mystery series!" –USA Today Bestselling author Pamela DuMond

A cow suicide, a revolving door rescue, and the birth of a bright purple pig are starting to make Kate Saxee wonder if taking a job in her small hometown of Branson Falls, Utah, was such a great idea. As The Branson Tribune editor, Kate covers local news, which, more often than not, involves her accident-prone mom. Nothing truly newsworthy has ever happened in the quiet town until local teen Chelsea Bradford turns up dead in a Branson Falls lake.

The police rule Chelsea’s death an accident, but Kate suspects there’s more to the story—and she’s not the only one. Two of Branson’s most eligible bachelors are determined to help her solve the crime—among other things. But the small town social network is faster than Twitter, and gossip about Kate’s love-life is quickly branding her the Branson Falls hussy.

As Kate learns more about Chelsea, she discovers that plenty of people are trying to cover up the real story behind the girl’s death—including Chelsea’s parents. Now Kate has to juggle work, men, her mom’s most recent disaster involving a low-speed John Deere Combine chase on the freeway, and fend off the Mormons heaven-bent on saving her soul—all while solving Chelsea’s murder. Dealing with this is going to require a lot of coffee, chocolate frosted donuts, Neil Diamond's greatest hits, and a slew of words not on the town approved imitation swear list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to Kate's next adventure! 30 May 2013
By KV - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Kate Saxee has moved back to her hometown of Branson Falls, Utah to work as editor of this small town's newspaper. When a high school girl turns up dead, Kate wonders if there is a cover up and who is behind the smoke screen. When the Mormon Ladies link her with two good looking bachelors, Hawke and Drake, Kate has to balance work and her "romances" on a daily basis. Throw in a accident prone mom, small town gossip and some unique situations and you have a story worth reading.

This book was a great read! Small town living comes to life through the characters and situations. Enough twists and turns to keep it interesting and some great lines that had me laughing out loud. Had me guessing who done it almost to the very end.

Well written and fun. Looking forward to Kate's next adventure!

And the cover art is pretty cool too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch out Stephanie Plum, Kate Saxee is the new woman in town! 4 June 2013
By Jennifer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been struggling for a couple days over my review of this novel because I worry whether or not I can express my love of it enough. It is perfect in so many ways. I am a huge fan of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, and I was thrilled when The Devil Drinks Coffee reminded me of them.

Heroine Kate Saxee is full of sass and humor, plus she even has two hunky guys that are begging her for attention, which creates sexual tension that will almost set your pages on fire! Add to that some crazy small town gossip, a caffeine addiction we can all relate to, and a mother that is such a train wreck she will make you anticipate her next accident. You will even secretly wish your mother could be as entertaining as Kate's!

You will love Ford's fresh, unique voice and you'll be happy you added this comical caper to your to-be-read pile. You MUST pick this book up. I am even going to give you an, "I told you so," in advance. :) Happy reading!

3.0 out of 5 stars A VERY Shallow Read 17 August 2013
By Miss Mocha Latte - Published on
Verified Purchase
I found the characters of little depth. The prose drags on with lots of emphasis on the sexual attractiveness of the main characters and their entertaining flirtations and exploits. Imagine one small-town gal having three super "hunk" men in tight fitting jeans rivaling for her attention, and referring to her "boobs" as a useful weapon to solve a possible murder. I would have preferred focus on the crime: This book has none of the nervous tension associated with a really good murder mystery, substituting instead an extensive amount of humorous sexual tension. It could easily be categorized as a romance rather than a mystery novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new must read series!!!! Wonderful light suspense. 16 September 2013
By Jeanie Jackson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Another series to love! Kate Saxee couldn't wait to get out of her hometown when she was a teenager, but when she was offered the job as editor of the weekly newspaper, she couldn't resist! She is drawn to investigate the "accidental" death of a high school senior who left town a few months ago. No one was aware that the girl was back until her body turned up in a nearby lake. When a gorgeous stranger helps get Kate into the crime scene and asks her to work with him, she can't refuse; it is apparent he has resources the newspaper doesn't have, as well as a body that won't quit. Things get really tense when the governor's name gets tossed into the mix.

The humor of the book balances the serious subject. The most humor of the novel comes both from things that happen to Kate and the way the small town watches every move and gossip blows everything out of proportion. Kate's naivety is a little over done but I know people like that so I can deal with it. I haven't explained this well, but this book belongs in the TBR of every reader of light or cozy suspense. I bought it because it was highly recommended by friends on one of Shelly Fredman's Facebook pages. Thanks for the recommendation guys!
5.0 out of 5 stars A murder in a small Mormon town with more secrets than values 25 February 2015
By Customer Cathy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a great book. Kate is a perfect sleuth and reporter. She is the small town girl who moved away and has come back. She can now see through the polite veneer of the Mormon townspeople and their standards and values.The characters are compelling and very well written. Dylan, the fascinating rich politician, Hawke, the bad boy superhero, and Spence, the boy next good boss/friend and all seem to be in some tangled form of love with Kate. There is also Officer Bobby, the overweight cop, unwilling to do his job. Taking up Officer Bobby's job, Kate investigates the case of a murdered teenage girl, someone is trying to stop her from discovering the truth. With the help of all the men protecting her and her crazy and accident prone mother defending her she might just figure out the case despite someone after her and all the saccharine society Mormon women trying to marry her off.
