Welcome to the Bean Hive Coffeehouse where the gossip is as hot as the coffee!


Life couldn’t be better! I’ve got a great husband, getting along with my ex and his new wife, plus I own a very successful coffeehouse! And…there just might be an addition to the family on the horizon, but my lips are sealed. – ROXY BLOOM

Dahlin’ things can change in the blink of an eye. Even in an idyllic tourist destination like Honey Springs.

A string of purse snatchings along the boardwalk has left one victim dead.

locals, Loretta Bebe and Maxine Bloom, have joined forces to make Sheriff Shepard and the Mayor accountable for the crimes. After all, they too were victims.

Dedicated to her community and the safety of her customers, super sleuth Roxy Bloom is determined to track down this ruthless purse snatcher before someone else is bumped off.

Killer Coffee Cozy Mystery is a series about small town gossip, family, friends, and putting differences aside when troubles brews.

Do you love to read about family and friendships?

Do you enjoy holidays, festivals, and celebrations?

What about when life isn’t always rosy?

This series has all of that and more along with twisty turn mysteries that will have you rooting for the entire town of Honey Springs.


The characters are well developed and well rounded.  It was really good to be with Roxy and the gang, including Patrick, Aunt Maxi and Maxi’s employees at the Bean Hive.  This time Maxi will have to figure out who the purse snatcher is and finds out if they are responsible for another murder.

The writing flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions kept me engaged from the very beginning and took me on a great journey.  The mystery is well plotted and not easily solved.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  These books just keep getting better. 

I volunteered to review an ARC of this book and and I have given this honest review.
