Book Description


“A sparkling comedy of errors tucked inside a clever mystery. I loved it!” – Susan M. Boyer, USA Today Bestselling Author of Lowcountry Bordello

“Readers who enjoy the novels of Susan Isaacs will love this series that blends a strong mystery with the demands of living in an exclusive society.” – Kings River Life Magazine
“From the first page to the last, Julie’s mysteries grab the reader and don’t let up.” – Sally Berneathy, USA Today Bestselling Author of The Ex Who Saw a Ghost

When Ellison Russell is nearly killed at a benefactors’ party, she brushes the incident aside as an unhappy accident. But when her house is fire-bombed, she’s shot at, and the person sitting next to her at a gala is poisoned, she must face facts. Someone wants her dead. But why? And can Ellison find the killer before he strikes again?

Add in an estranged sister, a visiting aunt with a shocking secret, and a handsome detective staying in her guesthouse, and Ellison might need more than cream in her coffee.

About the Author

 Julie Mulhern is the USA Today bestselling author of The Country Club Murders.

She is a Kansas City native who grew up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie. She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean--and she's got an active imagination. Truth is--she's an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions.

In addition to mysteries, Julie writes historical, romantic suspense. Her first romance, A Haunting Desire, was a finalist in the 2014 Golden Heart® contest and is available now.

Look for A Haunting Need in the early spring of 2016. Or, if your tastes run to 70s-style mysteries, mark your calendars for May when Clouds in My Coffee, book three of the Country Club Murders, will release.

My Review

This book is fun! F-U-N Fun!

Clouds in my Coffee is the third book in The Country Club Murders series by author Julie Mulhern. This is the first book of Mulhern's that I have read.

Clouds in my Coffee is set in the 1970s in Kansas City. The characters are all part of the country club set (thus The Country Club Murders). Ellison Russell, who is a delightful character,  is surrounded by a fascinating eccentric cast of friends and relatives. She is a widow who lives with her daughter (I think her husband died in an earlier book). She has her aunt and her sister visiting. Her parents live close by. Then there is the handsome detective.  And it would seem that someone is trying to kill Ellison.

Clouds in my Coffee was a great read. It is well written. I loved being back in the 1970s (the era I grew up in). Clouds in my Coffee was a delightful pleasure to read. I didn't want to put it down because I was enjoying reading it so much. I enjoyed the mystery part of the book. It wasn't obvious and I kept changing my mind about who was out to kill who!

Highly recommend. I'm looking forward to reading the earlier books in the series. And the next one!
