Brew or Die

by Caroline Fardig

Brew or DieBrew or Die is a fast-paced, multi-layered, cozy mystery. I had a blast reading this one. The main character, Jules, has just gotten her PI (Private Investigator) license which means she officially has two jobs now. She is manager of the Java Jive Coffeehouse, owned by her best friend Pete, and she will now work for her friend Maya who owns an investigation agency. In this tale she is attracted to three different men while juggling two investigations. Jules is one busy red-head with an impulsive disposition.

I would like to extend my thanks to and to Random House (Alibi) for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

Rating: 5/5

Category: Mystery

Notes: #4 in the Java Jive Mystery Series—worked well for me as a standalone

Publication:   April 25, 2017—Random House (Alibi)

Memorable Lines:

“You, on the other hand, are always tangled up in your investigations, shoulder deep in them most of the time. You have to deal with your feelings and think about how your actions are going to affect everyone around you. And somehow you always manage to come out on top. That’s real strength.”

This time there wasn’t the crippling depression and the overwhelming urge to consume every piece of chocolate within my zip code.

“I didn’t invite you in,” I said, pretty much done with all males and their testosterone for the foreseeable future.
