<b>Whole latte lovin' goin' on</b>This book should come with a warning: caution highly addictive. Kyra Davis' first novel, <b>Sex, Murder, and a Double Latte</b>, is an absolute treat! You won't want to put it down. Sophie Katz's vivid imagination fuels her mystery writing as much as the frappucinos she downs in a San Francisco Starbucks. That imagination is her ticket to fame until Michael Tolsky, the Hollywood producer who optioned her story, turns up dead in a scene out of his own movie. Suicide, or the work of a homicidal stalker who has now turned his attention to Sophie? Not satisfied with the cops' answers, Sophie decides to get her own. Anatoly Darinsky turns up too conveniently just as the brew heats up. He's too intense, too Russian, too disciplined for Sophie's liking. What's a savvy, thirty-something, ethnically intriguing, fanciful woman to do? Suspect him, of course. Davis' blend of mystery and chick lit is as perfectly balanced as the coffee and steam in Sophie's favorite frappucinos. And every bit as addicting.
