REVIEWS

For the Bookstore Cafe Mysteries

For DEATH BY COFFEE

“DEATH BY COFFEE was a delightful fast-paced mystery and I loved all the quirky characters that helped to make this story more enjoyable. I instantly connected with Krissy, who loves puzzles and thought she was the perfect heroine to solve this mystery. I love finding new authors and I am excited to read the next book in the series by Mr. Erickson.”

Books-n-Kisses

“Right from the start, I was engaged in the storytelling…I recommend taking a chance on this new series by author Alex Erickson.  A cozy mystery with chuckles, books, coffee, cats and a bumbling amateur sleuth…just the right mix of mystery and humour.”

Open Book Society

“DEATH BY COFFEE is a quick read with a lot of humorous moments…What’s not to love, with the cat, multitudes of books, and the promise of coffee!…To sum it up, Author Alex Erickson has made a good start to his Bookstore Café Mystery series with his debut novel, DEATH BY COFFEE.”

Jane Reads

“Krissy has spunk and she doesn’t back down, which is great for a heroine…I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one.”

Socrates Book Review

The Well-Read Pirate

“The story line is great and a cast of characters so well developed, you will be pulled in from the start and at the end you will want more. I am excited for this series and am eagerly waiting to see what Krissy will get her self into in Death by Tea.”

Shelley Reads

For DEATH BY TEA

“With no shortage of suspects in this tale, funny scenes, coffee, bumbling amateur sleuth, it makes great for an afternoon reading. It contains just the right mix of humor and mystery.”

Book Series in Order

“This book is a fast paced cozy with fun characters and a good story line . . . Author Alex Erickson keeps the reader guessing what happened and who the murderer is until the very end.”

Sharon Reads

“This cozy will appeal to readers who enjoy Mary Daheim’s Judith Flynn or the coffee-shop seting in Cleo Coyle’s Coffeehouse series.”

Booklist

For DEATH BY PUMPKIN SPICE

“To finish this book, I felt as though I had just finished a weekend in the game of Clue. It was tidy, and gave the reader an enjoyable unpredictable ending. Don’t cheat by checking the folder in the middle of the board though, just take the time to read and savor this book. Every inch of this book spoke to the fall, and the possibilities that come with the season. I invite you to the Pine Hill Halloween party, where murder is expected, and love gives you goosebumps.”

Bibliophile Reviews

“Readers will grow attached to Vicki and Krissy and long to visit the bookstore . . . “

Kings River Life Magazine

“A smooth narrative where most of the characters are normal, down-to-earth folks, combined with suspects galore and twists and turns make this a great afternoon read….Alex Erickson has created yet another mystery that is so much fun to read!”

Suspense Magazine (Mary Lignor)

For DEATH BY VANILLA LATTE

“I enjoyed how the mystery was presented, giving you enough clues in the course of the investigation to figure out the killer on your own, but also plenty of red herrings to keep things interesting. I thought I had it figured out early on and was pleasantly surprised to be proven wrong.”

Book and Coffee Addict

“It was a story that I enjoyed and was eager to solve, as I didn’t want to put it down.”

Bibliophile Reviews
4.5 out of 5 stars!

“Plenty of suspects keep the story moving…”

Kirkus

“With the number of suspects and Krissy’s awesome handling of the investigation, readers will have a whole lot of fun finding out ‘whodunit.'”

Suspense Magazine (Mary Lignor)

For DEATH BY EGGNOG

If you are looking for a fun, cozy, Christmas read, then I would definitely recommend you go pick up this book. And don’t worry if you haven’t read any others in the series. But don’t be surprised if you find yourself headed out to the bookshop or local library to pick up the rest in the series…”
