    Reader beware: reading books by Julie Mulhern may cause swooning, obsessive reading, and addiction. I'll be honest: I'm teetering on the edge of objectivity and just plain geeking out about how much I love and enjoy not only Clouds In My Coffee, but all of the books in the Country Club Murders series and, quite frankly, anything and everything that comes from Julie Mulhern. I just absolutely adore the setting, the characters (Anarchy!), the humor and wit infused in every story. In Clouds In My Cof Reader beware: reading books by Julie Mulhern may cause swooning, obsessive reading, and addiction. I'll be honest: I'm teetering on the edge of objectivity and just plain geeking out about how much I love and enjoy not only Clouds In My Coffee, but all of the books in the Country Club Murders series and, quite frankly, anything and everything that comes from Julie Mulhern. I just absolutely adore the setting, the characters (Anarchy!), the humor and wit infused in every story. In Clouds In My Coffee, Ellison finds herself housing several family members who have popped into town. First it's her aunt and then it's her sister. (Soon enough it's a certain detective . . . but I'm getting ahead of myself.) Everyone's in town for a huge party being arranged by Ellison's mother - a true Queen Bee of KC. At a pre-event party, Ellison is nearly killed by a falling bust, pushed out of the way with only moments to spare by a fawning (and married) admirer of her (also married) sister. Had that been the only mishap, all might have been well. But that was followed by a fire bomb and gun shots and poison. Everyone is on high alert and Ellison can't imagine who would want to kill her - or why. But if not her, who is the killer after? I was practically drooling with anticipation of reading Clouds In My Coffee, and found myself forcibly slowing down to savor and enjoy all of the rich details, rather than simply rushing through the find out what happens to whom and for-the-love-of-God-why-doesn't-every-scene-feature-Anarchy-Jones?! This is arguably my favorite cozy series currently on the market and I can't wait to see what happens next! (If I may make a suggestion? More Anarchy and less Hunter. K thx!)

One near-miss might be an accident, but when a falling marble bust from overhead is swiftly followed by a firebombing and some bullets, it becomes painfully clear that someone is trying to kill Ellison — but why? Ellison hasn’t got the slightest idea about that. What Ellison does know is that she can’t cope with her houseguests: her selfish, promiscuous sister Marjorie, who is separating from her husband; her free-spirited Aunt Sis, returned from Majorca; and the sexy police Detective Anarchy Jones, ensconced in her carriage house in order to protect her from further attempts. That’s not including debonair lawyer Hunter Tafft, Jones’ rival for Ellison’s affections, who is not sleeping under Ellison’s roof — but sure would like to. What’s a woman to do? Both of the previous books in the series, The Deep End and Guaranteed to Bleed, were five-star fabulous, and Clouds in My Coffee measures up to that high standard. The novel exudes the same fun and perfect rendition of the 1970s as Mulhern’s first two books in the series. And, as one who lived it, I want to know just how the young Mulhern provides such spot-on 1970s details, right down to Bill Blass couture, so-called key parties, and harvest-gold everything. Please forgive the cliché, but I couldn’t put Clouds in My Coffee down and stayed up way too late! I drank down every delicious drop as eagerly as a bleary-eye Ellison approaches her first precious cup from her beloved Mr. Coffee machine. In the interest of full disclosure, I received this book from NetGalley and Henery Press in exchange for an honest review.

    Wow. Each book in this series just gets better and better. Clouds in My Coffee was an outstanding book in an excellent series. I love Ellison. She is absolutely hilarious! She has a spine, and isn’t afraid to tell people what she thinks. I also like Anarchy, though I wish we’d find out more about him. He’s still shrouded in mystery. The new characters introduced in this book; Aunt Sis and Marjorie are also wonderfully written. I hope we see more of them in the next book! The mystery was excellent, Wow.

The mystery was excellent, but it takes a back seat to the characters and their problems, which is fine. Some authors try to do this and don’t pull it off. Ms. Mulhern tries it and wonderfully pulls it off! Overall an absolutely wonderful book. I absolutely can not recommend this enough! I will read the next one!

    Autumn in Kansas City, Missouri, is the time for auctions, galas, and get-togethers. Ellison Russell’s home is overflowing with house guests, from her Aunt Sis to her sister Marjorie. Marjorie seems to have left her husband Greg, and in her attempt to feel better about the situation, is conducting herself in a very flirtatious manner, while showing a lot of cleavage. Aunt Sis is hiding something, and hints of a big secret come out when Frances, mother to Marjorie and Ellison, makes some remarks. Th Autumn in Kansas City, Missouri, is the time for auctions, galas, and get-togethers. Ellison Russell’s home is overflowing with house guests, from her Aunt Sis to her sister Marjorie. Marjorie seems to have left her husband Greg, and in her attempt to feel better about the situation, is conducting herself in a very flirtatious manner, while showing a lot of cleavage. Aunt Sis is hiding something, and hints of a big secret come out when Frances, mother to Marjorie and Ellison, makes some remarks. The first of many attempts on the unknown target’s life begins at the auction when a bust falls over the rail and almost strikes Ellison. But nobody is sure she was the intended victim. However, when someone firebombs her house later, it is beginning to look like she is. At the gala, place cards have been switched around for various reasons, so nobody is sure who was supposed to be sitting in the seat Ellison has taken…and even stranger is the fact that Hammie Walsh, who just happened to grab Ellison’s “water” glass, dies from some kind of poisoning. Anarchy Jones is front and center in the investigation, and as more deadly episodes occur, the mystery ratchets up. Secrets are revealed, and strange alliances form. Clouds in My Coffee was an engaging book that drew me into the world of the 1970s and to the connections between the characters. As always, I loved watching the attraction grow between Anarchy and Ellison. I also liked seeing the sisters argue and one-up each other. First, the older generation of sisters: Frances and Cecelia (Sis); and then Marjorie and Ellison. I didn’t figure out who was the target and who the perpetrator until the end, so I was pleased with how the story unfolded. A definite 5 star read.

    These humorous mysteries do a great job of capturing the mores of the 70s with interesting characters and devious plots. Ellison is torn between love for her family and the dysfunctional relationships that make that easy to forget.

We are introduced to Ellison's estranged sister, Marjorie, her eccentric Aunt Sis, and long-hidden family secrets are unearthed. Romantic tension between Ellison and her would-be suitors detective Anarchy Jones and thrice-divorced lawyer Hunter Tafft heats to a slow simmer. As a relative newcomer to cozy mysteries, Mulhern's books have become my gold standard for the genre. They are perfect escapist reading - fun, breezy, and entertaining, yet never too silly or fluffy. And the characters grow more three-dimensional with each installment. I can't wait for Book 4! Full review on my blog: http://lakesidemusing.blogspot.com/20...

    Poor Ellison, I am sure she would love to just take some time off and relax. Alas, this isn’t the book to do it.

The compare and contrast between Mother and Aunt Sis with Ellison and Marjorie is a great touch. As with the previous books Ellison’s sarcasm, lost on most of the more oblivious people in her life, drive the story with its humorous touch. There is plenty of suspense and the occasional red herring. This my favorite book of the series. As with all the books it read great as a stand alone, and even better a part of the wonderful series.

    Oh good god, this book was rip roaring hilarious! I was listening to the book in my car and I am sure that other drivers thought I was a crazy woman as I was laughing hysterically at points. One guy at a stoplight kept staring at me so I just waved and kept on giggling! This is the best book in the series yet! Someone is out to kill Ellison and she has absolutely no idea why. The twists and turns are as funny as they are serious. I have got to download the next book now!

Ellison Russell’s mother is planning a huge gala but when unexpected family, her daughter, Marjorie, and her sister, Sis, show up she is anything but pleased. She sends them to Ellison’s. They haven’t been home in years, why now? Nothing is going to ruin her event. What would people think? At a pre-gala party Ellison is almost killed by a falling sculpture, then someone throws a Molotov cocktail at her house and bullets are flying. T Dollycas’s Thoughts I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book! Ellison Russell’s mother is planning a huge gala but when unexpected family, her daughter, Marjorie, and her sister, Sis, show up she is anything but pleased. She sends them to Ellison’s. They haven’t been home in years, why now? Nothing is going to ruin her event. What would people think? At a pre-gala party Ellison is almost killed by a falling sculpture, then someone throws a Molotov cocktail at her house and bullets are flying. Then at the gala dinner she is almost poisoned. Why would someone want Ellison dead? Until the culprit is caught another guest moves in with Ellison, hunky detective Anarchy Jones. This leaves prospective husband, at least in her mother’s eyes, Hunter Tafft a little upset. Marjorie has Ellison simmering because she may be married but that doesn’t stop her from flirting with every man in sight and maybe a little more with one or two. Ellison hasn’t got time to be worrying about her sister’s antics. She has to catch a killer before he succeeds in killing her. Julie Mulherm has written another outstanding story. These characters are so much fun. Frances Russell, Ellison’s mom, is the epitome of the country club wife. She has her committees and does lunch and does everything the “right” way, her way. Her daughters seem to always be letting her down and even when there are far away from trouble, which I know, isn’t often, they still get the blame. Especially Ellison. Ellison has grown since the series started. She knows how to handle her mother, or get her father to handle her mother. Marjorie is at a crossroads, “things always looks greener” situation. Ellison tries her best to get her back on track. Aunt Sis, is a free spirit and a huge thorn in Frances’ side. She has a secret and that is why she has returned to Kansas City. Ellison just needs to run interference between all over them and hopes that before any permanent damage is done, they all go back where they came from. There is non-stop action from the start to the finish. The killer seems to be pretty incompetent, so many tries to murder Ellison, and thankfully they haven’t succeeded. I really enjoyed that no one knew the motivation behind the attempts. Not even Detective Jones. It’s hard to catch a suspect when the victim really has no enemies or at least no one that would want her dead. The story like the first two installments is set in the early 70’s. I love the references to the early television shows and police investigations without all the technology we have today. I need to mention that along with all the drama there is a fair amount of humor. The way this family interacts both in stressful and not so stressful moments may have you giggling and even laughing out loud. This story checks all my boxes for a perfect escape. Awesome plot, terrific characters and set in a wonderful time. This truly is one of my favorite series!

    Clouds in my Coffee is the third Country Club Murders book by Julie Mulhern, and I believe it is the best one yet. Ellison Russell is a recently widowed mother, who found out her husband was not only cheating on her, but was rather kinky at that. She is a member of the County Club set and does not need to worry about money at all. She seems to stumble onto or run over dead bodies and has enough accidents that her mother is on speed dial at the hospital. This addition to the series does not so mu Clouds in my Coffee is the third Country Club Murders book by Julie Mulhern, and I believe it is the best one yet. Ellison Russell is a recently widowed mother, who found out her husband was not only cheating on her, but was rather kinky at that. She is a member of the County Club set and does not need to worry about money at all. She seems to stumble onto or run over dead bodies and has enough accidents that her mother is on speed dial at the hospital. This addition to the series does not so much have her stumbling onto dead bodies as it does having her avoid becoming a victim herself. After almost being killed several times (4 times in this book) and having a woman die at her table at her mother's gala, Ellison is put under police protection. This book introduces another family member, Aunt Sis, and lets us get to know her sister Marjorie a lot better. As they both end up as houseguests at Ellison's place. Her aunt can be as haughty as her mother, but she is often described in the story as an aging hippie. She wears her hair in a greying ponytail and caftans are her formal wear. Marjorie is involved in a midlife crisis and there is another man involved in her life. Relationships get more complicated, family secrets come to light, and the mystery feels more dangerous because it hits very close to home. Of course we can not forget about the romance, or near romance in the story. Ellison is being pursued by two very eligible bachelors. Anarchy Jones the detective and Hunter Tafft the well connected lawyer. Her mother is pushing Hunter, as he is part of their social circle, but it seems Aunt Sis is rather fond of Anarchy. Unfortunately due to her trust issues with men, Ellison is not ready for a relationship with either man, but it does not stop her kisses and the tingling she gets from both of them. This is a fun part of the story that I look forward to in each book. It is a touch decision and each man offers different things to Ellison. Ellison is a great character. She is tough, strong, independent, loyal, loving and supportive to her family and the kind of person I would love to have as a friend. I love the setting in the 70s. I lived it and this hits so true, it also adds a different touch to this cozy series. The stories are fun, the family is quirky, the Country Club set is snobby and I wish that I was there! A great series that I would recommend to cozy mystery readers as well as anyone who loved the the 70s. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

    Ellison Russel's back, and inasmuch as she no longer wants to see dead bodies nearby, it seemed like Death continued to stalk her. After her sister and aunt's surprise visit in her home, she was almost killed in a benefactor's party, her house almost burned down, and someone shot at her with a gun. Oh and the next day, her seatmate at a gala party was poisoned from the glass of water that she herself was supposed to sip. Could it just be coincidence? Was she really the target? Or Is this an act Ellison Russel's back, and inasmuch as she no longer wants to see dead bodies nearby, it seemed like Death continued to stalk her.

Oh and the next day, her seatmate at a gala party was poisoned from the glass of water that she herself was supposed to sip. Could it just be coincidence? Was she really the target? Or Is this an act of revenge? Luckily, hottie Detective Anarchy Jones got her back again. But it seemed little sister Marjorie also got her eyes on him. And among other men. Aunt Sis, on the other hand, looked like she's got a hidden agenda for her visit. One death threat after another, Ellison's mother was annoyed by all this hullabaloo. She couldn't even take sympathy on her poor daughter's life and death situation. How cruel! Clouds in My Coffee, like the first two books (A Deep End and Guaranteed To Bleed) managed to exercise my brain to come up with all the plausible solutions and possible suspects in a murder investigation. Set in the 1970s where rotary phones were the highlight of communication, this book gives me that funky cool vibes of dating and simple urban life, without the hassles and bustle of high-end technology. The characters were fun to read, especially Ellison's and Anarchy Jones. You could feel their chemistry, the spark, the unmistakable attraction between these two, but no one acted on their feelings. And I quite like it, because it made their relationship more mysterious and baffling The murder / death threats were equally mystifying. I had three suspects in my head, none of which were deemed correct in the end. I loved that the mystery was unpredictable and highly anticipated. Julie Mulhern did a great job keeping her readers engaged and engrossed. Clouds in my Coffee deserves my 4 coffee-cup rating! I received this book from Henery Press via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I can't wait to see what comes up in the next book! (I had to buy a bottle of Kinky Liqueur because of the story behind the character Kinky.)

    In this the third installment of the Country Club Mysteries we find Ellison and her friends and family embroiled in a few mysteries. The story held up well and there were great resolutions to all the side stories and the main mystery. Almost a perfect book. Great editing. Great character development good story. I can't wait for story 4. In this the third installment of the Country Club Mysteries we find Ellison and her friends and family embroiled in a few mysteries.

    LUV I love this series. Was recently introduced to this author so the series of books was readily available. I read the first three in a week or just a tad more. Luuuuuuved them. Great reads. The story line and writing made me feel like I was with them literally when this happened. Now the bad news, I have to wait till I think October before the next one comes out!!!!!

    I think it would be very helpful to read this author's mysteries in order. There was too much I wanted to know about the main character's past that was hinted at but never revealed in this series' #3 mystery.

    A fun read and made me seek out other books in this series. Characters are broadly drawn and family dynamics are priceless.

    I simply love the Country Club Murder series. Since I live just across the state line, I can easily envision the local setting as it was in the 70's. In Clouds In My Coffee, Ellison seems to have drawn some unwanted attention from someone intent on harming her, much to the chagrin of her mother, a Country Club elitist who is more concerned with appearances than with her daughter's well-being. Circumstances have a quirky Aunt and an estranged sister residing temporarily with Ellison, and later a I simply love the Country Club Murder series.

Circumstances have a quirky Aunt and an estranged sister residing temporarily with Ellison, and later a hunky detective who tries to keep her safe -and close, very close. The nearness of the detective definitely doesn't set well with Ellison's lawyer, who also has feelings for her. Daughter Grace is a typical teenager. I love the characters in this series and their varied personalities. I especially like the family dynamics that are so true to form. The romantic element is evident, but subdued and well done. Can't wait to read the next book.

    Julie Mulhern does it again. I feel sorry for my other books that will have to wait while I read this whole series. :) Oh, and I can't say the title of this book without breaking out in "You're so Vain" Kansas City, 1970's Julie Mulhern does it again.

    I like this serious because it is unique. It's set in the seventies and the main character is very well educated I like this serious because it is unique. It's set in the seventies and the main character is very well educated
