The title of Kyra Davis's debut novel is also a fitting description of its stlye. Blending elements of steamy romance and hard-boiled mystery, this delightfully witty amalgam of chick lit and amateur sleuth mystery (featuring lovable, caffeine-addicted protagonist Sophie Katz) is not only a compelling testimonial to Starbucks; it's also one of the most impressive genre debuts to come along in years!
Sophie is a popular murder mystery novelist living in San Francisco. The biracial wordsmith has it all: a small group of loving (and wildly eccentric) friends, a beautiful apartment, a charismatic feline companion -- and an obsessed fan that may be trying to kill her. After a Hollywood movie producer interested in bringing one of Sophie's novels to the big screen reportedly commits suicide in a bizarre reenactment of a death scene from one of his movies, Sophie senses there is something terribly wrong. That foreboding turns to downright terror when someone begins re-creating scenes from Sophie's latest murder mystery with Sophie herself as the prime target. Can hunky Russian expatriate Anatoly Darinsky help her find the assailant -- or is he the mysterious stalker?
In Sex, Murder and a Double Latte, Davis mixes laugh-out-loud wit, cheeky panache, and pop-culture charm with a fast-paced and lighthearted whodunit that should appeal to anyone who enjoys reading authors like Harley Jane Kozak, Sophie Kinsella, or Elaine Viets. If novels were cups of coffee, Davis's debut would be a Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccino with extra whipped cream. In a word: delish!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I heart Barnes & Noble. I also heart The Capitola Book Café who actually sent my book out to a few individuals they knew in the film industry. I have no idea if Sophie will ever get to be in front of a camera but a few Hollywood types did come up to Northern California to talk to me which was pretty flattering in and of itself!
Sometimes it’s hard to believe this is my life!
