My Thoughts

I recently finished reading Bulletproof Barista, and I must say, it was a well-written and delightful book. The book’s engaging mystery, well-developed characters, and vivid New York City setting all added to its allure.

Although this is the first book in the series that I’ve read, I still found it to be a very entertaining read.

You’re in for a treat with this short, entertaining mystery that will keep you guessing. If you’re a fan of cozy mysteries, I highly recommend giving this book a read!

Thank you to NetGalley and Berkley Publishing Group for allowing me to read and review this book.
