Reviews

Bookstore Cafe Mysteries

Death by Coffee (#1)
“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

“This was a well plotted and well written mystery […] The story was entertaining [and] cozy mystery fans should enjoy it.”

Book's the Thing!

“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!"

Jane Reads

“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

“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

“Author Alex Erickson is off to a wonderful start with DEATH BY COFFEE […] DEATH BY COFFEE gets added to my list of books I couldn’t put down!”

Lisa K’s Book Reviews

“I was extremely pleased and look forward to revisiting Krissy and her new home of Pine Hills when the second book is released in November!”

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

Death by Tea (#2)
“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

“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 storyline [...] Author Alex Erickson keeps the reader guessing what happened and who the murderer is until the very end.”

Sharon Reads

Death by Pumpkin Spice (#3)
“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

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

Kings River Life Magazine

“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

Death by Vanilla Latte (#4)
“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

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

Bibliophile Reviews

“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

Death by Eggnog (#5)
“Fans may savor the details of the heroine’s everyday life [brought up in DEATH BY EGGNOG].”

“A Christmas cozy for fans of the series.”

“Jump right in and get in the mood for the holidays or start at the beginning [of the series] to get the full effect of Krissy and her crazy life.”

Kings River Life Magazine

“[A]nother great book in this cozy series!”

My Interdimensional Chaos

“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…”
