I managed to squeeze in a bit of practice today, and somehow I ended up making a painting of a coffee plant. It’s probably because I’ve been reading Coffeehouse Mysteries non-stop these past few days, haha. It’s a cozy mystery series that’s very easy to read and has decent plots. I think the first book was published back in 2002, and you can really see how things change through the years. Palm pilots were all the rage during the publication of the first book. Social media wasn’t what it is now. The treatment of female characters have also changed a lot from book 1 to book 11.
What I love most about the book series, though, is all the information about coffee and the food that goes well with or are cooked with it. It’s a nice read, especially if you’re a coffee lover. I just started book 11 today (A Brew to a Kill), and it’s interesting that there are elements of Filipino culture inserted in the story.
