From the New York Times bestselling author of Billionaire Blend--a mystery with a sleeping beauty that is "so much fun to read."* It's Fairy Tale Week in New York City, and Clare Cosi has given her coffee truck a "Jack and the Beanstalk" makeover for the Central Park festival. Her ex-husband has contributed a bag of African coffee beans with alleged magical properties, and his octogenarian mother is giving out readings of the grinds. But Clare remains skeptical--until she receives a vision that helps her find a young model's body in the park's woods. The police dismiss "sleeping beauty" as the victim of a drug overdose. But when Clare uncovers evidence that points to murder, she winds up with a dangerous predator on her heels and an investigation that leads right back to her own NYPD detective boyfriend. If she doesn't solve this mystery fast, those magic beans predict an unhappy ending. *Once Upon a Romance
