Hello everybody! Guess what?
It’s yet another book blast ^_^’.
(Contrary to what my blog seems to reveal at this point, this isn’t supposed to be a reviewer/book blog, so my next post will not, in fact, be a blast or a post about books.)
This time it’s The Devil Drinks Coffee by Destiny Ford. Hooray!
The book I’m going to dish about today is a bit quirky, which will hopefully pique the interest of lots of readers. The title gave me a moment of pause—is this going to be worth it?—but after reading about it, I’ve decided it sounds pretty interesting.
I’m going to give you a synopsis, some author info, a link to an excerpt so you can test the waters, some purchase links, and then there’s going to be a super sweet INTL giveaway you can enter!
Onto the synopsis!
The Devil Drinks Coffee Summary
By Angela Corbett, writing as Destiny Ford
A cow suicide, a revolving door rescue, and the birth of a bright purple pig are starting to make Kate Saxee wonder if taking a job in her small hometown of Branson Falls, Utah, was such a great idea. As The Branson Tribune editor, Kate covers local news, which, more often than not, involves her accident-prone mom. Nothing truly newsworthy has ever happened in the quiet town until local teen Chelsea Bradford turns up dead in a Branson Falls lake.
The police rule Chelsea’s death an accident, but Kate suspects there’s more to the story—and she’s not the only one. Two of Branson’s most eligible bachelors are determined to help her solve the crime—among other things. But the small town social network is faster than Twitter, and gossip about Kate’s love-life is quickly branding her the Branson Falls hussy.
As Kate learns more about Chelsea, she discovers that plenty of people are trying to cover up the real story behind the girl’s death—including Chelsea’s parents. Now Kate has to juggle work, men, her mom’s most recent disaster involving a low-speed John Deere Combine chase on the freeway, and fend off the Mormons heaven-bent on saving her soul—all while solving Chelsea’s murder. Dealing with this is going to require a lot of coffee, chocolate frosted donuts, Neil Diamond’s greatest hits, and a slew of words not on the town approved imitation swear list.
I told you it was a bit quirky. But still, interesting, no?

Now let’s find out more about Destiny Ford (aka Angela Corbett)!
As a child, Angela Corbett’s most prized possession was a set of read-along books. She used to follow along with the narrator on the stereo and dream of when she would be able to read by herself. Her childhood reading habit led her to consider her future career. However, after consulting with her parents, she realized she had already exceeded hobbit height and since fairies and dragonslayers were tricky jobs to get, she decided she wanted to create worlds of her own. She started writing poetry in elementary school and worked as a journalist in high school and college, but could never leave her love for writing fiction behind.
She is a graduate of Westminster College where she double majored in communication and sociology. She has worked as a journalist, freelance writer, and director of communications and marketing. She loves classic cars, traveling, and escaping in a good book. She lives in Utah with her incredibly supportive husband and their five-pound Pomeranian, Pippin, whose following of fangirls could rival Justin Bieber’s.
Eternal Starling is her debut novel and the first book in the Emblem of Eternity trilogy.
