I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
A Flair for Chardonnay By Deborah Garner
When flamboyant senior sleuth Sadie Kramer learns the owner of Cioccolato, her favorite chocolate shop, is in trouble, she heads for the California wine country with a tote-bagged Yorkie and a slew of questions. The fourth generation Tremiato Winery promises answers, but not before a dead body turns up at the vintners’ scheduled Harvest Festival.
All four Tremiato siblings have possible motives, as well as a few peripheral acquaintances, but only one could be the guilty party. As Sadie juggles truffles, tips and turmoil, she’ll need to sort the grapes from the wrath in order to find the identity of the killer.
My Thoughts About A Flair For Chardonnay:
As I mentioned earlier, I love a good mystery. And A Flair For Chardonnay is just that. When Sadie first set out on her adventure I felt like she was a nosy busybody. But I soon realized that she was just being a caring friend with a nose for mystery solving.
I love how Sadie and the other folks in the story are written and how they interact. I also love that I could not solve this mystery half way through the book. It kept me guessing until the very end! I had no idea who the murderer was until I got to the end of the story. And that makes for the perfect read!
The only thing… it left me with a serious craving for wine and chocolate! I had to get some in order to finish reading. But I’m not complaining. 😀
