A young winery owner won't let one sour grape ruin the bunch in the first installment of this exciting cozy mystery series.
Parker Valentine has always dreamed of opening her own winery in her hometown of Boulder, Colorado. But she gets more than she bargained for when a food and wine critic unexpectedly shows up at Vino Valentine on opening day. A negative review could be fatal for her business, and not only does he seem to hate her chardonnay, he also collapses and dies shortly after drinking it.
Although Parker hoped that the attendees would put a cork in it, soon her winery is at the center of a social media firestorm. With #killerchardonnay trending online, Parker's business is in danger of closing, and she has no choice but to investigate the murder herself.
To restore her reputation, catch a killer, and keep her struggling business open, Parker needs only one thing: some good proof.
Parker Valentine has just opened her new business, a delightful sounding wine tasting shop called Vino Valentine. On opening day, of all days, a food critic with a horrible reputation for giving awful reviews that can close down a business arrives at her shop and unexpectedly drops dead! What does Parker do, she helps to solve this murder along with her brother, best friend Sage and a few other characters Parker must solve this murder before it’s too late and she loses her business.
First, in a new series, I absolutely loved this book, the setting of Boulder Colorado could not be more perfect and the plot kept me entertained until the end with so many suspects I had a hard time trying to figure out the murderer. I enjoyed the storyline, the side romances, with clues and red herrings thrown in that kept me guessing.
With a great setting, plot, and lovable characters I sipped my wine as I enjoyed this book. I look forward to the nest book in this delightful new Cozy Mystery Series.
