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.
This was such a fun book! Wine and chocolate rocks! Sadie is a sassy clothing store owner who travels everywhere with her tiny pup. A friend (and her favorite chocolatier) goes missing, and she goes to his family's vineyard in the hope of finding where Matteo went.
She arrives to find a murder and a family who fights and who all seems guilty. But no Matteo. So of course Sadie dives right in, trying to investigate a murder and help her friend. Somehow she gets the Tremiato family to trust her enough for her to investigate without drawing too much attention to herself.
I love the way Deborah Garner describes everything in this book, and I can't wait to read more in this series! This book literally kept me guessing until the very end.
