Book Overview

High-stakes wine fraud and murder disguised as a heart attack compel Sunny McCoskey to again toss aside her chef's apron and don the role of sleuth. When the list of suspects includes her new lover, the celebrity chef at a posh Napa Valley eatery, the personal risks of her investigation rise dramatically. With the same eclectic crew of gourmet friends and sassy co-workers who helped her in Sharpshooter, Sunny proves that she has a nose for crime as...

fun light mystery

This is clearly aimed at foodies and wine lovers, but even though I can just barely tell a pinot noir from a cab, I enjoyed it. The mystery plot is a little thin (though intriguing), but the real delight is in the dialogue. Nadia Gordon is one of the few authors who can nail witty, contemporary dialogue without it sounding forced or precious. I did live in Northern California for awhile, and I wallowed in the nostalgia brought on by vivid descriptions of (among other things) winter rains, organic produce, and the ridiculous behavior of yuppie wine snobs.

Excellent Murder Mystery with a Great Wine Flavor

Whether you live in the Napa Valley, or just enjoy visiting it, you'll love the setting of this book. Sunny, the main character, is a lovable, but unintentional sleuth intent on solving a murder. If you're a wine fan, you'll love the references to real wines in the book, learn a little, and enjoy the aromas of a great mystery! I've already purchased her other book!

Nadja doesn't miss a beat but I keep missing my stop.

I have been waiting this book ever since I read Nadja's first Napa mystery and burned my skin badly (beach reading). Previous book was a serious page turner and so is this. I commute to Manhattan every day to work and this book is the reason for some very irratated clients who had to wait outside until I came and unlocked the door. I missed my stop twice going to work and once when getting back home. Parsippany doesn't have too many train stops so I ended up walking back home (3 miles, thank you Nadja). I love the book and I love Nadja. Although I hate you little for making my and my clients life difficult for few days but it was worth it. But I can assure you that when the next book comes out I will stay home in bed and under my warm blanket. Would you Nadja care to join me?

I commute to work everyday to Manhattan and this book is the reason for some of very irratated patients (I'm working for an dentist) who had to wait outside until I came and unlocked the door.
