Flair for Cardonnay a book review


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.

I loved this mystery! In fact it made me want to drink some wine, eat cheese and chocolate as I turned each page. I could almost smell the delicious truffles Sadie ate as the author described them. The Tremiato family has dynamics as we all do in our families, without the murder mystery. See who is the guilty one as you turn page by page. This author had vivid descriptions in Sadies' weekend off of the bed and breakfast that could fill the readers imagination. I could imagine my self enthralled in a game of rummy or sipping wine, as the reader should. Find out if her chocolatier friend Matteo is the criminal or a victim of jealous family members. You'll definitely be able to smell the chocolate! Until next time! Carole
