This book is a very well-written mystery that kept my attention and most of all kept me guessing throughout the story. I absolutely loved this novel! It encompassed my favourite things: wine, chocolate, and mystery. The intertwined erroneous relationships of the family and its business will keep you guessing who the murderer is until the very end. It was riddled with suspects.
Sadie was a fantastic character! She was trying to help solve this mystery in order to help her friend Matteo, who she did not believe could ever commit such a crime. Considering the dysfunctional dynamics of Matteo’s family & business, everyone was suspect.
Love the writing style of the author. I would highly recommend her work!
My rating: 5/5

Opinion expressed is my own.
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.
