A Flair for Chardonnay – 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.

A Flair for Chardonnay is my first introduction to Sadie Kramer. I definitely love her flair and her sleuthing capabilities.

Set in two of my favorite places in the US – San Francisco and Napa Valley wine country – I liked the story right away. Combine that with the fact that it was only a few pages before the killer was revealed in the book that I figured the mystery out and I think the combination of wine and mystery is perfect.

I pick up books each May for easy reading over the warm summer evenings. I like to sit outside with a glass of wine or of craft beer and read as the sun sets. This book would easily make the list of those I want with me for this summertime activity. I’m looking to pick up a couple more Sadie Kramer books – I certainly hope there are a couple more – for just this purpose.

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
