Presley Parker’s event-planning business is the toast of San Francisco. But when she ventures into Napa Valley to oversee her first wine tasting, an unexpected death could leave a stain on her reputation.…
For Presley Parker, a wine-tasting event at the boutique winery the Purple Grape is a job worth savoring. But she quickly discovers that, even in idyllic Napa Valley, local politics can have a bitter finish. JoAnne Douglas, president of the Green Grape Association environmental group, believes the wineries are damaging the local environment, and she’s determined to sabotage the event. But Presley manages to pull the party off without a hitch. Until JoAnne’s lifeless body is discovered under one of the tables….
JoAnne had plenty of enemies in the area, but all evidence points to Purple Grape owners Rob and Marie Christopher as the murderers. Now it’s up to Presley to clear their names before someone else gets corked.
Thanks to the publisher, I have one (1) copy of How to Dine on Killer Wine to give away.
