Katie Stillwell focuses on two things in her life: work and practicing for her Sommelier Certification with her blind tasting group. The exam was supposed to be the hardest part of her week, but that was before a body was found at an exclusive Napa Valley winery party.

When all the evidence points to Katie’s best friend, the outspoken and independent Tessa, Katie drops everything to clear Tessa’s name. Using her deductive wine skills, she tries to track down the real killer. But when repeated attempts are made on her life, Katie discovers that everyone’s secrets must be uncorked―including her own.

Praise for the book:
I LOVED this book…ok, maybe because it has to do with wine and the wine country in California, but it was also a very engaging book with several twists and turns that I didn’t see coming…
~Storeybook Reviews
The mystery was really good as well as the characters… if you are a fan of cozies then you will like this one.
~Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh my!
This Debut will tickle your taste buds and a murder that will keep you guessing until the very end.
~Shelley’s Book Case
A highly enjoyable crime thriller set in the wine-lands of the Napa Valley.
~Jemima Pett, Author
I was not surprised to learn that the author herself is a certified sommelier. Her knowledge of wines and wineries is extensive, which comes through in the writing of the book, and makes it that much more interesting.
~Book Babble
…well written and engaging, and I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys wine and cozy mysteries…
~Tea and A Book
… that is what the reader takes away upon closing the cover of this excellent story, just how much the author’s love for her subject, her passion, shines through in her characters.
Decanting a Murder was both enjoyable & exciting to read.
~Back Porchervations
The plot included a few red herrings and twists, keeping the suspect list broad until the pieces fell together. All in all, an enjoyable cozy mystery.
