First Line

When bottles of wine are sold for large amounts of money, they end up in the news.

Here is what I thought

Though I have not a clue about wine I find this series very interesting as it always talking about it. Maybe I will learn something about wine but I doubt it…lol.

Katie is a sommelier at Trentino’s and when an acquaintance of hers buys a bottle of wine for 19,000 he invites her and some of his other friends to enjoy his bottle. Katie can tell that something is not right with the wine and that it could be a fake but doesn’t want to hurt her host feelings so tries to keep it quiet but Cooper (Paul’s assistant) gets the information out of her and decides to investigate in the wine cellar and never comes back. Katie goes and finds him at the bottom of the stairs. He dies from the fall but it seems suspicious to Katie.

When Katie tells Paul about her suspicion about the wine he wants to hire her to look into the matter. He wants to know who might have sold him a counterfeit. There were a lot of good suspects and it had a good mystery.

Katie is a good character and she has anxiety problems. She wants to be a master sommelier but she some times freezes when doing blind tasting, she works with a group of sommelier trying to get better but some times she second guesses herself. She seems to have relationship fears as well because she has a nice guy who wants to get to know her but she put him off and he quit calling but then with this case he is back in her life, so I am hoping she can find a happy medium somewhere.

Overall, it was another good installment in the Sommelier mysteries.
