It was the kind of invitation Katie Stillwell had only dreamed about: a dinner party at the Sonoma mansion of famed wine collector Paul Rafferty to celebrate a rare bottle of wine. Everyone enjoys drinking the $19,000 wine, but Katie realizes it’s not the older vintage listed on the label. When she confides in Mr. Rafferty, he asks her to investigate, and she soon discovers the deception goes beyond money. As Katie falls deeper into the world of counterfeit wine, she learns everything is at stake―even her life.
Having read the first book in this series, I enjoyed getting reacquainted with Katie. She is a dedicated wine lover, who seeks to advance to the highest level of sommelier accreditation. And she is smart and determined in her pursuit of the truth about the wine and the suspicious death of a friend. At the same time, she is impulsive and somewhat reckless. The underlying plot is engaging, with multiple suspects and a plot that comes together nicely in the end. A pleasant read, easily enjoyed by lovers of wine and mystery.
