SUMMARY

It was the kind of invitation sommelier Katie Stillwell had only dreamed about: a dinner party at the Sonoma mansion of famed wine collector Paul Rafferty to celebrate a rare bottle. Everyone enjoys drinking the $19,000 wine, but Katie realizes it’s not the 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—it includes an accidental death that might just be murder. As Katie falls deeper into the world of counterfeit wine, she learns everything is at stake . . . even her life.

Praise:

"Fake wines, charity auctions, collector obsession, and a splash of romance enliven this blend. Nettmann, a certified sommelier, certainly knows her stuff."—Publishers Weekly

"Nearly every page sparkles with commentary about wine . . . Uncorking a Lie fills an appealing niche with its likable heroine and enticing, engaging world.” —ForeWord Reviews

"A good mystery with a limited group of suspects and unlimited wine lore."—Kirkus Reviews

"A good sophomore outing for a strong new series."—Mystery Scene

"The books are lively and breezy, well-plotted and heightened by danger."—Sonoma Index-Tribune

"Bright and delightful, Nadine Nettmann's latest Sommelier Mystery offers another intriguing foray into the elusive world of wine auctions, collections, and rare vintages. Featuring the charming and refined Katie Stillwell, Uncorking a Lie serves up an imaginative blend of quirky characters and curious clues, with dashes of danger and hints of romance. Should be opened and enjoyed immediately!"—Susanna Calkins, author of the award-winning Lucy Campion mysteries
