Guest Author New Release: Uncorking a Lie

Happy release day to my FF BFF!

I realize wine mysteries aren’t exactly YA, but how can I not tell you about Nadine’s newest book? I was fortunate enough to read an early edition of this and it’s even better than the first! I never knew counterfeit wine was even a thing, but Nadine not only shows us the underbelly of the wine world, she keeps us thirsting for more.

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

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.
