Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

To Brew or Not to Brew (Brewing Trouble, #1)

To Brew or Not to Brew - Joyce Tremel

A pretty good first and much more interesting than I thought it would be.  I raced through this one this morning without pausing for much more than a quick drink (iced tea).

 

Maxine O'Hara is opening her own craft brewhouse in Pittsburgh, after earning her brewmaster certification in Germany.  Someone keeps sabotaging her preparations though and finally has Max's full attention when they kill her assistant brewmaster.

 

Pretty good characters, decent setting and a decently plotted mystery; I figured out the murderer pretty quickly, but Tremel managed to mislead me for a few chapters.  No love triangle (yet) and almost no TSTL moments.

 

I'll definitely check out the second book.
