Killer Chardonnay Book Review ~ Cute, Quick and Cozy

I picked this book up for a buddy read in November and really enjoyed it. Killer Chardonnay is a light read; a perfect palate cleanser between tense or heavy books. It belongs to a niche subgenre of crime fiction called cozy mysteries or “cozies.”

Book Review

Killer Chardonnay


Parker’s grand opening went viral- for all the wrong reasons. A locally renowned food reviewer is found dead after drinking one of her Chardonnays. The only way to save her business is to solve this crime and absolve her wine. 

I wish our protagonist Parker was a deeper character and that she had more involvement in the solving side of the mystery. I found this plot transparent, peppered with some forced writing- some of the analogies of people to wine were just terrible. But the story line is easy to follow and fast paced with a good serving of romance. There is definitely potential for growth and the sequel will be released in January.  A cute read for lovers of wine and or Colorado, Boulder in general. Great for when you need a lightweight read that you don’t have to think too deeply about. 

Audiobook Review Brooke Hoover did a great job with narrating. She fit the character well and did a nice job of differentiating characters.
