Another intoxicating mystery featuring brew pub owner Maxine “Max” O’Hara—from the author of To Brew or Not to Brew.
BEER TODAY, GONE TOMORROW…
Brew pub owner Maxine “Max” O’Hara and her chef/boyfriend, Jake Lambert, are excited to be participating in the Three Rivers Brews and Burgers Festival. Max hopes to win the coveted Golden Stein for best craft beer—but even if she doesn’t, the festival will be great publicity for her Allegheny Brew House.
Or will it? When notoriously nasty food and beverage critic Reginald Mobley is drafted as a last-minute replacement judge, Max dreads a punishing review. Her fears are confirmed when Mobley literally spits out her beer, but things get even worse when the cranky critic drops dead right after trying one of Jake’s burgers. Now an ambitious new police detective is determined to pin Mobley’s murder on Max and Jake, who must pore over the clues to protect their freedom and reputations—and to find the self-appointed judge, jury, and executioner.
It 's a really funny mystery, intriguing and engaging with two protagonists really special. Maxine is the Brew pub owner and works with her boyfriend Jake, complement each other and together they form an unbeatable team: she is the specialist of the beer and he was a great cook. The perfect opportunity to show off their talent is Three Rivers Brews and Burgers Festival. But one of the judges considers horrendous Max's beers and then dies while eating a Jake's hamburger. Obviously he is one of the main suspects. The characters are warm, lovable and believable, are all like people you know. The story is well written, flowing, with many twists. The plot kept me on edge from start to finish. I was excited each time I got to turn the page. Very interesting information on the production of beer and recipes at the end of the book. If you love cozy mystery and beer-based parties try to read this story
