Publisher's Summary

Roll up your pant legs and bare your feet, there are barrels of grapes to crush in this hilarious fourth installment of the Malibu mystery series.
Maloney Investigation's new client? An eccentric vineyard owner convinced his even more eccentric neighbor is siphoning off his precious water. But of course it's not as simple as that. Or as dignified.
Sofia and Aidan soon find out these Merlot messiahs are turning water into wacky, plowing more than fields, and sowing more than grapes. But there's no putting the cork back in when the opposing vintner turns up naked and face down in a trough of sour grapes. Can Sofia and Aidan clear their client and unmask the killer? Or will they, too, perish in the Pinot Noir?

D is for Delectable!

I really liked this light read. The story revolves around a a murder but I didn’t feel weighed down by the listening experience. Tense, edge of your seat thrillers are great for an adrenaline rush, but having a pleasant, laughable experience is better for the spirit. The humor was clever and witty without relying on slapstick silliness, cheap sexual references, or out-and-out stupidity. Levity is inserted in the narrative in such a way to maximize appreciation. The obvious romantic tension between the two unsuspecting protagonists is, in itself, a hoot (albeit a tad bit frustrating).

Still, the story is a "who-done-it", and although I figured it out one of primary mysteries, there were enough other surprises to keep me going and guessing wrong, wrong, wrong! (Really fun way to fail.)

Just a note: I started the series with this second installment. Authors Rebecca Cantrell and Sean Black did a terrific job of keeping the story relatively independent from the first installment and seamlessly backfilling details that would have otherwise left gaps.

Madeline Mrozek’s upbeat tone and energetic pace matched the words, their context, and what I believed was the authors' intent. Her voice kind of reminds me of Samantha of the original “Bewitched” from back in the day. “Bewitch” was one of my favorites so, for me, this is a good thing (I’m not old, I’m just a rerun hound…. yeah. :-) ...)

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review. Thanks AudioBlast.

The best!

This installment was the best in the series. The mystery is more captivating. Sofia skills have developed to a new level. There is still the playful banter between her and Aidan. For once she is not caught in a uncompromising situation. Her family are only in for only a few minutes. If you have enjoyed the series, you must read this one.
