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.

Sofia and Aidan Are Cute Investigators

Love the humor and banter between Sofia and Aidan although I started getting a bit tired of the glib comebacks. The story was interesting and the activities of the characters possible. The story worked and Fred the seagull was a hoot as usual. I was glad to see Sofia getting more involved and being able to work with Aidan and even cover for his lost drone. They make an interesting team of investigators BUT I keep hoping that it will turn into more between them but still it would cause a total reboot of the story since the searching of the perfect woman is what makes Aidan so cute. Anyway, I like these stories and will be waiting for the next episode. Malibu is a beautiful place and nirvana cove is somewhere I'd enjoy living.
