Dying on the Vine
by Marla Cooper
Characters are great and glad to see them again in book 2.
~Babs Book Bistro
I really enjoyed the story and thought the author did an amazing job of developing her characters.
I think she blew the cozy world away with this series.
The mystery is well plotted and quite complex; there’s no way I could have figured out the murderer’s identity.
~The Power of Words
This was a fun read over spring break – enough action, quick pace, yet light and easy to follow.
~Christa Reads and Writes
…all the elements were blended together with a hand worthy of the tastiest Napa vintage. So add this one to your wine cellar – and your bookshelf.
This is a quick easy read, and the wine country setting was great fun to read about.
I read book one and liked it very much. I have to say book 2 is even better then book 1…
You won’t want to stop reading once you start. Add this one to your reading list, you will love it.
~Shelley’s Book Case
This is a refreshing read, to disconnect and enjoy a good time while the wedding of your dreams is prepared and guessing who could be the killer.
Definitely a great page turning mystery that you won’t be able to put down…
It is a fun tale and fans of cozy mysteries will really enjoy this.
I loved the ending of the story but I didn’t want this story to end. These have become some of my favorite cozy literary characters.

When wedding planner Kelsey McKenna goes to the Wine Country Wedding Faire, the last thing she expects to do is take on new clients. After all, she’s just there to help out her friend Brody and maybe score some free cupcakes. But when a young couple in a pinch asks for her help, she just can’t say no.
There’s only one problem: they’d been working with Babs Norton, the self-proclaimed Queen of Wine Country Weddings—and things did not end well. Kelsey wants to make sure there are no hard feelings, but unfortunately she never gets the chance. When she goes to Babs’ office, she finds the wedding planner dead on the floor.
Babs’ high-strung assistant Stefan knows exactly who killed Babs: Kelsey. At least, that’s what he very publicly accuses her of at Babs’ funeral. When Kelsey decides to do a little sleuthing to clear her name, she uncovers a myriad of secrets and lies. And when a second wedding planner is attacked, Kelsey begins to wonder if she might be next.
Set against the stunning backdrop of California wine country, Marla Cooper’s Dying on the Vine is a mystery brimming with gossip, wine, and, of course…murder.
