Uncorking A Lie
by Nadine Nettmann
I was not surprised to learn that the author herself is a certified sommelier. Her knowledge of wines and wineries is extensive, which comes through in the writing of the book, and makes it that much more interesting.
It was engaging and captivating from the very start.

Like fine wine, the Sommelier Mystery series gets better with age. This second entry is crisp and clean delivering a well executed mystery.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
I love when I can learn something while reading for fun and I learned about wines and a bit about the wine business and wine stewards, while enjoying a well-done mystery.

...it was another good installment in the Sommelier mysteries.
~Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh my!
This was a fun and interesting read for me giving me a chance to know a little more about wine and it’s intrigue. I was fascinated with the world of the Sommelier and wine tasters.
~My Reading Journeys
The underlying plot is engaging, with multiple suspects and a plot that comes together nicely in the end. A pleasant read, easily enjoyed by lovers of wine and mystery.
This is one of those books that you have so many suspects and that everyone has something to hide that you will keep guessing till the end!
Uncorking a Lie is an easy, clueful crime mystery, and I finished it in one sitting.

It was the kind of invitation Katie Stillwell had only dreamed about: a dinner party at the Sonoma mansion of famed wine collector Paul Rafferty to celebrate a rare bottle of wine. Everyone enjoys drinking the $19,000 wine, but Katie realizes it’s not the older vintage listed on the label. When she confides in Mr. Rafferty, he asks her to investigate, and she soon discovers the deception goes beyond money. As Katie falls deeper into the world of counterfeit wine, she learns everything is at stake—even her life.

What a great concept with your background.
Thank you so much!
This book sounds like an amazing read. I wonder what a $19,000 bottle of wine tastes like.
Am really looking forward to reading this book. Learning about wine while enjoying a good read. and from a different perspective. I know something from the medical standpoint. And a very limited knowledge from the cooking standpoint. From the medical standpoint was when my 4 yr old had a respiratory infection that would not go away. After a couple of months Dr Bader wanted to talk about hospitalization. While I waited in his office noticed a new medical journal on his desk.so started reading. Two studies had been done at 2 hospitals with respiratory and heart patients. Experimentation found that both conditions could be overcome with a good quality fruity red wine, 3 ounces at bedtime. The patient recovered from heart surgery faster, with far less complications, side effects than when drugs were used. Same with respiratory patients. So he wanted to know if I wanted to try that before we took more ‘drastic’ measures, i.e hospital and tests. Within about 5 days there was a definite improvement. My son has almost never been sick since then. And that was 40 years ago. The reason wine is not used today? It’s not cost effective. Meaning they make a lot more money off the drugs than they would with the wine. I remember Dr Bader saying it should be about health and well being. Not money. And I quite agree. I am really looking forward to learn gin some more about wine. From a different view point. Do hope this will be a sooner, rather than later read
I’ve never been a big wine drinker. This story sounds interesting.
Raised in Nap and a Italian papa, I love reading any book that has wine and food. Read book1.
Only drink wine when eating with family on Holidays. This is a must read for us.
Looks like a fun book! Thanks for the contest!
I just have to find out what happened to the real $19,000 bottle of wine! Just how do they value these wines anyway?
This looks like such a fun read! I love a good mystery.
