Murder Alfresco
fullDescription
Returning from a party late one night, chef Sunny McCoskey is the first to discover the body of a murdered woman left outside a local winery, and she may even have witnessed the killer driving away.
Thrust into the center of a crime that has rattled the tranquil Napa Valley, Sunny pursues her own investigation, a journey that takes her from Northern California's wine country to the insular houseboat community along the San Francisco Bay. Uncovering a tangle of secret liaisons, Sunny closes in on the murderer, who responds with one more desperate act.
With Murder Alfresco, author Nadia Gordon again takes us into the heart of the food and wine culture of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, and introduces us to an array of irreverent characters. As the Los Angeles Times said, "Sunny is a welcome, energetic heroine. . . . She and her pals are fun to be around."

        May 1, 2005
        On her way home from a late-night party, chef Sunny McCoskey sees a corpse hanging from a tree at one of Napa Valley's premier wineries. Since she may have seen the murderer drive off, and the murderer may have seen her, Sunny is concerned for her personal safety. The police consider her a material witness and caution her not to discuss the case, but she cannot resist a little independent investigating. With the help of her eclectic group of cooks and vintners, she ignores the danger and mucks about among the wine country's high society and the colorful community of houseboat dwellers in Sausalito. Readers will turn pages quickly as they long for a glass of chardonnay and a meal at the Wildwood Cafe. Recommend this thoroughly engaging series--" Murder Alfresco "was preceded by " Sharpshooter "(2001) and " Death by the Glass" (2003)--to fans of the movie " Sideways."(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2005, American Library Association.)
