“If your knowledge of wine falls into three categories --- white, red and rose --- then you’re in for a treat with reading Nadine Nettmann’s impressive debut novel, ‘Decanting a Murder.’ The quiet hillsides and vineyards of California's famed Napa Valley have produced many famous vintages over the years, and first-time mystery author Nettmann knows this territory well . . . The first in a very promising series."―Brendan DuBois, a multiple award-winning author and a three-time Edgar nominee

Katie Stillwell focuses on two things in her life: work and practicing for her Sommelier Certification with her blind tasting group. The exam was supposed to be the hardest part of her week, but that was before a body was found at an exclusive Napa Valley winery party.
When all the evidence points to Katie’s best friend, the outspoken and independent Tessa, Katie drops everything to clear Tessa’s name. Using her deductive wine skills, she tries to track down the real killer. But when repeated attempts are made on her life, Katie discovers that everyone’s secrets must be uncorked―including her own.
I LOVED this book…ok, maybe because it has to do with wine and the wine country in California, but it was also a very engaging book with several twists and turns that I didn’t see coming… ~Storeybook Reviews
This Debut will tickle your taste buds and a murder that will keep you guessing until the very end. ~Shelley’s Book Case
The mystery was really good as well as the characters… if you are a fan of cozies then you will like this one. ~Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh my!
