Read A Case of Syrah, Syrah (A Wine Country Mystery #1) Online Free - Taylor O’Brian is a new businesswoman, founder of “Taylor’s Off The Beaten Path Wine Tours,” who lives on a small winery with her Aunt Jemma. She plans to take small groups around romantic Sonoma county to discover some of the county’s outdoor gardens. It’s all running as smooth as can be until Laura, the leader of the group of yoga instructors she’s leading, is found dead. And it’s Taylor’s corkscrew that’s found buried in Laura’s neck.
She’s not sure who to trust, and everyone around suddenly seems suspect. Only two weeks after the murder, her very own administrative assistant, Amy, marries Laura’s husband, Dan, who doesn’t seem very bereaved about being widowed, and the three yoga masters who were also out on the tour begin to seem shady. Taylor can’t afford to jump ship from her new business endeavor, but just as she begins her investigation, another dead body surfaces. This time, it’s Dan’s sister. And the killer is coming for Taylor next.
Now it’s up to Taylor to uncork this open-bottle mystery, before more blood is spilled. For fans of Laura Childs and Ellen Crosby, A Case of Syrah, Syrah is the charming first in bestselling author Nancy J. Parra’s Wine Country mysteries.

Winery mystery - TASTY! If only it was possible to Skype a glass. Taylor has recently moved back to Albuquerque to be near her Aunt Jemma.

A new series featuring California wine county. A fast-moving and easy to read cozy mystery. I felt the characters were not well developed and the author has not done a lot of research on the subject. The plot has been used often. There is a dog and cat but they are not really involved in the stor...

**I voluntarily read this ARC**
I really wanted to like this book more than I did. I loved the mystery, I just couldn't handle Taylor. I found her to be annoying and a bit obnoxious. I did love how delightfully quirky some of the minor characters were.

I quite liked Taylor, the amateur sleuth, who runs a California wine country tour in between showing guests around her aunt's boutique vineyard. The account is nicely modern with people tweeting their trip and photos.
The body count is implausibly high but a good point is that many different char...
