Fall is in full swing in the picturesque New England town of Shady Creek, Vermont, and Sadie Coleman, owner of the literary-themed Inkwell pub, is serving up delicious food and drinks with a side of sleuthing in the latest Literary Pub Mystery from USA Today bestselling author Sarah Fox... Autumn brings a wonderland of color and atmosphere to Vermont. As the last leaves fall from the trees, the town is gearing up for a new festival: A Taste of Shady Creek. Pub proprietor Sadie Coleman is looking forward to visitors coming to sample her literary-themed cocktails. She's a little more wary about her mother's impending first visit. What if her mom doesn't like Sadie's adopted town--or her new boyfriend, Grayson Blake?
Those concerns are overshadowed when a food critic is found dead at Grayson's craft brewery, pinned under a barrel. Curiouser and curiouser--the victim is linked to Grayson's past as a private investigator, and all the evidence points to him as the killer. While Grayson lays low, Sadie starts some investigating of her own, diving down a rabbit hole of suspects. Was it a bad review that made the killer mad as a hatter? Or are there other motives at play? In between serving Kiss of the Cider Woman cocktails and book-minded bites to festival goers, Sadie is striving to clear Grayson's name. But it'll take more than a dash of ingenuity to prevent the festival from fizzing out completely--and stop a killer from downing another innocent life . . .
