Review: Death on Tap
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book or my review itself.
Title: Death on Tap
Author: Ellie Alexander
Publication Date: October 3, 2017
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Recommended If You Like: strong female protagonists, learning about breweries, small town settings
Sloan feels shattered after catching her husband with another woman. Working hard to pick up the pieces, she finds work at the new brewery in town, only to find a dead body in the fermenting tub. When her husband is accused, and her new work place threatened, Sloan is determined to solve the mystery.
What I Liked:
Sloan is a great character-she's strong, smart, and really good at brewing. I really liked her relationships with her son, her in-laws, and her new boss.
The mystery was an intriguing one as well. There were a lot of interesting suspects, and a lot of twists and turns. The way the brewing process was integrated and explained really added to the story.
Anything I Didn't Like?
The ending seemed a little rushed. The solution to the mystery made sense, and was intriguing, but I wanted a little more time spent on it.
I'm excited for this new series-Sloan is a character I look forward to following in more mysteries to come.
