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

The Book:

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.
