Mulled to Death: 12/10/21

Mulled to Death

Mulled to Death by Kate Lansing and Brooke Hoover (Narrator) is the third book in the Colorado Wine mystery series. Parker Valentine is spending Valentine's weekend with her boyfriend, brother, and BFF at a ski resort. She's there to sell her wine along with a mulled wine recipe. She's not there to solve another murder.

But that's exactly what happens. When a ski run turns to tragedy, Parker was in the right (or wrong) place at the right (or wrong) time to hear and see details that others missed. The death of the ski resort's founder and owner also means that Parker's trip won't result in those hoped for sales.

Mulled to Death with its setting at a ski resort during a storm gives the book a strong sense of place and a limited number of possible suspects. It's essentially a locked room mystery but on a larger scale. It makes for a compelling read with a satisfying ending.

I happened to listen to this mystery while scanning old slides from a family trip through Colorado. The audiobook made the perfect pairing for the task at hand.

Five stars
