A Deadly Draught
Microbrewing Mystery Series, Book 1eBook - 2011
Money is always a problem for Hera Knightsbridge's microbrewery, but now drought makes water scarce for all the breweries in the Butternut Valley. Worse, Hera discovers a rival brewer murdered in his brew barn, making Hera the authorities' favorite suspect. To clear her name, her only choice is to join forces with an unlikely partner, the new assistant deputy sheriff, Jake Ryan, her former lover from law school days. There's unfinished business between these two, and it surfaces again and again as they pursue a killer who finally turns on the indefatigable Hera as the next victim.
This is the first book in the Microbrewing Mystery Series. The second book is Poisoned Pairings which continues the Hera Knightsbridge story.
