5.0 out of 5 stars Worth waiting for, leaves me hungry for more! May 26, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It was a long wait for the latest Sunny McCoskey Napa Valley Mystery, but Lethal Vintage turned out to be well worth the wait. Nadia Gordon has tightened up the writing, packing more characterization, plot, and context into this novel. It's really the best of the series (a nice change from the run-of-the mill series, which tend to decline in quality as they progress).
I am looking forward to the next one!

Warning: reading this book WILL make you hungry. And thirsty for a glass of a luscious red wine or, if it's morning, a splash of cab in your coffee!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nadia Gordon Batting 1000 May 10, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Nadia Gordon has again exceeded expectations for her richly written characters, producing a plot that is unlikely to be ferreted out early, and for exposing the vapid lives of her scurilous villians. It is great to read each successive novel as she expands the character of the friends surrounding Sonny. My kitchen is alive with the aromas of attempting to replicate some of the repasts you feel like you can actually smell as you read. I have yet to take more than 24 hours to read any book in the series including Lethal Vintage. Opening this novel is just like driving up the valley with a plan to find that perfect restaurant with the perfect wine match. I hope Nadia continues to entertain and expand my love of the Napa Valley and her charismatic characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read........... September 18, 2009
My book club had read "Death by the Glass and Sharpshooter" so when I found this book I was really excited. We loved both of these books and rated it as one of our top reads that year and "Lethal Vintage" is right up there, too. The author takes you to Napa to experience not only a mystery but what life is like in Napa Valley. I thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend this book for those who like mysteries and the experience of being in a beautiful place. I've been to Napa Valley many times and loved reading about those places. Enjoy is all I can say!!

3.0 out of 5 stars so so mystery August 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A decent mystery. Certainly can't hold a candle to Ellen Crosby's Middleburg Virginia wine murder mystery series but there is potential.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Read August 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is what I would call a grand summer read. I actually heard about the book on a Foodnetwork show: Giada at Home. Her bookclub had read it and she made some dishes based on meals talked about in the book. It's a fun read and a good murder mystery. I proceeded to read the other three books by this author in the Sunny McCoskey series. All very entertaining. Hope Ms. Gordon comes up with more stories for Sunny.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing April 3, 2014
By peas
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was the first of Nadia Gordon's books that I read. The other reviews gave it glowing reviews that is why I chose to read it.
I loved the setting, Napa Valley, which is one of the reasons I was so interested in this series. The story started out really great, but got a little boring and I had a hard time staying with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars The food and wine are fine, BUT... March 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This author lets philosophysing get in the way of her stories. Have read a couple books but will no more. Fair plotting but too many characters throwing in their two cents worth.

Convoluted - to many characters to sort out and many different wines described not needed. I lost the train of thought often.
