About the Author
C. T. Collier grew up in Seneca Falls, NY, left the area for college and jobs, but always wanted to return to the Finger Lakes. Today she lives in a beautiful small city on one of the prettiest of the Finger Lakes, not unlike fictional Tompkins Falls on lovely Chestnut Lake. Most days you’ll find her writing in her tiny office looking out on a woods populated with fox, deer, wild turkeys, and songbirds. In her career as a tech-savvy college professor she has been endlessly fascinated with campus intrigue. Entirely fictional, Tompkins College is no college and every college.

This is the third book in the series, though the first I've read. It was easy enough to pick up, though, and despite the great number of supporting characters, I never felt lost. The Penningtons are enjoyable enough to read along with, and the plot provides enough twists to not be predictable. I liked the academic setting but how the characters had their own lives outside of their jobs.
The theme for the series seems to revolve around Lyssa's AA membership, and there is talk of former abuse of drugs and alcohol. I know that can be upsetting to some people, but I do feel like the topic is handled in a respectful manner.
Overall, I would recommend this book.
The main story takes place on a college campus with plenty of rivalries and academic political confrontations and disagreements. When a department chair is found dead and a replacement must be assigned in short order, tensions run high. Secrets are revealed. Friendships and loyalties are tested.
An intense read with plenty of surprises.
This review is my own opinion.
As the college is looking to replace Marguerite’s position, Lyssa is in charge of this mission. As part of the process, they hold a dinner with one of the candidates, Emile Duval. At this dinner, a bottle of wine and card are sent special for Duval. He takes a sip and suddenly Lyssa is tasked with investigating two murders. This all happens within the first quarter of the book!
The twists in this story are great and kept me on my toes! I could not put the last half of this book down! I wanted to know what was going to happen next and how the murders are solved!
Before reading, I did not realize this was the third book in a series. That would explain the lack of character development, my only main flaw in this story. I had trouble keeping the characters straight and following their stories. However, that is easily explained by the fact that this is the third book in the series and I imagine the characters are developed in the first two books.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair review.

As a life-long resident of the Finger Lakes I enjoyed this story set in the surrounding area. Though Tompkins Falls is a fictional town Collier has capture the ambiance of the beloved area I call home!
Sipped is the 3rd book in the series and was easy to read and catch
on to the story and plot. There was no read to prior books.
I wasn't so much a fan of the academia (gasp) aspect but that is just me. My sister would have loved it.
The story/plot is well written and keeps the reader interested through the twists and turns and locale(s).
The author does an excellent job of taking some hard topics such as alcoholism and a few other adult topics and handles them in a classy way.
For me though I just didn't enjoy the plot.
I received a complimentary copy.
