It’s Oktoberfest in Pittsburgh, and brewpub owner Maxine “Max” O’Hara is prepping for a busy month at the Allegheny Brew House. To create the perfect atmosphere for the boozy celebration, Max hires an oompah band. But when one of the members from the band turns up dead, it’s up to Max to solve the murder before the festivities are ruined.

Adding to the brewing trouble, Candy, Max’s friend, is acting suspicious… Secrets from her past are fermenting under the surface, and Max must uncover the truth to prove her friend’s innocence. To make matters worse, Jake’s snooty ex-fiancée shows up in town for an art gallery opening, and she’ll be nothing but a barrel of trouble for Max.

My Review:
3.5 out of 5 stars

Wow!  This was a really suspenseful read.  This was my first book by this author and I was pleasantly surprised.  I’ll definitely be going back to read the previous books in this series.  Even with being new to this author and series, the characters were very well developed and I got a pretty good idea about who the characters were and everything.

The brewpub was a really neat idea for the setting of this series and I enjoyed reading about the process of making the beer.  I was a little confused at times and didn’t understand some of the terms that were used, but I’m completely clueless about that type of thing since I’m not a beer drinker and don’t know much about it.  I wish a little bit more time had been spent explaining the process, but that may have been done in the previous books.  I still was able to enjoy the book though.

I loved the characters in this book, especially Max and Jake.  They are absolutely perfect together and are so sweet.  I enjoyed reading about their relationship.  I also really loved all of Max’s friends.  She has a really great inner-circle.

The mystery kept me hooked from the start.  Just when I thought I was sure of what was going to happen, I turned out to be wrong!  Wow!  This book was definitely a page turner.
