Till Death Do Us Port: 03/27/23
Till Death Do Us Port by Kate Lansing and Brooke Hoover (Narrator) (2023) is the fourth book in the Colorado Wine mystery series. Parker Valentine is at her cousin, Emma's wedding. She's helping cat wrangle and she's hoping to get her winery into the wedding business.
From the very start of the big day, things are clearly off. The wedding coordinator fires the caterer. Emma is clearly unhappy and overwhelmed. The cat doesn't want to participate. And then there's a scream and the wedding coordinator is dead.
Wedding themed mysteries are always hit or miss. At least this time none of the immediate wedding party ended up dead. Thankfully too, Parker doesn't spend the majority of the book waxing poetic about marriage. I did appreciate her eagerness to use the wedding industry to expand her business.
Till Death Do Us Port is one of the rare mysteries where I remained clueless to the identity of the killer until Parker figured it out. Part of that stems from information being kept from Parker and thus the reader until nearly the end. If the key detail was mentioned earlier, I completely missed it.
