I am now four books into my alphabet challenge, still reading cosy mysteries. D is for Drink of Deadly Wine, A by Kate Charles. I hadn't realised that there were so many cosies on my shelf - until I checked my smrc reading list. However, not all 26 books are cosies, so there will be some variety in future posts.

With regard to the book, I had never come across the author before but I am glad I decided to read one of her books. I will, almost certainly, bread more of Kate Charles's books. This is a cosy mystery which is very well written. The characters are believable and the plot moves at a steady pace. I did not guess whodunit but the solution was credible. I had a lot of sympathy for Gabriel, David and Emily. Some of the minor characters veered very close to being caricatures but that does not spoil a good story. There was enough detail in the story to keep you engrossed and it was an easy read.
