Agatha Award Best First Book (nominee)
Can Katie Solve a Case of Chateau Murdeaux? Katie Stillwell focuses on two things in her life: work and practicing for Sommelier Certification with her blind tasting group. The exam was supposed to be the hardest part of her week, but that was before a body was found at an exclusive Napa Valley winery party.
When all the evidence points to Katie's best friend, the outspoken and independent Tessa, Katie drops everything to clear Tessa's name. Using her deductive wine skills, she tries to track down the real killer. But when repeated attempts are made on her life, Katie discovers that everyone's secrets must be uncovered--including her own.

Praise:

"Filled with amusing characters, snappy dialogue and delicious wine pairings, this mystery delivers a fast, sophisticated ride with just enough twists and turns to keep readers guessing until the final confrontation." - RT Book Reviews (****)

"This debut mystery has a sympathetic main character with secrets in her past, well-drawn secondary characters, a possible love interest, and fascinating detail on wine, wineries, and wine making skillfully woven through the story." - Booklist

"Nettmann's lead character Katie Stillwell, aka 'The Palate', as an amateur sleuth is a perfect pairing in this intricately crafted sommelier mystery. At turns fascinating and suspenseful, I was thoroughly captivated by the story and enjoyed every turn of the page. Uncork me another!"--Jenn McKinlay, New York Times bestselling author

"The quiet hillsides and vineyards of California's famed Napa Valley have produced many famous vintages over the years, and first-time mystery author Nettmann knows this territory well . . . The first in a very promising series."--Brendan DuBois, a multiple award-winning author and a three-time Edgar nominee
