Summary

Summary

Sunny McCoskey is the independent chef/owner of Wildside, a little cafe nestled in Napa Valley, where the food is exactly right. When the heir apparent to a major vineyard is shot dead, and Sunny's eccentric winemaker friend, Wade, is arrested for the murder, she launches her own investigation. The solution lies in the tangled personalities and politics of the wine industry, and in the threat posed to the valley by the glassy-winged sharpshooter. Set in a region renowned for its food and wine, Sharpshooter launches an entertaining mystery series featuring Sunny and an engaging cast of wine professionals, cooks, socialites-and suspects.

Publisher's Weekly Review

The scion of a wine family is found murdered; chef Sunny McCoskey's friend Wade Skord is a prime suspect; and the glassy-winged sharpshooter (an insect) is threatening Napa Valley produce, not to mention Sunny's organic restaurant, in Sharp Shooter, Nadia Gordon's tale of land fever and love gone bad in the promised land. The personable McCoskey navigates wine country denizens and six-burner stoves with equal aplomb, and foodies and oenophiles especially will enjoy Gordon's blend of solid suspense and gourmet culture.
