Raise A Glass to Death on Tap
I love everything Ellie Alexander writes. Her Bakeshop Mystery Series is one of my favorites. So when I heard she had a new series coming out, I couldn’t wait to dive in!
Death on Tap is the first book in the Sloan Krause Mystery Series. Sloan is at a crossroads after finding a dead body at the brewery she just started working for. And worse, her estranged husband is the prime suspect. Can she clear his name and bring the true killer to justice?
Just like a good beer, you’ll want to savor this one because it will be gone all too fast. Here are my top reasons to read this book.
A Great Protagonist
I love that Sloan is a little more mature than some protagonists. She is at a crossroads in life, which is a topic that makes her easy to identify with. She also has a teenage son, who adds a fun element to her personality and the story overall.
Sloan was a product of the foster care system and this makes her fiercely loyal to the only family she’s even known – the one she married into. No matter what her feelings towards her husband may be at the moment (you’ll have to read to see what trouble he gets himself into), family is family and you stick together no matter what.
Food & Beer
Ellie is the only author whose books sit next to my cookbooks in the kitchen because I make certain recipes from them on a regular basis. Her chocolate molasses cookies from Caught Bread Handed are the best and get compliments every time! In Death on Tap, Ellie infuses beer into her mouth watering recipes. She does it in such creative ways my mouth was watering throughout the entire book!
So Raise Your Glass
And join me in toasting Ellie Alexander on a great new series. This book had me hooked and I can’t wait to see where Sloan’s adventures take her next.
