Brew pub owner Maxine “Max” O’Hara is getting ready to celebrate Oktoberfest in a big way in her pub, by going all out with a 'oompah' band. But before she signs off on the band, she and friends go to see the band play. Unfortunately, the night ends with a snag when a mistaken identity turns Candy's attitude sour. However, it looks like Candy may be hiding something when a body turns up dead and Candy isn't offering up any information about her past and why she is interested in the deceased.

I have been in love with this series from the very first brew filled page of the first book and this book is no different. I knew that when I started this book I wasn't going to be able to put it down, and I was right. This mystery sucked me in and didn't let go until I finished the last page of bubble-filled mystery and suspense. And boy-oh-boy is this mystery a good one; full of twists and turns, it had me guessing right up until the end...and I was still wrong!

The characters in this series are so realistic and fun. I love the relationship between Max and Jake. They can stand on their own as intriguing, but put them together and there is a special chemistry that starts to bubble and brew and I have loved seeing their relationship deepen. The entire cast of supporting characters each bring a unique ingredient to the story as well, making the story a good mash.

The mystery will have you guessing right up until the end and the beer and food will have you drooling all the way through. Don't miss out on the mouth-watering recipes in the back of the book to help satisfy your growling belly!
