Synopsis from Goodreads: When Parker Valentine decides to take a weekend getaway with her boyfriend Reid, a ski trip seems like the perfect choice. Between hitting the slopes and persuading the resort's wine director to sell her mulled wine, Parker is eager to mix business with pleasure. But her plans are muddled when she finds the resort owner's body on a treacherous portion of ski trail near the resort.
As a result, not only is Parker's romantic weekend thrown into chaos, but now that the owner has died, her business deal is due for a frosty reception, and her life might be in danger as well. After a series of unfortunate mishaps befall Parker, she realizes that whoever killed the resort owner might want to tie up loose ends. Parker's going to need all of the investigative skills at her disposal to catch a killer before they put her on ice.
My Review: Another great addition to the series. I really enjoyed the fresh setting and all of the side characters. I was happy to see more of Parker's brother and her best friend as they are great characters. I also really enjoyed seeing more development of Parker and Reid's relationship, though her insistence on solving the mystery and not spending time with him was frustrating. The mystery was well done but not quite as good as the first two books. I think anyone who enjoys cozy mysteries will like this, especially people who enjoy wine and unique recipes.
