Amateur sleuth Sloan Krause returns in The Pint of No Return, another delightful cozy by Ellie Alexander—this time investigating a movie star who's murdered not long after arriving in Leavenworth, WA to film his latest project.

No other festival compares to Oktoberfest in Leavenworth, Washington. The whole town is buzzing with excitement over this year’s activities and eagerly awaiting Nitro’s latest offering Cherrywizen, made with locally sourced cherries. But local brewmaster Sloan Krause is tapped out. Between trying to manage the pub, her pending divorce with Mac, and her mounting feelings for Garrett, she’s fermenting in internal turmoil.

To complicate matters, dreamy movie star Mitchell Morgan and his production crew have arrived in the village to film during the authentic Bavarian brewfest. Mitchell has his eye on Sloan and a taste for Nitro’s Cherrywizen. Sloan escapes his advances for good when she finds Mitchell slumped over the bar. Is this a case of one pint too many, or has Mitchell been murdered by microbrew?

The Pint of No Return is the second book in the Sloan Krause cozy mystery series. What I like about this series is that is revolves around brewing beer which is really original in my opinion. I can’t think of any other cozies that have this as the main attraction (besides the murder of course). Even more, the characters are pretty cool- very relaxed and laid back- and have a lot of “smarts” which seems to be missing from many cozies these days. So overall, it’s a great book. If you aren’t a beer drinker, no worries! You can learn a lot about the product and what it takes to actually brew it through this book. The author clearly did a lot of research in the area and now I feel like a beer connoisseur myself. 

Fans of cozy mysteries aren’t going to want to miss out on the latest Sloan Krause mystery! In this one, she is helping the local PD find the killer of a movie star who happened to be filming during Oktoberfest
