When a former schoolmate invites flamboyant senior sleuth Sadie Kramer to a theatre production, she jumps at the excuse to visit the Monterey Bay area for a weekend. With quaint Carmel shops a short drive away and luxurious linens in her hotel accommodations, the excursion promises to be both entertaining and relaxing.
Plenty of action is expected on stage, but when the show's leading lady turns up dead, Sadie finds herself faced with more than one drama to follow. With both cast members and production crew as potential suspects, will Sadie and her sidekick Yorkie, Coco, be able to solve the case?

"Deborah Garner is gifted at bringing each character to life. She adds details seamlessly, making it seem like you know these people. She presents scenarios that have you thinking you know who did it, and then in the next sentence you are second guessing yourself. And that is to say, this is a great “who done it” … it gets 2 thumbs up from me :)" - reviews Tracy Helps You
"I love the way Deborah Garner describes everything in this book, and I can't wait to read more in this series! This book literally kept me guessing until the very end." - reviews Sanity is for those without children
"Deborah Garner has created a unique and very flamboyant main character who seems to find trouble all by herself and turns into an amateur sleuth!" - reviews Miki's Hope

A Flair for Chardonnay (A Sadie Kramer Flair Mystery Book 1)
When flamboyant senior sleuth Sadie Kramer learns the owner of Cioccolato, her favorite chocolate shop, is in trouble, she heads for the California wine country with a tote-bagged Yorkie and a slew of questions. The fourth generation Tremiato Winery promises answers, but not before a dead body turns up at the vintners’ scheduled Harvest Festival.
All four Tremiato siblings have possible motives, as well as a few peripheral acquaintances, but only one could be the guilty party. As Sadie juggles truffles, tips and turmoil, she’ll need to sort the grapes from the wrath in order to find the identity of the killer.

Sadie’s friend Roxie invited her to The Seaside Players Theatre to attend the latest performance. Sadie arrived a day early so she could also attend the rehearsal. Of course her little Yorkshire terrier Coco came along with her, even if he is hidden in a tote bag most of the time. The rehearsal goes off without a hitch and Sadie even gets to meet the cast and crew. Later that night a lead actor is murdered. The cast is shaken, but as always, the show must go on. And Sadie, with her sleuthing, is now in her element. If anyone can solve this murder, it will be Sadie, with a little help from her sidekick Coco.
Sadie is a trip! It’s hard to picture her with her flamboyant style, especially at her age. But, that’s what makes her so fascinating. Coco also has a style all her own. I could easily picture her in a Broadway show. These two always get into situations without even trying. It will be interesting seeing what they get into next.
