Through the Liquor Glass

 This is the 5th book in the Literary Pub series by Sarah Fox.  I am anxiously awaiting the next book now that I have finished Through the Liquor Glass.  I thoroughly enjoy the characters of Sadie and Grayson and enjoy how we see their relationship progressing as the series moves forward.  In this book, we see another personal relationship of Sadie's in detail when her mother comes to visit.  This visit sparks a range of emotions that I think many readers can relate to with their mothers.  Sadie wants her mother to be proud and approve of her choices since establishing her home in Shady Creek, Vt.  Unfortunately, the unexpected discovery of a body at Grayson's brewery makes the reunion a bit strained.  Sadie struggled to keep the situation from her mother in order to avoid clouding her opinion of her new boyfriend but secrets have a way of causing stress and revealing themselves.  

Overall this mystery is well written and has some side mysteries that fit within the plot line.  In fact, those side mysteries help to cast suspicion on several people, thus distracting Sadie from finding the real killer and clearing Grayson's name.   I cannot wait to read the next book to see what happens with Sadie and Grayson next.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book gave the reader a chance to see Sadie’s interactions with her mother. I think anyone who has ever sought their parent’s approval will relate to the trepidation Sadie was feeling about her visit. Unfortunately that visit became strained when Sadie had to coverup the reason for Grayson’s absence as well as her clandestine investigation into another murder. The story was well constructed and there were side mysteries that added to the suspicions surrounding the original murder. I really enjoyed this book and felt as though I was right there In Vermont investigating and celebrating with Sadie.
