Itâ€™s the dead season in Leavenworth, Washington. The
throngs of Oktoberfest crowds have headed home, and the
charming Bavarian streets are quiet and calmâ€”momentarily.
Villagers use the reprieve to drink in the crisp fall
mountain air and prepare for the upcoming winter light
festival. Soon the German-inspired shops and restaurants
will be aglow with thousands of twinkling lights.
Visitors will return to the northern Cascades to drink
warm mulled cider and peruse the holiday markets. Brewer,
Sloan Krause and her partner in crime Garrett Strong are
using the slowdown to stock up on a new line of their
signature craft beers at Nitro. Theyâ€™re experimenting
with a hoppy holiday pine and a chocolate hazelnut stout.
The small brewery is alive with delicious scents and
bubbling batches of brew.
Sloan is in her element. She loves the creativity and
lowkey atmosphere at Nitro. Only that is soon threatened
by the incumbent city councilmember Kristopher Cooper.
Kristopher is running for re-election on a platform of
making Leavenworth dry. Everyone in beertopia is fuming.
Leavenworthâ€™s economy relies on keeping the kegs flowing.
Kristopher wants to banish beer, a policy that might just
bankrupt the entire village. However, Kristopher turns up
dead days before election night. Sloan quickly realizes
that his murder isnâ€™t the work of a stranger. Friends,
family, and every other business owner had a motive to
kill him, including none other than April Ablin,
Leavenworthâ€™s self-described ambassador of all things
German. Sloan finds herself defending April and trying to
sleuth out a killer amongst a group of familiar faces.
