This book was interesting, but a little repetitive after the initial suspense in the beginning. I also found it really predictable.

I will have to reread this after I read the first book in the series. I enjoyed the juxtaposition of a vineyard with a Shakespeare theater. Is there really such a thing?
Official disclosure: I got this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. Thanks!

Sour Grapes wasn't bad, but it was just okay. It took a long plane ride for me to finally get through this, and not because it's particularly long. It's because I just didn't care enough about Cait. Some of this may be because I didn't realize this was the second book in a series until I started reading it, so I'll assume that the missing pieces in relationships were due to my missing previous plot points.

Really enjoyed this book and now I'll have to get Twisted Vines to see what I missed. Cait is an ex-cop who has inherited a Vineyard/Theater in Livermore, CA. A security alarm wakes her in the middle of the night, and the next day a Shakespearean weapon is discovered outside of her home. Cait recognized it as the weapon that was recovered from Hank Dillon, a bank robber she had shot and killed when she was an Ohio policewoman. Between coordinating the play she is currently running at her theater ...more

I read the first Shakespeare in the Vineyard books when I was searching the new books section in the library for something different, and I loved it. This, her second book, is not as good as her first, but it's still an enjoyable mystery. Cait is adjusting to her new life, but her old one comes back to haunt her.

It was excellent book. At one point, I thought all of the characters could have done.
But there is one mystery left, who was Cait's father. I guess we will never know.

The plot of Carole Price's first novel, "Twisted Vines", thickens as Cait and R.T. face imminent danger and the threat of closing Cait's Shakespearean Theater. Again, with painstaking detail, the author weaves a story that captivates the reader.
"Sour Grapes" is an entertaining page-turner.
