Book Description

Brew pub owner Maxine “Max” O’Hara and her chef/boyfriend Jake Lambert are excited to be participating in the Three Rivers Brews and Burgers Festival. Max hopes to win the coveted Golden Stein for best craft beer—but even if she doesn’t, the festival will be great publicity for her Allegheny Brew House.

Or will it? When notoriously nasty food and beverage critic Reginald Mobley is drafted as a last-minute replacement judge, Max dreads a punishing review. Her fears are confirmed when Mobley literally spits out her beer, but things get even worse when the cranky critic drops dead right after trying one of Jake’s burgers. Now an ambitious new police detective is determined to pin Mobley’s murder on Max and Jake, who must pore over the clues to protect their freedom and reputations—and to find the self-appointed judge, jury, and executioner.

About the Author

Joyce Tremel was a police secretary for ten years and more than once envisioned the demise of certain co-workers, but settled on writing as a way to keep herself out of jail. She is a native Pittsburgher and lives in a suburb of the city with her husband and a spoiled cat.

Her debut mystery, To Brew Or Not To Brew has been nominated for the 2015 Reviewers’ Choice award for best amateur sleuth by RT Book Reviews. The second book in the series, Tangled Up In Brew is scheduled for release in October 2016.

My Review

Tangled Up in Brew is the second book in the Brewing Trouble series by author Joyce Tremel. This is the first book of Joyce's that I have read.

Great idea to set a cozy series in a brew pub.  They are hugely popular right now and I'm sure most people can relate to the setting. I liked the setting of Pittsburgh as well. I have never been there.

The brew pub owner, Maxine "Max", and her boyfriend and chef Jake who is a former pro hockey player are excited about the Three Rivers Brews and Burgers Festival. This is the perfect opportunity to show off Max's brews and Jake's cooking skills. At the last minute, local mean food critic Reginald Mobley fills in as a judge. He has earned a lot of enemies over the years panning everyone's food and beverages. But of course the last people he criticizes are Max and Jake. And he drops dead right after eating a burger of Jake's. 

Max needs to clear both her and Jake's names. Due to Reginald's nastiness there are plenty of other suspects.  

Good cozy mystery. There are recipes at the end.
