About the book...
In a cozy mystery filled with natural cures and edible plants that you will love, an organic winery becomes the backdrop for murder! Fortunately, solving crimes comes naturally to charmingly unconventional amateur sleuth and holistic doctor, Willow McQuade, as she looks for clues that will reveal a killer’s true vintage.

Business is blooming at Nature’s Way Market & Café, and shop owner, holistic doctor, and amateur sleuth, Willow McQuade has never been happier. Her new medicinal herb garden is a hit, so is her new book, she’s in love with ex-cop and animal rescuer Jackson Spade, and enjoying teaching seminars about edible plants and natural remedies.

But everything changes when Willow’s old boyfriend and TV producer, Simon Lewis, winemaker David Farmer, and his wife Ivy, ask her to cater a party at Pure, their new organic vineyard, to kick off North Fork’s Uncorked! week and the competition for Wine Lovers magazine’s $200,000 prize. Pure’s entry, Falling Leaves, is the favorite to win, and the wine flows freely until after Simon’s toast when smiles give way to looks of horror. Ivy’s twin sister, Amy has been murdered! Turns out, the poison that killed her was actually meant for David. But who wants him dead? A rival vintner? Or someone closer to home? This time the truth may be a bitter vintage

It's snot funny!: Who's the Grossest of Them All? by Susan McElroy Montanari

Hi guys and gals!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

I don't know about you, but life has been WAY TOO BUSY here recently, or more specifically, work life.  Funny how that happens ANY TIME you take an extra day or two off, no?  *shakes head*  Well, between the drama with staffing, building issues, and an upcoming certification test that I have to study for, finding time to read for fun has been at a premium, but even more scarce has been time to blog.  When I finally have a second to sit down, I'm forgive the tinge of bloggy silence.  Anywho...

Today, we're shining the spotlight on a title that celebrated it's bookish birthday earlier this month with much pizzaz and finesse.  *smirk*  Okay, well there was definitely SOMETHING different about it that made it an arrival to remember, and I intend to bring that not-so-hidden sparkle to the forefront today.  Ladies and gents, kids of all ages, cast your manners and best hygiene practices aside for just a moment as we introduce today's wooly-bully book of choice..

Illustrated by
Schwartz & Wade

A goblin and a troll stand face to face in the woods, just off the well trodden path and to the left of a bridge...basically steps from either's home turf.  They are in a stand off of sorts, but don't let their GRUSOME, GROTESQUE exteriors put you off.  Ignore the food between their teeth, the dank smell in the air, and their ability to scare you right off the road with their hardened glares.  Yes siree, ignore all of the above because though they COULD be out to get you and yours, they are actually trying to out gross each other.

Say what?

Yes, that's right.
They are in a "battle" to see just who should wear the proverbial crown for "Grossest of Them All" and though many votes are in, the final results are going to blow your mind.  After all, none would dare deny either of them being labeled as quite gross, but the TRULY grossest of them all is going to come skipping along out of the blue with a basket of goodies...and one of the GROSSEST HABITS you ever did see.  Note to Grandma....DO NOT EAT THOSE COOKIES!

The illustrations are colorful, vibrant, and...though I'd normally consider this an insult, but seeing what the title actually is...on the gross side.  I mean, you can't have a gross out contest without some nastiness involved.  As the tale progresses, the reminders of good personal hygiene and habits are reinforced ten fold, especially when out surprise winner of the stand off introduces themselves.  Was it a carefully plotted plan?  Perhaps.  Did it make it ANY LESS GROSS to witness even through the page as onlooker?  Nope.  Not at all.  *-*

Recommended read for all ages, from the tall to the small.
