Joyce Tremel Synopsis: To Brew or Not to Brew by Joyce Tremel is the author’s first novel and the first book in the Brewing Trouble Mystery series. The Allegheny Brew House is a dream come true for Maxine O’Hara, who travelled to Germany to earn her brewmaster certification, and is now preparing to open her own craft brew pub in a newly revitalized section of Pittsburgh. But before she can start pouring stouts and lagers to thirsty throngs, there’s trouble on tap. Suspicious acts of sabotage culminate in Max finding her assistant brewmaster and chef Kurt Schmidt strangled in one of the vats. Between rescuing a stray gray tabby she names Hops and considering a handsome ex-hockey player as her new chef, Max doesn’t have a lot of time to solve a murder. But with a homicide detective for a dad, she comes to criminal investigation naturally. And if someone is desperate enough to kill to stop her from opening, Max needs to act fast – before her brand-new brew biz totally tanks…
