    At first I really wasn't sure Honestly up until 80% through I still wasn't sure There was so much going on and even though there were connections I really just could not see the point of the story The last 20 though almost made up for all that A lot of uestions got answered a lot of things came out and the way he solves the case and gets it noticed really was interesting and well thought out I've gone back and forth between 3 and 4 stars over and over since I finished reading it Four to me means that I liked it enough to tell everyone they should read it but I don't know if I can do that I still just don't knowHere were some of my thoughts on the book FYI it won't give anything away but it does give some info that you would learn from the bookThe romance between ex army brother why does everyone name their main characters Jake?and the girl he hadn't seen in like 15 years was awkward unnecessary and way too fast It felt forced and out of place It detracted from the story but then gave a reason for the PI guy to suddenly be in his lifeThe relationship between the wine guy and his assistant was just confusing and well scary I know that they were using it to show even of his depravity but between that and all of his talk about a cute butt boy from North Africa which is mentioned over and over again throughout the middle part of the book I was a little disturbedIt really needs someone to come through and give it a once over fix the missing words grammatical issues and misuse of punctuationI received this book free with the agreement that I would write an honest review

    1st of all I want to thank Mr Prasad for providing me with the copy of this book I appreciate it very muchAn enjoyable read A well crafted story The protagonist Jake Knight is a fine character Set in the Sonoma Valley in California wine and cheese country Jake if newly back from a tour of duty in Afghanistan And his character is the most vivid of the story One wants to believe in Jake and in the end to read of his exploits And I thought that I read somewhere in Goodreads that Mr Prasad is working on another Sonoma Knight book I will look forward to it being availableWhile Jake's character is real and believable I can't really say the same for many of the other characters Oh the main ones were developed well but the periphery characters just didn't seem as real as Jake Especially Jake's brother Wally Maybe in further books Wally will come into his own But pretty much all main characters seemed to be real You know someone you could know and want to know aboutThe plot was complex without being so complicated that one couldn't follow it Someone was killing goats in the Sonoma Valley and Jake wonders why What follows is a complex plot to delude wine connoisseurs out of money for expensive bottles of wine While not wanting to give any spoilers Jake attempts to look into this mystery Uncovering what is known to the readers is what is at the heart of the storyAs I said I enjoyed the book uite a lot in fact Hoping to read of the Sonoma Knight in the future

    When Peter Prasad posted a description of his book I commented on how enticing I found the setting the Sonoma Wine Country and the artisanal cheese making trade The author included my comment in the book's opening notes Reading the book in actuality turned out to be as enjoyable as anticipated He describes it as a fun entertaining romantic crime novel which is exactly what it is Jake Knight is a returning veteran with a healing war wound who wants to regain his uncomplicated farm life and joins his brother Wally in turning the farm they inherited from their father into a sheep spread where the milk will be cultivated into cheese His other desire is to become a private detective The instincts driving him into the latter profession come to the fore when he suspects that a new and shady character has bought a wine property and is adulterating the wine to disguise its doctored contents so that it can be sold for hugely inflated profits Jake soon connects the new wine maker with the death of numerous goats found killed and their livers cut out A large part of the book's enjoyment consists of submersion in the local culture of the area Jake's return to normality in the arms of a beautiful barmaid provides the romance All in all an enjoyable romp in wine and cheese country

    WOW I loved this book Peter Prasad is an exceptional story teller It was fun that the setting was in Sonoma close to where I live and I could relate to the locations which were vividly described The story and plot were so captivating I stayed awake reading later than I should have because I was enjoying the cast of uniue interesting and sometimes twisted characters This was a very well written compelling interesting educational humorous and creative read Jake was a hero in high school while serving his country as a US Army Ranger patrolman and now as a rookie private investigator Since the number of pages remaining was getting smaller and smaller I knew I was coming to the end of the book but not ready for it to endso I was thrilled to learn that this is the first book in a series of the Sonoma Knight

    The Goat Ripper Case is an interesting book involving murder and mystery The characters are captivating and well developed You will however want to whack a couple of them And if you think the book is just about goats think again Peter Prasad paints a beautiful peaceful picture of a Sonoma's winery and farmland before he shocks the reader by weaving darkness and perversion of a sexually dominant narcissist and a sick o psychotic into itThe book is a page turner and kept my interest until the end I would recommend giving it a readThe book was free from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review

    The Goat Ripper Case treats the reader to a multifaceted story line that is richly endowed with descriptive prose Jake the Afghanistan War veteran and war hero who has recently returned home to Sonoma Valley is a truly likable character At times as the plot advances it seems he is unusually lucky but isn't that often the case with fictional heroes Soon he is working in the family farm business with his brother A parallel story line is introduced early Semper a devilish character has plans to make his newly purchased vineyard into a highly profitable business The lives of these two men who are so different soon become entangled in an unexpected way The character development of both is superb Surrounding these two key figures other interesting characters are introduced And romance happens complete with several sex scenes; parental discretion is advised The author made the time to learn a great deal about the wine and cheese businesses of Sonoma Valley He weaves many interesting details of those industries into his tale The very best of the story is saved for the last chapters It is there that the identity of the person targeted for death is finally revealed Peter is a writer who is truly skilled in the art of painting pictures with words I offer one small sample of his writing style The setting sun began to kiss the ocean in a final blaze of golden orange across the dunes Such lovely word imagery is to be found sprinkled among the paragraphs of this book in liberal ualities We must assume that Peter loves to write If there is a fault to be clearly identified with Goat Ripper it would be that Chapter One should be edited until it is brought up to the uality of the rest of this entertaining novel But after that one criticism there is little left to criticize Here is a book to be recommended to mature readers who enjoy the reading of adventure stories placed in the setting of today's California wine country

    This is the first in a series of novels by Peter Prasad and it forms a good introduction to his main character recently returned and decorated Army veteran Jake Knight Jake has plans to become a PI and the goat ripper case is his first one The book is set in Sonoma and although I don’t know the area well I have visited there and loved the whole atmosphere and the memories the book evoked As I said a good introductory novel and although not flawless certainly worth reading

    Deep reverence for the Sonoma land and the culture of cheese and wine Characterization is phenomenal A gem of a book


  9. says:

    DecentAn average PI novel I was hoping for given the setting of California’s wonderful wine country There was opportunity to make this story deeper with developed characters but the author wasn’t able to flesh out the main characters so in my opinion the book fell short
