Friends In Napa book signing at Cadet

Author Sheila Yasmin Marikar will be at Cadet Wine + Beer Bar on selling and signing copies of her new dark comedy Friends in Napa on Friday, April 12, from 5 to 7 p.m. This scandalous mystery features our own Napa Valley as the backdrop. Here is a summary: Raj and Rachel Ranjani have invited a small group of their friends from college for a celebratory weekend in Napa Valley. On the agenda: three nights in the couple’s vineyard mansion, a lavish dinner at Napa’s hottest new restaurant, exclusive tastings and the grand opening of the Ranjanis’ ultra-high-end winery. It’s a reunion of six friends who haven’t seen each other in years. What could go wrong? To start, there’s the less-than-warm welcome: a brick flung through a window and palpable tension between the hosts. But no worries—all Raj has to do is pop a few bottles of vintage Dom and the college vibes come rushing back. Soon enough, the illusion of friendship shatters and one of the friends ends up dead. Everyone has their motivations. Everyone has something to hide. Cadet Wine + Beer Bar, 930 Franklin St., Napa,
