Publisher's Summary

When Valerie Beauvais, author of a book on Thomas Jefferson's travels through the wine regions of France and Italy, turns up dead near Lucie Montgomery's Virginia vineyard, Lucie is certain Valerie's murder has something to do with the authenticity of a 200-year-old bottle of Bordeaux Jefferson may once have purchased for his good friend George Washington.

Though Lucie plans to auction off the valuable bottle at a charity fundraiser, it soon becomes apparent others want to get their hands on what's quickly becoming a wine to die for.

As Lucie and her eccentric winemaker, Quinn Santori, bring in the last grapes of the season, Quinn's controversial past becomes intertwined with Valerie's death and the rare Bordeaux.

What begins as Lucie's quiet investigation into the provenance of the Washington wine ends in revealing a web of deceit and betrayal affecting not only the international wine world, but her own world as well.

Uncork another Wine Country Mystery.

    "Beverly Hillbillies Meet the Hunt Club Crowd"

    Virginians from the wine country don't sound like that. And, neither does anyone else in America! The reader's fake Virgina drawl sounded something like Deputy Dawg's little cartoon pal "Muskey". Her male voices sounded like a little girl mimicking her daddy. The real mystery here is why on earth, the publisher used this reader. The book wasn't so hot to start with but that reader killed off any possible enjoyment.

    "Narrator awful"

    I can't say if the book itself is good or bad because the reader's "Southern" accent was like listening to a very irritating 6 year old girl.

    "It's not a mystery..."

    I thought this was going to be a wonderful book. The idea of a mystery set in wine country was wonderful to me.

    The book, however is a badly done romance with dull characters doing very little of interest. I listened through five painful hours praying that the totally whiny heroine would do something...ANYTHING of interest. She didn't.

    I finally quit listening. This is bit of a tragedy, because the information about life on a vineyard was the only really interesting aspect of this otherwise bland bland book.

    The story starts with a death and I was settling in for a good mystery. But after five mind-numbing hours of a heroine agonizing over nearly EVERYTHING...I couldn't stand it any more.

    Horrible...easily the worst Audible book I have ever purchased.

    I have two rescue dogs. One Scottish born husband. And a love of books that goes back to childhood and bookmobiles!
