    Lucie Montgomery's semi-estranged brother, Eli, calls her in France to tell her that their father, Leland, has been killed in a hunting accident on the family's 500-acre Virginia vineyard. But the vineyard is now shabby and run-down and her siblings want to sell it. Then Lucie's godfather tells her Leland's death was no accident. With her greedy brother, hell-raising sister, and a seemingly cut-rate vintner hired by Leland just before he died, all the suspects are disturbingly close to home.

    Wine & history w/ your mystery!

    The Merlot Murders is an excellent read, esp. for those who like a little history and a little wine thrown into our mysteries. I've lived in the N Vir..Show More »

    Facing a freakish May freeze that threatens her vineyard, Lucie Montgomery is forced to hire a helicopter to fly over the vines warming the arctic air next to the grapes. But her luck in salvaging the harvest runs out when she discovers the body of Georgia Greenwood, a controversial local political candidate, lying near the fields.

    wishing there was more

    I routinely listen to the lighter, "cozy Mysteries" as I putter in my garden, clean my house, cook and run my kids around. I love real true ..Show More »

    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.

    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.

    When a tornado rips through Montgomery Estate Vineyard, it not only destroys some of Lucie Montgomery's newest grapevines, it also unearths an old grave. After the dead man is identified as a former business associate of Lucie's father, it seems everyone in Lucie's hometown has already decided Leland Montgomery is a murderer. As the evidence piles up against him, Lucie sets out to prove her father's innocence.

    It was ok

    I was a bit disappointed that there was not resolution but it was ok. I'll still get the next one in the series.

    When Lucie Montgomery visits Washington, D.C., she doesn't expect that her reunion with old friend Rebecca Natale is a setup. But Rebecca disappears into thin air after running an errand for her boss, billionaire philanthropist and investment guru Sir Thomas Asher. Also missing: an antique silver wine cooler looted by British soldiers before they burned the White House during the War of 1812.

    Wonderful story--but the narrator left me groaning

    I love all of Ellen Crosby's books, and to date, I had read the previous ones in paper version. I wish I had kept to that format.

    When Lucie Montgomery finds the body of prominent wine merchant Paul Noble hanging from a beam in his art studio not far from her Virginia vineyard, she is unwittingly dragged into Noble's murky past. Once a member of the secretive Mandrake Society, Noble might have aided in a cover-up of the deaths forty years ago of a disabled man and a beautiful young biochemist involved in classified government research.

    Perhaps the end of a good thing?

    Lucie Montgomery and winemaker Quinn Santori have decided to make champagne, a first for the Montgomery Estate Vineyard in Atoka, Virginia. But then Gino Tomassi, Quinn's uncle, turns up on their doorstep, demanding help in solving the mystery of what happened to Zara Tomassi, the first wife of his grandfather, who died in a San Francisco hotel in 1923 under suspicious circumstances. It seems there's no coincidence that her death came the day after President Warren Harding passed away in that same hotel.
