Description

Now in mass market, Ellen Crosby's third suspenseful tale set in Virginia wine country features a bottle of Bordeaux that Thomas Jefferson may have purchased for George Washington--and it just may be a wine to die for.

When a noted author and historian turns up dead the night after a brawl with a famous wine critic on the grounds of George Washington's home, vineyard owner Lucie Montgomery is certain that the death is related to the authenticity of a priceless bottle of Bordeaux. As Lucie investigates the history of the Washington wine, she uncovers a web of deceit and a long-forgotten scandal that affects not only the international wine world, but also her own. Combining winemaking detail and rich Virginia history with an intriguing mix of characters, this whodunit is a feast for the senses.
