Description
In the sixth book of the "entertaining, fast-paced" (Booklist) Wine Country Mystery series, Lucie Montgomery tracks down a secret society to uncover mysterious.
Among the world-class vineyards of the Napa Valley, "Virginia's favorite vintner-detective" (Library Journal) and her winemaker ex-beau investigate the role of a secret society in two mysterious deaths-- and whether there is hope for their rocky romance.
When Lucie Montgomery finds the dead body of a prominent wine merchant hanging from a beam in his art studio, she is unwittingly dragged into his murky past and its dangerous implications for a family friend. The puzzle sends Lucie to California wine country where she teams up with former lover Quinn Santori. Soon they are embroiled in a deadly cat-and-mouse game to discover whether a killer is seeking vengeance for a longago cover-up. As Lucie and Quinn examine clues from the past, they must also decide whether they have a future together. Ellen Crosby blends an intriguing mystery with an absorbing plot, vivid characters, and a richly evoked setting in a charming tale that should be savored like a glass of fine wine.
