THE VIOGNIER VENDETTA
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
This Wine Country Mystery series is set in Washington, D.C. Told in first person, this mystery is a charming and informative series about wine making in a part of the country people don’t usually associate with vineyards, as well as the history and politics of the area. Lucie is a knowledgeable detective, sweet but not too soft to follow a mystery to its conclusion. A fascinating mystery with a great plot, vivid characters and the art of wine making. The historical information is like frosting on a cake, making this is a thoroughly delicious read.
Lucie Montgomery is asked to meet an old friend from college in D.C. Rebecca had disappeared from Lucie’s life without a word, but now she is back, working for an English billionaire philanthropist and investment genius. But by the next day Rebecca has disappeared again, supposedly having stolen an antique silver wine cooler looted by the British during the burning of the capital. Secret meetings, 18th-century poetry and the truth about the investment company lead Lucie down a convoluted quest for answers. (SCRIBNER, Aug., 272 pp., $24.00)
