The Riesling Retribution: A Wine Country Mystery (Wine Country Mysteries)
1 journaler for this copy...
There's also a simmering romantic subplot, with heroine and vineyard-owner Lucie torn between her competent-but-often-grumpy winemaker Quinn and the sunny and charming new-hire Chance. (One guess how *that's* going to work out.)
I liked some of the historical background (much of which was based on fact, as laid out in the afterword) and the running-a-vineyard info; the actual murder mystery was... OK, I guess, though I was never as invested in it as Lucie seemed to be. The plot-threads also took a LONG time to come together, with the ending of the story feeling rushed to me, and leaving several things unresolved - possibly to resurface in a future book?
