Good mystery, good characters and such interesting background. Set in a vineyard in Virginia in the U.S.A.; lots about wine and lots of history too.

I'll be looking for more by this author, Ellen Crosby: Ellen Crosby's website

RELEASE NOTES:

This was an interesting story and I really liked having the maps. On the other hand there was an awfully large amount of free and easy sex going on and shifting of partners and so on, to say nothing of physical abuse
Taking this to Meetup. If no one takes it this will be in the box under the shelf near the front door.

Picked up for my mom at last BookCrossing Vancouver Meetup.

ETA: She said it was too "easy" -- the level of writing was very low and she wanted something more engaging. She didn't finish it.

Journal Entry 8 by Zooma from Vancouver, British Columbia Canada on Tuesday, January 13, 2009
I liked the story about a woman and a winnery in Virginia. The violence at the end really bugged me.

This is now on its way to Erishkigal, who chose it out of Loriped & Shroffland's Mysterious Mysteries VBB. Enjoy!

arrived today, looks good....not sure I have any Merlot, I may read it with Chard.... :-D

Journal Entry 13 by wingerishkigalwing at Salt Lake City, Utah USA on Sunday, October 10, 2010
I thoroughly enjoyed this, and I'm with eicuthbertson: good mystery, good characters, and fascinating setting. I love when I can read a light fun book that I incidentally learn something from :-) I also like that Lucie has physical limitations, and how she deals with both the actuality and the perceptions of others. Something we don't see often enough. And I chuckled out loud when she referred to her morning-hair looking like Tintin~~heehee.

I will be looking for further Wine Country Mysteries, as I want to see how the vineyard and the characters grow.

Thanks for sharing!

Journal Entry 15 by aetm at Austin, Texas USA on Saturday, November 13, 2010
The book arrived safely in Austin (as a part of the mystery VBB). Thank you Erishkigal. :)
I think this one will need some merlot to accompany it for the perfect reading experience (sort of like mysteries with a cat are nicer to read with a cat around. Not that the cats wouldn't hang around too with the merlot book too...)

Journal Entry 16 by aetm at Austin, Texas USA on Thursday, April 07, 2011
Interesting characters, and a lovely bubbly little mystery. (If it was wine, I'd say it was more chardonnay or spumante than merlot. Merlots needs more body... err, a few more bodies in this case, perhaps, and a few more dramatic, outrageous twists on the plot. Then again, I also thought that a drink with some rum from the Cayman Islands went well with this story).
I like Lucie as character, and learning more about winemaking (in a bigger scale than home), and there definitely was a share of unpleasant characters too.

I wish the bookcrossing meetings in Austin were as populated as the ones in BC... I'll see if I might end up releasing this around a nice Texas winery (I have one in mind, and plan to visit it soon), or perhaps the local meet here.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Taking to the Austin BC meet today (I'd love to release the book in a winery, but visiting one isn't probably going to happen in a reasonable time... so hopefully some other reader will enjoy this meanwhile). If not taken, will be on the bookshelf.

Safe journey little book - I hope you'll make many new friends on your travels!

Don't apologize to this author for buying books second hand, or getting them from bookcrossing or borrowing a friend's copy. What's important to me is that people read the books and enjoy them, and that, at some point in there, the book was bought by someone. And that people who like things, tell other people.
