    Waiting for the next book.Claire de Montagne is the 50 yr old owner of Violet Vineyards in Napa Valley.She is hosting her first crush party and as the party starts to take off a dead body is found in a vat of wine No one is surprised that the opinionated and mean mouth wine connoisseur Dimitri is dead In fact many are happy.But when Claire s winemaker and right hand man Samson is arrested, Claire takes matters into her own hands and discovers secrets he has kept hidden As the bodies pile up, who is behind the vintners problems.I immensely enjoyed this book, after the first few chapters Which for me just gave to much winemaking detail But that is probably because we do a lot of wine tours and tasting.The description of the valley and wineries are so perfect that I could close my eyes and I was back in Napa.The characters are well written and filled out with personality.And when I found myself irritated at Claire and Samson and their actions, like they were real Then I was sure this writer is invested in his characters The ending was so good and if truth be told, this series would be much better on Hallmark than some of the others Thank You

    Another good Violet Vineyards Mystery I love the characters and the mystery was really good I was totally shocked by the killer I really didn t suspect that person at all My only issue with this book is about the MC s relationship I think she got too easily offended by the things he said and did P But, overall, I look forward to reading the next one.

    Same song, different verseIt s been done before, about a bazillion timessome better, some worse Female business owner thankfully, not another tearoom or bakery becomes embroiled in solving a murder Male officer of the law and the female amateur sleuth have chemistry and a history, and of course they butt heads and both do stupid, irrational things to enable the plot There is drama, the mystery ends up getting solved, and the end has a twist that was hinted at earlier The winery bits were very interesting, though.

    3 1 2 stars Well written and very informative on wine and wine making Good story but a little too much of the main character getting beaten up
