Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the sixth book of the “entertaining, fast-paced” (Booklist) Wine Country Mystery series, Lucie Montgomery tracks down a secret society to uncover mysterious.

When Lucie Montgomery finds the body of prominent wine merchant Paul Noble hanging from a beam in his art studio not far from her Virginia vineyard, she is unwittingly dragged into Noble’s murky past. Once a member of the secretive Mandrake Society, Noble might have aided in a forty-year cover-up of the deaths of a disabled man and a beautiful young biochemist involved in classified government research.

     A seemingly innocent favor for an old friend of her French grandfather sends Lucie to California, where she teams up with Quinn Santori, who walked out of Lucie’s life months earlier. Soon Lucie and Quinn are embroiled in a deadly cat-and-mouse game that takes them from glittering San Francisco to the legendary vineyards of Napa and Sonoma, and back home to Virginia, as they try to discover whether a killer may be seeking vengeance for the long-ago deaths. As Lucie and Quinn struggle to uncover the past, they must also decide whether they have a future together. Blending an intriguing mystery with an absorbing plot, vivid characters, and a richly evoked setting, The Sauvignon Secret should be savored like a glass of fine wine.

Synopsis:

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.
