Publisher's Summary

Lucie Montgomery, vintner at a Virginia winery, must solve a mystery that connects a presidential scandal with a murder in Prohibition-era DC that echoes all the way to the present.

Lucie Montgomery and winemaker Quinn Santori have decided to make champagne, a first for the Montgomery Estate Vineyard in Atoka, Virginia. But then Gino Tomassi, Quinn's uncle, turns up on their doorstep, demanding help in solving the mystery of what happened to Zara Tomassi, the first wife of his grandfather, who died in a San Francisco hotel in 1923 under suspicious circumstances. It seems there's no coincidence that her death came the day after President Warren Harding passed away in that same hotel. Gino needs answers before his blackmailer takes him for all he's worth - or exposes an explosive family secret.

Lucie searches for what happened almost 100 years ago as she delves into Prohibition-era Washington, DC - a town of bootlegging and duplicity, jazz clubs and speakeasies. But then the investigation turns deadly, threatening Lucie, her relationship with Quinn, and the vineyard. Someone is still out there, nearly a century later, who will go to any lengths to keep the truth about Zara's death a buried secret.

Exceptionally good story

I've read probably 300 cozy mysteries and I've never heard this story line. Engaging characters and plot twists right up to the last page. I hope this is a series because I can't wait to see what happens next!

Not my favorite

The characters were hard to follow and the narrator was a bit sing songy, it wasn’t my favorite

Welcome Back

I waited a long time for another book in this series. It was worth the wait. The characters were still fresh and likable. The plot was interesting and entertaining. I hope it wasn't the last book.
