    fine Virginia wine country whodunit

    One year ago at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, Lucie Montgomery became the vintner at her family¿s vineyard. Although a lot has happened in that time (see THE CHARDONNAY CHARADE and THE MERLOT MURDERS), Lucie enjoys her work. Lucie hosts a charity event in which dinner is served at Mount Vernon. Supper guest speaker wine writer Valerie Beauvais implies that the prize item at the upcoming charity auction, a bottle of Bordeaux allegedly purchased by Thomas Jefferson in 1790 as a gift to George Washington, is suspect. Valerie and Lucie plan to inspect the wine first hand to insure thee is no duplicity, but the doubter dies in a car accident before she can travel to the Montgomery Estate Vineyard where the Bordeaux is stored. Suspecting foul play to perhaps hide a fraud, Lucie investigates a crowd that she calls friends while her personal life turns even more complicated. --- Although there are too many sidebars complicating a complex amateur sleuth, fans will appreciate sipping wine while Lucie performs the field work. The story line combines a strong mystery with several personal incidents (too many perhaps) and a terrific insightful look at wine myths and history especially amongst the Founding Fathers. Fans will toast Ellen Crosby for a fine Virginia wine country whodunit. --- Harriet Klausner

    Highly Recommend

    The Bordeaux Betrayal is a beautiful continuation of Luci's adventures in developing her Virginian Vineyard while becoming involved in the current mystery that my come her way. I have found the Wine Country Mystery series very well written, entertaining, and informative on the life and times of operating a Vineyard in the Mountains of Virginia. This series is highly recommended for the "Foodie" at heart, as one cannot enjoy the finer qualities of food without sampling a pairing with an exceptional wine. These mysteries factually inform the reader of the process necessary to produce wine. This particular book explores Thomas Jefferson and George Washington's enjoyment of French wine. I cannot wait to finish the series. Thank you Ellen for sharing your knowledge and experiences with us. One does not need to go to California to experience Wine Country.

    Kind of fun

    I tend to get a little tired of the authors who have to do the food theme but I admit that Crosby does a decent job. She does a good job integrating the wine theme into the actual story as well as bringing us some really fun and interesting facts about wine. would not buy in hardback but for sure will look for at the library or in paperback.

    Very enjoyable.

    Very enjoyable series....look forward to next book. Love the setting in Virginia Wine Contry. Also some Civil War history adds the right touch.
