    Terrific entry in the Wine Country Series

    I have read 3 of these now, and they have decent mysteries and lots of information about wine and Virginia wine country. Even if you are not a wine lover, you will find these books interesting!

    A fine mystery

    Open up a nice chardonnay -- or even a merlot, find a comfortable chair and enjoy accompanying Lucie Montgomery as she discovers who is responsible for the dead corpse found in her vineyard. This is an enjoyable and intriguing story that captures the reader from the first sentence. Told against the backdrop of the tight knit community of Virginia wine (and horse) country, the added details of local civil war history and of the art of winemaking blend nicely with a good tale. The characters are finely drawn, with rich histories of their own. This is a highly enjoyable and captivating mystery.

    The Chardonnay Charade Ellen Crosby Scribner, Aug 2007, $24.00 ISBN 9780743289924 The late seasonal frost endangers the vines in Lucie Montgomery's Virginia based winery. Lucie spends the night freezing as she and her crew tries to keep the vines from freezing. However, upon daylight, to her chagrin, Lucie finds the corpse of politician Georgia Greenwood. The police investigate the murder with the victim¿s husband Ross as the prime (and only) suspect. Meanwhile since Georgia¿s body was contaminated by pesticide, EPA officials consider fining Lucie for misuse. She plans to stay out of the inquiry as she has enough to do with her winery, her alcoholic sister, and her jealous ire at her winemaker. An outraged Lucie decides to investigate the homicide as she does not trust the nouveau officialdom to seek the truth when she and Ross are convenient. --- The latest A Wine Country Mystery (see THE MERLOT MURDERS) goes down smooth from start to finish due to Lucie¿s actions as she adapts from saving her vines to saving her friend and her reputation. The contrast between old money and the invading newcomers add regional depth to this fine tale. However, it is the cast from the bristly heroine to her winemaker to her sister to her friend and finally the cops who turn THE CHARDONNAY CHARADE into a palate pleasing tasty tale. --- Harriet Klausner
