I really like this series set in Newport. In this second book, amateur sleuth Caroline Kent and Newport Police Detective Hank Nightengale are no longer dating but are thrown back together in the investigation. At the engagement part of Imogen Revell, her fiancé, Hugh, dies after drinking a poisoned glass of burgundy. But who was the intended victim? The glass was Imogen's. The setting is fabulous in this series. Newport is a place I'd like to explore. Since I haven't been able to, I enjoy exploring it through these books. The mystery is well plotted with great characters. I highly recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
