A sudden death and a daughter's return yield a bitter harvest.

When the heir to the Claremont Vineyards in Northern California, is killed in an accident, his sister Martinique returns home for the funeral. A journalist in San Francisco, she grows suspicious of the accident, convinced there is more to the story. Her brother's best friend, Lee Kellog agrees to help her, but there is a complication--Lee has always had strong feelings for her. Complicating matters, Marti's Paul Thorpe is more than just her employer.
As Marti begins trying to piece the information together, a story she never expected unfolds that places her in a dangerous position. Will she survive the truth?

"Bitter Vintage" brings the suspense of treachery, greed and ambition along with romance and betrayal as the story unfolds against the California vineyards of the Napa-Sonoma region and the migrant workers' struggle for fair wages in 1964. The book's retro-style is comparable to Mary Stewart's suspense novels.

About the Author

Riona Kelly is a pen name for a pair of writers, who collaborate on suspense romance novels. One of the ladies writes paranormal suspense and sci-fi fantasy under a different pen name.

The Riona side of the team hails from the southwestern United States where she was raised until 21, then she migrated to California. She lived there several years before moving back east all the way to Las Vegas, Nevada and eventually moving north to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. She enjoys painting, drawing, music and living an uncomplicated life while serving the needs of her feline companions. She’s a fan of figure skating and has skated herself. Writing is a passion so like it or not, there will be more books.

As for the Kelly girl, she comes from Northern California and migrated to the same northern region of Nevada after a couple of years at college in the Golden State. She is a voracious reader, enjoys a good book, and likes to twist plots. In her spare time, she pampers her Bichon-poodle mix pup, sometimes like to zip down to Picasso and Wine and slap some paint on a canvas for fun, and enjoys Celtic and operatic music.
