Death in the Vines (Verlaque and Bonnet Series #3) by M. L. Longworth

When theft escalates to murder at a French vineyard, a crime wave sweeps over the tranquil town of Aix-en-Provence in the third enchanting Verlaque and Bonnet mystery

The latest book in the Verlaque & Bonnet Mystery series, The Curse of La Fontaine, is available now from Penguin Books!

Winery owner Olivier Bonnard is devastated when he discovers that a priceless cache of rare vintages has been stolen from his private cellar. Soon after, Monsieur Gilles d’Arras arrives at Aix-en-Provence’s Palais de Justice to report another mysterious disappearance: his wife, Pauline, has vanished from their lavish apartment. Madame has always been as tough as nails, but in recent weeks she’s been wandering around town in her slippers, crying for no reason.

As the mistral arrives to temper the region’s late-summer heat, Commissioner Paulik receives an urgent call from Bonnard: he’s just found Pauline d’Arras—dead in his vineyard. Verlaque and Bonnet are once again investigating, in what will prove to be their most complicated case yet.

Fans of Donna Leon and Andrea Camilleri, Francophiles, and foodies alike will adore this captivating whodunit. In her riveting follow-up to Death at the Chateau Bremont and Murder in the Rue Dumas, M. L. Longworth masterfully evokes the sights, sounds, and tastes of late-summer Provence, where the mistral blows and death springs up in the most unexpected places.

“Judge Antoine Verlaque, the sleuth in this civilized series, discharges his professional duties with discretion. But we’re here to taste the wines. So many bottles, so many lovely views. A reader might be forgiven for feeling woozy.” —The New York Times Book Review

This is the third Verlaque and Bonnet mystery. Having spent some time in Provence (Aix in particular), the series gets high marks for creating a sense of place. I was not as enthralled with the story line in this particular mystery. Several plot lines where running simultaneously, some of which merged (a bit unbelievably), some of which did not.

Runs his hands down her naked body as her keeps thrusting deep inside. He thrusts again, sexually grinding his body upon hers. He puts his hands on her boobs.
