Full-Bodied Wine: A Vintage Murder by Biddy Jenkinson

His Excellency Walter Brown, Ireland's first resident Ambassador to Turkey presented his credentials in September 1968. He delegated the business of finding a residence to his wife, a French Countess, Colette Coerduroi-Brown.

It is left to Dennis O'Gorman, the mission's Third Secretary, to restrain the exuberance of the Countess and handle the negotiations. He becomes embroiled in Turkish politics, in a house that is considered to be haunted. Enter a murderer!

Diligent, ambitious, often unlucky; Dennis is obliged to turn detective.
Millicent, his fiancée in Limerick, disapproves. The Department in Dublin frowns.
He is fed a diet of red herrings, washed down by undependable wine.
Dennis perseveres.

About the Author

Biddy Jenkinson, a gardener by profession, lives on a hill in Ireland with a dog, a cat and a flock of geese. She has a particular interest in the bumble bee and in the preservation of its habitat.

While prepared to encounter the gloomier aspects of reality in other areas, Jenkinson avoids novels that promise to horrify, terrify or otherwise discompose the reader. She will count this story a success if the reader laughs, at least once. This does not mean that she condones murder.

Full-bodied Wine is Jenkinson's first detective novel.

A cozy murder mystery with lots of twists and turns and a bit of humor,too. The characters were easy to visualize and the protagonist a bit naive and very likable. I enjoyed this book.
