Vineyards, gardens, fine wine, and food pairings delight… yet, in this case, death disturbs all tranquility!
Roses, Wine & Murder is a thrilling madcap adventure laced with New England history, scenic vineyards, and Coast Guard action all on the shores of Long Island Sound.
Roxanne Samson, a sensible gardening expert, and her friend, Georgi Algarve, manager of the Vinho Verde Wine Bar realize their lives are in serious danger after a wealthy wine connoisseur is found dead in her city garden. The endearing duo attempt to discover the murderer in their own haphazard way and then a deadly game of blackmail is played.
New London’s prominent Detective Morrison, juggles multiple suspects and a Long Island widow, as a maniac’s malevolence snakes through the City of Steeples. His pressure compounds when the U.S. President decides to give a speech in town at the Coast Guard Academy. Suddenly, Fire Chief Samson's crew is called to attend another unresponsive victim nearby. The twisting investigation commanderies Long Island Ferry Captain Griswold, as he steers his vessel pass the lighthouses of Long Island Sound.

In between all the mayhem, wine dinners are hosted at the Vinho Verde Wine Bar by Georgi, the flamboyant wine aficionado. Roxanne relieves stress in her garden and researches poisonous plants when she discovers it is the killer’s forte.

About the Author

Thank you for visiting! I was born in the wilds of Maine with nature as my teacher. My background in plants and horticulture is in my character Roxanne Samson, an expert gardener. Roxanne utilizes her plant knowledge to research poisonous plants, and she learns from Georgi Algarve, the flamboyant wine aficionado all about vineyards, and wine.
I live in a historic area of Connecticut, and so I include bits of New England history and architecture into the mystery as we travel through posh vineyards and a labyrinth of historic city streets. My research included visits to many vineyards and speaking to experts about wine and food pairings.I also interviewed 'those in the know' of an official Presidential visit to the Coast Guard Academy and included the scene and Georgi and Roxanne's escapades during it.
I love doing the research to explore the story and my characters so I may enhance their personalities and add to their knowledge. Captain Griswold travels by ferry across Long Island Sound to Orient Point and back, and so did I many times to track my characters and visit the vineyards.
Inspirational, educational, and with a dynamic story is how I like to entertain every reader. I look forward to hearing from you with your reviews. Thank you for connecting with me!
All the Best to You,
