Overview

Someone is out to destroy the family vineyard—and expose its secrets—in this atmospheric novel from Cynthia Ellingsen, Amazon Charts bestselling author of The Lighthouse Keeper.

Abby Harrington’s family has dedicated their lives to cultivating the family vineyard and collecting vintage wines. But it takes only one night for the priceless collection to vanish, stolen during Abby’s grandparents’ sixtieth anniversary celebration. Then a devastating plane crash leaves her grandfather clinging to life in intensive care.

Desperate to take action, Abby sets out to discover who stole the precious wine—and why. The clues lead her to dark truths about her family she is not prepared to face. Soon Abby begins receiving threatening messages and doubting those closest to her. Making things even more complicated, the attractive doctor who saved her grandfather’s life offers her a shoulder to lean on just as the man she once loved returns to the vineyard.

The more truths Abby is forced to confront, the more her world spins off its axis. Can she unravel the secrets of the past in time to save the vineyard’s future—and her own?

What a fabulous book! With just enough history and suspense to keep in really interesting. The author keeps us guessing throughout the book and I loved the surprises she had in store for us! As a "Cork Dork", I also really enjoyed the many wine-related facts sprinkled through this book :) The romance factor comes into play as well and I hope I am correct in sensing a possible sequel to wrap a few more details up! I would definitely recommend this book!

I received an ARC eBook from the publisher and Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I was looking forward to returning to Starlight Cove. It was fun to return to the familiar characters and places from The Lighthouse Keeper (first book in the series). You don't need to read the first book, as they are standalone stories.I Abby tries to unravel the mystery of who's stealing from their family winery all while her grandfather is recuperating from a plane crash. Her older brother, Dean returns after being away many years following problems with addiction and ready to step up to a management role in the winery. There's a bit of romance for Abby with the new doctor and an old flame, who returns from Chile. All while she's investigating the theft of a valuable wine collection. There's a bit of tension among the winery employees as well as with the owners of the newest winery on the Michigan peninsula where Starlight Cove is located. All in all, a good story I would recommend, although I enjoyed the first book more. I'm hoping that Dean and Kelcee's story will be up next in the series.

I fell in love with Starlight Cove in THE LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER, and Cynthia Ellingsen brings us back to that quaint vacation town with another mystery in THE WINEMAKER’S DAUGHTER. This time, the setting is a lovely family-owned vineyard where a decades-long family secret and the theft of stolen wine put the main character’s life at risk and the family business in jeopardy. This novel is filled with all the things you’ve enjoyed in Ellingsen’s previous novels: characters you want to befriend, a love interest or two, and family dramas interwoven throughout. This book pairs well with your favorite wine, no matter what that might be. I suggest you pour yourself a glass, block off a few hours, and settle into a cozy spot to read; you won’t want to stop until you reach the end.
