Here's the perfect mystery to pair with a bottle of Merlot or prehaps an unpretentious Chardonnay. In the latest of her Wine Country mystery series, Ellen Crosby blends Virginia viticulture with history and wine lore. Lucie Montgomery is shocked to discover the body of historian Valerie Beauvais near her vineyard.

The previous evening the dead woman had been involved in a verbal brawl with a noted wine critic on the grounds of George Washington's Mount Vernon. Supposedly Valerie knew the secret about a priceless Bordeaux Thomas Jefferson had purportedly purchased for President Washington.

The rare vintage from Colonial times lies at the heart of this engaging mystery that encompasses fermenting family secrets, eccentric winemakers, international wine industry politics and, of course, murder!
