There is much to this enjoyable read, including an education in cognac and wine tasting. Characters were interesting... I wanted more. Librarian review
A good story from an ongoing enjoyable series. 4-star Netgalley review
A book that is so evocative of France, you can visit it in an afternoon without leaving the comfort of your home! Highly recommended enjoyable reading. 4-star Netgalley review
The descriptions of cognac and cigar scents and flavors drew me in as if I, too, were a connoisseur. Rose gardens and sudden storms seem real enough to feel and smell. Then there is a very charming couple of detectives and a surprising mystery. All of this blends together to make an entertaining reading experience. 4-star librarian review
"Readers who would like to visit this part of France vicariously will like this book. It truly concerns itself with France, wine region by wine region. It concerns itself with connoisseurship in food, wine and cigars...such as I found in France and Switzerland over many years of travel. The 'star' of this novel is La Charente, home to the grapes used in Cognac. Readers will learn something here: the typical fragrances (noses) of a well aged Cognac. We (briefly) meet 'Monsieur Body', one of those gifted noses. One also learns that defending cultural icons in a global economy is far from simple." 4-star Netgalley review
When was the last time you were in France and visited one of the oldest and best cognac estates? What? You ve never been to one cognac estate? Never even been to France? Here s your chance to kill two birds sip away at this most rare of mysteries one with hints of intrigue, death, old romance, new romance, and rare blends of small, French villages and attempted Chinese takeovers and frowned upon loves. You deserve something different with rich flavors and aromas you deserve this page turner you know you do! 5-star Netgalley review
"A delightful, frequently tongue-in-cheek excursion through the mysteries and politics of cognac production. Totally recommended." Live Journal
"There is much to this enjoyable read." Librarian review
"The Winemaker Detective Mystery series is a new obsession." Marienella
"The descriptions of cognac and cigar scents and flavors drew me in as if I, too, were a connoisseur." Librarian review

Flanked by a quirky cast of characters, this intriguing novel features two amateur detectives who set out to solve the murder of a is easy to see why this series has gained a following. The depiction of the French countryside enhances the story line. The setting on a French country estate has a certain Gothic element, and the descriptive, flowery language is captivating. Virgile is the Holmes to Benjamin s Watson, serving up the more crackling and interesting dialogue and persona... it is a breezy read, and quite enjoyable. Foreword Reviews"
