Christine Marshall's Southern accent and clear diction set the tone for this enological mystery set in northern Virginia. Bad weather is the least of vineyard owner Lucie Montgomery's problems--she must also deal with a murder, a suicide, an alcoholic sister who may have caused a fatal car accident, her feelings for a local winemaker, and a new romance with a tycoon who wants to buy adjoining property. It's a good mystery, and Marshall brings out each character's strengths, flaws, motivations, and, in some cases, foreign accents. Lucie's determination to clear her sister ultimately solves the murders as well. A brief and informative comparison of California and Virginia winemaking follows. This is an audio worth a toast!
