What is on your summer reading list this year? We just added some potential mayhem and intrigue to it, with Mayhem in Margaux, a new adventure in the Winemaker Detective series by Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noël Balen.
Reviewers concur that this is “a perfect beach book or why not in the evening on the terrace with a glass of wine.” The Winemaker Detective series by Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noël Balen is a "lifestyle" mystery series made of classic wines, old winemaking families and their estates, genteel epicurean drinking and dining, fine cigars and, in this book a luxury vacation destination. Once again, this amateur detective/cozy mystery, translated by Boulder-based translator Sally Pane, whisks readers away to France for a gentle mystery, and a lot of atmosphere.
Want to catch up on the series? There's enough here to while away a few summer reading sessions, and to down a few bottles of wine - all with moderation of course.
