“Stepping into one of the Winemaker Detective books is like slipping into your favorite armchair... you want to settle in, transport yourself to France.”

"Stepping into one of the Winemaker Detective books is like slipping into your favorite armchair. Much like I did as a child with an Agatha Christie novel, you want to settle in, transport yourself to the grape fields of France (in this case Alsace), and immerse yourself in Benjamin and Virgile's wine travails. It always seem such a rude awakening coming out of the books and back to real life. Sigh...

This is book 10 in the series (!!) and once again there is a mystery that seems to have no answer, yet whose resolution comes so naturally and easily, that the reader almost forgets there is actually a mystery to be solved, as Benjamin and Virgile educate the reader on the wines of Alsace and the history of the region. Having read the series so far, I truly feel like I finally understand France better as a country of very varied area, much like our own. The history of the regions not only affect the grapes, but the legends, family rivalries and food of the region. If you never really thought of seeing France beyond Paris and Versailles, this series will change your mind!

This is one of the quicker books to read in the series, but not one to miss! It is another enjoyable trip to France, when  old man Winter is a biting (or roasting us here in Louisiana)!” —Bless Their Hearts Mom
