“Benjamin and Virgile are back! This time they are in Alsace. Benjamin is on his way to Germany to meet with a client but he stops off in Alsace-Lorraine to sample some local wine and food. Unfortunately, someone has decided to attack vines, with what appears to be a chainsaw at local wine estates. Even if the village is plagued by suspicions of bad luck Benjamin and Virgile won't let that get in their way as they try to work out who the culprit or culprits are.
Every time I read a book in the Winemaker detective series I feel like I'm meeting up with two old friends, who show me around an new region while sampling the local specialties. Though there may be crime involved, it still feels like I'm taking a holiday without leaving my armchair. It's a great warm inviting look into the world of French wine. Just don't forget the glass of Gewurztraminer for this one.” —Susanne's Book List
