“A perfect early summer read... Family relations, friendship, murder, vineyards, drought, old cars, cigars, treatment of illegal immigrant workers, attraction, jealousy and wine.”

“A very nice change. Benjamin's family plays center stage within this round of mystery. Lovely to see his interaction with wife and daughter, even his stroke of jealousy over the gravitational pull between Margaux and Virgile. While the family heads to the coastal resort to escape the unbearable heat, Benjamin becomes involved with area growers concerning the effects of the drought upon the vineyards. A suspicious car accident has personal impact for Benjamin and deeper implications which lead him down the road to uncover the mystery. Once again, you feel you've entered a world of the genteel upper crust and old money. I enjoyed this story far more than the previous book in the series. A perfect early summer read. Thus far, you can pick up any book in this series and not be lost reading out of sequence.

Family relations, friendship, murder, vineyards, drought, old cars, cigars, treatment of illegal immigrant workers, attraction, jealousy and wine.” —4-star Goodreads review
