“As usual, apart from the enjoyable suspense, there were great descriptions of the landscape (not only the wine region, but also the famous Cordouan lighthouse). As for the wine, I enjoyed the historical details and the explanations on issues such as the effect of extreme heat on vineyards and the complex problem of the cork taint. There’s even the question of illegal Moroccans working in France.
VERDICT: Fun short cozy packed with suspense, historical details, explanations of issues related to growing wine, and even social problems in France. Grab a glass and enjoy!” —Words and Peace. Read full review here.
