Especially when there is food involved!
Death in the Vines is a wonderful new novel from writer M. L. Longworth that combines all of the above and more (it's set in Provence!)--a wonderful and breezy read that's just perfect for these hot, late-spring days.
Here's the description of the book from Goodreads:
Francophiles, and foodies will adore this who-done-it with a beautiful European setting. In her riveting follow-up to Death at the Chateau Bremont and Murder in the Rue Dumas, M. L. Longworth evokes the sights and sounds of late-summer Provence, where the mistral blows and death comes in the most unexpected places.Delicious, no? Just the sort of book to curl up with (bottle of wine and baguette with cheese is optional, but strongly recommended.)
Olivier Bonnard, the owner of Domaine Beauclaire winery, is devastated when he discovers the theft of a priceless cache of rare vintages. Soon after, Monsieur Gilles d’Arras reports that his wife, Pauline, has vanished from their lavish apartment. As Judge Antoine Verlaque and Commissioner Paulik tackle the case (with a little help from Marine Bonnet), they receive an urgent call: Bonnard has just found Madame d’Arras—dead in his vineyard.
