Review:

"Judge Antoine Verlaque, the sleuth in this civilized series, discharges his professional duties with discretion. But we're here to taste the wines, which are discussed by experts like Hippolyte Thebaud, a former wine thief, and served in beautiful settings like a 300-year-old stone farmhouse. So many bottles, so many lovely views. A reader might be forgiven for feeling woozy." - Marilyn Stasio, "The New York Times" "Though the plot is hair-raising, what keeps you glued to this mystery is its vivid portrait of everyday life in Aix, which deftly juxtaposes the elegance of the city...with quotidian woes and pleasures." - Oprah.com "What follows is a lovely, almost cozy police procedural that deserves to be read with a glass of wine in hand. Longworth paints such a loving picture of Provence that it's likely you'll start planning a vacation trip to France the moment you set the book down." - "The Denver Post" "As much as the mystery intrigues-in this case some intertwined crimes involving a local winery, a missing elderly woman, and a rich man's suspicious construction project-what really makes Longworth's books enjoyable are the atmosphere and details that she includes of the South of France." - "The Seattle Post Intelligencer " "This is an intelligently written police procedural with the warm comfort of a baguette with banon cheese." - "Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine" "Enjoyable... the book's real strength is its evocation of place." - "Publisher's Weekly"
