Everyone liked Kevin Harlan, even the person who beat him to death with a rusty shovel...
Claire de Montagne, proprietress of St. Helena's Violet Vineyards, has a husband who would rather date a teenager than raise one, an emotionally unstable daughter with a violent ex-boyfriend and a staff of two who treat her more like a mother than a boss. But she can handle all of that. After all, things could be worse.
Claire is preparing for the bottling of Violet's Vintner's Reserve, hoping to stave off bankruptcy for one more year, when her neighbor, Kevin Harlan, is found murdered in her vineyard. That's awful enough, but when her daughter is arrested for the murder Claire is forced to pursue the real killer on her own, placing herself and everyone she loves in the line of fire.
If you're a fan of Sue Grafton, Diane Mott Davidson or Janet Evanovich, take a 'Look Inside,' Claire de Montagne might just be the heroine for you!
