DEATH IN THE VINES is the third installment of Verlaque & Bonnet Provençal Mystery series. The town of Aix-en-Provence in the South of France is charming on its face but wine is disappearing and the body count is growing. The policeman and the academic who date, must put their heads together to solve these crimes.
Every book in the series showcases the beautiful town of Aix and its surrounding environs. There is always discussion of the land, food, and drink. Love the covers of these books; the sketches give them just the right inviting touch. Longworth has the bones to be another Agatha Christie and see no reason why this series would not have the same long life.
While I look forward to returning each and every time and my biggest complaint regarding this series is the time in between. This is a series that my other half and I read together, happens so infrequently it creates a soft spot for them. I think we both secretly hope to visit Aix at some point and drop in on some of the spots in the book.
Although, not quite done with DEATH ON THE VINES I am thrilled to offer one lucky visitor the chance to join me in the South of France through the eyes of M.L. Longworth who happens to reside part-time in Aix which doesn’t hurt.
