This was a nice little cozy, no murders involved, but a mystery involving possible sabotage at a winery. It's the first in the Winemaker Detective series and includes lots of historical information about the setting that I found a bit tedious at times. However, I've already read the 4th Winemaker Detective novel, Deadly Tasting, which I enjoyed tremendously, so I'm going to stick with this series. I do have to say, though, that I would have enjoyed this one more if something other than spores had turned up in the estate's wine barrels. Thankfully I enjoyed the speech of a bitter, retired old French historian and drunkard almost enough to make up for the lack of bodies.
