When a tornado rips through Montgomery Estate Vineyard, it not only destroys some of Lucie Montgomery's newest grapevines, it also unearths an old grave. After the dead man is identified as a former business associate of Lucie's father, it seems everyone in Lucie's hometown has already decided Leland Montgomery is a murderer. As the evidence piles up against him, Lucie sets out to prove her father's innocence. But Lucie has more on her mind than a dead body. Her new vineyard manager has accused her winemaker, Quinn Santori, of abusing the vineyard's migrant workers, while Lucie's relationship with Quinn grows increasingly more complicated. Meanwhile, Lucie has given permission to a group of Civil War reenactors to recreate a local battle on her farm. But when one of the participants is shot with live ammunition, Lucie wonders whether it was an accident or an attempt at murder.

Professional reviews

"Listeners may wish to sip a glass of Riesling while they listen to this, as the mellow feeling produced by the wine will nicely complement the narrator's drawling voice. When a tornado rips through Lucie Montgomery's vineyard in Atoka, Virginia, it leaves an unearthed grave in its wake. This sets tongues wagging, and Lucie becomes determined to protect her father's name. Narrator Christine Marshall's voicing of Lucie is clear and consistent. While she is less successful with a couple of the supporting characters, she dus a great job with the young male undergraduate student, the old village gossip, and Lucie' s brother when he has imbibed a little too much. These last two are particularly amusing. A.E.B. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
