Description

Foul play at the festival

When her family's winery becomes one of the sponsors at the Lost Pines Food and Wine Festival, Elise Beckett's spirits soar at the chance to help with their booth. But as the festival gets underway, her cheerful mood turns sour when rival vintner Divia Larson is found dead.

With all clues pointing to her grandmother as the prime suspect, Elise and her deputy sheriff boyfriend team up to clear her name. But Divia's murder is as complex as a fine wine, with a strong bouquet of suspicion, bitter notes of betrayal, and more than a hint of danger. Will Elise and Jackson be able to untangle the mess before another victim is corked?

          There’s more foul play in the South Texas wine region in Folger’s lively and entertaining follow-up to her 2013 debut, Grapes of Death. It’s the Lost Pines Food and Wine Festival, and horticulturist Elise Beckett is not about to sit still when Miss Abby, her beloved grandmother, becomes a suspect in the death of Divia Larson, the vindictive wife of Miss Abby’s ex-boyfriend Garrett Larson. The death of chef Grace Vanderhouse, who had hidden ties to Divia, follows. Despite warnings from her boyfriend, hunky Deputy Jackson “Jax” Landry, Elise dives headfirst into the case, corralling her sister, brother, and best friend into snooping with her. The Beckett family is close despite their frequent bickering, and their dialogue rings true. The wine background is also handled well—enough for verisimilitude without overwhelming Folger’s well wrought whodunit. Agent: Christine Wittholm, Book Cents Literary Agency.
