Series Name: A Virginia Wine Country Mystery
Main Character: Lucie Montgomery
When Lucie Montgomery meets up with glamorous Rebecca Natale, an old college friend, during Washington, D.C.’s cherry blossom season, she doesn’t suspect a set-up. Soon Rebecca is missing -- along with an antique silver wine cooler looted when British troops burned the White House during the War of 1812. As Lucie’s relationship with her winemaker Quinn Santori reaches a turning point, she tries to uncover the truth behind whether Rebecca’s disappearance was suicide, murder—or an elaborate hoax to disappear.
