Praise

“A gentle reminder to slow down and smell the grapes. . . . [Walker] beguiles the reader.” —The New York Times Book Review
 
“Captivating. . . . Sure to appeal to readers with a palate for mysteries with social nuance and understated charm.” —The Wall Street Journal

“The real pleasure of the book is the place itself. . . . As readers are drawn into wine-stomping parties, truffle omelet dinners, and the aged dignity of a French hunting hound, the narrative tension gathers.” —Houston Chronicle

“Affectionate . . . Engrossing . . . Gripping . . . Walker’s mystery is written with a polished prose and an authority that’s shoulders above most crime fiction.” —Beverly Hills Courier

“Romance, intrigue, and many a fine glass of wine await in Walker’s charming second mystery set in idyllic Saint-Denis . . . Walker serves up wry wit, suspense, and a host of captivating characters . . . Oenophiles and armchair travelers alike will enjoy spending time in this lovely, lively part of France.” —Booklist (Starred review)
 
“Lyrical . . . Walker evokes his French community’s celebrations of wine, food, love, and friendship with obvious affection but without sentimentality. His villagers are no more immune from modern times than the rest of us—they just drink better wine.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“Walker blends food, wine, community, history, tradition, and general love of the Perigord . . . A poem to the region.” —Kirkus Reviews
