I didn't realize this is part of a series when I picked it up - in fact, I didn't figure it out until I got to the end of the book and thought there should be more to the story, so I looked up the author's name and discovered more Wine Country Mystery books. Don't get me wrong - the murder mystery in this one is nicely solved, it's the family story that continues on. The author does a very nice job of getting the reader into the mindset of the winery owners, and there's a wine primer of sorts scattered throughout. I imagine this will continue in succeeding books, along with more of the story on what so far is a very dysfunctional family. And it looks as well that the titles will be alliterative - the next one isThe Chardonnay Charade
