Book cover for Pinot Red or Dead? (The Wine Trail Mysteries #3)
Unlike Manhattan, where I had to rely on storefront windows to distinguish the seasons, in the Finger Lakes everything was left to nature.

‘Every woman has to have something which singles her out, which catches the eye, which makes her the centre of attention.
This makes me smile to re-read, because I believe it is exactly what women who want to be desirable think in secret. They consider whether they have a good feature or particular charm, and they work on it. You can see models who know their best side, and actors who know how to ‘turn it on’. Of course, more seriously, it’s about selling yourself in a world which regards women as commodities.
