A Vintage Murder, by Janet Smith
Seattle attorney Annie Macpherson is stunned to receive a desperate phone message from her old high school friend, Taylor North. They haven’t spoken in seventeen years, ever since the bitter fight involving Taylor’s violent boyfriend–and eventual husband–Steven Vick. So, with trepidation and a touch of dread, Annie rushes to Yakima Valley, where Taylor owns a winery, and discovers a curious truth.
In the last six months–after Taylor threw Steven off the land and out of her life–threatening events have begun to plague the North Faire Winery. Bottles and corks vanish, spray paint spoils the ripe grapes, salt is sifted into the wine. But the worst is yet to come when a bludgeoned body is found–and Taylor is the prime suspect.
A Vintage Murder (226 pages) is the third book in the Annie MacPherson Mystery Series, which began with Sea of Troubles.
