Book One

A winery in Napa Valley.  A dead gossip columnist.  And dozens of possible suspects. 

 

Photojournalist Kate McCracken has returned to her childhood home and is

tasked with discovering which potential subject of the blogger’s future exposé was responsible for her murder.  Was it the slumlord, the winery faking its Estate Bottled cabernet, a civil servant skimming funds,  a developer in bed with the mob, or the ex-boyfriend?  And to make matters more challenging, Kate has to work alongside her former teenage heartthrob, who is now with the Sheriff’s Department.
