Someone wants to buy the 500 acre farm and vineyard located at the foothills of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains which has belonged to Lucie Montgomery’s family since colonial days. And they are apparently willing to commit murder to get it.
When Lucie’s father Leland dies under questionable circumstances, the vineyard passes to his three children. But Lucie, who has been living in France for several years, quickly discovers that her brother and sister can’t wait to nail up the “For Sale” sign while she is the lone holdout for reviving the ailing winery.
All too soon it’s clear she’s the new target of whoever wants her family’s land. With a growing list of suspects — including the new cut-rate vintner her father hired shortly before he died — Lucie must act quickly to uncover the identity of a killer who seems disturbingly close to home.
