If you're on a diet, you may not want to read this series. The Gourmet Detective's author is a Cordon Bleu-trained chef, and he loves describing various foods and the wines that go with them.
The story takes place in Provence, with side trips to Monaco, and abandoned towns. The owners of a large winery want to know why a wee winery is offering to buy their vineyard for a price way over market value. The Gourmet Detective is hired to find the answer. He was not hired to find all the bodies, but hey, it's a mystery.
This is a cozy mystery, or as I call it, fun fluff. A great read for the beach, or if it's winter, read in front of the fireplace.
