You would think that living in the south of France surrounded by vineyards in a beautiful home would be a dream come true? Not so for Maggie who followed her boyfriend there when he inherited the house and land from an uncle. He had been an expat living with Maggie in the USA--now she was the expat living in a tiny town and barely spoke any french!! They luckily met and became friendly with other Americans living there. Luckily her boyfriend loved to cook--but she had to do all the shopping-not easy when you can't speak the language! Most of the village store owners were friendly.

Her boyfriend decided he wanted to be a vintner if only for the year-he spent most of his time learning about the vines out in the fields. With the help of neighbors he even managed to turn the grapes into wine.

Of course not everyone wanted them to stay--and pulled some really nasty tricks. Then one of their friends was found dead in their basement--turns out this was not the only murder associated with this house. Maggie decided to try and figure out who did both the murders. Then someone set their vines on fire---and Maggie and one of her friends discovered who the culprit was--both times--of course they had to be saved by the person who Maggie thought was guilty.

After all that went on do they decide to stay in France and grow grapes? You really are not going to expect who the murderer was!!

When her boyfriend inherits an ancient vineyard in France, Maggie Newberry quits her job in Atlanta to accompany him for a year abroad. They settle in the tiny village of St-Buvard, but murder has gone long before them and follows close behind. Murder a la Carte brings Atlanta copywriter Maggie Newberry to the brink of two connected murders—both committed in her home—and both poised to threaten everything she holds dear. When Maggie agrees to move to France with her boyfriend—a French ex-confidence man who has just inherited a house and vineyard—she doesn’t expect her year of French market shopping and weekend trips to Paris to be interrupted by a vicious murder in her living room. Or that the bloody violence that occurred on their front doorstep sixty years earlier after the end of the Second World War might be connected. If you want to save the price of a ticket to the south of France this year, pick up Murder a la Carte instead. It will give you a delicious escape into the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of Provence—all tucked nicely within the framework of a tightly woven mystery that will keep you guessing until the very last page.
