Cozy Mystery Saturday: The Merlot Murders
This cozy mystery is entertaining and filled with historical references to Thomas Jefferson and the American wine industry. If you enjoy a nice glass of wine and a good cozy mystery you might enjoy this series. The characters are not very likeable for the most part but they are interesting. Lucie is not as pleasant as most cozy mystery heroines but she grows on you. After all she is struggling to accept her disability from the car accident. I think that I like to a read a book ocassionally where the characters aren’t all sweet and fun. These characters are more complex and have definite issues. Like most of us they are slightly dysfunctional.
All of the questions are not answered in this first book of the series. I enjoyed the read and play on reading more from this series. If you are looking for light reading for entertainment this is a good place to start.
I give this a 3 out of 5. Again, a worthwhile read.
