Jessica Fletcher must solve a wine country caper when she takes a trip to Napa Valley in this mystery in in the long-running series.

Jessica Fletcher is visiting California wine country while doing research for her next book, and invites her old friend, Scotland Yard detective George Sutherland to join her at a cozy Bed and Breakfast. No sooner do they arrive than they find the valley abuzz over the murder of a waiter at the restaurant owned by infamous ex-Hollywood heavyweight Bill Ladington. Ladington's blatant womanizing and involvement in a bitter vineyard land dispute have already marked him as a dubious character--and a possible suspect.

But when Ladington turns up dead himself from a supposed "suicide," Jessica knows that a murderer is on the loose--and with a little help from George, she must try and bottle up a motive for murder from an extensive list of less-than-vintage suspects...

The Murder She Wrote series on TV was one of those special past times that I shared with my Kocum. As I got older the novels presented another way to have that cozy comforting feeling from times gone. I never read them in order but just when the mood or need strikes me. This was one a good one but I would have to say not on my list of the better ones. Jessica Fletcher and her knack of getting wrapped into a murder investigation was expected but the backdrop was described in wonderful detail. The cast of the Ladington mansion were people who leave an unpleasant impression as a whole but Jessica does not fail to brighten the pages. A great way to spend the afternoon or a weekend in the wine country of California.
