    The Champagne Conspiracy by Ellen Crosby is the 7th book in the 'Wine Country Mysteries' series that takes place in Virginia So far this is my favorite and earns 45 star What a roller coast ride for an avid genealogist historian wine lover and cozy fanThree families all connected to Lucie Montgomery the main character in the series A secret affair with President Harding in the early 20th century A famous California winery with a potential change in ownership A death from a century ago then another one happening in current times Chock full of mystery and connections I couldn't put this one down At times the overly complex set of relationships and time period needed some additional attention and re read but that's what happens in a genealogical mystery I loved itBetween the explanation for how champagne or sparkling wine is created and the extra marital affairs President Warding had I hadn't been familiar I felt like I learned so much in this book It pushes the line from cozy mystery into mid range mystery but I was totally fine with it It added a little something extra this time and that can be a fun changeThe characters evolve in this book too uinn and Lucie's relationship reaches a new level Her cousin Dominiue is presented with an amazing opportunity Her brother Eli grows up It's such a fascinating family I really want the youngest sister to come back for a visit againAlready ordered the next one can't wait to read it

    My review from USA TodayThe cozy mystery often gets tagged as lightweight when in fact the best cozies are freuently about the redemption we find in community and friendship a serious subject indeed In The Champagne Conspiracy her charming funny seventh novel set in Virginia’s wine country – I didn’t know it was there either – Ellen Crosby has written a superior cozy narrated by winemaker Lucie Montgomery She has two mysteries to solve when she’s not contemplating tannins – a death potentially a murder in a family friend’s retirement community and the murky history of one of her employee’s grandparents Coming deep in the series The Champagne Conspiracy can feel a bit crowded for newcomers and it’s guilty here and there of the Stepford sunniness of its genre But it has tight plotlines and in Lucie a winning heroine her personal troubles ameliorated by the acceptance of an endearing circle of friends

    I love this series Unfortunately I didn't read it in the proper order but it didn't make any difference As with all of Ms Crosby's novels that I've read the plot and characters are intriguing and interesting And the plot was one that grabbed me from the start and didn't let me go until the very endI highly recommend this series The combination of mystery and history has caught me againThank you to NetGalley and St Martin's Press Minotaur Books for the opportunity to read and review this book My apologies that it took so long

    The Champagne Conspiracy by Ellen Crosby is book 7 of the Wine Country mystery series set in contemporary Virginia I was first drawn to the series because I didn't realize Virginia had a wine making region I continue the series because I enjoy the sympathetic character of the protagonist Lucie Montgomery For full enjoyment of this book read the prior books in the series Otherwise the many relationships and eccentric personalities that are key to the solution would be confusingWhen Lucie discovers a beautiful 1930s flapper style dress in an old trunk in the attic her business manager Francesca urges her to wear it to the Valentine's Day gala the winery plans to benefit a local homeless shelter Soon after Lucie sees a photo of her great grandmother Lucy wearing the dress Lucie's joy in the dress is soon marred by discovery of a long concealed scandal revealed when her winemaker uinn is confronted by his hostile cousin Gino Of course Lucie wants to know the facts and she begins digging into Gino uinn's family history Faith mother of Lucie's best friend Kit lives in the luxurious Foxhall Manor an assisted living community on an historic estate Faith is convinced that her friend Roxanna in the next room to Faith's was murdered and wants Lucie to investigate Faith's daughter Kit a journalist and son Bobby a policeman believe Roxy died a natural death Lucie's affection for Faith overrides her common sense reaction that Faith's fears are unfounded and she agrees to try and find out who was shouting in Roxy's room the day before she died Roxy's will had startled everyone she left her wealth to her granddaughter Uma in England whom she had never mentioned The gorgeous redhead has come to town to claim her inheritance and alienated everyone with her hostile attitude Roxy's nephew Mac McDonald former boyfriend of Lucie's who still carries a torch is in financial trouble due to a Ponzi scheme in a previous book He was expecting to inherit from his aunt before the surprising will Lucie's cousin Dominiue owner and chef of the local upscale inn has an upcoming interview a test meal to ualify for a job as White House Chef Lucie is proud of her cousin but sad if she will be moving awayLucie's investigations put her in mortal danger and leave her too injured to carry out her normal duties at the winery It's time to bottle their wine Bottling euipment is too expensive for a small winery to own and install for once yearly use; they hire a service that brings a van with all the euipment By the time of the Valentine's Day gala Lucie connects all the plot threads and solves the many mysteries affecting her friends and loved ones just in time for a very happy ending

    Never having read this series before I was curious to see if this book would work on its own and whether information would be presented in a way to keep the major players in the story identifiable The relationship with Lucie and uinn did take some adjustment to understand their dynamic but the characterizations are so present that it wasn’t long before that dynamic was presented Plenty of other secondary characters sure to be familiar with those who have read the series presented themselves and understanding everyone’s roles and relationships to the plot and one another did take much if not all of the book and unfolded in ways that made sense The villain in this story was wonderfully complex with his fingers in many different subplots all coming clear at the very end Intermixing history and the politics of the Harding era was a nice touch that helped to set both the reasons and a depth to the feud that made sense and had me continually engaged Not over dramatized or laced with red herrings to increase readers’ tension the story was reasonable in pacing and never had moments of “oh get on with it” that interrupted the flow Truly intriguing with plenty of characters that I am curious about and would like to see of Hope being a particular favorite I’ve added earlier titles in this series to be read during my leisure time I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review I was not compensated for this review all conclusions are my own responsibilityThis review was originally posted on I am Indeed

    This series is set in a small town in Virginia outside of DC and centers around a small family run vineyard Lucie has taken her family business that her father almost ran into the ground and turned it around Her vineyard manager uinn has been with her throughout the process They work well together in the business but their personal relationship is anything but smoothThis book centers around an event that happened in the 1920's All of the primary players are dead but their descendants find themselves trying to sort out what really happened and how it is affecting their lives today Lucie's great aunt uinn's great grandparents and Mac's aunt all have a history together Throw in an older women's death with her friend swearing it was murder and a visit from a long lost relative in England and you have a great murder mystery bookI really enjoyed this book The mystery was interesting and complex I didn't really figure out all of what was going on and I really liked that There are really three different mysteries that are interwoven with one of them going back to the 20's My only issue is the relationship between uinn and Lucie I think she could do better with someone who treat's her better I am very interested to see where their relationship goes in the next book
