Peter Mayle once again returns to the beautiful but complicated world of Provence, to find that the highly competitive boutique wine trade has hidden depths that cannot be hidden by the sunny grape arbors above the ground. Mayle's usual fish-out-of-water British protagonist comes to inspect a Provencal vineyard left to him by his newly-dead uncle. While handling the details of the estate, he is distracted by two gorgeous women, but not distracted enough to overlook that his caretaker desperately wants the vineyard's land. When a beautiful young Californian arrives on the scene, with both a credible claim to the vineyard and a fount of viticultural knowledge, the plot begins to twist and curve into elegant complication and release.More
"Happily snide (and knowledgeable) [with] wicked turns of phrase." (Chicago Sun-Times) "Mayle makes Provence sound like the most enticing place this side of paradise. Reservations anyone?" (People)
