I'm so happy to have author 
J.A. Lang 
on the blog today with her new book 
CHEF MAURICE 
AND THE WRATH OF GRAPES
Book 2 in the Chef Maurice Mystery series


In the rarefied world of wine collecting, murder isn’t exactly a barrel of laughs… 

An invitation to dinner at the home of renowned wine collector Sir William Burton-Trent soon finds Chef Maurice in the middle of an all-too-real murder mystery party, when Sir William is found dead in his own wine cellar. 

The guests are acting all innocent, but which one is only playing the part? The pushy Californian film director? The seductive French winemaker? 

Or could it be, against all narrative decency, the butler who did it? 

With the help of food critic friend Arthur Wordington-Smythe, a large kipper sandwich, and the newly formed Cochon Rouge Wine Appreciation Society, Chef Maurice must get to the bottom of matters before events turn decidedly sour… 

Also in this series: -Chef Maurice and a Spot of Truffle (Book #1)

MY REVIEW


This second installment in the Chef Maurice Mystery series was absolutely wonderful. Like a fine wine, it seems this series will keep getting better with age.

Ms. Lang certainly knows how to pen a wonderful story that draws the reader in. Her talent for writing a first rate mystery shows in this well plotted tale that kept me guessing right until the end.

Author J.A. Lang has created quite a character with Chef Maurice. He can be a little cranky but you can’t help but like him. His character reminds me of a blend of Poirot and Columbo. And the style in which the author writes brings to mind Golden Age mysteries such as those by Agatha Christie mixed with a current feel.

CHEF MAURICE AND THE WRATH OF GRAPES is a delightful bouquet that will fill your senses!

  1. Yay, another Chef Maurice book to devour. I'm crossing my fingers & hoping , as I'm the first to comment, that I'll be chosen the winner. I'd love to share the Wrath of Grapes with the small rural MS library where I work.
