Explanation of the Book:

Twenty-nine-year-old NYPD detective Max Maguire flies to France to attend her friend Chloe Marceau’s wedding at a grand estate in the Valley of the Marne in Champagne, an hour and a half east of Paris. She meets the older and more urbane Olivier Chaumont, a juge d’instruction, or examining magistrate, and experiences a fairy tale evening. But when Chloe’s widowed aunt, the beautiful and successful Lea de Saint-Pern, is found murdered after the wedding dinner, Max and Olivier are shocked back into their respective professional roles. But to Max’s chagrin, Olivier is put in charge of the investigation and she is banned from an official investigative role. The value of vineyards and champagne companies is at an all-time high, and Olivier learns that there are several people attempting to gain control of Lea’s business at the time of her death. Max, with her quintessential American girl next door look (belying a gritty interior), takes a stealthier approach. Quietly using the sleuthing skills inherited from her famous detective dad, she insinuates herself into the victim’s family until their long-held secrets begin to spill out like marbles from an overturned dish. After another family member is found dead on the day of Lea’s funeral, however, Max puts her career, and her tentative relationship with Olivier, in jeopardy as her determination to find the murderer—and prove herself in the process—takes over. While sipping the finest beverage in the world and tasting food that leaves the reader salivating between interrogations and pursuits, the bi-cultural detective duo come to discover that they are unbeatable when it comes to bringing criminals to justice.

Explanation of the Book:

In Bordeaux: The Bitter Finish, thirty-year-old, NYPD detective Max Maguire returns to France as bodyguard to a famous American wine critic. But when her client turns up dead in her hotel room, and a precious bottle of wine goes missing, Max has no choice but to team up with examining magistrate and former lover, Olivier Chaumont. Max, using aggressive tactics learned from her homicide detective father, stays one step ahead of Olivier in the investigation. Olivier's more elegant approach takes them into the heart of Bordeaux society where he is sure the murderer and some fine dining lurks.

Explanation of the Book:

"Burgundy: Twisted Roots is an intriguing and multi-layered novel about love, wine and intrigue, steeped in a deep knowledge of the seductive French lifestyle, from wild boar hunts to wine harves feasts, with side servings of skullduggery and inheritance laws." —MARTIN WALKER, bestselling author of the Bruno, Chief of Police series Max Maguire of the NYPD, daughter of a legendary NY cop and a French mother disowned by her aristocratic family when she married, met examining magistrate Olivier Chaumont over murder at the wedding of an old friend in the Champagne wine region. They remained on-again-off-again partners and lovers over more murder again, this time in Bordeaux. And now, six months later, Max is on her way to Burgundy where it's time to give up her promising career and commit—or split. Murder occurs. There's a mystery girl, American. Fractured families. Motives aplenty. But the story's real fascination lies in two things French: the wine culture and French inheritance laws which are convoluted and guaranteed to spark family wars, even unto death. And the French justice system functions differently which frustrates Max, an action-oriented, straightforward investigator, and causes some friction with Olivier. Janet Hubbard wraps up her Vengeance in the Vineyard trilogy with a surprise and solutions that will please readers.
