A Crime of Passion

Please choose a format above.

Mary Higgins Clark has done it again. And we're so sorry!

Frederica Dumay loves her new handsome husband. Even though he knows nothing about wine or business, she puts him in charge of her half of a Canadian winery. On the night of the new vintage launch her business partner's wife is found dead in a fountain. Freddi thinks her partner's new, hot, wine-guzzling, bikini-rocking girlfriend with a weird accent did it, so she enlists the help of an old computer geek boyfriend who suggests looking into her new husband's background instead.  

Everyone seems guilty except the loyal maid! Freddi is not sure who to trust or where to turn, but most importantly, whether to pair Burgundy or Sauvignon Blanc with poutine!

Written by: Bridget Nelson, Mary Jo Pehl, Matthew J. Elliott, Jason, Miller, Zach Shatzer.
