      Disclaimer ARC read via Netgalley courtesy of Le French Press Benjamin Cooker is France s answer to Jessica Fletcher If you have ever seen the old ish series Murder, She Wrote, you know that when Mrs Fletcher shows up, someone dies In real life, people would avoid her like the plague Cooker isn t quite so bad, but even when being inducted into the Wine tasters knightly order, mysteries follow him around like bad pennies Or pieces of cork in wine The mystery in this installment surrounds the appe [...]

      The third book in this charming series is not quite up to par with the previous mystery but still brings plenty of murder, mayhem and wine to the table There is a puzzle, along with two deaths, that must be unravelled and Benjamin Cooker finds himself calling upon an old dying friend, a monk to help him decipher the Latin clues I really enjoyed the Catholic aspect of this particular story The relationship between Cook and Virgile is a warm strong bond between a Catholic and an unbeliever bringin [...]

      The third in the Winemaker Detective series, NIGHTMARE IN BURGUNDY takes our hero Benjamin Cooker away from his native Bordeaux to Burgundy, where he is being named Chevalier du Tastevin by the Knights of the order that are proud of their slogan Never whine, always wine.Which will probably give you a little bit of an indication of the tone of this charming series, set deep in the world of French wine, and the intrigues that seem to pile up alongside it In NIGHTMARE IN BURGUNDY this intrigue revo [...]

    6. Alaina Sloo on said:

      I enjoy this series As mysteries, they are not especially challenging or deeply suspenseful, but they are a pleasant rainy day read And they give you an interesting sense of the distinct cultures of France s wine regions and its wine industry So far, this is one of my favorites in the series for its portrayal of Burgundy culture and history.

    7. Susan on said:

      Benjamin Cooker is in Burgundy to be inducted into a prestigious if archaic organization The story is readable, if not memorable, mainly because of its delicious setting Cooker is full of himself, but the book is short enough to end before he gets on the nerves too much.

    8. Valerie on said:

      Could have been a good mystery, but it fell apart in the end The clues are non existent to the reveal Love the wine history and the wine country descriptions, but there is not enough in this series to keep me reading.

    9. Graham Ellis on said:

      This series of books just gets better and better and as they are all stand alone stories it doesn t matter which order you read them in I fully recommend this book.

      Benjamin Cooker is a winemaker in this French detective series, consulting with vineyard owners and wineries, dispensing his opinion in a popular guidebook and serving on wine juries It s a good life for this half British, half French lover of good wine, food and cigars But just like Jessica Fletcher or any number of cozy amateur detectives, he doesn t go looking for murder It finds him.The series begins with Treachery in Bordeaux, in which wine in three vats of one of his longest friends has go [...]

      My second encounter with this author duo, and I found this installment just as intriguing and engrossing as the first This book, we are transported through the region of Burgundy, the authors ability to bring the scents, scenes and taste of the region to life as Benjamin Cooker heads from his home on the trip of a wine lover s dreams a tasting tour of Burgundy.These are gentle mysteries, although the whodunit is often buried in layers of possibility, the focus is never wholly on a need to solve [...]

      Nightmare in Burgundy A Winemaker Detective Mystery Series is my second read in the series, and I have to say I love it I get so caught up in the wine lore, the French landscape, and local folks, be it Bordeaux or Burgundy that I have to go back for a re read of wine critic and amateur detective Benjamin Cooker s role in the mystery, as he charges ahead to solve the crime with his young assistant Virgile, who s got his eye and bed open for the local ladies This novel even brings in biblical quot [...]

    23. Marina Sofia on said:

      A surprisingly quick read, this book focuses not so much on murder as on a drunken shooting, vandalism and graffiti So a much gentler sort of crime novel, providing also an excellent journey through the French wine country This time Benjamin Cooker ventures further afield, outside his beloved Bordeaux region, to Dijon and Burgundy In between his wine tasting and sight seeing, he gets involved in solving the mystery of the defaced monuments with the help of gentle Citeaux monk, Brother Clement.I [...]

    24. Karen on said:

      I wanted to like this than I did I like Benjamin and Vergile, but they are the only characters who came to life in the book I couldn t figure out why a winemaker was getting involved in the case or why those who seemed to have the puzzle already figured out gave him hints and clues instead of telling him what was happening straight out The police were barely mentioned Not sure I d read another book in the series.

    25. Deb Novack on said:

      Benjamin Cooker is a winemaker turned sleuth He is at a wine tasting event when people start being murdered with graffiti being left at the scene Each saying contained a bible verse, Benjamin goes to his old friend the priest who helps him to try to figure it out Although a short book its storyline was well developed and had good characters I can not wait to read of the Winemakers Mysteries I received this book from the publisher in return for and honest reveiw

    27. Joanne Gass on said:

      I need to stop reading this series The wine tastings and meals are interesting, but not as good as those found in the Bruno series I think what is worst about this one is that the perp does not appear until the last twenty pages of the story She has not been mentioned, interviewed, much less been seen until the mystery is solved No fair, Jean Pierre

    28. Nancy Reynolds on said:

      There is a lot to like in this book especially if you want a lesson in French wines, and the French wine area around Burgundy, and French food I have not read the first two books in this series but I will give them a try.

    29. Bill on said:

      With characters you would wish for friends, superb wines, the French countryside, and a mystery that baffles many, Nightmare in Burgundy is like one these deep and full bodiedwines, always a treat to sit back and enjoy the deep pleasure
