Summary

Before she ties the knot, she’ll have to uncover a plot . . . “An irresistible sleuth.” —Leslie Meier, New York Times–bestselling author of Irish Parade Murder   With her wedding day mere weeks away, home stager Caprice De Luca is busy arranging every last detail for the reception at Rambling Vines Winery—a stylish venue she redecorated two years earlier. But the closer the bride-to-be gets to saying “I do,” the more a celebration at Rambling Vines seems like a terrible mistake.   As financial mishaps and unhappy customers put the winery in the red, an unidentified criminal plots to sour the business’s already ailing reputation. Worst of all, a romance from co-owner Michelle Dodd’s past could leave a permanent stain on Caprice’s best friend’s current love life. When Michelle’s aloof husband is found stabbed to death on a chaise lounge in the tasting room, Caprice vows to name the calculating culprit and set things right before her dream nuptials dissolve into a deadly nightmare . . .   “[A] talented author.” —RT Book Reviews
