Winter has come to the Montgomery Estate Vineyard in Atoka,
Virginia. Lucie Montgomery and winemaker Quinn Santori have
decided to make champagne, a first for the vineyard.
But then Gino Tomassi, Quinnâ€™s uncle, turns up on their
doorstep one afternoon, demanding help in solving the
mystery of what happened to Zara Tomassi, the first wife of
his grandfather, who died in a San Francisco hotel in 1923
under suspicious circumstances. And it seems thereâ€™s no
coincidence that her death came the day after President
Warren Harding passed away in that same hotel. Gino needs
answers before his blackmailer takes him for all heâ€™s
worthâ€”or exposes an explosive family secret.
Lucie searches for what happened almost a hundred years ago
as she delves into Prohibition-era Washington, D.C.â€”a town
of bootlegging and duplicity, jazz clubs and speakeasies.
But then the investigation turns deadly, threatening Lucie,
her relationship with Quinn, and the vineyard, as they
realize someone is still out there nearly a century later
who will go to any lengths to keep the truth about Zaraâ€™s
death a buried secret.
