Winemaker Lucie Montgomery is shocked when old bones are
unearthed on her property, which propels her to uncover
shocking secrets about her family's past
Itâ€™s harvest season at Montgomery Estate Vineyardâ€”the
busiest time of year for winemakers in Atoka, Virginia. A
skull is unearthed near Lucie Montgomeryâ€™s family cemetery,
and the discovery of the bones coincides with the arrival of
handsome, wealthy aristocrat Jean-Claude de Marignac. Heâ€™s
come to be the head winemaker at neighboring La Vigne
Cellars, but heâ€™s no stranger to Lucieâ€”he was her first
crush twenty years ago when she spent a summer in France.
Not long after his arrival, Jean-Claude is found dead, and
while there is no shortage of suspects who are angry or
jealous of his ego and overbearing ways, suspicion falls on
Miguel Otero, an immigrant worker at La Vigne, who recently
quarreled with Jean-Claude. When Miguel disappears, Lucie
receives an ultimatum from her own employees: prove Miguelâ€™s
innocence or none of the immigrant community will work for
her during the harvest. As Lucie hunts for Jean-Claudeâ€™s
killer and continues to search for the identity of the
skeleton abandoned in the cemetery, she is blindsided by a
decades-old secret that shatters everything she thought she
knew about her family. Now facing a wrenching emotional
choice, Lucie must decide whether itâ€™s finally time to tell
the truth and hurt those she loves the most, or keep silent
and let past secrets remain dead and buried.
