  • Magdalena aka A Bookaholic Swede

    It's a hot summer in Bordeaux and the vineyards are suffering because of the lack of rain. Vine expert Benjamin Cooker's daughter Margaux is visiting and one night she and Antoine Rinetti, a guy she just met that works in a vineyard, is involved in a car accident. But the police soon discover that it was not an accident and Benjamin Cooker and his assistant Virgile begin to snoop around to find why someone would sabotage Rinetti's car.This is the second book I have read in the "A Winemaker Detec [...]

    Having an intimate glimpse into the Cooker clan was wonderful. Peeling the many layers of Benjamin Cooker has been an adventure with every book, but seeing his tender fatherly side in this particular installment was a sweet surprise. A fabulous portrait of a family filled with love, Elizabeth and Margaux come to life as we finally become personable with both as opposed to snippets as in previous narratives. Cooker’s edges soften as we discover the family dynamics up close and personal.Alaux an [...]

    Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley. This installment finds everyone’s favorite wine taster, Benjamin facing a family crisis. It’s a cozy mystery, so one can pretty much figure out how that ends before even opening the book. However, the charm of this series rests not on the mystery but on the Cooker family and the scenery where the series takes place. This series is something that you enjoy not because it is on the level of Ruth Rendell, but because it is a pleasant hour that concerns wine and fo [...]

She is another great character to add to the mix but her life is almost extinguished because she gets in the car of the wrong person.When the car crashes and it is determined that it was not accidental, Benjamin is drawn into discovering who sabotaged the vehicle and why. It is intensely [...]

When she is involved in an accident, it becomes a personal case for Cooker and his young assistan Virgile. Between rivalries and bad feelings, it's hard to know wha [...]

  • Nicola Mansfield

    Another fine entry in the Benjamin Cooker series! I'm in love with these characters and this sixth book is a real family affair. I started with book 2 so from that point on, this is the first time that Cooker's wife plays a role throughout the entire book, it's the first time the much mentioned but never seen office manager actually has a scene but the best part is when Virgile and Margaux finally meet. Cooker is always so playful about Virgile's stereotypical French lover playboy lifestyle, tha [...]

    Do you like wine? Do you like mysteries? If so then I say you should give this series a shot. This was another exciting installment in the Wine Detective series. From the first page I feel as if I am transported straight to France and am right in the midst of this mystery. You will go on a journey of Merdoc and its wine estates while trying to solve this murder mystery. I like how this mystery has wine and food has a part in the story. After reading this book I want to go to France even more. I [...]

  • Clare O'Beara

    The winemakers feel a personal stress when the daughter of Benjamin Cooker is injured in a car accident. Possibly the car was tampered with - was young Margaux, a business student, the intended victim, or the young man who was driving? Cooker and his assistant Virgile drop everything to protect the family. We see this against the backdrop of a hot dry summer, with wine harvests suffering and other issues such as metal screw caps instead of corks being debated. Modern methods are not always welco [...]

  • Donna Maguire

    I really enjoyed this book, its a lovely cosy mystery and it did keep me guessing to the end as to whodunnit and why. The book flows very well and the descriptions of the scenery, food and wine make you feel like you are there. Really nice way to pass a couple of hours. I received a copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for my honest review.

    Mayhem in Margaux, by Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noël Balen, is another great episode from the television series airing in France, and in the line of novels based on the shows, featuring the winemaker detective Ben Cooker, his sidekick Virgile, and other members of his friends and family.

    I received this book from Netgalley for my review.A very nice change. Benjamin's family plays center stage within this round of mystery. Lovely to see his interaction with wife and daughter, even his stroke of jealousy over the gravitational pull between Margaux and Virgile. While the family heads to the coastal resort to escape the unbearable heat, Benjamin becomes involved with area growers concerning the effects of the drought upon the vineyards. A suspicious car accident has personal impact [...]

  • Paul Franco

    Sixth in a series of murder mysteries featuring a wine expert in France, but first I’ve read. Hard for me to figure out all the characters, but not nearly as hard as others where I haven’t started at the beginning. For instance, the main character is incredibly protective of his daughter, partly because of what occurs in this book, but I suspect stuff has happened in previous entries that leads to this quirk. As one would expect, there’s a lot of wine talk, which I gleefully let go over my [...]

  • Heidi Gonzalez

    This book made me wish I could drink wine, unfortunately a sulfite allergy destroys that ability. So with little to no knowledge of wine but feeling mighty thirsty at the end of the book I learned a lot (like the merits of a traditional cork over a screw top in wine bottles!) and had a lot of fun with this book. This cozy mystery intertwined around the wines and vines of France's Wine Country is quick, entertaining read. There isn't the graphic sex and violence accompanying many mystery/thriller [...]

    I enjoyed reading this book. It was a fast, easy read--2 days. It is only about 140 pages, although my kindle edition did not have pages. Wine expert Benjamin Cooker's daughter is nearly killed in a car accident. His friend Police Inspector Barbaroux tells him that the car was sabotaged and Cooker decides to investigate He does discover who caused the accident. There is a fair amount of discussion of various French wines, which might prove boring for some. I give it 4 stars out of 5. I received [...]

  • Jay Williams

    Another great wine inspector tale. This time Benjamin's daughter Margaux is a major player, and she even does some flirting with Virgile that causes consternation. The characters are well-developed, the plot is deliciously twisted, and once again the only problem is the story flies by so quickly, and you really want to spend more time with these people. The book is interesting and educational, well worth reading.
