The murder takes place at a wine tasting party at the beginning of the book like all the murders in The Tea Shop Murder Mysteries. A body turns up in a wine barrel that happens to be the son of the owner of the winery. He was a drug user so the suspect was a friend who could have supplied his drugs or others who wanted the land the winery stood on or on and on. Theodosia does solve this murder case in the end like in all the other books. You want to keep reading to find out who done it.
