When Lucie Montgomery visits Washington, DC, she doesn’t expect that her reunion with old friend Rebecca Natale is a setup. But Rebecca disappears into thin air after running an errand for her boss, billionaire philanthropist and investment guru Sir Thomas Asher. Also missing: an antique silver wine cooler looted by British soldiers before they burned the White House during the War of 1812. The next morning Lucie identifies Rebecca’s neatly folded clothes found in a rowboat floating in the Potomac River. Is it suicide, murder, or an elaborate scheme to disappear?

    " Really enjoyed the Washington DC scenes. And, as always, enjoyed learning more about the production of wine. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Vera | 2/6/2014

    " This was a compelling read, with the added attraction of taking place in Washington part of the time. I enjoyed seeing places I've seen through Lucie's eyes. One reason I like this series is because Lucie is not perfect, either physically, (she uses a cane following a car accident) or in other ways. Her romance is not a way in the park either. Good read.
