Roxanne Samson, a sweet and sensible gardening expert, finds a wealthy wine connoisseur dead in her city garden. The deceased was the boss of Georgi Algarve, who is a flamboyant wine aficionado and manages the Vinho Verde Wine Bar. Roxanne and Georgi, the impulsive and endearing duo, haphazardly search for clues to assist New London's prominent Detective Dan Morrison.

In between the mayhem, Roxanne learns more about poisonous plants and Georgi educates patrons at fancy wine dinners. Little do they know, they are in the middle of a professional's game of danger and intrigue.
Roses, Wine & Murder is a modern-day mystery laced with New England history, scenic vineyards, and a harrowing Coast Guard rescue. A thrilling madcap adventure about the world of wine, which promises to entertain you with plenty of flair and foul play!
