"When book-restoration expert Brooklyn Wainwright temporarily relocates to her parents' place in Northern California, she finds that wooden barrels aren't the only things buried in the wine caves of Sonoma... Excited to explore the secrets of wine country, Brooklyn attends an excavation of the caves hidden deep under her parents' commune-and the findings are explosive. A room is unearthed, and it contains a treasure trove of artwork, rare books, a chest of jewelry ... and a perfectly mummified body. A closer examination of the murdered man's possessions reveals a valuable first edition of Jules Verne's A Journey to the Center of the Earth. Hidden in the book is a secret map that unveils an even greater hoard of treasures brought to California by French winemakers fleeing the Nazi invasion with the commune leader's grandfather, Anton, among them. As reporters and art appraisers flock to Sonoma to see the precious bounty, questions begin to rise-did Anton hide these items to protect them, or did he steal them for himself? Who is the mysterious man left for dead inside the cave? But not all crime is buried in the past. When a new presence threatens the town's peace, Brooklyn decides to do a little excavating of her own and solve the mystery of the treasure before anyone else is written off"--… (lisätietoja)

Brooklyn and Derek are summering in Dharma (California wine country) while their apartment is bein renovated. The Dharma Commune (where Brooklyn grew up and her family lives) is having their wine storage cave enlarged but when the workmen come across a bricked up cavern, Brooklyn is the one who notices the body during the exploration. Not only is there a body which appears to be mummified, but that are hundreds of antiques and pieces of artwork. Where did it all come from? How did it get bricked up? Who is the dead man?

The ensuing search for answers was completely mesmerizing, the historical aspects interesting. And as usual Brooklyn and Derek alluring in their connection to each other and the people around them. ( )

This is not a good book. The only redeeming feature is that, once i realized how truly bad it was a third of the way in, I still needed to know who’d done the deed and why, so I ended up skimming the rest of the book to find out. An incomplete list of things which bugged me:

the protagonist is not a strong personality
the protagonist’s boyfriend reads almost entirely like a blend of wish-fulfillment and “well, I need someone to know this thing”
whole pages were devoted to book restoration, wine tasting, and kittens without any link back to the mystery, so everything dragged
most of the book and wine facts read almost like encyclopedia articles and for the wine especially, were shared in-world with people who should really know them already
the solutions to the mysteries were anti-climactic and not just because I didn’t care enough about any of the characters
the protagonist kept reminding us of things we only learned a chapter or two ago (like, “my boyfriend, who’s British, did I mention he’s from Britain?”)
the narration otherwise felt really clunky
a lot of the setting and secondary characters felt twee and flat
there was a string of coincidences that had next to no bearing on the plot in the end so why was it even there?

Now, I know this is part of an already-started series, so maybe if I’d read from the start I’d have more connection to everything, but good writing to me means being able to make readers care regardless of which book they pick up. I’ve also come to expect better of my cozy plots too. It also doesn’t perform well on the diversity front (there are two POC, one of whom is white-passing, and no other minorities I could see) but at least it’s not actively bigoted?

2/10 ( )

Very pleasant and engaging mystery. For me, the ending was a bit unsatisfying (in that it turned out just how one would expect it to do in real life: independent actions that only looked to be part of a larger, complex plan), and the "bibliophile" angle was minimal. But still, it works very well as the latest (ninth) episode in the evolving storyline of the protagonists. ( )

It would have been better without all the "I's".... I realize it was all a part of introduction to the character, her family, background, but it was too chatty for my taste..... so, minus 1 star.
The story once I skimmed past all of those wasted pages was fine, even interesting....

Excavating for for a new wine cellar on a Northern California commune a hidden room is uncovered. The inside the room is filled with exquisite antiques and a mummified body with a valise. In the valise is a rare book, inside the book is a treasure map that leads to a hidden room beyond the one where the body was found.

As it turns out, the treasure was that of a village in "safe-keeping" of a family that fled France as Nazi occupation began... When the other families arrived from France to settle & claim their valuables, the one with the knowledge had died and there was no hope of recovery.

With the opening of the buried rooms the local families have hope of regaining their heirlooms, but a murderer is terrorizing the commune. ( )

Brooklyn is back in Darma with Derek. A mystery is found in Guru Bob's backyard and family history. At least Brooklyn knows she is not a detective; she doesn;t seem to work much either........ ( )
