Swiss journalist Saskia Wagner's life is in shambles-she's lost her job and left her callous boyfriend. So when she learns of a summer job on a wine-growing estate in the small French village of Beaumes-de-Venise, she jumps at the chance, hoping it can provide her with the escape she needs to clear her head. But it would seem that where wine flows, trouble follows. Jean-Luc Rougeon, the handsome-but-surly owner of the estate, appears distinctly unsettled by Saskia's presence. And he's t the only one: everyone in the village is behaving oddly toward her. It could just be curiosity about the new girl, but something more seems to be afoot. Unwittingly entangled in her new community, Saskia faces charged emotions. Can this be the identity she'd come to Provence to discover?
