Here's a bit more about the books:

Blood is Thicker than Beaujolais
Wine writer Ezra Brant and his wife Connie travel to the remote French village of Haut St. Antoine for a relaxing vacation while Ezra reports on the release of the Beaujolais Nouveau. But after a visit to a local cave cellar Ezra ends up reporting a body to the police instead.

Troubled by the apparent lack of interest in finding the murderer and the village's silence about the victim, Ezra gets on the case – much to Connie's chagrin. While the other tourists join in the idyllic harvest celebration, Ezra and Connie are drawn relentlessly into a dangerous web of murder, fraud and international intrigue.

The Beast of Barbaresco
For wine writer Ezra Brant, the trip to the picturesque Piedmontese village of Barbaresco to help judge the annual wine competition was supposed to be a restful interlude – despite all the talk of a serial killer the locals have dubbed "the Beast."

But when a fellow wine writer disappears without a trace, Ezra has no choice but to investigate. Could his colleague have become the latest victim of the Beast? Or does his disappearance have to do with a story he had been pursuing? Ezra puts his wine knowledge to work in finding the truth, in spite of all the obstacles set before him... including a charming Irish redhead.

Death on the Douro
When Matthew Sykes, scion of an old port shipping family, extends an invitation to wine writer Ezra Brant to attend his quinta's bicentennial celebration in Oporto, Ezra is delighted to accept. An all-expenses-paid trip to sunny Portugal is just what he needs, and the visit will dovetail nicely with his research for a book on the history of port wine.

But when Ezra arrives, he finds his friend Sykes has more on his mind than the anniversary fete. A series of strange and sinister incidents around the Quinta San Pedro point to a deliberate attempt to derail the big party. When murder becomes part of the picture, Ezra becomes more determined than ever to find out what really lies behind the events.
