    "Great story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The stories in this series, starting with this first book, are beautifully told and narrated. The descriptions are vivid and the characters well-developed. So glad there are 20 of these!

    "Good first in series about French t wine-making."

    I liked the background of characters and the region. Sometimes confused by characters. But enjoyed very much. I'll probably buy the next book in this long series that looks promising!!

    "Great for the wine lover"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Treachery in Bordeaux (Mission à Haut-Brion) to be better than the print version?

    N/A


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, the writing and narration was compelling. It dragged a bit in places but the characters were fascinating and the detail helped bring the book to life. I could picture myself in the places spoken about.


    What does Simon Prebble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A laid back style of reading that is enjoyable to listen to on cool Autumn days.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    France. Mystery. Wine.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, I look forward to reading / listening to the rest of the series.

    "NOT WHAT I THOUGHT"

    Absolutely not what I thought this book would be like. To me it was as if I was taking a lesson on how to pronounce French names, cities or villages. Also similar to a course on different wines. I thought the mystery was lost in the muddle or I just didn't care anymore. If you are not a total wine aficionado then skip this book. I will not be returning to this series. The narrator is excellent and I have heard him many times. Without this narrator I would not have gotten past chapter one.
