'Flambé in Armagnac' is the 7th book in the Winemaker Detective series by Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noel Balen. It seems to show no signs of slowing down and there is still a lot to learn about the world of French wine.
This time around, the story takes place in Gascony. A fire at one of the top distillers of Armagnac has occurred and Benjamin Cooker and his assistant Virgile are called in to estimate the value of the losses. Benjamin has friends in the region, which is good because the owner of the disillery is hostile. Along the way, Virgile meets a fellow rugby player and family secrets as well as a possible murder are uncovered.
These are quick reads, but I enjoy the series. One aspect is the wine education, one is the travel and food of the different regions of France, but the main one might be our two main characters. A quick enjoyable read. I only wish I'd had a glass of Armagnac to sip while I read it.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Le French Book and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
