Having already established Fiona Mason as a formidable read in the first of the “Blood…” series, she wastes no time in throwing us into the next superb mystery. I really liked book 1, but I preferred this one as I found that she really upped her game.

This time she has to work with a man who she essentially doesn’t like to get to the bottom of a stabbing on her latest tour. That’s no mean feat considering the massive cast list on display here.

There’s no doubt that Miss Cranswick can weave a murder mystery. What she also does though is engage you with so many characters, with so many balls in the air, that another writer might not be able to pull it off. She also seems well travelled because each of her locations is fabulously detailed. In fact, so engaging is Fiona Mason that I did wonder if the author herself had been a little bit of an amateur sleuth.
This was another surprising and enjoyable read and I’ll certainly be returning to the Fiona Mason collection a little later.

I’ve just finished reading this book and I’m amazed at how quickly I galloped through the last few chapters. The story begins at the start of a coach tour with a group of seemingly ordinary characters but can such a thing as an ordinary character ever exist? Judith Cranswick ably demonstrates each traveller’s unique personality allowing the reader to build an intimate knowledge of every individual within the group, as the story gently unfolds and gradually becomes compelling reading. Who did what? When? Where? There were so many possibilities but it was impossible to be sure of the outcome.
Throughout, there is carefully researched information on the areas visited by the tour group which also makes for some very interesting reading. If that weren’t enough, the writer also continues the extraordinary relationship emerging between Fiona, the group tour guide and the charming Peter Montgomery-Jones, who became acquainted in “Murder in the Bulb Fields.”
For those who like a good read, I have no hesitation in recommending this book.

There is no doubting that Judith Cranswick can tell a good tale, and Blood in the Wine is no exception. I have read a lot of the Fiona Mason books, and they never fail to draw me in to engage with the characters and the storyline. Mason is sort of an Amateur Miss Marple type of character who is a tour guide.
The locations of the plot are as well prepared as the plot itself, and the writer looks that either she is a good researcher or has lived there herself. It’s funny how we all get an idea of what a character should look like, and to me, Fiona Mason for some reason reminds me of a young Greer Garson. As she was in Mrs. Minerva.
The trip this time is through the old World War One Battlefield in France, and the ‘whodunit’ is a finely balanced construction that I didn’t guess. Great book!

Blood in the Wine continues the adventures of Fiona Mason, a very British tourist guide with a flair for amateur detection and a friend in the British intelligence Service, as she guides another group of British tourists through Continental Europe. This time the bus travels through the famous World War I battlefield of Ypres in Flanders and Germany’s Rhine Valley. I was reminded, quite pleasantly, of a visit taken several years ago to Frankfurt and a long train ride north through the Rhine Valley drinking far too much of the local Rieslings. The whodunit of this murder mystery is nicely assembled, the characters are well drawn, and the tour is well constructed as we visit fascinating old places in small-town Rhineland. Recommended to mystery fans and armchair travelers alike.

Yet another great murder mystery from Judith Cranswick. Well developed characters to which we can all relate !

Clever use of the tour itinerary helping to set the scenes. The descriptions of the parts of the romantic Rhineland visited in the tour are very detailed and would encourage a visit to the area if you’ve not been.

Typically the plot thickens as the story unfolds keeping you guessing.... A great yet gentle read

I have read other novels by Judith Cranswick and this is the second in the “Fiona” series

Once again, we meet up with Fiona Mason, friendly driver Winston and mysterious security professional Peter Montgomery-Jones. The tour details are as well-researched as in Judith's other books (which I seem to have read in the wrong order) and there are plenty of red herrings. I was convinced I'd spotted the baddie from early on - but I was wrong; the misdirection was very well handled. Another enthralling read.

I just finished reading the Fiona Mason mystery 'Blood in the Wine' which was excellent summer holiday reading material. It definitely reminded me of a summer in my late teens when I read every Agatha Christie that I could lay my hands on as well as my year spent in that very region of Germany as part of my degree course.
