This giveaway is sponsored by Michael Joseph

Secrets ripen and fester over a long sweltering summer in France...

The grape harvest at the Cambon family's magnificent vineyard is normally a cause for celebration. But when an accident destroys the crop, Clarisse Cambon knows exactly who to blame - her daughter-in-law, Jane.

It's the latest incident in a decades-long feud, the origin of which both women have concealed from Luc - he struggles to keep his wife and mother on speaking terms.

But when tragedy strikes and Jane is forced to take charge of the ailing vineyard, she uncovers proof that Luc has been keeping secrets of his own. Worse still, Clarisse is the only one who knows the truth...

This atmospheric tale of family secrets and forbidden passions set in the glorious South of France is best enjoyed with a glass of wine.
