A heartfelt plea to look into the death of a world-famous vintner goes hand in hand with the opportunity to attend an exclusive gourmet event in British Columbia’s stunning wine country. How can overindulgent foodie and criminologist Cait Morgan resist?
Sure that the award-winning owner of a family-run vineyard was murdered, Cait shares her findings with Bud Anderson, a retired homicide cop. But he is convinced that the woman took her own life, whatever her grief-stricken sister might say. That is, until death strikes once again, in the neat rows of grapevines that clamber up the banks of magnificent Lake Okanagan.
Uncovering obsessions that might have fuelled murderous thoughts among the victim’s wacky neighbours is a start, but as Cait unravels the clues, she realizes that more lives are at stake. Can she think, and act, quickly enough to thwart the killer?
The Corpse with the Golden Nose is the second book in the Cait Morgan Mysteries, a classic whodunit series featuring the eccentric Professor Cait Morgan.

Love mysteries all kinds.Twitter follower@rhondareads
Hi Rhonda – thanks for checking in here, and for leaving a comment. So kind of you. It’s always fun to “meet” someone who loves mysteries. I am an absolute addict myself, which is, I believe, why I write them. Happy Mystery Reading! Cathy
Our daughter’s first school teacher was from Wales — it was at an International School at AFCENT in Bransum The Netherlands.
I like to read across most genres. But I do have to admit mysteries are really my favorite. I’ve just recently heard the term ‘cozies’, so maybe part of my enjoyment comes from these. BUT really, anything with mystery / suspense can usually pique my interest.
I will certainly be looking for the Cait Morgan mysteries.
Hi Donna D – how interesting that your daughter would have had a teacher from Wales – in the Netherlands. I suppose we Welsh do get about a bit!
PLEASE don’t feel you have to “confess” to liking mysteries the most…you’re talking to an addict, who got hooked at an early age. I blame my mother, and all those Agatha Christie books she had!
Whatever you’re reading, enjoy it – especially if it’s one of mine! 🙂 Cathy
Sounds like a great series! Thanks for the review and a chance to win a free copy. I’m ordering the first one in series.
Hi Linda – I’m glad you like the sound of the series. I really enjoy writing Cait…I hope you enjoy your time with her in the south of France (THE CORPSE WITH THE SILVER TONGUE) so much that you choose to join her in BC’s beautiful wine country. Cathy
I usually read mysteries all kinds bur mostly cozies.
Glad to know you enjoy mysteries, Linda. Me too, though I can’t read right now because I’m writing!
Mysteries are the best reads. As well as the story, one has a puzzle to try to work out before the answer is revealed.
Exactly my way of looking at it, Irene. I like to read about people, places, food, drink, history, art, architecture, cultures…lots of things. In a mystery you can tackle all these subjects, and wrap it all in a puzzle. HEAVEN!
My love of mysteries started with Nancy Drew at a young age. Now over 40 years later, I’ve widen the range more, but still get a lot out of reading mysteries. Who knows, it may even be research. Since I’m not a good traveler, I love reading about other countries, most of which I havent seen. Thanks for the great giveaway.
Hello Nancy – YAY another Nancy Drew fan! You display excellent taste! I, too, like to travel with mysteries…so many are set in parts of the world I haven;t been to yet – but now feel as though I have. Some are set in places I have visited, so it’s always nice to visit again, and revitalise memories.
would love to read this mystery, mysteries are my fav
Hi Sharon – I’m glad you like the sound of it, and, as a mystery lover it might well be your cup of tea…if your cup of tea is a glass of wine, that is!
i love mysteries and trying to figure out who the culprit is
Hi Angela – you’re like me…I try really hard to keep track of all the clues and work out whodunit. Of course, when I’m writing I try to make the tracking and guessing fun too. Cathy
It’s romance for me, i have a great guy but lacks in the romance department.
Hi Danielle – I think it’s just great that there is so much out there that we can all usually find something that appeals.
It’s hard to pick one favorite genre, since I have several. I seem to alternate between mysteries (mostly cozies and British mysteries whether cozy or not; I also enjoy paranormal mysteries), fantasy (adult and YA), and historical romance, but lately I’ve also discovered paranormal romance and romantic suspense.
Still, mystery was one of my first loves (Nancy Drew, of course! And the Hardy Boys, Judy Bolton, Trixie Belden, and even Encyclopedia Brown. I can’t see ever abandoning the genre!
Glad to know you still love mysteries, Lark. We could have shared books when we were little, by the sound of it! All those characters led such different lives to that which I experienced growing up in Wales. My greatest treat was to send an hour in the library choosing my next books.
>”We could have shared books when we were little, by the sound of it! “<
Indeed, and later on as well! Like you, I moved on to my mom's Ngaio Marsh, Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, and Josephine Tey mysteries, as well as Mary Stewart's romantic suspense. Though I think I was a little older than you, more like 11 or 2, by the time I started most of those authors. Oh, and Conan Doyle, of course! Then on to Catherine Aird, Dick Francis, and many more.
Oh heck – it’s like we’re the same person!
Sci Fi of course.
need some romance is my life … sadly
My paternal grandfather was Welsh. We are the Parry’s.
Good for you for having some Welsh blood! Maybe, if you read my books, you’ll understand why Cait is the way she is 😉
Need a good read. The last book I read was a dud!
Such a shame when a book doesn’t satisfy! I really hope you enjoy mine if/when you read them! 😉
