The mysterious deaths of a winery matriarch's son and a rival vintner lead Jessica into a world of greed and betrayal.
In Sonoma for the funeral of her friend Anna's murdered son Paul, Jessica sees the arrival of Paul's widow Michelle, the pressure being put on Anna by Lars Anderson to sell the vineyard, and odd hints of something not right. Then Lars turns up dead.
Jessica Fletcher is in Sonoma Valley to attend the funeral of Paul Grimaldi, son of her good friend Anna Grimaldi. Paul had been shot in the parking lot of a jewelry store and his fiancée Michelle, who the family had never met, has since vanished. The Grimaldi family own a winery but it's not in good financial shape with a second mortgage coming due in a few weeks. The winery is coveted by another vintner, Lars Anderson, but the Grimaldi children, Pete and Alicia, want to keep it if they can. When Michelle arrives unexpectedly, Anna's dreams have been answered but she tells them she and Paul were married an hour before he was killed. When Lars Anderson is found murdered in the Grimaldi's wine cellar, everyone is a suspect. When the Sheriff arrests Pete Grimaldi for the crime, Jessica is convinced there has to be a connection between the two murderers.
Widow Anna Grimaldi's son, Paul, is shot in San Francisco, apparently by a robber. Jessica attends the funeral, just before grape harvest in the Sonoma estate, as does Paul's fiancée Michelle, who married him just in time without the family knowledge. Neighbor Lars Anderson, who wants to buy the Grimaldi winery, which is in financial trouble, is murdered. The only witness is Bolivar, the dog that crazy owner Felipe claims to be St. Francis' oracle. Corrupt Sheriff Serafio Zuniga arrests first Felipe, then Anna's adopted, non-estate-heir son Pete. Jessica works out the surprising link between both murders.
