Biddy Jenkinson, a gardener by profession, lives on a hill in Ireland with a dog, a cat and a flock of geese. She has a particular interest in the bumble bee and in the preservation of its habitat.
While prepared to encounter the gloomier aspects of reality in other areas, Jenkinson avoids novels that promise to horrify, terrify or otherwise discompose the reader. She will count this story a success if the reader laughs, at least once. This does not mean that she condones murder.
Full-bodied Wine is Jenkinson's first detective novel.
