Friends and Foes – A Read Wine Bookstore Cozy Mystery Book 1

There’s a fine line between wine and crime…

Aspiring business owner Trixie Pristine is ready to make all of her dreams come true.  She’s fulfilling every girl’s fantasy by surrounding herself in coffee, wine, treats, and books.  What more could she want?  Teaming up with her closest friends, Cora Taylor and Sally Greeves, the three women are about to embark upon an opportunity of a lifetime, opening the quaint bookstore, Read Wine.

But suddenly, this new endeavor isn’t all that Trixie hoped it would be.  As strange things begin to happen, the women realize someone is out to sabotage their new business venture.  Refusing to put down the coffee or relinquish the wine, the three friends meddle in police affairs to get to the bottom of the mysterious events.

Grab your favorite bottle of red, curl up, and get ready to uncover how Read Wine all started.

What Readers are Saying

This is the first book in this series and I’m already loving the series. Entertaining story line that keeps your interest, fun characters and an entertaining read.


This is the first book in the new Read Wine cozy mystery series and is filled with lots of humor, mystery, madcap adventure, and a cast of wonderful characters.


I think Friends and Foes by Laina Turner is great. But, I just wanted more, so I guess now I will have to read the rest of the series. … I recommend this to all you wine-loving cozy mystery lovers out there.

I found it to be totally enjoyable, something that I had not experienced with a book in awhile.
