Murder in Provence – “A Good Recipe “

October 7, 2015


Murder in Provence, A Maggie Newberry Mystery, by Susan Kiernan-Lewis

I read the first book in this series, Murder in the South of France, and to be honest when I started this, I wondered if I had read it before. A woman, married to a French vintner, discovers who murders the daughter of a friend, plus a few other people.

But there are some additional twists in this story. The narrator’s own marriage is in jeopardy and she has to decide whether she likes France or America more.

There are too many characters who all seem to be sleeping around, but I like the way food is a subtext. The turns in the plot keep the pages turnning and the ending proves satisfying.

I give the author credit for going into marriage, love, daughters, friends and different nationalities. Would I want more? After a satisfying meal, no one wants anything else (at least until the next one).
