What could be better for a writer's retreat than to rent a neighboring villa in the French Riviera next to her friends Martine ad and her husband Jean? However, Samantha soon learns that with the invitation comes a challenge as her friends ask her to help them unravel a dreadful mystery--one that involves the disappearance of pets in the neighborhood who've been buried in the garden of Sam rented villa.
Soon Sam's American lady friends arrive to share in Sam's bounty and the excitement of the French Riviera experience. All of these American friends have been part of her previous Samantha Jamison Mysteries and they are as excited about being in France as they are about the prospects of a new "caper."
There's more, of course, the American man she thought she'd left behind shows up just when she's warming up to a handsome Frenchman. And the neighbors, in spite of the loss of their own beloved pets, aren't exactly warming to the nosy American. Of course, nothing is as it seems, and Sam's investigations soon uncover hateful rumors of adultery, reputations ruined, and eventually murder.
Naturally, Samantha helps bring all these separate stories together, finding the clues that solve the mystery and it was perfectly done.
I really loved the descriptions of this part of the word--the author did a terrific job of giving us readers a traveling guide on the area, the views of the sea from the hillside homes where all the aforementioned secrets were hidden behind high walls.
I also enjoyed this author's unique and very original style, especially when her protagonist talks turns around and talks to the reader. I thought the author's clever chapter headings, i.

I could have continued reading this mystery for days enjoying Ms. Edelheit's vivid description of the French Riviera...sad to have finished 86 Avenue du Goulet! This thriller was nothing short of what we do for our friends....never estimate a vacation! Immediately, when Samantha was intrigued by so many unanswered questions from Martine, she just had to put her sleuthing skills to work....Brief and to the point chapters just invite you to read further and further....just a little more...waiting for the friendly Samantha Jamison entourage to make their appearance.....and they did with a French flair!!
But bones....human or animal....who was The Cat Lady?....who owned the van? Who really was Luc ?? With Martha and her colorful personality, Clay and his persistency, Sam was determined to meet her neighbors in the surrounding mountainside with their mysterious draw....Curat and Villa Palmarose had their secrets but she would not rest until they unfolded to help solve this mystery... Knowing how Ms. Edelheit surprises her readers with her "WOW" endings, (and she speaks to us often), I kept searching for clues....and came up "clueless". How could this be.... And could the mystery of what Sam is feeling for Clay beginning to unfold just as she begins to feel her independence by going to Europe alone???? Could this relationship evolve into something very real for Samantha? Could there be an analogy of the luxury that the Riviera holds to the sadness within it's grand homes?????? Isn't that what life is always telling us??? Don't judge a book by it's cover.....look inside this one for it is a will LOVE the ending... Where are we going next...packing soon? C'est bon...oui!!!!! Thanks so much for sharing your writing talents with all of us!!!!

Totally implausible, from start to finish. Loose threads, amazing (or should I say unbelievable?) coincidences, exaggerated characters... Sam dithers through the chapters, asking herself endless questions, "Who was the...?", "How did he..?", "why would she...?" This is presumably to build up suspense, but the only thing i got was a headache, as she never answers her own inquiries, but barrels on to the next improbable situation. The star I gave this book was really for myself, for finishing it.

86 avenue du goulet was just what i expected. i enjoyed it as much as peggy edelheit's previous two books. it kept me guessing all the way. and even when i thought i was figuring it all out - there she went again in a different direction. it ended full of surprises. i was able to picture all the characters and the places they went to. i was right there with them. the dialog went so smoothly. where next? can't wait.

Format: Paperback
Another adventure with Samantha Jamison and her endearing entourage, uncovering mysteries cross the Atlantic in the beautiful country of France. This 3rd novel by Peggy Edelheit is like the first 2, hard to put down! Samantha and friends are all a hoot as they vacation and solve murder mysteries, all in the same breathe. Would love to cast these characters when the Samantha sagas become movies in the near future. Peggy Edelheit has an amazing vivid imagination as she keeps the reader on the edge of their seat till the final page. I cannot wait till novel #4 is in print for they keep getting more interesting and exciting as you come to know the array of characters as your personal friends.
