Book Description

TOTALLY REVISED, UPDATED AND RE-EDITED EDITION! Maggie Newberry is sheltered, privileged but also a whip-smart advertising copywriter who’s fast on her feet and a little stunned to realize that she’s 34 years old and still hasn’t found “the one.” When her long-missing sister ends up dead, Maggie flies to the south of France to find the little niece that no one in the family even knew existed. Along the way, she finds handsome Laurent Dernier, a sexy if nefarious Frenchman who it’s not clear is there to help or hinder Maggie’s search for the girl. Meanwhile, her sister’s murderer sets his sights on the little girl—and Maggie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful. March 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So many mistakes in the details. The mistakes are so glaring and so prevalent that I began to wonder if the author was an editor secretly conducting an experiment to prove that online publishing is a huge joke. So bad I couldn't put it down - Will the main character have blue eyes or green eyes? Will the streets still be crowded or suddenly maybe only a few lovers will be strolling along? Will her southern boss suddenly begin using British slang or French phrases? Anything is possible.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too many errors November 4, 2012
By eghall
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I grew up in Atlanta, Buckhead specifically, and spent many summers in France. I thought this would be a perfect book. However, the huge numbers of errors about Atlanta and France really spoiled it for me. And I wonder if anyone actually read this book before it was published....too many errors in the plot to count. I was very disappointed.

The people acted in such stupid ways it was unbelievable! When the story line is so stupid, it is hard to find a mystery other than why read this book!

1.0 out of 5 stars Zero stars January 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would give this zero stars if the format allowed it. Absolutely the WORST thing I've read in a long time--I'm sorry I wasted my time finishing it, but I kept thinking it MUST get better. It didn't, and for the following reasons: NO character development except that I'm pretty sure that the lead female character is an absolute idiot, NO insight into relationships, a "plot", such as it was, that made no sense whatsoever. Avoid this book and any further books in this series like the plague. You'll not get your money's worth even if you get if for free.

1.0 out of 5 stars Murder on the Cote d'Azur January 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No murder actually happens on the Cote d'Azur - very feeble main character and story line is ridiculous. The characters are very flat and big gaps in the story itself.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work for me October 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It isn't that there is anything obviously wrong with this book (other than the usual need for better copy editing), but it definitely didn't work for me. Too much head hopping for one thing. Very slow at times. Small things that felt out of character. The ending didn't settle well either, although I am challenged to explain why. Also I think the cops were presented as rather too incompetent to be believable. Finally, I found the title totally inappropriate for the contents.

2.0 out of 5 stars S. KIERNAN-LEWIS February 17, 2013
By Erna
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
NO, THIS BOOK WAS DEFINITELY NOT MY CUP OF TEA. I DIDN'T LIKE THE CHARACTERS, AND CHILD ABUSE IS NOT SOMETHING I LIKE TO READ ABOUT, FOR PERSONAL REASONS. BUT IT IS A GOOD THING WE ARE NOT ALL THE SAME OR LIKE THE SAME KINDS OF BOOKS, SO I AM SURE SOMEONE ELSE WILL ENJOY IT.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Enjoyed This February 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been following the author's blog (susan kiernan-lewis.wordpress.com) and now checked out the book. Beware, this could be an expensive read...you'll want to go to France based on the beginning. I loved her descriptions. Her style takes a little getting used to as she has sudden chapter changes, and I can say I did not guess the storyline or see the surprises. It was well done. I look forward to the next book. Worth the money and time to read. A trip to France...maybe not.
