“Rides on horseback through the French countryside of the Dordogne. Elaborately prepared and explained meals. Wines. And, oh yes, a mystery blended into this heady mix. While most readers think the British have a line on cozies, Walker makes a great case for the French version…Much to admire and sigh over in this appetizing mystery.”
“Endearing…Existing fans and newcomers alike will savor Walker’s ability to smoothly fold suspense into his Périgordian soufflé.”
“As usual…[a] celebration of la belle France
. But this time, Bruno, who’s required to act as enforcer, sleuth, diplomat, comforter, impersonator, hostage negotiator and rescuer, reveals unexpected resources.”
