Deadly Eclair introduces us to restaurateur and inn owner Mimi Rousseau, finally pursuing her dreams after the death of her husband, mostly thanks to an Angel Investor, Bryan Baker. When he's killed - and Mimi's debt is forgiven in his will - she must prove her innocence and get justice for her dear friend and mentor.
Filled with delightful characters, twisting turns, and scrumptious recipes, Deadly Eclair leaves the reader satisfied, like a delectable meal. I can't wait for more stories from Mimi and friends!

Mimi Rousseau is returning home in hopes of achieving her dream...opening her own little bistro. She isn’t quite sure that is in the cards for her until her best friend finds her an investor, Bryan Baker. She is finally on the right path when Bryan is murdered. All clues point to her. She will have to work hard to clear her name if she wants her freedom and before all her dreams go up in smoke.
The murder mystery itself has a cast of suspects, and the author kept me guessing throughout the entire book. The heroine, Mimi, was a great character. I admired her independence and intelligence. She needed both of those things to get her out of the predicament she was in. I am also looking forward to seeing where her potential romance with Nash will lead her.
This was an enjoyable, witty, cozy mystery. The fabulous scenery of the beautiful Napa Valley was an added bonus. Throw in a great cast of secondary characters and an AMAZING collection of recipes, and you have yourself a wonderful beginning to what promises to be a wonderful series!!!
