Praise for M. L. Longworth’s Provençal Mystery series
“The Verlaque and Bonnet mysteries . . . plunge you into a languid world of epicurean pleasures and good living.” —Eleanor Beardsley, NPR
“Beguiling . . . Longworth evokes the pleasures of France in delicious detail—great wine, delicious meals, and fine company.” —Publishers Weekly
“Longworth’s novels . . . are mysteries for foodies, with the plot providing a table upon which the enchanting meals and accompanying wines are served.” —Booklist
Praise for Death at the Chateau Bremont
“This first novel in a projected series has charm, wit, and Aix-en-Provence all going for it. Longworth’s voice is like a rich vintage of sparkling Dorothy Sayers and grounded Donna Leon . . . Longworth has lived in Aix since 1997, and her knowledge of the region is apparent on every page. Bon appétit.” —Booklist
“A promising debut for Longworth, who shows there’s more to France than Paris and more to mystery than Maigret.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Mystery and romance served up with a hearty dose of French cuisine. I relished every word. Longworth does for Aix-en-Provence what Frances Mayes does for Tuscany: You want to be there—NOW!” —Barbara Fairchild, former editor in chief, Bon Appétit
“Death at the Château Bremont is replete with romance, mystery, and a rich atmosphere that makes the south of France spring off the page in a manner reminiscent of Donna Leon’s Venice. A wonderful start to a series sure to gain a legion of fans.” —Tasha Alexander, author of the Lady Emily mysteries
“Longworth has a good eye and a sharp wit, and this introduction to Verlaque and Bonnet holds promise for a terrific series.” —The Globe and Mail
“Death at the Château Bremont offers charming French locales, vivid characters and an intriguing who-done-it.” —Kevin R. Kosar, author of Whiskey: A Global History
“Here’s hoping the series lasts for years.” —RT Book Reviews
“Your readers will eat this one up.” —Library Journal

The plot is thin, lots of continuity errors, and spelling and grammar mistakes that suggest a total lack of knowledge about English. (she teaches it???)
Glad I didn't spring for the whole series.
It gives you the colors, smells and flavors of the south of France along with a cast of interesting characters.No police chases, no fist fights, no guns. But great descriptions of gourmet dinners.
So if you are looking to take the time to savour a place and a novel this is for you.
If you are looking for Jason Bourne - look elsewhere.
