I've often wondered if there is any editing done anymore. Authors can do better as can editors.
I usually enjoy murder mysteries, but unfortunately Murder in Provence fell flat for me. The pace in the beginning was slow and finally picked up halfway through the book where the story acknowledges movement to the murder committed in the prologue. It was hard to decipher the voices of the characters, and I confused Maggie and Marie often. The only character that really stuck out was Pijou, the jealous sister. I noticed some quirky uses of character perspectives and use of (dog's name) instead of using a dog's name. I think one more round of editing would polish the story and give it a bit more dimension.
I would recommend this book as a good, soft mystery that has a strong, albeit predictable ending.
I read the first book in this series, Murder in the South of France, and to be honest when I started this, I wondered if I had read it before. A woman, married to a French vintner, discovers who murders the daughter of a friend, plus a few other people.
But there are some additional twists in this story. The narrator's own marriage is in jeopardy and she has to decide whether she likes France or America more.
There are too many characters who all seem to be sleeping around, but I like the way food is a subtext. The turns in the plot keep the pages turnning and the ending proves satisfying.
I give the author credit for going into marriage, love, daughters, friends and different nationalities. Would I want more? After a satisfying meal, no one wants anything else (at least until the next one).

Liked the characters. I also liked that it was about more than the murders. It was about food and French cooking, relationships, friendships and even art.Published 1 day ago by Tiger Fan
