"Nell has woven her tale in such a warm and comfortable manner that puts you in the very heart of all of it. I felt like I was sitting one stool down from them at the restaurant and so much a part of the whole scene. That is the kind of writing that the greatest of series authors are born of." -- Debbie Petersen
"I LOVED this book! So much so that I am writing my very FIRST book REVIEW ever." -- Cliff B.
"What a feast for the senses! In addition to being a terrific mystery--I didn't see the end coming even though, in retrospect, the clues were there--this book gave me a free vacation. I felt as if I could see, smell, TASTE this French village." -- Amazon customer

Not so with Ms. Goddin, I was lulled into the story as a child is lulled into a fairy tale read by a talented parent. I knew there was a dangerous person somewhere in the vicinity, but I wasn't taken on any thrill seeking roller coaster rides, I was never afraid anymore than the child is of the Big Bad Wolf, and most deliciously of all, I simultaneously discovered who the villain was along with our heroine, Molly. That's smooth in my book, along with taking quite a bit of talent to pull it off.
Two things that I was not crazy about...I am always irritated when I need a French dictionary handy to translate the little sayings that are dropped between the characters, there are a few times, and I mean a few, that the author bothers to translate something for us. When I read a story I want to know every word that is being said, and I expect the author to provide a translation if they are dropping in things using a different language. If some believe it is okay to just skip them, then I have to ask if they shouldn't have been edited out to begin with. I speak two languages, but one of them is not French. Please Ms. Goddin, if you are going to use even the smallest phrase in another language, no matter how small, translate it for us. You write your stories word by word, we want to be able to read them that way.
Second, while this book is not a cliffhanger per say, the ending left me feeling that there was so much more I wanted to know of Molly's life, and future in this village. It left me unfulfilled and hungry for more; well, I guess that's really not a bad thing after all is it. Just be prepared to still be hungry after you've finished.
As a nice change from most cozy mysteries, Molly is not a curious busybody. This is a very pleasant read, like a walk in through the country on a beautiful day.
