Helpful Hints


The second book in the delightful Verlaque and Bonnet mystery series is another page-turning whodunit, this time in set in a small community of theology students and professors at Aix-en-Provence's university.

When the director of the theology department at the university in Aix is found dead, Judge Verlaque is dumbfounded. Professor Moutte was about to announce the recipient of both a fellowship, and his position as Director—which includes the coveted apartment in a 17th century mansion. The prospective recipients and others close to Moutte make up a long list of suspects, but Verlaque isn’t convinced any of the eager students or desperate teachers are capable of murder, and he must dig deeper. With Marine’s help—and that of her plucky mother—Verlaque uncovers a world that proves more complicated than university politics.

Nice little mystery
September 29th, 2015
Traditional type of mystery set in Aix. Characters are good and lots of detail on Aix and the surrounding countryside. Not a challenging read.

The French do it better

This is the ultimate "cozy mystery" -- as much time and detail is spent on lunch as it is anything else. Utterly delightful, it is part of a series that is the epitome of delicious French Frenchness.
