Publisher's Summary

When local nobleman Étienne de Bremont falls to his death from the family château, it sets the historic town of Aix-en-Provence abuzz with rumors. Antoine Verlaque, the charming chief magistrate of Aix, suspects foul play, and when he discovers Bremont had been a close friend of Marine Bonnet, his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Verlaque must turn to her for help.  

The once-idyllic town suddenly seems filled with people who could have benefited from Bremont's death - including his playboy brother, François, who's heavily in debt and mixed up with some unsavory characters. But just as Verlaque and Bonnet are narrowing down their list of suspects, another death occurs. And this time, there can be no doubt - it's murder.  

A lively mystery steeped in the enticing atmosphere of the South of France and seasoned with romance as rich as the French cuisine that inspires it, this first installment of M. L. Longworth's acclaimed Provençal Mystery series is as addictive and captivating as Provence itself.

Terrible narration

I bought this after enjoying the Murder in Provence series on Britbox that is based on these books. This might be a good book, but the narration is so terrible, I couldn't keep listening. Why not take the approach of the TV series, and simply have the narrator speak in her normal British accent? Her French pronunciation is appalling and grating.

Terrible narration

Very good story, but the narrator spoiled it through her harsh yelling when she would switch to a man’s voice. It hurt my ears. Why can’t the narrators read in a normal voice? The reader can interpret the differences on his or her own.
