Murder a la Carte?

At the end the plot gelled nicely, but it took sooo long to get there. The “French” accents were annoying because the varied from inaudible to weird having no resemblance to a French speaker at all. The characters were whiney, contrived, and very unsympathetic. The food sounded wonderful. The amount of alcohol consumed would have everyone terribly ill and nonfunctional. The setting was wonderful. Who can resist a vineyard in Provence? But the author made a mockery of winemaking. Harvesting grapes and having drinkable wine two weeks later is a real stretch of reality. This series is off my menu. This book was a waste of time.

Took me to France during Lockdown

Having actually already read this several years previously, it was delightful to listen to, and very descriptively carried me away to Provence, to all deliciousness seasoned with a mystery, scandal and charm, an intelligent and interesting visit away from my own four walls during the lockdown.
