Love the characters and the recipies (even if they are fattening).
.Although I normally do not enjoy reading mystery novels, I do enjoy reading about the adventures of expats in France. Nancy Fairbanks writes about a couple from El Paso, Texas, a chemistry professor man and food critic wife. They visit Leon and Avignon, France and try to avoid being killed. It was a fun read!
It was pretty good. Sadder than the others though. Jason and Carolyn have strain in this one, but I still enjoyed it.
Good mystery set in southern France. Relationships were a bit confusing, but I have not read the previous books. I'll add the others in the series to my TBR pile.
