french themed - ooh-la-la
June 21 - August 31, 2011
I've been catching up on detective Poirot episodes and enjoying some mystery these days. Agatha Christie's Poirot character is Belgian but his dialogue is often sprinkled with French words. So, I'm including him in my Books&Brioche event.

Introducing a seductive new mystery series set in Provence-featuring chief magistrate Antoine Verlaque.
Set in charming and historic Aix-en-Provence, France, Death at the Château Bremont introduces readers to Antoine Verlaque, the handsome and seductive chief magistrate of Aix, and his on-again, off- again love interest, law professor Marine Bonnet.
When local nobleman Etienne de Bremont falls to his death from the family château, the town is abuzz with rumors. Verlaque suspects foul play and must turn to Marine for help when he discovers that she had been a close friend of the Bremonts.
This is a lively whodunit steeped in the rich, enticing, and romantic atmosphere of southern France.
