About the book
And others are saying
And I thought
I enjoyed backtracking to book 1 in this series. And I loved it
but I couldn't help wishing for a little more.
I loved the story and plot. I loved the characters.
I just wanted the story about how Mimi got to where she is and a little more back story on the Mimi-Bryan relationship or story.
With all the descriptions of Bryan I just missed getting to know him before he is clobbered over the head and left for dead in a rather gruesome (not blooded at all) way. Left with gems and an E'clair in his mouth is just a little sick. What's up with this villain? Hmm. This is surely a good 'ole mystery.
As the story progresses Mimi puts off Tyson the detective handling the case. But they are long time friends so he gives her a little lee-way. Plus he is totally interested in Mimi's bestie and
employee Jo so he doesn't chastise Mimi too much when she starts snooping.
And who wouldn't when their benefactor is murdered. But opp's
her cell phone is missing and when it's found the last text is to
poor Bryan. For a bit Mimi is a prime suspect but Raymond the
gardener saves the day or this case Mimi when he mentions he
saw her about the time that Bryan met his demise. Mimi was doing what she does alot of pacing and talking to herself.
The talking to herself helps her work out the mystery and sometimes daily operations of the Bistro.
The French Bistro Mysteries is a great series.
Even though I wanted a little more back story I can only hope that maybe in future installments we're given a little more. That says a lot because the author does a great job of introducing the characters making you feel like your apart of what is going on.
I can only wonder what happens in book 3. I've already read book 2 where Mimi's Chef is the prime suspect when her poor sister is murdered. So hmm. Will Jo her bestie be the next suspect. Or maybe Raymond the gardener. Maybe even Irene the Chocolate Coffee Shop owner who tends to gather in a lot of gossip. Or maybe just some random new character.
Who knows. I can't wait!
If you like a good Cozy mystery. And if you enjoy food you'll love the French Bistro Series. You'll enjoy the addition of the
recipes at the end.
I received a complimentary copy.
