About the book (provided by Great Escapes Tours)
And others are saying
And I thought
A very fun read. I enjoyed everything about this book.
The storyline/plot was interesting and kept me turning the pages while trying to figure out Who Dun It?
Daryl does a great job of leaving little tid bits and leading the reader on a ride while trying to figure it out.
There are some subtle clues early on that kind of get swept away causing the reader and the characters to look for answers elsewhere.
This book and series has some delightful characters.
I loved Mimi's character. I loved her name Mimi Rousseau so very french sounding. Mimi is one talented business woman owning the Bistro Cafe and the Maison Rousseau. Such charming places that almost come to life. I wanted to visit! MiMi spends
alot of time talking to herself and going over the clues and working things out in her head until finally she puts everything together
and figures out who really killed poor Renee. Everyone including this reader is a bit surprised at the out come and who the villain is.
As the story progressed there was no shortage of suspects.
But each are exonerated in due time as their alibi's are covered.
There really are alot of characters running around. But it was
difficult to keep track of what was going on.
If I was to choose a favorite among them it might be MiMi's mother. She was delightful and charming at ready and willing to lend a hand whether it was watching over Camille in the early hours after she discovers her sisters body. Or by bringing lots of diners to the Maison Rousseau for a dinner party.
As Souffle of Suspicion is part of the French Bistro Mystery
series there is lot of talk about food. There are some great sounding recipes at the end of the book.
Souffle of Suspicion is book 2 in the series and is written as a
stand alone. If you pic it up you'll enjoy it and quite possibly have a hard time putting it down. I did. This was a fun and fast 5 star read for me. I am looking forward to reading more in this series.
I received a complimentary copy.
My review will appear on retail sites, NetGalley and Good Reads.
