About The Book

Return to the warmth of Provence for the next delightful Penelope Kite mystery…
When Penelope Kite attends the opening of an art exhibition on the arm of the gorgeous Mayor of St Merlot, Laurent Millias, it seems she is finally settling into life in Provence. But beneath the glamour, trouble is lurking. Shockwaves ripple when British expat artist, Roland Doncaster, collapses after choking on an olive.
A tragic accident? Or was he poisoned? Penelope is thrust once again into the middle of a murder investigation, but when she casts suspicion on one of the Mayor’s friends, she finds herself out in the cold.
As winter draws in, Penelope must rely on the friendship of her local music group – including the dashing art dealer, Gilles de Bourdan – the support of the effervescent Frankie, and her own sleuthing instincts to untangle this mystery…

My Thoughts

This is a book to enjoy and let transport you to the French Provence, with murder included, but this always makes the trip more interesting! Unless you are the victim or the killer of course… 😉
This is a quite interesting case, Penelope Kite and her group of friends will be involved in a mysterious death of a famous painter; with so many enemies that it will be difficult to discover what has happened. But of course Penelope can not stay away of a good mystery and will start asking questions because when your friends are investigated you have to do anything to save them, am I right?
I have to admit that I love a good murder, but if the story happens in a small village full of interesting characters, then the read is a delight! I always love when the story is full of possible killers and you can make your guesses and possible motives on your head thanks to the hints that are dropped on the book. Who doesn’t love a good riddle?
This is the second book of the Penelope Kite series, but you can follow the characters and the story perfectly; but the friendship and glamour of the story will make you want to read the first book too!
If you are looking for a book to enjoy and make you travel around to France, this is your perfect murder, ready?
