  • A Noel Killin

    It was ok. I read it all but got confused over the minof characters and the extraneous information. Loved the description and history of th various districts of Aix.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Second course murder

    For a Francophile from down under, l have absolutely enjoyed each of the eight books that make up M L Longworth's Provencal Mystery series. Her latest book, “A Noël Killing,” was no different....I couldn't put it down and read it in one day, thoroughly enjoying it. About two months later l reread it to see if there were any details l had missed the first time around. It was just as enjoyable during the second reading. Set in Aix-en-Provence in the south of France, Longworth manages to capture the beauty of the lovely city centre as well as the surrounding scenery and towns. Her descriptions of the scrumptious culinary delights enjoyed by the key protagonists in the story often whet my appetite. While everyone is enjoying an array of international cuisines for dinner following the Christmas carol service at the beautiful Cathedral Saint Sauveur, one of the dinner guests is poisoned. With Antoine Verlaque, the examining magistrate and his wife Marine on hand, the search for the murderer is on. Antoine and his friend Bruno Paulik, the police commissioner, then proceed to delve into the case, encountering several unexpected curves along the way. M L Longworth’s book was a great source of escapism from the current concerns of the world, especially as we were in stage 4 lockdown in Melbourne due to COVID-19. It took me back to a beautiful part of the world l visited five years ago which is not a physical possibility at present or in the foreseeable future. If you enjoy a well written murder mystery plus have a love of France, this book is definitely worth reading. It easily stands as a read alone book, but is even better if you have read the previous books in the series. I eagerly await M L Longworth’s next book in the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
