    I truly enjoyed this book!

    I truly enjoyed this book. Every time I read one of Martin Walker’s books , I feel like I should visit this part of France and enjoy this culture and atmosphere. Of course I won’t forget Bruno et Isabelle, love them both ! Merci pour une belle lecture!

    Super homme!

    A day in the life of Bruno could leave you exhausted, but you'll be well-fed.

    Bravo

    I love Martin Walker and his characters, especially Bruno! Written for an intelligent reader with enough mystery to keep you engaged as you salivate your way through each chapter. He has taught me much about French cooking and cuisine and the art of simplicity.

    my favorite current French mystery series

    I am a big fan of mysteries set in France, and my favorite current French mystery series is Martin Walker’s Bruno series. I like pretty much everything about the series – the setting in the Dordogne, the food, the wine, Bruno’s community of St Denis, the mystery plots, and, of course, Bruno himself (although personally, I do wish he’d just get over Isabel). And I really look forward to each new title coming out. So it’s no surprise that I liked the eleventh title in the series, A Taste for Vengeance. A Taste for Vengeance has two main threads running through it – a missing person plot involving a “no-show” student at the cooking class of one of Bruno’s friends, and another plot revolving around a pregnant teenager who is a star player on the town’s rugby team. The two threads are very different, but I enjoyed both. Both made me think about the fact that even in a small village in a somewhat remote and seemingly bucolic area, real life intrudes. Overall, I liked the book a lot. And, as most of the books in this series do, it pulled me in, so that I read it over a single weekend, which is a big compliment. Please keep in mind that for me, 4 stars out of 5 is a really good ranking. I reserve 5 stars for a very few absolute favorite books, ones I am going to read and reread time-and-again, probably no more than one in twenty or thirty books. So 4 stars is my normal top limit, and means I really recommend the book.
