The Curse of La Fontaine by M. L. Longworth

(*Amazon Affiliate link)

Summary:  Set in Aix-en-Provence, France, newlyweds Verlaque and Bonnet are drawn into investigating when a new restaurant in the neighborhood tries to expand and runs into a historical mystery.

First Sentence:

Antoine Verlaque liked die Corallini so much he almost regretted that his wedding was going to be so small.

Discussion:

M. L. Longworth continues on with a discussion of the history and architecture of the church.

I picked this up as an impulse at the library. It is part of a series. The French setting was what drew me to it, and it seems like that is going to be a big part of the book.

Have you ever picked up a book to transport yourself to another place?

Do you have a favorite book that immerses you in a novel setting?

    Slow-paced might not be something that would attract me to a book. I hope you are enjoying it. This week I have A Merciful Secret by Kendra Elliot – one from my review stack. Happy reading!

  4. This sounds like a good mystery and sometimes a slow pace is best – especially with books set in France (a setting I always enjoy reading about). I do like books to transport me elsewhere – no specific area in mind – here’s my Friday meme

  5. I like the setting and will have to take a closer look at this book.

  6. I definitely like books that take me to another place and restaurants in France would definitely count. Hopefully it doesn’t remain too slow-paced!

  7. I think the setting is one of the reasons I enjoyed “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon so much. I’m a sucker for any book that transports me to Ireland or Scotland. It wasn’t long before the voice in my head was talking with a Scottish accent. LOL
