"What really makes Longforth's writing special is her deep knowledge of French history, landscape, cuisine, and even contemporary cafes and restaurants. This is that rare atmospheric mystery that is street-wise and cafe-canny." - "Booklist" (starred review)

"Longworth's gentle procedural succeeds on several levels, whether it's for academic and literary allusions, police work, or armchair travel. With deftly shifting points of view, Longworth creates a beguiling read that will appeal to Louise Penny and Donna Leon fans." - "Library Journal"

Praise For "Death at the Chateau Bremont" .
"This first novel in a projected series has charm, wit, and Aix-en- Provence all going for it. Longworth's voice is like a rich vintage of sparkling Dorothy Sayers and grounded Donna Leon...Longworth has lived in Aix since 1997, and her knowledge of the region is apparent on every page. Bon appetit." - "Booklist
.
""A promising debut for Longworth, who shows there's more to France than Paris and more to mystery than Maigret." - "Kirkus" ."Mystery and romance served up with a hearty dose of French cuisine. I relished every word. Longworth does for Aix-en-Provence what Frances Mayes does for Tuscany: You want to be there-NOW!" - Babara Fairchild, former editor-in-chief, "Bon Appetit" magazine .""Death at Chateau Bremont" is replete with romance, mystery, and a rich atmosphere that makes the south of France spring off the page in a manner reminiscent of Donna Leon's Venice. A wonderful start to a series sure to gain a legion of fans." - Tasha Alexander, author of the Lady Emily mysteries ."Longworth has a good eye and a sharp wit, and this introduction to Verlaque and Bonnet holds promise for a terrific series." - "Globe and Mail" .""Death at Chateau Bremont" offers charming French locales, vivid characters and an intriguing who-done-it." - Kevin R. Kosar, author of "Whiskey: A Global History" ."Here's hoping the series lasts for years." - "RT BookReviews" ."Your readers will eat this one up." - "Library Journal"

When Dr. Georges Moutte is found mudrered, investigator Antoine Verlaque is stumped. Certainly the director of theology at the Universite d Aix had his enemies. Moutte was just about to name the recipient of an elite fellowship as well as his own successor a highly coveted position when his lips were sealed permanently. But Verlaque isn t convinced that anyone in the tiny community of academics is capable of murder. Aided by his on-again, off-again girlfriend, law professor Marine Bonnet, Berlaque must turn Provence upside down, uncovering a world far more complicated than university politics, to find the killer before it s too late. A page-turning mysterythat transports you to the south of France with its lush portrait of a charming seaside town, this continuation of the Verlaque and Bonnet series captivates.
