She may be taking time away from her bookshop, but the experience proves difficult as Flora Steele joins beau Jack Carrington in France. Flora actually has a dual purpose in going to France. Jack’s mother Sybil is asking for his help. Meanwhile, Flora may finally get to the truth when it comes to answers she has been looking for regarding the death of her parents years previously.
When Sybil’s friend is murdered on a Paris street, Flora and Jack dive right into trying to solve the murder. As they are becoming rather seasoned amateur sleuths, finding answers is right up their alley.
Things prove difficult right from the very start. To begin with, Jack and his mother have not spoken in seven years yet when she asked for his help, he was expected to drop everything and be there for her. Their stained relationship is not the only challenge. Considering that his mother may be planning to marry an Italian count, Massimo Falconi, Flora and Jack wonder if Sybil was a possible target.
Danger is not too far from Flora and Jack in this seventh book in a delightful cozy mystery series by Merryn Allingham. It was nice to see the pair doing what they do best, albeit in a very different setting. When you factor in all of the elements of this story - the murder, investigation and relationships, including the strong bond shared between Flora and Jack, this book was a quick and enjoyable read.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this book for review. This is my honest opinion.
