Murder in Marseille
Book 14 of the Maggie Newberry Mysteries
From bouillabaisse to betrayal…
…and the beautiful city that is home to both
When the dead body of one of Marseille’s most corrupt politicians is found stuffed in Maggie’s car trunk it creates a bubbling stew of deception, betrayal and revenge.
Is there a connection between the victim and Maggie? Her family? Or is this a message for Laurent as a result of his nefarious history of crime and misdeeds?
Even worse, a devastating family secret that Laurent and Maggie have spent the last twelve years hiding is shockingly revealed to the world, putting everything they have—as well as everyone they love—in immediate jeopardy.
This heart-stopping thrill-ride takes you through the menacing back streets of Marseille in Maggie’s determined trajectory toward the truth—and the truly evil—behind it.
(Bonus: Laurent’s classic bouillabaisse recipe is at the end of the book!)
This book is a clean read: no graphic violence, sex or strong language
Genre: light culinary cozy mystery, women amateur sleuth, cozy animal (dog)
Maggie and Laurent are interesting people.
France is a nice place to get to know a little about. Add murder and detective work by a nosy woman and it really makes a story hard to put down.
Not her better effort
I could not continue reading about adolescent behaviors!!
As good as ever
I truly love reading these Maggie books. Quick reads, they catch and hold my attention. I highly recommend the entire series.
