A Deadly Éclair: A French Bistro Mystery
by Daryl Wood Gerber

A DEADLY ÉCLAIR got better and better with every word. With a magnificent plot, great characters, and fabulous setting, I didn’t stop turning pages until the story was done.

I have been looking forward to the book since I first saw the cover pop up on Facebook and it certainly exceeded my expectations. As a fan of the author’s Cheese Shop Mysteries and Cookbook Nook Mysteries, I knew the characters would be strong and the food descriptions would have my mouth watering and I was right.

This fresh new cozy had all the elements I love: an easy-to-relate-to amateur sleuth; a great setting; and a believable mystery. Ms. Gerber has another winner on her hands…and I can’t wait for the next French Bistro Mystery!

This author also has a way of keeping you guessing who committed the murder until the end of the book. She likes to drop little hints to make you think you know who it was but then gives you a nice little twist to let you know you were wrong.

I adored the story, told from the POV of Mimi. The gorgeous cover sets the right tone for a book set at a French bistro.
~Jane Reads

If it is possible to gain weight by reading a book then this might be the book that could make it happen! The restaurant is a French bistro and the food is inspired by the French so you know it has to be good. The descriptions had my mouth watering and imaging the dishes being served.

I’m already a fan of the Cheese Shop Mysteries and the Cookbook Nook Mysteries. And, if A Deadly Eclair is any indication, I’ll be getting my fangirl costume out for the French Bistro Mysteries as well!

It’s always been Mimi Rousseau’s dream to open her own bistro, but it seems beyond her grasp since she’s been chased back home to Nouvelle Vie in Napa Valley by her late husband’s tremendous debt. Until her best friend Jorianne James introduces her to entrepreneur Bryan Baker who invests in promising prospects. Now, working the bistro and inn until she’s able to pay it off and call it her own, Mimi is throwing the inn’s first wedding ever.

The wedding will be the talk of the town, as famous talk show host Angelica Edmonton, daughter of Bryan’s half-brother, Edison, has chosen the inn as her perfect venue. Anxious, Mimi is sure things are going to turn south, especially when Edison gets drunk and rowdy at the out-of-towners’ dinner, but by the evening, things begin to look up again. That is until six AM rolls around, and Bryan is found dead at the bistro with an éclair stuffed in his mouth. And the fingers point at Mimi, whose entire loan is forgiven in Bryan’s will.

Now it’s up to Mimi to clear her name and get to the bottom of things before the killer turns up the heat again in A Deadly Éclair, the scrumptious series debut by Agatha Award-winning author Daryl Wood Gerber.
