A Soufflé of Suspicion: A French Bistro Mystery
by Daryl Wood Gerber

Warmth, humor, a few chills, a soupçon of intrigue, and plenty of charm make for a great read. A SOUFFLE OF SUSPICION is a delectable entrée in the French Bistro Mystery series.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

Delicious food, engaging characters, and a well-constructed plot join with the gorgeous setting to make this book a delightful read from start to finish.
~Reading is My SuperPower

A Soufflé of Suspicion, book #2 in the French bistro series, is delicious – and I don’t mean that as a pun. It is simply the essence of all that a cozy mystery should be.
~The Power of Words

I found A Souffle of Suspicion to be well-written and it has a nice steady pace. The author has a conversational writing style that is engaging.
~The Avid Reader

This author is an amazing storyteller. She sets the scene, nurtures her characters and gives them dynamic dialogue, all while wrapping them in a masterful mystery.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

A very fun read. I enjoyed everything about this book.
~My Reading Journeys

Mystery, suspense, laughter, and much much more.

The characters are what I like the most about this series. Mimi’s staff and friends are all there to provide support when she needs it, and after two books they are starting to feel like old friends to me as well.
~The Book’s the Thing

Filled with all sorts of relationships and motives, and so many activities going on all at once, this story believably goes in many directions. It has an energy humming through it.
~Laura’s Interests

I was again pleasantly surprised by the mystery in this book, there were so many twists and turns in the story and I had a hard time nailing down the murderer because there were so many different suspects. . . All-in-all, another smashing hit for Daryl Wood Gerber….keep them coming!
~The Montana Bookaholic

A Souffle of Suspicion was a charming and fun story that will definitely keep you guessing until the very last page.
~Moonlight Rendezvous

It was fun to be back in wine country with Mimi Rousseau and the great cast of characters in the French Bistro Mysteries. Author Daryl Wood Gerber has written them all in a way that makes me feel I personally know each one them.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews

Wonderful writing that flows so smoothly you will find yourself on the last page before you know wishing the next book was out already.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews

I love the locale of the Napa Valley wineries and all the picturesque little villages that comprise the famous California vineyards.
~Rosepoint Publishing

. . . this cozy series set in the Napa area has a lot going for it – food, wine, compelling characters, and even a few pets. And of course, solving the mystery of who is the killer.
~Storeybook Reviews

The French bistro theme is enjoyable to me. I think it would be a nice place to have a bite to eat.
~A. Holland Reads

This was a fast-paced read that kept my attention from the beginning . . . I enjoyed revisiting the town and characters of this well-written series . . .
~Melina’s Book Blog

This was a fun summer read. I’m enjoying the characters in this series quite a bit.

The buoyant mood at Bistro Rousseau deflates when Chef Camille’s sister, Renee, turns up dead in the chef’s kitchen, and Mimi Rousseau must tease the real killer out of a mélange of menacing characters.

Crush Week in Nouvelle Vie is a madhouse—in a good way. Tourists pour into town for the pressing of the Napa Valley’s world-renowned grapes and all the town’s businesses get a nice lift, including Bistro and Maison Rousseau. Mimi is raising the ante this year with a Sweet Treats Festival, a wonderland of croissants, cakes, tarts, and soufflés crafted with expert care by the area’s top talents.

Chef Camille’s sister Renee is managing the festival with a cast-iron fist, upsetting everyone, including her sister. Which is bad for Camille when Renee turns up dead in the chef’s kitchen. Mimi is still building her business, so her first course of action is to whip up answers and catch the unsavory perpetrator before Camille takes a dusting and gets burned.
