Murder in the Rue Dumas" is more on the cozy end of the genre, but what a delightful place it holds. Longworth's gentle procedural succeeds on several levels, whether it's for academic and literary allusions, police work, or armchair travel. The differences in the Catholic Church in France were also explored (or exploded) as part of the plot.

Tijdens een feestje bij de bejaarde professor thuis kondigde hij tot ieders verrassing aan dat hij zijn geplande pensioen voor onbepaalde tijd had uitgesteld én dat hij de winnaar van de prestigieuze Dumas-beurs later bekend zou maken.

Professor Moutte, the Doyen of the School of Theology at the University of Aix, is found murdered in his office. A page-turning mystery that transports you to the south of France with its lush portrait of a charming historic town, this continuation of the Provençal Mystery series captivates.

Death at the Château Bremont offers charming French locales, vivid characters and an intriguing who-done-it. Almost all our characters are French (apart from the handful of Italians) and are deemed to be speaking French to each other despite the text being written in English, a long-standing convention in writing fiction in a language other than that of the characters. One can only assume that she loves her adopted home from the warm descriptions of places and food included in her story. Het begint allemaal heel “cosy” en Longworth neemt uitgebreid de tijd om de personages voor te stellen en de omgeving te omschrijven.De weg daarnaartoe leidt je door verschillende landen en plaatsen, langs kunst en vervalsingen, geheimen, achterliggende motieven en de lastig doordringbare academische wereld. Najbardziej bolą błędy - głównie w tłumaczeniu, ale i w tekście źródłowym, bo czymże jest opis, że jedziemy pogadać z panem X, a potem radośnie rozmawiamy z panem Y (pan X już nie pojawia się w powieści), albo nagłe przeniesienie bohaterów w czasoprzestrzeni (w jednym akapicie piją kawę w domu, w kolejnym mówią sobie do widzenia na skrzyżowaniu - WFT.

Sometimes it is hard to figure out where his rudeness comes from, but the reader gets more and more hints of childhood issues and promises from him that an explanation to Marine is forthcoming. What really makes Longworth's writing special is her deep knowledge of French history, landscape, cuisine, and even contemporary cafes and restaurants.

We get lots of detail about all of the suspects, all their back stories, even some of their future stories (professor in Montana for one! Enchanted by the deep blue of the Mediterranean, the olive trees, poppies, irises and that dazzling light, artists found their creativity flourished under the hot sun. From Van Gogh in Arles, to Signac in Saint-Tropez; from Cézanne in Aix, over to Nice for Renoir and Matisse, the story unfolds of artists who knew each other and painted together in the warm south.

First Sentence: The friendship between Yann Falquerho and Thierry Marchive had surprised everyone at the university.

With a focus on people rather than buildings, history is unravelled through anecdotes with lots of suggestions of what to see when you visit. I checked this book out from my library (the only one of the series they had) on the basis of the TV mini-series which I had found bitterly disappointing and hoped that the book might be more fulfilling as I know Aix and the French academic milieu and expected a fond warmth to overwhelm me. This is the second novel in Longworth's detective series, but it is not necessary to have read the first to slip easily into the action of this one. Longworth evokes the pleasures of France in delicious detail—great wine, delicious meals, and fine company. She is the author of a mystery series set in Southern France, the Provençal Mysteries, published by Penguin USA.Once again, I was completely delighted by the characters and the setting without even really caring about the mystery. The expressions are all based on English-American facts: 'Bring back the cane' when the cane never existed in France, references to miles never used in France and so it goes on. Priests and nuns with academic credentials, while just as qualified, are significantly cheaper to employ than their lay counterparts , and are more able to provide support and advice for students planning to emulate them. Autorce udało się stworzyć wyjątkowy klimat, to wszystko jest takie lekkie, niespieszne, smaczne i z dyskretnym humorem. Longworth has a good eye and a sharp wit, and this introduction to Verlaque and Bonnet holds promise for a terrific series.
