(2018)
(The first book in the Death in Paris Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
The start of a delightful new cozy mystery series in which two American women are drawn into solving a series of crimes set in each Parisian arrondissement.

Edgar Bowen is dead, drowned in a bowl of soup. His former girlfriend, Rachel Levis, is surprised: how many people drown in a nice vichyssoise? Then she overhears a mourner at the funeral describe the circumstances of Edgar's death: when he was found, an open bottle of rose wine was on the table next to him. But Rachel knows Edgar loathed rose. If he wasn't drinking it, who was?

The police won't listen to the suspicions of a woman who has nothing more than an inappropriate bottle of wine on her side, so Rachel knows she, and her best friend Magda, will have to solve the mystery on their own. As the two women investigate, the list of suspects grows. Could it have been Edgar's son, who stands to inherit his money and lavish apartment? His icy ex-wife? His spendthrift new girlfriend? It seems like everyone close to Edgar had a reason to want him dead.

But then the suspects start dying, and Rachel and Magda realise the murderer is one step ahead of them, with no intention of slowing down. It's up to the two amateur sleuths to solve their first case, before someone gets away with murder...

Praise for this book

"Bernhard has crafted a delightfully atmospheric mystery, a pièce de résistance filled with the flavor of Paris, France." - Allyson K Abbott

"DEATH IN PARIS is as luscious as a pain au chocolat served at a sidewalk cafe -- and as charming as poking through the cobblestone alleyways of the Left Bank. Bernhard's debut promises a wonderful new series set in the most beautiful city in the world." - Juliet Blackwell

"A fun romp through Paris’s chicest districts alongside two delightful amateur sleuths." - M L Longworth

"Two younger, racier Miss Marples… American expats in Paris, live out their dreams with no more than the usual upset until financier Edgar Bowen drowns in his vichyssoise. It's not murder, say the police, but the wine tells a different story. A captivating cozy murder mystery with a bonus tour of everyone's favorite city." - John Pearce
