Murder On the Riviera(2004)
(The second book in the Chrissy de Medici series)
A novel by Mary-Jane Deeb
Having recently inherited ten million dollars from her French Grand-mere, Marie-Christine "Chrissy" Medici is enjoying the sun-drenched beaches and culinary delights of the French Riviera. Prompted by her Grand-mere, Chrissy takes the plunge into her dreamed-of literary career by purchasing Le Loup Garou, a small newspaper in Grasse. But her journalistic profession - and her very life - is threatened to be cut short when the newspaper's former editor is found in his sitting room, shot dead. With the help of her sharp-witted Grand-mere, and the soft-spoken, impeccable cook Sister Angela from Cape Cod, Chrissy sets out to unravel the baffling chain of events that led up to the crime. But human emotions - envy, greed, the pain of lost love - cast suspicion on almost everyone involved. Can this trio of women outwit a deceptive and dangerous killer lurking in their very midst?
