When Clemence Damour and her best friend Rose return from a weekend spa retreat in Switzerland, they discover Rose's boyfriend Pierre's dead body in the kitchen. By the hardness of the half-eaten baguette on the table, Clemence announces that he has been dead for two days. But finding the murderer proves harder than on the previous cases and she hits a wall with her investigation. Inspector Cyril St. Clair has his own lead, but Clemence thinks he's wrong, as usual.
Meanwhile, her handsome but arrogant neighbor Arthur Dubois asks her out on a date. Will Clemence ever open her heart to let love in again? Will she find out who killed Pierre and get justice for Rose? Perhaps the truth is right in front of her, but she just doesn't want to see it.
Join Clemence and her friends as they solve murder cases, bake French pastries, and fall in love in The City of Lights. If you like Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swensen mysteries or Leighann Dobb's Lexy Baker series, you'll also enjoy The Patisserie Mysteries.
Baguette Murder is the 3rd book (25k novella) in this new culinary cozy series set in Paris, France, featuring delicious recipes of French pastries and desserts. They don't have to be read in order, but it is recommended, as the characters' relationships develop throughout the series."
