Gobbell’s refreshing debut introduces Jordan Mayfair, an architect from Savannah, Ga., who joins her 72-year-old travel writer uncle, Alex Carlyle, on a journey to Provence. Jordan’s troubles begin when their flight to Paris is diverted to Brussels, where she leaves her suitcase on a commuter train. The efforts of an American dressed like a cowboy to get it to her before the train pulls out of the station are to no avail. Later, in Paris, Jordan is stunned to see the cowboy-looking American she encountered in Brussels. Stranger still is the cowboy ending up outside her hotel as a hit-and-run victim. Jordan and Alex eventually reach the village of Fontvieille, where her hotel room is ransacked and her new suitcase flung open. Someone apparently believes Jordan has something valuable in her possession, but what? Seasoned with humor and evocative descriptions of magnificent historic sites, this whodunit should appeal to fans of both cozies and traditional mysteries. (Apr.)
