A Souffle of Suspicion was the second installment in the French Bistro series! I loved every single second of it! I loved getting to know the characters in this book!
It is Crush Week in Napa Valley as well as a Sweet Treats Festival at Mimi’s Restaurant and Inn! This is wonderful word of mouth for her new businesses. It is even more exciting that she was able to help her head chef Camille’s sister Rene in helping with a place for her festival to be.
Rene seems to be ahead of things when it comes to the festival, even though she has left her husband and is staying with her sister. Though she seems to rub a few people the wrong way even her sister. This wouldn’t seem unusual in the slightest if Rene wasn’t found murdered in Camille’s kitchen. It looks as if she was in the middle of making a chocolate souflee, Camille’s boyfriend’s favorite dessert. However there was trouble in paradise as well when Rene’s husband shows up and seems pretty sketchy.
This was a fantastic read and it kept me on my toes the entire time! I am normally quite adept at figuring out the ‘whodunit’ when it comes to Cozies, but this one had me on the edge of my seat the whole entire time! I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves recipes, fun characters, and a great mystery!
