Death at the Chateau Bremont

A Velarque & Bonnet Mystery

The first installment in a sumptuous new mystery series set in Provence-featuring chief magistrate Antoine Verlaque, who must team up with his old flame Marine Bonnet to solve a mysterious pair of murders
The latest book in the Verlaque & Bonnet Mystery series, The Curse of La Fontaine , is available now from Penguin Books!
When local nobleman Étienne de Bremont falls to his death from the family château, it sets the historic town of Aix-en-Provence abuzz with rumors. Antoine Verlaque, the charming chief magistrate of Aix, suspects foul play, and when he discovers that Bremont had been a close friend of Marine Bonnet, his on-again off-again girlfriend, Verlaque must turn to her for help.
The once idyllic town suddenly seems filled with people who scould have benefited from Bremont's death-including his playboy brother François, who's heavily in debt and mixed up with some unsavory characters. But just as Verlaque and Bonnet are narrowing down their list of suspects, another death occurs. And this time, there can be no doubt-it's murder.
A lively mystery steeped in the enticing atmosphere of the south of France and seasoned with romance as rich as the French cuisine that inspires it, this first installment in the acclaimed Verlaque & Bonnet Provençal Mystery series is as addictive and captivating as Provence itself.
"Longworth's voice is like a rich vintage of sparkling Dorothy Sayers and grounded Donna Leon. . . . Bon appétit!" - Booklist
Rezension
"This first novel in a projected series has charm, wit, and Aix-en-Provence all going for it. Longworth's voice is like a rich vintage of sparkling Dorothy Sayers and grounded Donna Leon . . . Longworth has lived in Aix since 1997, and her knowledge of the region is apparent on every page. Bon appétit." - Booklist
"A promising debut for Longworth, who shows there's more to France than Paris and more to mystery than Maigret." - Kirkus Reviews
"Mystery and romance served up with a hearty dose of French cuisine. I relished every word. Longworth does for Aix-en-Provence what Frances Mayes does for Tuscany: You want to be there-NOW!" -Barbara Fairchild, former editor in chief, Bon Appétit
"Death at the Château Bremont is replete with romance, mystery, and a rich atmosphere that makes the south of France spring off the page in a manner reminiscent of Donna Leon's Venice. A wonderful start to a series sure to gain a legion of fans." -Tasha Alexander, author of the Lady Emily mysteries
"Longworth has a good eye and a sharp wit, and this introduction to Verlaque and Bonnet holds promise for a terrific series." - The Globe and Mail
" Death at the Château Bremont offers charming French locales, vivid characters and an intriguing who-done-it." -Kevin R. Kosar, author of Whiskey: A Global History
"Here's hoping the series lasts for years." - RT Book Reviews
"Your readers will eat this one up." - Library Journal
