When Clémence 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, Clémence announces that he has been dead for two days. But finding the murderer proves harder than the previous cases and Clémence hits a wall with her investigation. Inspector Cyril St. Clair has his own lead, but Clémence thinks he's wrong-again.
Meanwhile, her handsome but arrogant neighbor Arthur Dubois asks her out on a date. Will she ever open her heart to let love in? And will Clémence 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.
If you like light-hearted cozy mysteries with recipes by Joanne Fluke or Jessica Beck, you'll enjoy The Patisserie Mysteries. Join Clémence and her friends as they solve murder cases, bake macarons and other treats, and fall in love in The City of Lights.
