In the third book in the India Street Nantucket cozy mystery series, India's teacher, mentor and good friend Maggie West inherits a castle in Provence. She invites India to become her partner in the Castle Restaurant. A really tempting offer! India loves the South of France, but she is fully vested in her own fledgling business, the Blue-Eyed Scallop Catering Co. back home on Nantucket Island. Recently reunited with the love of her life, Ben Thatcher, who has also returned to the island, she is happily tied to her new life. If only she could live two wonderful lives simultaneously.
When Maggie calls from a "dank and moldy, stinking cell" in a French jail, charged with murder--poisoning her popular garlicky escargot appetizer--things immediately change for India.
Not only must she fill in for Maggie at the restaurant, but since the local gendarmerie seem apathetic about finding the real murderer, she and the handsome French second chef, Pierre, find themselves embroiled in witchcraft and a perverse scheme to punish a handful of villagers for the ancient Biblical Seven Deadly Sins.
The breathtaking beauty of Provence, the usual foodie overtones, mystery, intrigue and ancient esoteric secrets all combine to spark an international romance. Will India fall for the charming Frenchman's charms or return to Ben back home? The route to the solution of the crimes (more murders are on the horizon) is riddled with ruts and bumps. Take a virtual tour of Provence in this exotic mystery.
