Every once in awhile, you find a great mystery that puts on no airs and treats you to a worthwhile romp through another country. This book could have been a 1940's movie - completely well rounded - no hard edges and fun to follow. If you're looking for a great diversion - it's a well written book that teaches you a thing or two about France, wine and the art of writing.

At first, I was not a huge fan of the novel, as the setting and characters in L.A. were too superficial for my taste, and the aura of the plot was not nearly as relaxing as A Good Year or A Year in Provence. However, after Sam, the insurance detective, heads off to Marseilles, my feelings began to change. I think Mayle demonstrates the contrast of attitudes and personalities in Europe versus the West Coast, and the expatiations on wine and gourmet food left me craving a fine dining experience.

Have always enjoyed Peter Mayle's books. This was delightful and an easy read. I enjoyed the relationships and the character development. I like his writing style and enjoy the descriptions of both his characters and the locales. This particular book gave some interesting details of wine. I love wine but am not an "expert" on all of the nuances of the grape. I hope he will write more - both fiction and "escapism".

this book was a disappointment. I have been a avid follower of Peter's books but this one was not nearly as good as others he has written. Almost like he had a deadline to meet and put this out. Hope he gets his groove back.
