fantastic suspense

characters you'll want to know

And a big pile of warm croissants

"Nell has woven her tale in such a warm and comfortable manner that puts you in the very heart of all of it. I felt like I was sitting one stool down from them at the restaurant and so much a part of the whole scene. That is the kind of writing that the greatest of series authors are born of."

"What a feast for the senses! In addition to being a terrific mystery--I didn't see the end coming even though, in retrospect, the clues were there--this book gave me a free vacation. I felt as if I could see, smell, TASTE this French village."
