Christmas in Paris… What could possibly go wrong?
Ava Sext, an amateur sleuth and transplanted Londoner who sells books from an outdoor stand that overlooks the Seine River, has vowed that this Christmas will be the best Christmas ever. It has to be! It’s her first Christmas in Paris as a Parisian.
The fact that she will spend it alone as her boyfriend is off on a film shoot on the other side of the world and her friends and family are away doesn’t bother her at all. Paris is all she needs for a perfect Christmas. Plus, she’s been asked to help an antiquarian book dealer appraise the collection of a reclusive count who lives in a fabulous mansion on the Île Saint-Louis… a perfect way to spend the holidays.
But when someone pushes the book dealer in the Seine at a Christmas Fair leaving him between life and death, Ava, with the help of her fellow bookseller, Henri DeAth, a former notary in a country where notaries are a powerful caste who not only know where the bodies are buried but probably helped bury them, sets out to solve the crime.
“A little Paris Christmas Murder” is a light-hearted mystery 90-minute short read set in Paris, a city where food, wine and crime make life worth living… along with a few books.
It is part of the Paris Booksellers Mystery Series. Books can be read in any order.
