I just finished reading 'Murder in the South of France' by Susan Kiernan-Lewis.
I really have mixed feelings about this book. At times I felt it was moving along well and then it would slow down, take a weird turn and I would find it confusing.
I looked at some of the reviews on Amazon Books. A lot of them were scathing, relentless in their criticism. Others found it a delightful read. I guess people were as confused as I was.
Maggie, the main character, lives in Atlanta. She flies to France to identify her sister's body and to retrieve a niece that she never knew she had. When she returns from overseas she turns the little girl over to Maggie's mother and begins to investigate who killed her sister in France. But... things take a complete about-face and nothing that she thought was true, really is. Including a handsome Frenchman who has followed her back to Atlanta, declaring his love for her.
I expect a book to come to this amazing conclusion however this one did not. It stops abruptly. And, the next page said you can continue reading the story about Maggie in the next book. That put me off.
I got it for free on my Kindle. I certainly would not recommend paying for it.
