Praise

Praise for The Curse of La Fontaine

“Beguiling . . . Longworth evokes the pleasures of France in delicious detail—great wine, delicious meals, and fine company.” —Publishers Weekly

“Longworth confirms her long-standing lovebirds as Aix’s Nick and Nora; their pursuit of miscreants never interferes with their enjoyment of the good life.” —Kirkus Reviews


Praise for The Mystery of the Lost Cezanne

“Art theft is a hot topic on the mystery scene, and no one’s heist is livelier than Longworth’s.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A sure thing for fans of art-themed mysteries.” —Booklist

“Enchanting . . . the charming local citizens of Aix-en-Provence provide the true delights in this colorful story.” —Library Journal 


Praise for Murder on the Île Sordou

“Charming.” —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

“[T]horoughly delightful . . . Longworth deftly handles what is in effect a locked-room mystery, but the book’s real strength lies in the backstories she creates for each of the distinctive characters. The puzzle’s answer, buried in the past, is well prepared by what has come before.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Longworth once again immerses readers in French culture with this whodunit, which will delight Francophiles and fans of Donna Leon and Andrea Camilleri. The setting will also appeal to readers who enjoy trapped-on-the-island mysteries in the tradition of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None.” —Library Journal

“Longworth’s novels, set in the south of Franc,e are mysteries for foodies, with the plot providing a table upon which the enchanting meals and accompanying wines are served.” —Booklist

“[A] charming read with a well-crafted mystery and characters as rich and full bodied as a Bordeaux.” —Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“A splendid read.” —Mystery Scene

“Longworth’s maritime version of a country-house cozy offers genuine pleasures.” —Kirkus Reviews
