Book descriptionThe buoyant mood at Bistro Rousseau deflates when Chef Camille’s sister, Renee, turns up dead in the chef’s kitchen, and Mimi Rousseau must tease the real killer out of a mélange of menacing characters.
Crush Week in Nouvelle Vie is a madhouse—in a good way. Tourists pour into town for the pressing of the Napa Valley’s world-renowned grapes and all the town’s businesses get a nice lift, including Bistro and Maison Rousseau. Mimi is raising the ante this year with a Sweet Treats Festival, a wonderland of croissants, cakes, tarts, and soufflés crafted with expert care by the area’s top talents.
Chef Camille’s sister Renee is managing the festival with a cast-iron fist, upsetting everyone, including her sister. Which is bad for Camille when Renee turns up dead in the chef’s kitchen. Mimi is still building her business, so her first course of action is to whip up answers and catch the unsavory perpetrator before Camille takes a dusting and gets burned.

I always look forward to when I get a chance to read a new book by this author. The French bistro theme is enjoyable to me. I think it would be a nice place to have a bite to eat. Then in this installment you add in the Sweet Treats Festival, who would not want to go to that for a day out. I like how the author writes so that the story is fast paced. She likes to keep you guessing right up until the end on who killed Renee - Chef Camille's sister. You may be a little hungry while reading this book with all the great foods that Mimi talks about. I am looking forward to going along with Mimi in the next book in this series and see what she is up to next.
