My husband enjoyed this (he knows all about wine) and when he told me the plot I thought I'd like to read it!
Reads like Lovejoy or McGee lite.
Not a bad book by author outside his comfort zone.
Best as summer reading.
A light, quick read: there is lots of info about good French wine and food. The characters are few and stereotypic, so this is a good alternative to reading a romance.
A light, quick read involving a possible insurance scam.
A charming summer read for the francophile. The plot is lively and the characters charming but pretty stereotypical and not complex. As there is travel thriugh France you get the vicarious enjoyment of the descriptions of the meals and wine. A fun light read.
Mayle hit his peak with the Provence experiences but proves to be a bland, mundane novelist relying on his early success to sell these mindless tales.
Your second or third re-read of "A Year In Provence" will be much more entertaining than opening this one.
Amusing L.A. character description with a fun, light-hearted, predictable plot.
Sam Levitt, con man turned good guy, is hired to uncover the truth about the theft of some high priced French wine. It's a good first effort in the mystery genre with lots of good food and wine consumed as you'd expect from a book written by Peter Mayle. There are some good twists and turns in this caper.
