Jeannette de Beauvoir is the bestselling author of the Sydney Riley (Provincetown) mystery series and the Martine LeDuc (Montréal) mystery series. She also writes some historical fiction out of a true love of the past and a desire to make her decades of student loan payments for history degrees make sense.

She always writes about strong and smart female protagonists, perhaps in the hope that one day she'll be more like them.

She lives in a small cottage at the tip of Cape Cod and begins her days with a walk on the beach. Well, most days. February is a little challenging.

Toxic literature: When is it too much?

Philip Larkin. Roald Dahl. Morrissey. Frances Hodgson Burnett. Emmanuel Kant. Aristotle. T.S. Eliot. Pablo Neruda. F. Scott Fitzgerald. H.P. Lovecraft. Ezra Pound.

You’re probably aware of where I’m going with this list. All brilliant people delivering brilliant thought and literature, words that have changed the world. Also, singly or together, racist, misogynist, antisemitic, fascist.

It’s no

Quotes by Jeannette de Beauvoir  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“But the reality is that it is impossible to explain, to verbalize, to articulate the fear that they instill in you. The people who judge, the people who criticize, who don’t get it—you have to understand, they’re coming at the situation from a position of safety, of security, of self-esteem. You cannot imagine, when you’re well and safe and contented, that you could ever feel otherwise. When you’re in it... it’s like a vortex, a dark, whirling whirlpool that swallows up everything that you ever thought was you, your thoughts, your values, your beliefs, and leaves you with an empty, shattered shell. And that shell, you realize painfully, gradually, is you.”
Jeannette de Beauvoir, In Dark Woods

“I closed my eyes, but that didn't blur the images his words had evoked. "Oh, God," I murmured.
"God," he said, "had nothing to do with it at all.”
Jeannette de Beauvoir

“Everyone seemed to think that violence was an acceptable risk and a foregone conclusion for prostitutes, call girls and streetwalkers alike. There was almost an air of, well, what did she expect? What did she expect, indeed? To be allowed to live?”
Jeannette de Beauvoir
