What a fantastic story! Absolutely Brilliant!
I am in awe of Jennifer's storytelling. She weaves such marvellous stories! Paris, Valentine's week, delicious baked goodies, five bickering couples and murder - what a combination!
The second half of the story kept me on the edge of my seat. The ending is nothing short of a nail-biting adventure!
I highly recommend this book.

What could be better than Valentine’s Day in Paris?

Death by Baguette is the second murder mystery involving quick-witted Lana Hansen. A helpful, efficient tour-guide, she takes small groups of wealthy American tourists on organised visits to popular destination. This is also Lana’s first visit to Paris, but she is well prepared and nothing phases her, except discovering her new boyfriend, Chad, is one of the guests and he’s married! Visiting Paris, the city of love, in time for Valentine’s Day sounds idyllic for the couples she accompanies but ...more

Valentine's Day is for lovers. But on this tour to Paris, there are more squabbles than kisses between the couples Lana is overseeing as a tour guide. The City of Light is rife with arguments, snubs and temper tantrums between the couples on this Wanderlust tour.
The author doesn't slam the reader with the murder in the first few chapters. Rather, she gives the reader a chance to know each character thoroughly before one of the group is murdered. With plenty of history, background and

I loved the first book in this series Death on the Danube so I couldn't wait to read this next adventure for our tour guide Lana Hansen.

Lana is back and this time she is taking a tour to the most romantic city in the world for Valentines - Paris, France. After her last tour despite the death, her life is looking up, she has a job that she loves and even her love life is on the up and up. Though she is sad she wont be able to spend it with her new beau Chad, she is shocked to discover that he is

As always Jennifer S. Alderson's descriptions tantalized and fulfilled. Leaving us with both the desire to visit experience it, and the feeling that we’d done just that.

Also, for those of us who enjoy a cozier life, she takes us on the tour we would choose for ourselves. Good food, beautiful gardens, famous galleries and museums fill the pages like a Holiday wish list. Leaving us to feel, as though life and adventures need not end at a certain age, but continue to change and grow with

This terrific cosy mystery has a really good puzzle to be solved. In true Agatha Christie tradition, a group of people travelling together on a tour of Paris are all suspects in the death of one of their number. The method is not in dispute, but since several of them have a motive, finding the murderer is a challenge for group leader, Lana, and the French police. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as it has such a great sense of place and the wonderful sights of Paris are brought vividly to life. ...more

An excellent read.

Oh, I didn't want this book to end. It is equal to the first in this fabulous cozy mystery series, and this time is set in Paris.
Lana takes a group on a Valentine's day tour to the city of romance, visiting lots of the popular tourist attractions which are described so well, the reader is taken along on the journey with them.
A very cleverly constructed story of lies and deceit which leads to murder.
I cannot recommend it highly enough, and am looking forward to reading more

I do love a cozy mystery and this one was located in Paris which made it even better. A murder set amongst some of the city's most famous destinations, well drawn if somewhat tetchy characters and a determined sleuth in the form of tour guide Lana combine to make this, the second in the series Travel can be Murder, a Valentine's Day to remember. For all the wrong reasons. Definitely a cozy read.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy from the Great Escapes Book Tours. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Death By Baguette by Jennifer S. Alderson is a complex mystery filled with renewed love and deception.
Who hated the food critic enough to kill him?

Lana is our travel guide and, of course, our sleuth. She hasn't traveled much, but she does her homework and does a fabulous job of managing the tours normally. However, occasionally

Lana Hansen's life has taken financial and romantic turns for the better. She's gainfully employed in a job that includes luxurious travel, and has started dating again. Lana is about to embark on her fourth tour as a travel guide, leading a lovers-only trip to Paris for Valentine's Day. While she is excited about the destination, she doesn't relish spending Valentine's Day in one of the world's most romantic cities without her new boyfriend Chad . . .

So imagine Lana's surprise when Chad shows

What can be more romantic that a Valentine Day trip to Paris, the City of Lights and Love? Well for Lana the tour host, finding her new boyfriend is on the tour—with his wife—is not the best day in her life. But the tour must go on. When one guest is killed, Lana feels she must discover who the killer is in Death by Baguette, the second book in the Travel can be Murder series.

In the first book in the series, Death on the Danube, Lana is a new tour host for her landlady’s company, Wanderlust

Another great story in Lana's life as a destination tour guide - which funny, I've been seeing ads on different apps for a destination tour guide service for Italy. Just ironic, or my phone knows what I'm reading :). Anywho, Lana is headed to France this time with a group of married couples to take them around France. Which I love reading about these destination places because I can't fly over large bodies of water and this takes me there.

There is all sorts of mystery and intrigue afoot along

I needed a break from serious reading so I read this book. It is very light and easy to read and allows me to escape to a different country with a travel tour. I loved the descriptions of Paris and the various historic sites. As an avid baker, I was interested in the production of baguettes and wondered how poison had been put into one of the sauces. Even the murders and the murderers were different from what we usually get in this type of novel and I did not guess who the "bad guys" were, ...more

Paris during Valentines week, what could be more romantic and murderous. Ms. Alderson’s talented ability to description the sites and tastes of Paris made me feel like I was once again visiting the sites from long ago, eating that wonderful food at picturesque cafés and leisurely enjoying the beauty of those phenomenal gardens. Throw in some wacky tour goers, a murder that any of them could have committed and you’ve got one wonderfully enjoyable read.

Another fun cozy mystery, this time in Paris. I'm just bugged by the mix-up of Lana's age (no big thing, but annoying that this mistake is made--38 in first book and 6 weeks later, she is 47, 12 years younger than Chad who is 59).
