American Molly Sutton has earned her credentials as an amateur sleuth by the time this second book in the Molly Sutton mystery series begins. After all, she found a dead body in book 1. And now she’s stumbling over another one!

The story switches points of view very pleasingly, inviting readers into the lives of a wiser-than-he-realizes detective, sweet suspects who surely can’t be guilty, the one who should be guilty but is actually dead, and Molly (of course), weaving an enthralling tapestry around the events of a birthday party gone wrong. The cultural divide between big-city America and small-town France remains as broad as ever, well-rounded by the presence of Molly’s American friend. Meanwhile divides between young and old, male and female, sweet and nasty all arise, influencing suspicions and provoking argument. It’s all well-told, pleasantly good-natured, and centered on a fascinating mystery with Miss Marple overtones. An enjoyable read.

Disclosure: I only have an ebook, but maybe I should buy some print ones and continue reading the series. I’m enjoying it.
