I feel like there is a whole layer of witty humour to this book that I am missing because I'm not French. I didn't mind it that, I prefer a book to go over my head than speak down to me. The other thing is that it is heading into vintage territory. Apart from that it is a very engaging, slightly surreal and satisfying mystery. A good option to try for people who might be a little bored with US/UK/Scandi crime novels.

It took me ages to finish this. So it‘s my (late) #ontbrforever prompt for the #ReadWithMrBook challenge. I liked it while it started but then it got a bit bulky. Also there‘s a lot of conversations.

What to do while the library is closed?

Listen to Vargas‘ really good adaptation of her first book in the Three Evangelists series.
If you understand French it is a wonderful podcast adaptation. Each episode are less then 30 minutes.
The access is free at France Culture.

I really enjoyed this mystery! It had quirky, likable characters, descriptive writing, and I didn‘t figure out the #whodunit! Also, it was just so different from a lot of mysteries I‘ve read. Fantastic!
#WhoDunItByMail @ReadingEnvy This is headed your way today!

dariazeoli Hoping to make it to the post office after work tomorrow to get the next one off to you! 4y

It‘s on its way to you, @AndreaReads

This started out a little slow but picked up as it went along. I especially liked the guys in the “disgrace” and their cranky interactions with each other. Historians as investigators? Brilliant!

There are several references to food. (It is Paris, after all.) Nobody eats #pears 🍐but apples🍎 are mentioned.

Stuck for the afternoon at the garage. The censors in the new wheels I had put in 2 months ago are not talking to the main brain of the Jeep computer. Hence little lights are flashing being annoying. Also I keep hearing Sheldon saying your check engin light is on. Best place to read, not really but there's wifi and comfy chairs. #readinginoddplaces

rubyslippersreads And I hear Penny telling you to put a sticker over it. 😂 6y

Here's my book and journal for our #whodunitbymail mystery book club. I chose this journal because the book takes place in France.
It was a gift from @JulietteGF for our #summersantagoespostal book exchange.
I'll be mailing it out in a few days to @Marmie7

Marmie7 Love it! So excited to start this😀 6y
kspenmoll Journal is lovely! Went to Paris for my honeymoon- would live to get back ...someday! Excited to start this. Now to get my journal... (edited) 6y
