I loved this story so much! I traveled to Brittany for this book! I couldn‘t sleep last night so this book kept me company. I highly recommend reading the other books in this series first. This is an auto read author for me. #travelthroughreading #brittany #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

BrittanyReads That's where my mom got the idea for my name. Haha I'm tempted to read this series in honor of my namesake. And I love witchy tales. This book is 3rd in the series, no? 1w
KristiAhlers Yes this book 3 in this particular series by this author. She has another witchy series as well. She really tells a wonderful story. I think you‘ll like it. And that‘s totally awesome about your name. It‘s actually a very pretty part of France. 1w

When Louis Kehlweiler spots a human toe bone on a Paris street, he goes looking for the bone's owner although no bodies with a missing toe have been reported.

The 3 evangelists are less prominent in this book than I remember them being in the 1st book. Louis is the focus here, with the evangelists in supporting roles - and Lucien hardly even that. Despite that, it was a fun, quirky read which kept my interest throughout.

I was as able to figure out who the murderer was before the end so it is not the greatest as a mystery but this is really a different type of cozy mystery. Inspector Dupin and Brittany and its eccentric characters and beautiful countryside are the real point of the book. Loved it and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series

Listening to a murder mystery by Jean-Luc Brannalec set in the Breton coast. It is the first book in a series,and it is making me want to visit the north of 🇫🇷!!

When I started reading this book, the name Dupin rang a bell... Then I remembered having started on mhzchoice a German TV series called Dupin, which is based on these books.
I wasn't seduced by the story, nor by the commissaire. The only things that I enjoyed in the plot were the art references. I probably won't be reading any other book in this series. I'll go on with the TV series, less time consuming, and a great way to practice my German.

Blood Dark | Louis Guilloux

Blood Dark (Sang noir) was recommended by someone whose tastes I respect. It takes place on a single day in 1917, in Saint-Brieuc, a small town in Brittany, and describes the comings and goings of various town people, but centering on Cripure, a frustrated and depressed philosophy teacher at the local high school (at a time where high school was for a small élite). The pessimism and the free indirect speech give a flaubertian flavour to the book.

There were too many descriptions of landscapes for my liking. Also I solved the case 2/3 into the book. But it was a good closer for my crime-frenzy. Now onto novels again.
