The Body by the Sea

All of Bannalec’s books have a similar cover design. Every time that I see one, I know that I want to read the book. This title, the eighth in the series, was no exception.

I love the detective, the French setting in Brittany, the foods and the mysteries. This time a doctor falls to his death from a balcony. Dupin investigates him and some of his business associates while dealing with his own family and, of course, finding time to eat. Plus, there is a second murder. All in all, an enjoyable read that netted a Publishers Weekly starred review.

(By the way, there has been a TV series made of some of the earlier books. I think that it is shown on MHZ network.)

Many thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
