It’s always been Mimi Rousseau’s dream to open her own bistro, but it seems beyond her grasp since she’s been chased back home to Nouvelle Vie in Napa Valley by her late husband’s tremendous debt. Until her best friend Jorianne James introduces her to entrepreneur Bryan Baker who invests in promising prospects. Now, working the bistro and inn until she’s able to pay it off and call it her own, Mimi is throwing the inn’s first wedding ever. The wedding will be the talk of the town, as famous talk show host Angelica Barrington, daughter of Bryan’s half-brother, Edison, has chosen the inn as her perfect venue. Anxious, Mimi is sure things are going to turn south, especially when Edison gets drunk and rowdy at the out-of-towners’ dinner, but by the evening, things begin to look up again. That is until 6:00 a.m. rolls around, and Bryan is found dead at the bistro with an éclair stuffed in his mouth. And the fingers point at Mimi, whose entire loan is forgiven in Bryan’s will. Now it’s up to Mimi to clear her name and get to the bottom of things before the killer turns up the heat again in A Deadly Éclair, the scrumptious series debut by Agatha Award–winning author Daryl Wood Gerber.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A delicious and charming new series by Daryl Wood Gerber, A Deadly Éclair is a sensory trip to the California Coast complete with a whodunit that will keep you turning the pages until the very end. Mimi Rousseau is smart, down-to-earth and relatable, and her sleuthing skills are topped only by the French cuisine she whips up with Chef C in her bistro. I can’t wait to sit down with a glass of wine and read the next book in this series.” Nancy Coco, author of the Candy-Coated mysteries
A Deadly Éclair is like having dinner with old friends. It has the laughter, the stories, the fun, and the good food all in one cozy.” BB Haywood, author of the Candy Holliday Murder mysteries
“Daryl Wood Gerber cooks up an intriguing tale of bistro business gone terribly wrong. The Napa Valley setting is perfect for the cast of quirky California characters, and Gerber draws us into the bistro scene with descriptions of mouth-watering meals that will make you want to buy a ticket west. A delectable entree in the French Bistro Mysteries.” Edith Maxwell, Agatha Award–nominated author
