I have the sneaking suspicion that a lot of French people feel about Sagan's novella the way a lot of American readers now feel about On the Road: either a rite of passage, not worthwhile &/or cliché. I do recall enjoying this one & being surprised by some of the darker elements in what I thought would have been a really charming read. A good beach read that will stick with you for a bit.

Ruthiella Definitely darker than I expected as well. 1w

Commissaire Dupin faces another wild & wildly complicated investigation in Brittany. He speaks of his love for the Breton artist, Maxine Maufra,a painter I have never heard of. I love when I discover something new in a book & the excitement I feel as I delve into that subject.

Cuilin I love when that happens, I had to look up some other paintings, they‘re quite beautiful. Thanks for posting. 1w

Another glorious morning. Blue skies, a scattering of white clouds,soft breeze, bird song. I can hear a nearby house finch. My chimes are gently clanging.The grass was just cut. I love the fresh cut grass smell! I am full of gratitude. #porchlife #grateful #birdsong #ABrittanyMystery #coffeeandbooks

Tamra Reminds me of the grandfather in Bradbury‘s Dandelion, he was adamant about not having the new fangled short grass that would never need mowing bc he loved that smell. 😁 Me too. 2w

I‘ve heard her compared to Colette probably because she focuses on women‘s lives. The fact she doesn‘t write in first person is a big plus in my book, Maybe it‘s my imagination but it‘s becoming more and more common.

Tonight I am traveling to the Forest of Broceliande,the land of King Arthur and his Round Table with Commissaire Dupin. Aren‘t the end papers pretty? I love the white stag superimposed on the green of the forest. #ABrittanyMystery #KingArthurlegends #librarybook

Here‘s my review for this book I DNF‘d. I‘m counting this book for #bookspinbingo. I‘m glad I got it off of my list.
