French Bistro #1
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
show host Angelica Edmonton, 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 six AM 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.
