--Publishers Weekly

Praise for Death in Paris:
"Tr�s charmant...Fans of cozies and the City of Lights, or drawn to the theme of female friendship, will eagerly await an encore. Pair this with Cara Black's beloved Aim�e Leduc series."
--Booklist, starred review

"[A] delightful debut and series launch... Bernhard fills the novel with entertaining characters, conjures up an authentic Paris, and gives the reader intelligent, if frothy, fun."
--Publishers Weekly

"This who enjoy contemporary cozy mysteries with amateur sleuths will gobble it up."
--Library Journal

"A vivid picture of the delights and day-to-day of Paris living... Rachel and Magda are a wonderful sleuthing duo and I enjoyed them hashing out the information about the suspects, in true Parisian fashion."
--Night Owl Reviews

"Francophiles in particular will enjoy and be familiar with the descriptions of Parisian food, clothes, fashions, hairstyles, boulevards, streets, shops, cafes, language, and culture."
--NY Journal of Books

"A fun romp through Paris's chicest districts alongside two delightful amateur sleuths."
--M. L. Longworth, author of the Proven�al Mystery series

"​With a dreamy location, plenty of sensory details, a passel of suspects, and a dash of suspense, Death in Paris is as luscious as a pain au chocolat served at a sidewalk cafe. Bernhard's debut promises a wonderful new series set in the most beautiful city in the world."
--Juliet Blackwell, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Key

"Bernhard has crafted a delightfully atmospheric mystery, a pi�ce de r�sistance filled with the flavor of Paris, France."
--Allyson K. Abbott, author of Murder on the Rocks

"Two younger, racier Miss Marples, American expats in Paris, live out their dreams with no more than the usual upset until financier Edgar Bowen drowns in his vichyssoise. It's not murder, say the police, but the wine tells a different story. A captivating cozy murder mystery with a bonus tour of everyone's favorite city."
--John Pearce, author of Treasure of Saint-Lazare
