French Pastry Murder
page 56:
This was an emergency, she was yelling her head off, but where were all the other people in the building? She feared he was already dead, but then he groaned, and she realized she had to get help, fast. 
Book beginning:
Lucy Stone shut her eyes tight and rolled over, trying to ignore the ringing phone on her bedside table. When that didn't work, she wrapped a pillow over her ears and held it tight but the ringing continued. She knew who was calling, and it was beginning to be a nuisance, these phone calls at five and six in the morning. 
Publisher's description:  

Leslie Meier's beloved sleuth Lucy Stone is saying "Au revoir!" to Tinker's Cove, Maine, and "Bonjour!" to Paris to take in the sights, learn how to bake authentic French pastries, and experience some joie de vivre. But her dreams of la vie en rose are put on hold when the City of Lights turns deadly.  ( published September 30, 2014 by Kensington) 


  1. A cozy and the victim survived? Now that's a new one. Look at that precious cover art.
    I almost posted about a new cozy I'm reading but went with a scary one for Halloween. Seen a lot of cozies today and added them to my list!
    here is my 56 - http://fuonlyknew.com/2014/10/17/the-friday-56-41-a-hidden-element/

  2. What a cute cover! I love cozies and am surprised the victim survived.

  3. I've been wanting to read this series and this sounds like a great one! I hope you're enjoying it! I'll definitely have to look for this one next time I'm at the library.

  4. Phone calls that early in the morning would annoy me too! This sounds like a fun story in a delightful setting. Cute cover too.
    My Friday post features NOT YET.

  5. Fun "56" and book beginning! The cover of this cozy is ooh la la! :)

  6. I hate early morning phone calls. I always thing something is wrong, and it usually is so I answer it.

    Thanks for sharing.

  8. I don't like early morning phone calls either.

    This sounds like a good book, I haven't read many cozies lately!
