Sunday Post: Murder on the Left Bank by Cara Black


Murder on the Left Bank (An Aimée Leduc Investigation #18)

I finished reading Murder on the Left Bank by Cara Black, published June 19, 2018, Soho Crime, the 18th in the Aimee Leduc Investigations series set in Paris. I was not disappointed in this new book and love that the author includes so much of Paris in her novel. People, places, streets, atmosphere are all here and would mean a lot to those who have walked these streets in that great city, and mean so much more to those who want to visit and travel in the main character's, Aimee's footsteps. 

A notebook holding secrets from the WWII past of Paris is stolen, and people are being killed by those who want to find and destroy the notebook's damaging evidence. Aimee makes it a point to follow up on these murders and find the incriminating evidence, even while putting her baby in harm's way. A mixture of danger and suspense blends the personal and the professional life of private investigator Aimee, as she goes about her duties while following her deep sense of justice. A five star READ.


Tahoe Skydrop (An Owen McKenna Mystery Thriller Book 16)

Tahoe Skydrop, the 16th in the Owen McKenna Mystery Thriller series, will be published August 6, 2018 by Thriller Press. Thanks to the author for a review copy. Review will be coming soon. I'm enjoying the book right now!

I'm about twenty pages into Murder on the Left Bank, but I decided to set it aside for next year's Paris in July. I knew I wouldn't have time to finish it before July is over. I'm glad to see you enjoyed it.

I always enjoy Todd Borg's books. I see we both have statements from our reviews quoted in them.

I'm sure this one will be as good as always. I can't get to it until October.

ENJOY your week.

I need to check out Cara Black's books. This one sounds tempting.

The setting of Lake Tahoe is calling to me.

Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

I can heartily recommend both series!

You won't be disappointed. The first book in the Cara Black series is especially good.

Good covers, good reads too.

It's excellent so far, Elizabeth!

You would like both series, Laurel-Rain.

Both of these books are new to me. I'm curious about a mystery series that keeps you reading all the way to book 18. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

Harvee said...

Hope you try it. The first book in the series, Murder in the Marais, is really good.

Girl Who Reads said...

I'll have to tell my reviewer Susan about Murder on the Left Bank as she loves Paris and WWII stories. See what I read this month at Girl Who Reads.

Harvee said...

The first in the series, Murder in the Marais, deals with WWII and Paris as well.

Martha Eskuchen said...

Both of these sound good. It speaks well for the series that you are reading book 16. The series is new to me. Happy Reading!

Murder of the Left Bank sounds like a good one from Cara. I haven't read books from her in ages.

This one I got from the library, Serena. It was waiting for me!
