Book Description

In the sequel to Love & Death in Burgundy, Katherine Goff is at again when a body is found in place of a mannequin at the local museum.

"Not since my first visit to Louise Penny's Three Pines, have I encountered a more beguiling fictional world than Susan Shea's Reigny-Sur-Cannes. With an engaging cast, the rare realistic depiction of a good, modern marriage, a sideways look at a budding mystery-writer, and a real head-scratcher of a murder plot, Dressed for Death in Burgundy is a box of delights!" -Catriona McPherson, award-winning author of the Dandy Gilver series

After finding herself mixed up in a murder investigation the previous Summer, Katherine Goff’s life simply has not been the same. Her husband has been in the US recording a new album, the Burgundy region locals are finally starting to see her as a real neighbor, and Katherine has even started helping out with “tourist” excursions. It seems she’s finally found her place in the small community of Reigny-sur-Canne.

But when Katherine stumbles across a body in the local museum during a tour, she finds herself caught up once again in a whirlwind of gossip and speculation. When the police zero in on her friend Pippa as a suspect, Pippa and Katherine team up to find the real killer and clear her name.

However, the more clues they discover, the more the real killer wants them off the trail. When Katherine and Pippa start receiving threats, they must decide what they are more afraid of—the police getting it wrong, or possibly becoming the killer’s next targets.

Find out what happens next in the second installment in the French countryside murder mystery series the New York Times calls “a pleasant getaway.”

My Review

Dressed for Death in Burgundy is the second book in the French Village Mysteries series by Susan C. Shea. I did not read the first book in the series yet found that did not hamper my enjoyment of Dressed for Death in Burgundy.

Katherine, an American, is living in a small French village, Reigny-sur-Cannes. While her husband is away in the US, Katherine helps with tourist excursions. She finds a body in a local museum and Katherine and her friend Pippa set out to find the killer.

Fascinating descriptions of France. You feel like you really are there!

Beautiful cover! Great book for cozy mystery fans.
