From critically acclaimed author, Susan C. Shea, comes Love & Death in Burgundy, an atmospheric mystery novel filled with good Chablis, french cheese, and, of course, murder.

After three years of living in the small town of Reigny-sur-Canne, all Katherine Goff really wants is to be accepted by her neighbors into their little community. But as an American expat living in the proud region of Burgundy, that’s no easy task.

When the elderly Frenchman who lives in the village chateau is found dead at the bottom of a staircase, the town is turned into a hot bed of gossip and suspicion, and Katherine suddenly finds herself drawn deeper and deeper into the small town’s secrets. A motherless teenager, a malicious French widow, a brash music producer, and a would-be Agatha Christie are among those caught up in a storm that threatens to turn Katherine’s quiet life upside down. As more and more of the villagers' secrets are brought to light, Katherine must try to figure out who, if anyone, in the town she can trust, and which one of her neighbors just might be a killer.

CHAPTER 1

Reigny-sur-Canne was hardly more than a crossroads in Burgundy’s famous landscape of pastures and grapevine-planted terroirs on rolling hills, overlooked by tourists for the most part, which was fine with its residents....

Praise for Love & Death in Burgundy

"Love and Death in Burgundy will transport readers to the French countryside as the charmingly flawed artist heroine dabbles with a palette of murder, secrets and eccentric characters sure to delight. Shea's affection for her characters illuminates each passage and readers who spend an evening with them, perhaps with a glass of French wine, will be glad they did." -Lauren DiSilverio, author of The Readaholics and the Poirot Puzzle -
