Richard is a middle-aged Englishman who runs a B&B in the Val de Follet. Nothing ever happens to Richard, and really that’s the way he likes it.

Until scandal erupts in the nearby town of Saint-Sauver when its famous restaurant is downgraded from three ‘Michelin’ stars to two. The restaurant is shamed, the town is in shock and the leading goat’s cheese supplier drowns himself in one of his own pasteurisation tanks. Or does he?

Valerie d’Orcay, who is staying at the B&B while house-hunting in the area, isn’t convinced that it’s a suicide. Despite his misgivings, Richard is drawn into Valerie’s investigation, and finds himself becoming a major player.

Publisher Review

Praise for Death and Croissants (A Follet Valley Mystery, Book 1) 'A very funny page-turner. Fantastique!' -- Adam Kay, author of This is Going to Hurt 'An engaging caper... It is finely paced, truly funny and written with a wry detachment that conjures up a gentler age of murder mystery' * The Times * 'Bloody and funny. In fact, bloody funny!' -- Alan Carr 'A writer of immense wit and charm' -- Paul Sinha 'Like going on a joyous romp through the Loire valley with Agatha Christie, PG Woodhouse and Mc Beaton. A delight' -- C.K. McDonnell
