The Killer Karma

This is the second cozy in the series set in the South of France written by Ana T. Drew.   The adventures with Julie Cavallo and her family and friends continued to entertain and engage me.   Ms. Drew is a very good storyteller who mixes descriptions and plot very well.  She has just enough prose to deliver the reader to Beldoc and the patisserie but not so much you want to start skipping paragraphs. 

Her character development makes you want to get to know them better and you cannot help but laugh at the quirky antics of Julie and Flo's grandmother, Rose.  This story gives us a more detailed glimpse into the girls' childhood and how they came to lose their mother.  Much of that story helps to explain who Julie is and why some of her behaviors are what they are.  Julie continues to be charmed with the handsome gendarme, Adinian, while inserting herself into his investigation as she tries to help her sous chef, Eric. 

All in all a fun and engaging cozy that transports us to Provence.  I look forward to reading the next installment, Sinister Sailboat, due out in Oct 2020.

The Killer Karma (Julie Cavallo Investigates, #2)The Killer Karma by Ana T. Drew
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a great series. I enjoyed reading this vistas much as the first I the series With Ms. Drew's details you cannot help but feel as though you are in the South of France in Beldoc. Her descriptions of Julie Cavallo's pastries makes your mouth water. She continued to develop the characters we met in the first book while helping her son's chef, Eric, determine who killed his estranged father this book can be read alone even if you didn't read the first in the series I cannot wait until the next book is released this fall
