It’s love at first sight when Penelope Kite sees Le Chant d’Eau—the Song of Water—a stone farmhouse tucked high in the hills above the Luberon valley, complete with a garden, a swimming pool, and sweeping mountain vistas. For years, Penelope put her unfaithful ex-husband and her ungrateful stepchildren first. Since taking early retirement from her job in forensics at the Home Office in England, she’s been an unpaid babysitter and chauffeur for her grandchildren. Now she’s going to start living for herself. Though her dream house needs major renovations, Penelope impulsively buys the property and moves to St Merlot.

But Penelope’s daydreams of an adventurous life in Provence didn’t include finding a corpse floating facedown in her swimming pool. The discovery of the dead man plunges her headlong into a Provençal stew of intrigue and lingering resentments simmering beneath the surface of the deceptively sunny village. To find answers, Penelope must carefully navigate between her seemingly ubiquitous, supercilious (and enviably chic) estate agent, the disdainful chief of police, and the devilishly handsome mayor—even as she finds herself tempted by all the delicacies the region has to offer. Thank goodness her old friend Frankie is just a flight away . . . and that Penelope is not quite as naïve as her new neighbors in St Merlot believe.

Set against the exquisite backdrop of Provence, steeped in history, atmosphere, and secrets, Death in Provence introduces an irresistible heroine and a delightful new mystery series.
