A Deadly Eclair by Daryl Wood Gerber


A Deadly Eclair is the first in a new series by Daryl Wood Gerber.  I enjoy Ms. Gerber’s Cookbook Nook series and her Cheese shop series so I was happy to see another series from her.  This series is set in the Napa Valley and is centered on Mimi who is opening a French Bistro and Inn with a very generous financial help from a benefactor who believed in her ability to make a go of the enterprise.  During her first big event, a guest is murdered and Mimi herself is a suspect.  She takes it upon herself to investigate to clear her name and save her business.  I struggled with this one and I’m not sure I’ll read further in the series.  I didn’t find Mimi a likable character or one who is easy to relate to, but perhaps others, particularly people who like the Napa Valley theme will enjoy this.
