    • I've now read #1,#6 and this one #3 in the Maggie Newberry series (in that order), all free via BookBub. I had planned to read them all before going to France last month but now I'm glad I didn't. It was so nice to really be able to picture the town of St. Buvard, the vineyards climbing up the hills, the grape harvesting, the mistral wind, Arles with its cobbled streets, narrow alleys and street cafes. I loved this book. Maggie has certainly grown on me since the first one, Murder in the South o [...]


    • Poor editing marred readabilityThe story line was fine but the editing or lack of, took away from the enjoyment and readability of the book. Sometimes even the characters names were mixed up.


    • Maggie has decided to write a cookbook because she is bored and her husband, Laurent, is a chef. She doesn’t know anything about cooking, but she figures she can get all she needs from him. It is driving him crazy. He seems to spend more time in the vineyard and with his friends at the bar than her.Everyone had heard of the murder of the nurse who worked at the same hospital as Yves. It had been two weeks and there was no arrest or suspect in sight.Maggie was losing her best friend, Grace, who [...]


    • My first and last read of this series. The story follows the main character Maggie, a bored newlywed who has relocated to France. She decides to write a cookbook but does not cook. Her best friend Grace, who is returning to live in the US, introduces her to a local artist Marie. They spend many hours meeting for lunch and at sometimes volatile family dinners. Maggie meets Marie's daughter Brigitte and decides this will be her new BFF. But Brigitte is murdered the day after they meet. Bored Maggi [...]


    • This was a super quick read! I think I would have been more comfortable reading the previous books in the series first though. The author gives you some background info, but you just feel like you haven't heard the whole story, and might be missing some key elements that are the reason for the way the primary characters react the way they do. But it's not a bad little read. I have to admit I did not see the ending coming! Some clues were there, but I just guessed wrong. Bummer, but good for the [...]


    • This was a free book from a writer.e story was really good , there were a few typos, but that did not hurt the story. There was a great mystery, the refences to food, I enjoyed some of the characters, and some I did not. I would recommend this to my friends.


    • Great cozy mystery book with lots of twists and turns. The descriptions of the scenery and surroundings will make you want to visit France, and all the talk of recipes and French food will make you hungry! This book will keep you guessing right up to the end.


    • I loved this book. I probably would have liked it no matter what because it combines two of my favorites - France and mysteries. But this was a really well written, enjoyable book with a good mystery. I already ordered the other books in the series and can't wait to read them.


    • This book was better than I expected! It was really interesting, it pulls you into the story. You connect with the characters in the book, you can't help but continue reading. I couldn't put the book down. I would definitely recommend this book to others!


    • I really liked this who done it, kept me guessing till the end of the book. I also liked how this author painted pictures with her words. It kept bringing images to mind from time to time.


    • Love, friendship, and murder in the beautiful setting of Provence. An enjoyable read that kept me guessing to the end! I will definitely return to the series!


    • Just finished reading and this was a very good book. I am going to have to read the first two now to see what I have missed. This book grabs hold of you from the first chapter.


    • Somehow I started this series in order, but that didn't last long- so I can assure you that while I read the book that introduced Maggie and Laurent, I seem to have skipped a book in between. It did not make one iota of difference in my enjoyment of Murder in Provence. I will be reading #2 in the near future, Murder in the South of France (or Nice). Having picked up and packed up and moved to France with her 'reformed' con artist now husband, Maggie is now living what promises to be a wonderful [...]


    • The third in the Margie Newberry series did not disappoint, and I enjoyed this complex whodunit of French relationships gone bad.The food, wine, scenery, culture and ambience of Provence are intertwined in every page of these stories.I look forward to seeing where the next adventure takes Maggie and Laurent.



    • A good story! I didn't care much for all the French words. They kept my train of thought stopping, therefore the flow of the story for me took too much time.



    • A Murder in Provence (Maggie Newberry Mysteries #3)by Susan Kiernan-LewisGenre: cozy mysteryThis is the first book of the series that I have read, and while there were tantalizing references, I had no problem following the plot or enjoying the story. As a matter of fact, I'm going to go back and read the others, although I would think that this novel contained spoilers for the previous ones.*c'est la vie*According to her friends in Atlanta, Georgia, Maggie is "living the life" in a vineyard with [...]


    • I really enjoyed this book. It is a mystery at its best. With the third instalment in the Maggie Newberry Mystery Series Susan Kiernan-Lewis once again brings the unlikely amateur sleuth into action. An American transplanted to the small town of St-Buvard, France, Maggie lives on a vineyard with her super sexy ex-conman husband Laurent. But she is hopelessly homesick so she has created a make work project of writing a cookbook to keep her mind busy, which proves to be a daunting task given the f [...]


    • This book is amongst one of the best mysteries I have read so far this year! I started reading MURDER IN PROVENCE in the evening & I always know when a book is great when I fall asleep & dream about the characters in the book! I couldn't wait to get up the next morning & continue reading this book. The main character, Maggie Newberry, is an Ex Patriot who is living in Provence with her handsome French husband, Laurent. She's working on writing a French cookbook, but is having a terri [...]


    • For the first quarter of the book, we are leisurely introduced to the Maggie, Grace, and Marie and the little French town they live in. We learn of the marital situations of each as well as the peculiarities of Marie’s daughters. The rape and murder of a nurse is only mentioned as part of dinner party conversation. They are all much more interested in their own concerns: Grace getting ready to move to California, Maggie trying to adjust to marriage and filling her idle time with haphazardly wr [...]


    • 3.5 starsThis story is about an unlikely American sleuth in a small town in France. Maggie has a rather uneventful life and takes on the project of writing a cookbook of American tastes in France. She drives her husband, the owner of a vineyard and excellent cook, to distraction. He often shoos away her inquiries driving Maggie to seek entertainment/answers for her cookbook elsewhere. Maggie has few friends and one of her friends Grace is moving back to the US, and Maggie goes in search of a rep [...]


    • Laurent and Maggie are having problems communicating without fighting. Maggie's not sure what the problem is but she finds herself on the end of temptation with sexy detective Roger Bedard who is investigating the murders of women who have a connection with the local hospital. Who is murdering these women and why?I enjoyed Murder in Provence. I thought I had it figured out early in the book but I was so wrong. The murders are not pretty but the mystery is well done. There is just enough informat [...]


    • I teetered on the verge of three stars, so lets say 3 and a half stars while reminding everyone that three does mean I 'liked it.' I decided on four though because although I don't think I would say four stars in conversation, I did like it enough to want to read the two books that come before this one. I am not sure if that is just because I always grow attached to characters though.One of the things I did really love about this book is the characters. All of them were very well fleshed out and [...]


    • French countryside, French food, and a sexy French husband are not quit fulfilling American transplant, Maggie Newberg's life in her French country vineyard. Plus, her best friend is returning to the states.  Though Maggie is trying to fill her time writing a French cookbook with a twist, she's just finding that to be one more annoying part of her dull and duller days. Besides that,  she can't cook and her chef husband isn't cooperating or collaborating as she had wished . Then people start [...]


    • Increasingly unlikable heroineI got a couple of the books in this series for free, and as I enjoyed the setting, continued to read it. I do like reading series, getting to know characters better with each sequel. The problem with this series, beyond the improbable plot details which I expect in an amateur sleuth cozy mystery is that the "heroine" is almost completely self-absorbed, petulant, lazy and absurdly smug and condescending, particularly given that she doesn't seem to do much besides p [...]


    • I received this book free from the author in return for an honest review. When I began reading this book I didn't know that it is the third book in a series. Fortunately, the author gives enough background that I was comfortable with the relationships yet she did not provide spoilers. The main character is a creative writer living with her new husband in rural France. She hasn't found her place yet, and is somewhat homesick for the US. She has just begun to expand her circle of friends when one [...]


    • Thanks Susan I received my copy in the mail today. I am going to take it on my trip to read. Looking forward to reading it.I had entered to win a copy but I hadn't and the author was nice enough to send me a copy of the book if I would review it. It is a nice cozy mystery. A good beach read. it had lots of twists and turns and I didn't know who the murderer was until the end of the book. I usually know before than. Maggie is trying to write a french cookbook but knows nothing about cooking and i [...]


    • Murder in Provence (Maggie Newberry Mysteries) (Kindle Edition) by Susan Kiernan-LewisI enjoyed this book which is woven around murder, mystery, romance, and intrigue. Maggie (Newberry) Dernier, who is a would be cookbook author, becomes an amateur slueth in her quest to find the answers to the riddle that runs the plot the plot of the book. This book was very descriptive of the area in which it is set and the characters were engaging. There were several twists and turns in the story line, and a [...]


    • I didn't realise this was book three when I downloaded it.Unfortunately it was such a struggle to enjoy and read because it contained typos, missing words, extra words and the wrong words used i.e. marker instead of market. The three female characters all have similar names, Maggie, Marie and Magdalene which I found quite confusing. The plot jumps around so much that you are not sure where or when you are in the story line. The plot is rather unbelievable as are the characters. Maggie is married [...]
