I got the Kindle edition for nothing but was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the writing and the way the story kept me guessing till very near to the end. The American heroine, Maggie, is believable and gutsy. She starts by going to France to try to recover her sister's child who has been kidnapped by her French father. Oh, I thought, this is going to be drawn out - but no, she gets the child quite easily and returns to America with it. Quite a bit of the action, including two murders, then takes place in America. Later Maggie goes back to France to continue her search for the truth, about her sister's child and about the murders. The action concludes in a somewhat nail-biting fashion back in America. There's romance in there too, but it doesn't detract from the story and, in fact, adds to it. It's certainly a good read and the Kindle edition is well laid out and suffers from very few typos. The only thing that puzzled me was the title, as there was no murder on the Cote d'Azure (unless there's one in Atlanta USA).
