I got about 20 pages into this rubbish before giving up. In the first few pages the heroine is described as "elfin faced, heart shaped and perfect. Her mouth was small but sensuous and her large green eyes missed very little. ......an unconscious beauty". A few pages later "Her eyes were pale blue, set in a heart shaped face, lips full, the chin strong and resolute. It was a pretty face but not exceptionally so" . She also can't decide whether she is in Cannes or Nice. With such sloppy editing I could not be bothered to continue!

Oh dear, what a disappointment this turned out to be, even for a freebie! Clearly the author has never been anywhere near the Cote d'Azur. An American family whose estranged daughter's child has been kidnapped - although we don't find out how they knew of the child's existence in the first place - get a phone call out of the blue from an Englishman claiming he can get the child back. So Maggie just flies out to Nice from the USA all alone to meet a random man??? I don't think so. It gets worse. They snatch the kid back and bring it home to its grandparents. There is no more mention of the child for several chapters! Instead a lot of boring tosh about Maggie's dull business partner Gerry and his equally dull sounding wife Darla... A very flawed novel. Far too many pointless plot lines and loose ends that never get tidied. I couldn't finish it, didn't care in the end whodunnit or even why....

Was really looking forward to this as I enjoy books that are based in other countries, but this was a total disappointment. The story line, I thought, was so unbelievable and ridiculous. I was determined to finsh the book but did not enjoy it and couldn't wait until I got to the end. I won't be reading any more by this author.

Goodness me - I have had some very good reads from freebies but this is most certainly not one of them. I too gave up after about 30 pages in sheer frustration. Badly drawn characters and no attempt to drive any tension or plotting. Sorry but a very poor effort.

So is Maggie 34 or 32? Are her eyes green or blue? Did her sister die 3 or 6 months previously? Do they use francs or euros in France? Absolute pants...I gave up reading the story and just played "spot the mistakes".

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).

I was expecting a detective story based in France but the country barely got a mention. Most of the action took place in the U.S.A. and I didn't really care about any of the characters.

This book could have been good with a little care. Who has ever heard of anyone going to the Cote d'Azure and having boiled egg and soldiers for breakfast? Following it with a bucks fizz, all at a VERY early time in the morning? The grammar is not very good, and the same descriptive passages seem to be trotted out every few pages. The ambience of the South of France is nowhere to be felt, or seen. I 'bought' this because I love the area, and best of all it was free. I didn't finish the book. The book it self seems to be either love it or loathe it. As it was free, I've given it one star.
