"Charming" --The New York Times Book Review
"The Mystery of the Lost Cézanne is an enjoyable, civilised read, with likeable characters, a glorious setting and some beautiful descriptions of the artist, his work and the unique character of his subject." --Promoting Crime Fiction
"A splendid read" --Mystery Scene Magazine
"This is an easy to read, gentle mystery set in the South of France. The area, as well as its food and drink is vividly described. Though there is a murder at the heart of the story, as the title suggests it's really about the missing painting, and will particularly appeal to mystery-lovers with an interest in art history." --The Bookbag

Longworth presents the reader with multiple mysteries this time. Who killed Rene Rouquet is, of course, the most immediate question. Did he find an authentic and unknown Cezanne painting? If it is authentic, who is the woman depicted, smiling and happy, unlike most of his portrait subjects. And in the background, what is bothering Marine, making her a bit short with Antoine, the man she loves dearly.
Other continuing characters in their lives make an appearance. Sylvie, Marine's Bohemian friend. Her mother and father, devoted to each other. Antoine's father, with his mother in the hospital, is up to his old tricks. And Paulik and Schoelcher, colleagues and friends. Each visit to Aix-en-Provence is exciting and informative. I hope for more in the future.
M.L. Longworth has created characters that are ALMOST as enchanting and beguiling as the scenery in which she places them.
As a Francophile I am slightly biased. if I can't be based in France reading one of these is the next best thing!
The only complaint I have is that they are so well written, so smooth, and so absorbing, that I read them so quickly. They are over before I know it! That's not to say that they each aren't the exact perfect length to keep you interested, satisfied, and wanting more!
I hope Ms. Longworth continues to write this series for many years to come.
