Death and Fromage (Hardback)Ian Moore (author)
The second instalment in the wonderfully escapist Follet Valley series delivers more satisfying Gallic cosy crime as B&B owner and reluctant sleuth Richard Ainsworth is drawn into the mysterious demise of a goat's cheese supplier.
Richard is a middle-aged Englishman who runs a B&B in the Vallee de Follet. Nothing ever happens to Richard, and really that's the way he likes it.
Until scandal erupts in the nearby town of Saint-Sauver when its famous restaurant is downgraded from three 'Michelin' stars to two. The restaurant is shamed, the town is in shock and the leading goat's cheese supplier drowns himself in one of his own pasteurisation tanks. Or does he?
Valerie d'Orcay, who staying at the B&B while house-hunting in the area, isn't convinced that it's a suicide. Despite his misgivings, Richard is drawn into Valerie's investigation, and finds himself becoming a major player.
