In person, Denoyer maintains his apathy upon hearing the details of Kelly's story. Andre returns to the States, unsure how to read the French magnate's the reaction. There's lots of travel, lots of opulence, lots of opportunities for Mayle to describe Paris and Provence, and all the yummies you'll find in both places. Who can worry about a mystery when the food's so delectable?

More information about this seller Contact this seller. Never used!. Seller Inventory P A book in which the plot strolls along at its own pace and still manages to keep you interested.

And where the descriptions of exotic places don't really annoy me they normally do. Mayle's effortless sense of humor kept me interested throughout and the lack of a what-happens-next kind of plot never bothered me. You know right from the beginning who the bad guys are and you know that the world's going to be a happy place at the end of the story, but you just want to read it all the way through anyway.
Another thing I loved about this book is that even though the story is set in France and many of the characters are French, Mayle avoids using too many French words in the book. A mistake that many authors make is that they assume that their readers can somehow understand half a dozen European languages, thereby leaving us poor readers with little option but to either skip those lines or look up a dictionary to translate the sentences.
But this book hardly ever challenges my French vocabulary, which consists of two words -- bonjour and au revoir both of which I can't pronounce.
Even when he does use a French word or phrase, Mayle finds a way to translate it without affecting the flow of the story.
