#AudiobookReview – The Riviera Affair by J. New #TheRivieraAffair #TantorMedia

L1834_RivieraAffair-238x238From Goodreads:The glamour of the French Riviera quickly turns sour as Ella is caught up in an investigation which will have repercussions on both sides of the channel. But has she finally met her match?
When her mother telephones from France with news of her imminent arrest, Ella along with her aunt and an eccentric friend rush to her aid. But what starts as a simple disappearance quickly turns to murder and Ella finds herself embroiled in a mystery which is far more complex than she’d anticipated.
In a foreign land where she doesn’t speak the language, has no jurisdiction and doesn’t know who to trust, Ella has to call upon all her usual skills and devise new ones in order to flush out the adversary in their midst.
But will she be in time to save the life of the man she came to find?
‘The Riviera Affair’ is set in 1930’s England, and is the fourth of The Yellow Cottage Vintage Mystery series.”

My Review

This was another fun cosy mystery, part 4 of the The Yellow Cottage Vintage Mystery Series.

I loved catching up with Ella, Aunt Margaret and Pierre the artist as they rushed to the French Riviera in answer to a distressing phone call from Ella’s mother.

All is not as it seems when Ella looks into the disappearance of her mother’s friend Colonel Summerfield. The local police aren’t interested as they think it’s a relationship problem and Ella’s mother thinks she’s be suspected of wrong doing as she was the last one to see him alive. What ensues is a fun story full of mayhem, murder, mystery, disguises and a rather charming French policeman. Phantom, Ella’s gorgeous black cat also turns up a few times to help with the case, at just the right moment.

Once again I’m so pleased that I listened to this and can’t wait for the next one in the series. What will Ella get up to next I wonder?

Jilly Bond’s narration was absolutely perfect for this gentle mystery, and I’m in awe of the way she portrayed all the different French and English characters.

I definitely recommend this series if you enjoy cosy mysteries set in the 1930s.

Thanks so much to Hope Roy at Tantor Media for my digital copy.
