It's love at first sight when British divorcée Penelope Kite sees the stone farmhouse tucked high in the hills above the Luberon valley, and she impulsively buys the property and moves to St. Merlot. But Penelope's daydreams of life in Provence didn't include finding a corpse floating face down in her swimming pool. Having worked in a forensics office, though, Penelope is prepared for her first murder investigation. To find answers, she must carefully navigate between her enviably chic estate agent, the disdainful chief of police, and the handsome mayor—even as she finds herself tempted by all the delicacies the region has to offer. Thank goodness her old friend Frankie is just a flight away—and that Penelope is not quite as naïve as her new neighbors in St. Merlot believe.
