I was not thrilled with books 3 and 4 in the series, but this story was probably the best so far. I enjoy Bruno for his love of simple pleasures (food, wine, beauty, animals). He is the perfect Chief of Police for a small country town in France. I have learned so much French history and geography as he covers subjects that are not just about the World Wars or Impressionism.
The cases, quirky characters, and place all make for great detective stories with lots of warmth and charm with some danger thrown in now and then. These stories are comparable, but not as good as, the Louise Penny series set in Three Pines, Quebec. To be honest, the cases are not hard to solve, but an occasional twist is thrown in that I am not expecting. I have seen much improvement to the story structure with this fifth book.
I enjoy the narrator as he adds more charm to the stories. I have already loaded Book 6 and am ready to go.
