Bastille Day: French Crime Fiction Links

Today is Bastille Day, and I suggest you read a mystery set in France. Mystery Readers Journal Volume 16:2 focused on Mysteries set in France. Since this issue was published so many mysteries have appeared in France and so many mysteries have been set there, so it's time for another issue. In 2012 we'll publish another issue. Need some chocolate with your reading today, make a souffle. Check out my Bastille Day Chocolate Souffle recipes on

Thanks for the great links! Now i'll celebrate with a treat from one of those little black and white stores with the grandmotherly logo and settle in with an early Maigret...
