A quick historical cozy mystery with beautifully written descriptions of life in Paris. This is my assumption, of course, being from Michigan and never have been to Paris. But, it sounded authentic and realistic and that was good enough for me.

I enjoyed this as much as the first. There's something easy about imagining Julia Child nosing into murder with her bestie Tabitha Knight as post war Paris comes back to life. Their shopping trips to the market every day for fresh ingredients lead to an interesting tour of the catacombs with a mushroom grower. The Cordon Bleu, where Julia attends class, also hosts cooking demonstrations and it's here the two witness a chef being poisoned after drinking a rare wine, one that was among many hidden from the Boche during the war. When another chef is also attacked in the same way, the two can't help but be involved. There are many secrets that come to light from the war years, which makes the adventure all the more interesting.… (lisätietoja)

A Murder Most French by Colleen Cambridge
2nd book in the An American in Paris mystery series. Historical cozy mystery with Julia Child as a secondary character.
Postwar Paris is surging back to life, and its citizens are seizing every opportunity to raise a glass or share a delicious meal. The Cordon Bleu cooking school often holds open demonstrations, where the public can see its master chefs at work. One night when Tabitha Knight and Julia Child are in attendance, a premier bottle of wine, that was hidden from German forces, is opened and the chef begins the tasting. He promptly drops dead. It’s the first in a frightening string of poisonings and Tabitha, and occasionally Julia, are ready to help the inspector in finding clues. Tabitha has the experience since this is not her first murder scene.

Tabitha is exceptionally good at finding and remembering scenes and clues. A little too good per the inspector. But he can’t deny she has a skill. Even if he doesn’t want her in the middle or a murder scene.
Intriguing setup and roll out of the mystery and clues. Interesting historical facts surrounding the mystery. First me, the fun is listening to the Julia Child actor’s voice and imagining the times and how someone might benefit from her cooking skills.
I don’t cook. Have no desire, skill or interest, but can imagine the wondrous benefits of knowing a Cordon Bleu chef. Tracking down clues for a mystery, I’ll leave to the books as well.
The mystery was good but easily guessed. The relationships are getting deeper in this second book. I picked up the first for the uniqueness of the setting. Who can resist Julia? But you should know that Julia is very much a secondary character and it’s Tabitha that is in the middle of the meddling. Excuse me, the investigating. 🙂

Tabitha Knight is a young American ex-pat living with her grandfather and Uncle in Paris. Their neighbor, Julia Child, is teaching Tabitha to cook. The two discover a body in the basement of Julia's building and Tabitha recognizing the woman as someone who was in Julia's apartment the previous night with a group from the theater Dort manages. The discovery of Julia's knife indicates the killer was one of the after show party attendees. And, Tabitha's name and contact info is found on the body putting the two of them in the middle of the investigation.

As Tabitha gives in to her curiosity, she finds herself in growing danger when a car runs her off the road. As she continues to help at the theater more clues emerge if she can remain alive long enough to explain them the the police inspector investigating the murder.

The concept and time frame are effective, but the writing and dialog is a bit clunky at points.
