I enjoyed this book a lot and look forward to reading more from the series. That's right, it's a series. I can't believe how many times I find myself in the middle of a series without having read any of the earlier books. That's not always a bad thing. Reading a mystery out of order can create it's own experience - the reader gets to go back and discover the motivations behind the main character.
Murder Below Montparnasse is book 12 in the series. There were times I was a little confused and that was probably because I wasn't familiar with the characters and some of the backplot. The sprinkling of French words also added to my confusion but I wouldn't want those left out.
In spite of that, it was a really good book and a good mystery that revolves around a painting by a famous French artist that has gone missing. I liked the main character, Aimee Leduc, and her two colleagues in her detective agency. I have already made a list of the books in the series, in order, so I can read more.
This book will be released on March 5.
Are you familiar with this series featuring Aimee Leduc? Do you have a favorite? At this point I'm not worried about reading them in order, but I would like to read more.
