The culinary mystery series that takes you on a tour of Paris! Includes 5 Special French Macaron Recipes.

French native Clémence Damour returns to Paris after traveling around the world for two years. She’s dog-sitting for her parents in the posh 16th arrondissement and overseeing the family patisserie, a famous franchise known for their delectable gourmet pastries and sweets in Paris and around the world.

To get off on the right foot with la gardienne, the caretaker of the apartment building, Clémence gives her a box of their luxury macarons. The next morning however, the half-eaten box of macarons is found near la gardienne’s dead body. An incompetent inspector accuses Clémence of being the killer, which prompts her to solve the case herself.

Join Clémence and her friends as they solve murder cases, bake macarons and other treats, and fall in love in The City of Lights.

Macaron Murder is the first book (25k novella) in a culinary cozy mystery series featuring delicious recipes of French pastries and desserts.
