Murder in Passy~ Teaser Tuesday

Murder in Passy: An Aimee Leduc Investigation (Aimee Leduc Investigations)

Hosted by MizB at should be reading.

Here's how to play:

*Grab your current read,
*Open to a random page,
*Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page,
*Please no spoilers!
*Share the title and author.

Today's selection is from Cara Black's Murder in Passy (p. 154):

" Drumming her fingers on the round marble-top table of the cafe overlooking Place Victor Hugo, Aimee watched for Irati. The outdoor rattan cafe chairs gleamed like copper in the mid-afternoon light. Sparse brown-leafed plane trees encircled the spurting fountain. Opposite stood Saint Honore d'Eylau, a narrow toffee-colored stone church. Hemingway married one of his wives here, the story went. She had a clear view of the three streets Irati might use to return to her car. 
A traffic light shone green above the PIETONS ATTENTION sign as a rush of pedestrians crossed the zebra crosswalk. 
She answered her phone on the first ring.

Some days, I find it's better to get lost in Paris and someone else's fictional drama (and murder and mayhem). I love learning a little about how another author inserts place as character (especially when it's Paris!). And she's got one for just about every arrondissement. Try one. And...see you  in Paris. 


  1. Ohhhhh this is GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!! I need to pull out my novels here...but I was reading Jacques Prévert last night and it was sublime. LOVE! Anita

  2. I can start reading now since I got my reading glasses, yaaay. My daughter is a book lover - I wonder if she has heard of this one? I will let her know of it.
