    Description

    On the French Riviera during the Belle Epoque, a murder draws two women into the dangerous shadows of Europe’s privileged elite…

    One spring evening in 1884, beautiful young courtesan Lola Deslys discovers the lifeless body of a chambermaid hidden in the gardens of the Hôtel Beau Rivage in Cannes. Even more distressing is that Lola knows the girl well. When the inquiry into her murder fails to reveal a single substantial clue, Lola is persuaded by novelist Guy de Maupassant to delve into the case on her own.

    Eager to exert her independence and defy conventions, Lola agrees. But she needs help in her investigation, and there’s no better partner in her pursuit - however unlikely - than Miss Gabriella Fletcher, a highborn, well-educated, and currently disgraced English governess.

    To solve this dreadful crime, Lola and Miss Fletcher must navigate the depths of respectable society. But will their determination suffice in a city where fortune, secrets, men, and appearances reign supreme?

    a wonderful narration of a captivating story.

    I couldn't stop listening, to this audiobook. I'm not sure what I enjoyed more, the story or the narration.

    Yawn

    Hard to follow, kept waiting for it to get better but never did. Narrator did not help. Anticlimactic even the ending was boring. I would advise you to skip this one. There are better books out there!

    Good premise, disjointed delivery

    I liked the basic premise of the book, but felt it was delivered in a rather disjointed unfocused way. At times I wasn’t even sure what the main plot was, and none of the characters were relatable. I ended up skipping ahead quite a bit just to see how it ended before giving up.

    I did like the narrator, just wish she’d had better material to work with.

    zu lang

    ich hatte schon die Hälfte der Zeit gelauscht und titelgebende Brief war noch nicht aufgetaucht. Irgendwann war es mir einfach zu viel. So viel drumherum, viel zu viele innere Dialoge der Ich-Erzählerin - und am schlimmsten waren die englisch ausgesprochenen französischen Wörter. Zwischendrin war auch französisches Französisch, aber vor allem Uuhscheen ging mir auf die Nerven.
    Ich hab das Hörbuch gekauft, weil es bei den "gesprochen von Elizabeth Knowelden" aufgeführt war und die Beschreibung interessant klang. War aber leider alles andere als das.
    Definitiv absolut überhaupt nichts für mich!
