I’m going into this with fear and trembling, and lots of conflicting feelings:
- I really didn’t like much all the Hemingway’s books I had to read at school
- I’m ashamed that I have not read it yet, seeing the setting!
- So I’m relieved I FINALLY HAVE to read it
- Because of the setting, I hope it will be good
- BUT some Goodreads reviewers who have a love/hate relationship with the author seem to imply it’s really not worth my time…
I am curious. What do YOU think?
I have until end of January to read and review it.
I posted my review on January 18

The Song Peddler Of The Pont Neuf
September 4, 2018
at Settecento Press
I have been thoroughly enjoying Laura Lebow’s historical mysteries around the world of operas, see for instance Sent to the Devil. Then she got the great idea to start a new series set in France! I’m thrilled to present to you The Song Peddler of the Pont Neuf and her private detective Paul Gastebois, in this first adventure set in Paris on the eve of the French Revolution.
Blame it on Paris

In this seventh installment of the Bennett Sisters Mysteries, Francie goes to Paris when she is accused of wrongdoing in her law office. She has received a mysterious letter connecting her ex-husband to an American student jailed for drug crimes. A chance encounter with an old boyfriend makes her spring in Paris more exciting but between the accusations against her at home, and the difficulty of doing any good in Paris, things are never smooth for a Bennett sister in France
