Favorite genres are traditional mystery, police procedurals, espionage, Eurocrime, literary fiction and nonfiction history, especially WW2 and Cold War. I write about crime fiction at Read Me Deadly (www.readmedeadly.com)
This short novel tells the unusual love story of Laure and Laurent, a couple of Parisians no longer in the flush of youth. I know, “Laure and Laurent,” sounds a little too precious, but don’t worry. This is a French novel––never too sweet; just a small, delicious mouthful of a novel.
You can easily knock this off in an afternoon or evening, and it won’t haunt your memory, but I can say it should be a very pleasant afternoon or evening, leaving an afterglow for the rest of the day, anyway.
