Read The Missing Masterpiece (Dorothy Martin, #18) Online Free -
Quelle horreur! A French holiday leads to disaster for American Anglophile Dorothy Martin in this engaging new cozy mystery.
When Dorothy Martin goes to France - alone because Alan is stuck back home in Sherebury with a broken ankle - she worries about her ability to get along in a language she barely speaks, and in a country she hasn't seen for over fifty years. But by the time Alan joins her a week later, Dorothy has found herself embroiled in one mystery after another: a woman drowning in quicksand; a man suffering a near-fatal fall in the abbey at Mont Saint Michel; and a missing American archaeologist - all seemingly connected to a monk named Abelard who has been dead for almost nine hundred years.
It isn't until another body is discovered that Dorothy's ability to 'think outside the box' finally unravels the threads of a despicable scheme.

This book was given to me in return for an unbiased review from NetGalley.
I have been long time fan of Jeanne Dams books and so I was excited to receive the latest release. The book, to me, felt a bit jumbled at the beginning... many different characters and events with out seeming to be related...

The description of Mont Saint Michel is reason enough to read this book. I may never get back to France to see it, but I had a tour through this book. Dorothy Martin goes there after her neighbor's successful sculpture showing. She is then embroiled in a mystery involving ancient parchments, terr...

I enjoyed reading this book, but.... I found that I was not going back to it because I was thinking about it. Something was missing to make it great. I enjoyed reading about all the food that was served but that wasn't part of the mystery.
