From fog-bound London to sun-drenched France…

1947. Exasperated by her tyrannical family, Vicky escapes from rationing and austerity Britain and flees to the south of France.
But she’s not there just for the glorious food, wine and sunshine: she has an inheritance to claim, and a mystery to solve.
Can she find her wartime husband, Philippe d’Icère? Is he alive or dead? A hero or a traitor?  An imposter, or a true Frenchman?
Do the answers lie in the Languedoc village of St Aphrodise, where danger lurks in the ancient streets?
How can she be sure who’s a loyal friend and who a bitter enemy?
Vicky seems destined to fail—or will she, in the end, find out the truth about Philippe?

    A Very Tangled WebI have read many of Elizabeth Edmondson' s books and this one was quite enjoyable. It kept me guessing through out most of the book. Vichey's search for Philippe is filled with many ...

    The late author produced a series of very enjoyable romance-mystery-thriller novels, all set in the immediate post-World War II period in Britain -- though it somewhat pains me to think of a story set...

    This is the third novel by Edmondson that I read and it is obvious that they all follow more or less the same pattern. Placed in an attractive setting (a picturesque Italian village, a romantic little...

    Similar but yet so different Rather a blunt ending , however a book that kept me intrigued until the end. This was similar format to Ms Edmonsons international books but yet very different. ...
