Roxanne shared a couple of photos with us. She took these photos while doing research in Provence. The hilltop town in Murder Undetected is fictional, but it resembles these photos. They are stunning! And I can already see Brittany Thornton looking out over the town and strolling through the cobblestone streets wearing that big floppy hat on the cover.

About the Book

Murder Undetected

This fast-paced mystery spans the globe with suspense, action, and thrills. Newly minted psychologist Brittany Thornton thinks she has her life all dialed in, but when her husband is arrested for fraud and the FBI seizes all her assets, she loses everything, including her confidence.

Troubles follow her from Seattle to a village in the south of France, where the town’s darling is getting away with murder, and only Brittany suspects her. Will she trust her instincts and put herself in danger to stop her?

Peek between the pages

“The rumor flying around Chevalier is that you tried to blackmail Viane. I know you’re a little crazy.” Arielle winked. “But not that nuts.”

“Actually, I did.”

Arielle’s eyebrows shot up. “Seriously?”

“Seriously. I hoped if I could get hush money from her it would be tantamount to an admission of guilt, something I could take to the gendarmes.”

“That’s brilliant. So, now the whole town thinks you pushed her down the stairs because she refused to pay you.”

“They’re wrong. I didn’t push her. I kicked her.”

“Brittany Ann Thornton, where are your manners?”
