"Witty, feelgood fare." Daily Telegraph
The Madame Blanc Mysteries follows Jean (Sally Lindsay, Mount Pleasant), a renowned and respected antiques dealer running a successful business in leafy Cheshire with her husband, Rory (Peter Gaynor, Vikings). We meet Jean on a rainy morning in Manchester, overcome with grief as she learns that Rory has tragically died on his way home from their vintage treasure-trove stomping grounds in the South of France.
Things take a dark turn when Jean discovers that along with her husband, all of their money has disappeared, their shop has been re-mortgaged to the hilt and their assets pawned off. With the final thousands in their joint account ironically spent on Rory's funeral, Jean's life is set adrift... until her solicitor informs her of one thing her beloved did not sell: their cottage in French antiques hub, Sainte Victoire. And when Jean finds out that the lavish ring Rory was bringing back to her is nowhere to be found, she quickly realises something is amiss and does the first thing she can think of…Arriving in Sainte Victoire, will Jean get the answers she is searching for?
