Lost in France

I just finished the arc for Maxine Kenneth's Paris to Die For (published July 28th) it's pitched as Charade meets James Bond which is fairly accurate but the protagonist is the interesting point for me, Jacqueline Lee Bouvier.  The fiction is wound around actual events in Jackie's life and uses a mix of real and imagined characters and it is set in a rich vein of American history.

Sticking with the French theme, I'm currently halfway through The Grave Gourmet by Alexander Campion, the start of a new culinary mystery series set in Paris.  It features a glamourous police lieutenant and her restaurant critic husband, and the jacket blurb and first chapter was enough to make me buy it.
