I will definitely read the next book in the series.

Death in Brittany is a charming but slow-moving cozy mystery with few surprises. However, mystery readers who enjoy discovering various slices of historical, literary, or geographic knowledge will be rewarded with details about the Pont-Aven School of Art which began in the Brittany region of France and the inspiring beauty of landscape there. The contemplative tone makes this a solid choice for a bedtime read.
