A missing girl. An amateur sleuth. And a whole lot of croissants. Meet Molly Sutton, recently divorced and ready for a new life, who moves to the village of Castillac in France to open a B&B. She’s looking for peace, pastry, and beautiful gardens—an altogether slower life than the one she’d had in Boston. But you know what they say about the best intentions…. Molly has barely gotten over jet-lag when she hears about a local student’s disappearance. In between getting her ramshackle house in order and digging into French food, Molly ends up embroiled in the case, along with the gendarmes of Castillac. And unlike the Nancy Drews she loved as a child, this mystery is complex, stirring up emotions she thought had been put to rest and terrifying the beloved residents of her adopted village. The Third Girl is the first book of the Molly Sutton Mystery series. If you like engrossing cozy mysteries, real characters you'd want to get to know, and mouthwatering descriptions of scrumptious food, you'll love Nell Goddin's tale of murder and intrigue.
