When a Riviera socialite's diamonds are stolen--the latest in a string of seemingly unconnected, but ever more audacious, jewelry heists across France--Elena flies in to investigate the insurance claim. It's a trip she's more than happy to make, as it gives her a chance to meet up with old friends in Marseilles--and, particularly, with Sam. Once reunited, she and Sam buy the local cottage they've had their eyes on, but Sam isn't entirely distracted by domestic matters. In the pattern of these "perfect crime" heists he's beginning to see a master at work, and he's quickly determined to connect and solve the cases. But as he and Elena dig deeper, they begin to realize just how much is connected...and how dangerous it may be to pursue the whole truth.

I found this basically a rehash of
The Vintage Caper, just different item stolen but basically eating and drinking through to solving the crime. Yes, I love the descriptions of food and wine, but even that gets a little overdone after several of these caper novels.

Fun, breezy mystery not requiring much thought, but allowing those of us without money to see the lifestyle of the wealthy in the French Riviera. It’s also a book not to read if you are hungry. The descriptions of the French cooking and the resulting meals are among the best aspects of this beach read.

Full of Provençal Riviera bling: beautiful women, big houses, glossy magazine shoots, classy hotels, flashy jewelry and of course, food and wine. More of a food blog than a mystery. Storyline a bit bland, even for Mayle.
