An American in Paris Mysteries

I have been wanting to write a mystery centering around a “woman of a certain age” since the day I turned sixty! Claire Baskerville is suddenly widowed and finds herself living in Paris where the dead bodies fall out of the ancient elevator shafts and antiquated wardrobes just enough to keep her and her burgeoning private eye business for the ex-pat community very busy.

A tad darker than the other mysteries, this is Paris today and a woman who knows herself and is still open to discovering the world around her.

Book 1, Dèjá Dead

Book 2, Death by Cliché

Book 3, Dying to be French 

Book 4, Ménage à Murder 

Book 5, Killing It in Paris  

Book 6, Deadly Faux Pas  

Book 7, Murder Flambé (Publishes October 13, 2021)


And no, I’m not stopping at 7. Claire’s adventures have been loosely outlined for another three books past Book 7 AT LEAST. I love this series and don’t see myself stopping writing it any time soon.
