Book 59 – The Critic Peter May

Couldn’t resist and bought the second of the Enzo Books set in France in this Peter May series. Well I needed a book for the last day and ferry trip and one that could make me forget the pain of leaving the Hebrides.

This book was set in South West France. Another unsolved murder of an American wine critic. Though before long there are more murders can Enzo solve the crime before someone else ends up in a wine vault?

Glad to see all the main characters were back and Enzo is a character you love but despise often too. I’m learning that he’s not always a good judge of character. And if you go with his first views of people you are lead down the wrong route.

I loved Peter May’ s Lewis books in fact helped sell The Black House at Tarbert Visitor Information Centre yesterday. These are for me not quite as good but that’s to do with the setting more than anything. I love the Hebrides. But I also love Peter May’ s writing and as soon as I’m paid will be buying the third in the series.

Did it help the pain? No not quite. Tears flowed as MV Hebrides left Tarbert. But they were happy tears for a wonderful holiday. Will be back in 49 weeks. And once out on the Minch. Peter May and Enzo pulled me in as the best books always do.
