Read full description of the books Hotel Pastis: A Novel of Provence:Picked this up for a $1 and read it on the plane - quick and fun. You can tell the author was an ad man (like the main character) as he provides a little too much detail about the main character and not enough about some of the other major characters - such as the girlfriend and the butler - (yes, there's a butler). The crime mystery takes up all of about 35 pages of the 380+ total - but its a fun addition (not the main story) and I have to admit that I did not guess the ending. I do have to warn you - this book will move you to take long lesiurely, multi-course lunches and consider quitting your job. Not the best option for a vacation book - way too tempting. I may be doomed - my mother-in-law saw me reading this and gave me three more Mayle books to read! Oh well, bon appetit!
