Would You Rather... 
with M.L. Longworth 

Chips, chocolate or cheese?

Cheese. Tough call as I love salty foods, especially chips, but living in France for so long I have to say cheese. Especially chevre (goat cheese).

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw?

Bridget Jones. I don’t know who Becky Bloomwood is, and Carrie wasn’t my favorite Sex and the City character. Miranda was, and Samantha.

Wine, beer or vodka?

Wine. No contest.

Camping or spa vacation?

Neither. I hate camping and spas bore me to tears. I like travelling to big cities and visiting museums, walking neighborhoods, and eating the local foods.

Water or mountains?

Water, especially the Mediterranean.

Zombies or vampires?


Dogs or cats?


Coke or Pepsi?

Neither. YUK.

Coffee or tea?

Coffee. Illy. 

Dine out or take away?

Dine out.

High heels, sneakers or flip flops?

High heels, although I’m wearing my bright green sneakers more and more when walking in Paris.

Physical Book or ebook?

Physical book.

Paperback or Hardcover?

Paperback for the lightness factor, but I love, and buy, beautiful hardback editions of my favorite books.

Pen or pencil?

Pencil. For corrections.

Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad?

Downton Abbey.

Drama or comedy?


Twilight or Hunger Games?


Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick?


Facebook or Twiter?


Plot your entire novel or fly by the seat of your pants?

Plot it out first.

Murder on the Ile Sordou 

Maxime and Catherine Le Bon have spent their life savings restoring the Locanda, which lies in an archipelago of glittering islands off the coast of Marseille. To celebrate the grand opening, a motley crew of privileged guests join Verlaque and Bonnet: Marine’s best friend, the free-spirited Sylvie; a pompous fading film star and his much-younger wife and her disgruntled son; an eccentric poet; a pair of American tourists; and a querulous Parisian couple. The murder of one of the guests casts a shadow over everyone’s vacation, and Verlaque and Bonnet are once again called to investigate. But things go from bad to worse when a violent storm cuts off all communication with the mainland. Will the killer strike again?
