COYOTE IN PROVENCE (A Cozy Mystery)

What happens when the very beautiful and sexy Maria Brooks, now Elena Johnson, a woman hiding out in Provence, France, from the California legal authorities, meets Jordan Kramer, a handsome art theft detective from Los Angeles?

He’s looking for stolen California paintings reportedly for sale in Provence. She’s trying to stay under the radar. Both share a love of food and wine. Will Jordan find Pierre, the French chef who’s suspected of being the art theft? And who are those young Afghan girls hiding out in his parents’ home?

If you liked Dianne Harman’s award-winning novel, Blue Coyote Motel, you don’t want to miss Coyote in Provence. Great mystery, wine, food, and art in romantic Provence.

Blue Coyote Motel, the first book in the Coyote Series, was a quarter finalist in Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Award contest, a Goodreads Psychological Thriller Book of the Month, and an e-thriller Book of the Month. Coyote in Provence continues the story of Maria, the captivating character in the trilogy.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

A light read with deep undercurrents running throughout, it will really open your eyes to a number of things that normally don’t see the light of the day. A wonderful book.

*******

The lead character attracts an eventful life and this of course makes for interesting reading. The storyline was clever and that kept me interested throughout. No complaints. Well worth the read.

*******

This is a finely-crafted and deeply imagined novel that not only held my interest, but I consumed it in two sittings. Diane Harman knows how to write a compelling tale with characters about whom you care and with plot twists that will cause your stomach to clench. A well-deserved five-stars to a book from a writer who I know will keep them coming.

*******

No kidding, before you get to the last page you’ll be fighting the urge to check prices and flights to make you great escape to…Provence.

*******

Dianne’s settings and writing really shine; as a reader, her descriptions of food were mouth-watering. The interplay between the protags is a lot of fun, too. I recommend this for when you just need a taste of summer.

About The Author

Dianne Harman draws her stories and characters from a diverse business and personal background. She owned a national antique and art appraisal business for many years, left that industry and opened two yoga centers where she taught yoga and certified yoga instructors. She has traveled extensively throughout the world, most recently dividing her time between Huntington Beach, California and Sacramento, California, where her husband was a Senator. An avid reader, Dianne brings the richness of her life experiences to her novels, Blue Coyote Motel, Tea Party Teddy, and Coyote in Provence.

An Award Winning Bestseller, Blue Coyote Motel was selected as a quarter finalist in Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Award contest, Goodreads Psychological Thriller of the Month Book, and e-thriller Book of the Month.

Blue Coyote Motel is a suspenseful love story which begins in the barrios of Southern California and spans the globe in such diverse locations as Provence, South America, and the Himalayas. The beautiful Latina, Maria, and her husband, Jeffrey, a scientist fired from a prestigious laboratory, struggle to build a new life in a remote Southern California desert area as owners of the motel.

Along with the anti-aging hormone, Jeffrey invents a “feel-good” wonder drug to help Maria with her depression. As Jeffrey becomes insane, he begins to experiment with the wonder drug. Six wayward travelers, including an alcoholic priest, a couple who own gold mines in Brazil, a depressed widow, a struggling salesman, and a Native American pediatrician, find themselves spending the night at the small motel. The next morning they wake up feeling better than ever. Has Jeffrey’s miracle drug delivered? Or is the nightmare of addiction only beginning?

The sequel to Blue Coyote Motel, Coyote in Provence, was recently published. It continues the story of the very beautiful and sexy Maria Brooks, now Elena Johnson, hiding out in Provence, France, from the California legal authorities. She meets and falls in love with Jordan Kramer, a handsome art theft detective from Los Angeles.

He’s looking for stolen California paintings reportedly for sale in Provence. She’s trying to stay under the radar. Both share a love of food and wine. Will Jordan find Pierre, the French chef who’s suspected of being the art theft? And who are those young Afghan girls hiding out in his parents’ home? Great food, art, and Romantic Suspense at its best!

Her second novel, Tea Party Teddy, is a multicultural romance set against the political background of California. It’s the story of Nina, whose husband succumbs to the power of his office. Bigoted and biased, the ultimate irony occurs when she becomes romantically involved with the founder of the Republicans for Latinos, and in the process, discovers herself.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Dianne Harman and ENT appreciate it.
