With a nose for good wine and bad lies, Quant is off to France on his first big case. From the smudgy streets of Paris, he cajoles and sleuths his way to the pastel-colored promenade of Sanary-sur-Mer.Back in Saskatoon, Quant comes face-to-face with a client who may be the bad guy, a quarry who turns up in the most unexpected place, and a cast of colorful suspects: the vile sister, the best friend, the colleague, the ex-lover, the lawyer, the priest, the snoopy neighbor are they involved? Or is someone else lurking in the shadows? As he works through his case, Quant juggles his detective gig with the responsibilities of a personal life full of captivating personalities.Taking a cue from the style and humor of Robert B. Parker, and evoking Armistead Maupin with his wit and warmth, Anthony Bidulka's Amuse Bouche is a rich, saucy, and engaging read.

A good read -lots of action and strong character development-was the last section really vital to the story line?

Bidulka's Russel Quant is a likeable main character in this series of eight (so far) mystery novels. In addition, there's an array of interesting supporting characters appearing in each novel and most of them stand out.

Interesting first book. I found the sex scenes a little too added on. I did like that the detective usually did cases like the missing casserole dish.
