A charming tale from the Perigord heartland, featuring the internationally beloved Bruno, chief of police. A Vintage eBook Original Short. Between the seventeenth-century mairie and the stone bridge over the river that winds through town, the village of St. Denis hosts its weekly market, as well-stocked with local gossip as with fresh produce and pates. As summer blooms, the newest talk of the town is the rapport between Kati, a Swiss tourist, and Marcel, a popular stall owner whom Kati meets over his choice strawberries. None are happier than police chief Bruno to see Marcel, a young widower, interested in love again, but as his friend's romance deepens, Bruno senses trouble in the form of Marcel's meddlesome sister Nadette. Even as Kati begins to put down roots in St. Denis, vending her delicious baking in the market, it seems the overbearing Nadette will stop at nothing to make her feel unwelcome. When her schemes reach the limits of law, Bruno takes it upon himself to set things right.… (més)

This is a nice and typical Bruno short story. It’s a good sample for the early Bruno novels since it represents everything that’s good about the series:

Bruno is so wonderfully likeable, friendly and empathic.
The market obviously plays as an important role as in many of the novels.
There’s a small conflict but Bruno congenially solves it.

I felt right at home with this short story.

"A Market Tale" centers on the weekly market in St. Denis. If you're hungry before you start reading this story, be warned: once Walker begins describing all the food and drink to be found in the market, you'll have to stop reading and find something to eat as quickly as you can. There are two things I adore (yes, you heard me correctly-- adore!) about this series. One is Walker's loving depiction of the life, the culture, and the food of a small town in southwestern France, and you find that here in abundance.

The second thing I adore is the character of Bruno. In all of crime fiction, I do not think there is another police officer as intuitive, as observant of human nature, as Bruno. His skills are put to the test in this story as he comes to the rescue of true love-- Marcel and Kati-- by fighting a wicked witch-- Marcel's sister Nadette.

If, like me, you've fallen under the spell of this series, you must savor this story. If you've never indulged in the decadent richness of life in St. Denis, "A Market Tale" is the perfect bite-sized sample. Bon appétit! ( )
