Escape to fabulous France this winter with TV favourite Sally Lindsay, who not only stars as the eponymous lead, but also created and co-wrote The Madame Blanc Mysteries, a charming and entertaining new series that’s set to delight on DVD on 13 December 2021 following its TV debut on Channel 5. We have four copies of this Christmas charmer up for grabs, courtesy of Acorn Media International. It will also be available on digital.
When Mancunian Antiques dealer, Jean White’s husband, Rory, is killed in a car crash on the way back from a business trip in France, life as she knows it, is changed forever. Not only has she lost her husband, but she soon discovers that he was living a double life and has blown all their money – leaving her destitute and penniless.
With everything snatched from her, Jean reluctantly relocates to their one remaining asset – a cottage in French antiques hotspot, Sainte Victoire, where she begins to investigate Rory’s mysterious death. But Jean quickly learns that the circumstances surrounding the accident are more suspicious than they first appeared. When a series of antiques-related mysteries erupt around the village Jean gets caught up in Sherlockian shenanigans – but can she solve the case close to her heart?
Historical artefacts, happy-go-lucky characters, and a loveable lead: The Madame Blanc Mysteries is the modern murder-mystery with heart and humour we’ve all been waiting for.
