Evidence begins to mount that your faithful correspondent has a gift of foresight… or a very steady finger on the pulse of society.
Remember how in "The Murderous Macaron", I had a Fragonard painting found in an attic and sold for 2 million euros? And then, a year later, newspapers reported how a family discovered that a painting in their living room was a Fragonard, and it was estimated at 1.5 - 2 million euros?
Well, folks, I did it again!
If you've read my novella "The Canceled Christmas", published a year ago, then this news bite from France may feel like a déjà-vu:
"A group of Parisians put up a Christmas tree in front of the city hall of the 12th arrondissement, after the mayor decided not to have one for environmental reasons."
I promise I had nothing to do with those people.
(But I can't promise they hadn't read my novella, hehehe!).
On December 30th Julie Cavallo's newest mystery, "The Perils of Paris," will hit the shelves.
Who knows which of its fictional events may come to pass next year...
