Miss Vulpe – Book Description

I’m working on an updated book description of The Adventures of Miss Vulpe, one that will attract the right kind of readers and give them a good idea of what to expect, while obviously not giving too much away.

What do y’all think of the following?

Ana Petrescu (a.k.a. Miss Vulpe) is a troubled teenager determined to solve the mystery of her parents’ double suicide. Escaping the scrutiny of her legal guardian and the unwanted interference of several therapists, she looks up people from her mother’s past. Her sleuthing requires her to lie about her identity, her age, and her lack of experience with men. While impersonating Miss Vulpe is more fun than going to school, there’s bound to be trouble and heartache when her web of lies unravels.

Perfect for fans of Françoise Sagan, this international mystery novel full of noir humor will keep you on the edge of your seat while making you both cringe and laugh. Not advisable for readers easily shocked or offended, and definitely intended for a mature audience. The behaviors displayed in this story are by no means recommended or sanctioned by the author.

While blending the disturbing with the amusing in a most irreverent way, the story takes readers to various locations, from Bucharest to the swamps of Louisiana with stops in Ibiza, Madrid, Switzerland, and then some. Prepare for a roller coaster ride of sensual writing and dark revelations.
