I am doing book research (really) in and around Bordeaux, the Dordogne and the Lot. Dodging the Tour de France today. First stop, Chateau Lamothe, where I have the most adorable room!

I’m having good luck with Internet so far, so I’ve been posting pics on Facebook and Picasa.

No, I’m not abandoning the Lakeshore Chronicles! But this is a non-Lakeshore novel about hidden treasure, food and wine. 🙂
