Bluette Matthey is a 3rd generation Swiss American and an avid lover of European cultures. She has
decades of travel and writing experience. She is a keen reader of mysteries, especially those that
immerse the reader in the history, inhabitants, culture, and cuisine of new places. Her passion for travel, except airports (where she keeps a mystery to pass the time), is shared by her husband, who owned a tour outfitter business in Europe. Bluette particularly loves to explore regions that are not on the "15 days in Europe" itineraries. She also enjoys little-known discoveries, such as the London Walks, in well-known areas. She firmly believes that walking and hiking bring her closer to the real life of any locale. Bluette maintains a list of hikes and pilgrimages throughout Europe for future exploration. She lives in Charlotte, North Carolina Le Locle (NE) Switzerland, with her husband, faithful dog, and band of loving cats, and is moving to her maternal grandmother's village in Le Locle, Switzerland. She is author of the Hardy Durkin travel mysteries, which include Corsican Justice, Abruzzo Intrigue, and Black Forest Reckoning. Her next novel, Dalmatian Traffic*, which centers on smuggling in the Balkans, is going to print now to be followed by Engadine Aerie in 2016.
