 Bluette Matthey






The central character in all the mysteries is Hardy Durkin, a twenty-seven-year old American with dual US and German citizenship, who is a hiking tour outfitter specializing in European treks. Considerable attention is paid to the history, culture, cuisine and character of the milieu and its inhabitants. Hopefully, the novels provide a sensory experience of the region to the reader. If I had to categorize the books I would call them cozy travel mysteries.

About Bluette Matthey

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 Le Locle, Switzerland, with her husband and band of loving cats.

Her next novel, Engadine Aerie, due out shortly, is set in the Engadine Valley, Switzerland.
