It's your name, but French! (At least, I think that's the joke.) Mara->Marie, Fox->Reynard  

 

According to wikipedia, the french word for fox, renard, comes from Reynard the Fox, a popular character in medieval fables. 

 

I only knew this from watching Bosch a few weeks ago. The bad guy from Season one named himself after Reynard the Fox from old French stories.

@halo0073 I watch Bosch too, and have most/all of M Connelly’s books in the Bosch series;   I didn’t get a chance to play the French Connection game here until the answers were already out there. 

 

But, even though I strongly suspected that Marie Reynard was not indeed visiting from Paris, part of me really hoped she was, and she planned to stay and help Mara.

You're all way smarter than me. 

 

Woosh!

"What was that?" says me.

Something just flew right over my head, happens all the time.

I have read most of Michael Connelly's books too!  He's so consistently excellent, it's so impressive.  And thanks for that cute stuff at the end there. ❤️

Stacy! You did not! Go read what you wrote again, and what I replied. You may have thought it, but you didn't post it.

"Marie Reynard " - I see what you did there.

Oh!  I thought this was Mara’s French alter ego, then I really started thinking that she did have a French cousin helping out on this release due to time constraints. The first day I was on Google translator trying to figure out the titles, but I never thought to translate the “cousin’s” name.

You're doing better than me. I only knew from the Wikipedia page. I just happened to have looked at it a month or two ago! I don't even remember how I got there.

I didn't notice until she said there were more jokes. Then I saw the "Marie" and went, "Wait a minute!"

Basier la Grenouille = kiss the frog 

Cute play on words there :)

 

Just figured out the other meaning for basier :lol:

For anyone else who is wondering, this is buried in the description for Coquin!  I was like "what are we talking about?????" :P  I read, but it doesn't all sink in at once!

Isn’t that always the way with random Wikipedia visits? LMAO. For me anyway
