SYNOPSIS

In this 5th installment of the Bennett Sisters Mysteries (beginning with Blackbird Fly), attorney Merle Bennett goes to France for an extended stay to drink in the essence of ‘la France Profonde’ and write her own novel.
But the countryside is not as tranquil as she hoped. A missing Frenchman, a sinister one, an elderly one, a thieving one, and a vandalizing one: all conspire to turn Merle’s sojourn of reflection into a nightmare of worry. Where is Pascal, her French boyfriend? Who is the man with the terrible scar? Why is someone spray-painting her little stone house in the Dordogne? And will her novel about the French Revolution – snippets of which are included – give her a soupçon of delight or a frisson of danger?
Works fine as a stand-alone

VIRTUAL BOOK TOUR QUOTATIONS

Shelf Rider

The Frenchman is as much a mystery novel as it is an exploration into the personal life of an author.
The Frenchman is a delightful stroll through a grove of mystery, with a woven path through a light French countenance that makes for a formidable leisure read.

The French Village Diaries

I started this book, it just got better and better.
We get a look behind the scenes of some of the best known wine areas in France.
This is a great mystery, set among the vineyards of France and pretty golden coloured villages of the Dordogne, perfect for a late summer getaway

Words And Peace

Wonderful mix of mystery and historical fiction in a picturesque French setting, with its charms and dangers.

Books Are Cool

It’s an absorbing story. It doesn’t give a twee, rose-coloured view of life in France, such as appears rather too frequently in cozies and chick lit, but presents it warts and all.
It’s all very human and convincing.

Reading To Unwind

I loved the author writing style.
The book is told from multiple POV’s which I really enjoyed. I love in a mystery when you can see different parts of the story all come together.
I liked that the series does follow a set of sisters and after reading this book I am intrigued to read the rest.

An Accidental Blog

This book was a pleasant escape with some mystery thrown in to the second half. Definitely worth a read.

Locks, Hooks and Books

I found The Frenchman to be a delightful, intriguing, and fun story.
It was quite interesting at how it all ended.
In my opinion, it is one other readers should add to their wish list. I look forward to more of this series and more books by Lise McClendon in the future.”

Denise

I enjoyed the mystery part of the story. The author brings to life the countryside of France.
