SYNOPSIS

Facing a crossroads– both career and personal– the youngest of the five Bennett Sisters, Elise, does what she does best: she runs away to think. This time she runs to a farm in Provence that produces heaven-scented lavender for oils. The area is famous for the beautiful purple flower, the symbol of this southern region of France. Her sisters are stumped. Elise never seemed like the farming type, or even gardening, for that matter. But she’s signed up for a farm stay vacation, an idea she got from an unlikely source, the trophy wife of one of her law partners.

When she arrives, courtesy her older sister Merle who drives her to the Luberon from the Dordogne, she discovers she is the only guest at the picturesque family farm who is not a college student. The rest are all doing a French language exchange program and are 20 years younger than Elise, leaving her feeling like an outsider and wondering about her life choices. Not only is her judgment in men and careers awful, but she can’t even plan a decent vacation.

Meanwhile in the Dordogne, Merle’s niece, Willow, arrives for some R&R before she starts law school. But she brings a few surprises with her, a boyfriend plus Elise’s fiancé. Or is it ex-fiancé? It will take several sisters– and of course Pascal– to unravel the facts as all descend on southern France for July in the heat and lavender.

Suspense, romance, intrigue, and humor as the summer heats up for the Bennett Sisters again. Another delicious adventure in international travel and cozy mystery as the Bennett Sisters fight their way to truth, justice, and a perhaps a summer fling, deep in Provence. A summer fling in France never hurt anyone, now did it?

Works fine as a stand-alone

VIRTUAL BOOK TOUR QUOTATIONS

I really enjoyed this book, the characters are now like old friends.
It was an easy book to get immersed in, with an intriguing mystery to be solved, a bit of romance and some family drama, as well as fantastic locations to visit. Lise brings France to life once more.
If you haven’t yet discovered Merle, Pascal and the exciting situations they seem to find themselves in, don’t delay, start today.

An Accidental Blog

If the beauty of the landscape, the allure of the French language, and a bit of international romance weren’t enough to pull you, there’s a mystery as well that the sisters must extricate themselves from.
If you’re looking for a fun trip when you can’t go anywhere, pick up Lost in Lavender.

Locks, Hooks and Books

I enjoyed the setting, the mystery, and the suspense. I found the whole story fun, entertaining and one that I could not put down until I had the whole book read in one sitting. From start to finish, it was pure delightful.

Boys’ Mom Reads!

The story is a wonderful one of renewal and self-awareness as Elise struggles to break free of choices she made in the past and move on with a life she chooses for herself.
I recommend LOST IN LAVENDER to readers that have enjoyed this series in the past. However, it makes for an excellent standalone book for those that want a romance mystery/romance set in the lovely French countryside.

With the opening scene, the author so immerses you in the French countryside and the smell of lavender, that you wish you were there.
Throw in a couple of murders, bats, screams in the night, young relatives, who eloped, angry parents, mobsters and smugglers, a house too small and overflowing with guests and you get a highly entertaining read.
I have read over half a dozen of the books in the series and eagerly await every release.

Jo

Oh… I so enjoyed this new visit to France with Elise, Merle and Pascal! I can smell the Lavender and taste the Rose and delectable plates…
