Publisher's Summary

When Merle's husband dies suddenly the will is quite a shock. And so is an intriguing surprise - Harry left her a family home in a tiny French village. She had no idea he owned the house where he was born. Merle sets out to claim her inheritance, adolescent son in tow, and thus begins a sojourn reminiscent of A Year in Provence, or perhaps Under The Tuscan Sun. 

Malcouziac, Merle’s tiny Dordogne town, is the quintessential village - just perfect for a murder. And a rollicking good time. Particularly recommended for those who love France or have plans to visit there. Mystery lovers, chick lit fans, and cozy fanatics will all find it très chouette - simply formidable! 

Blackbird Fly, the first book in the long-running Bennett Sisters Mystery series, leads the way to many more, most of which are available in audio.

Engaging

Blackbird Fly takes us from CT to France to London and back to CT in an engaging story of love, culture and mystery that keeps us listening for details of Meryl’s predictable life and new beginnings and her late husband’s complex family history.

It’s a different cozy mystery, not frivolous or simple. The narration is mostly good but could use a bit more emotion and vocal inflection.

We will keep this author in mind.
