Publisher's Summary

Ooh-la-la, who doesn't love a Frenchman?

Merle Bennett goes back to France - and her Frenchman - in this fifth installment of the Bennett Sisters mysteries. Sure that la belle France will cure all her ills and help her write a novel about the French Revolution, she sets out to prove her theory correct. Pascal, her Frenchman, scoffs at this. As a policeman, he knows France is pretty to look at but not all that pretty under surface. While Merle writes and renovates her stone cottage, Pascal encounters an old enemy, a man he put in prison years before. When Pascal disappears, Merle isn't sure if their relationship is over or something terrible has happened to Pascal.

The Frenchman includes chapters of Merle's novel, a glimpse into life during the turmoil of the Revolution. With goats and a handsome stranger!

A soupçon of danger, a brush with madame guillotine, and the quirky characters of the French countryside, all collide in this new installment of the Bennett Sisters mysteries, set in la belle France - where, obviously, wine, sunshine, sunflowers, and Frenchmen cure all ills. Or do they?

More, please!!

I love this series so much! A must for any lover of the original Bennett sisters, Lisa McClendon offers up a modern twist— with mystery, goats and a handsome Frenchman no one could resist. Denice Stradling’s narration is impeccable. She’s great with all manner of accents, but mostly it’s the heart with which she delivers the voice of the heroine. She makes you feel like you’re listening to your best friend. You won’t regret the credit— but try and get the whole series, they’re all wonderful.

I enjoyed this audiobook

It's a fantasy to retire in a house in the French countryside, and I enjoyed this romantic adventure. Denice Stradling's narration is smooth, her characterizations clear. I especially liked the main character and her sisters, and the teenaged son is great. I listen while exercising, and I came to look forward to my time on the elliptical!
