    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.
