Blackbird Fly

Just like Jane Austen’s fictional creations, Lise McClendon’s Bennett sisters are five women strong. Introduced in ‘Blackbird Fly’, the five sisters’ stories are told in the first book by middle sister, Merle. She is a lawyer — but so are all four of her sisters. Their father and grandfather were also attorneys.

Blackbird Fly begins with a sudden death. Merle Bennett’s husband has a heart attack, leaving her and their teenage son to figure out the rest of their lives without him. Secrets and lies, betrayals and surprises: all wait for Merle as she goes to France to fix up the house her husband left her. Her finances are precarious and she needs this house to provide for her son’s future. She finds that and so much more in a picturesque French village.

As one reviewer said, “Life, death, lost love, murder, mystery, new love, inherited French manor, and a treasure of lost wines! What more could you want?”
