The Frenchman

Merle Bennett goes back to France — and her Frenchman — in this fifth installment. 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 the 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.

A soupçon of danger, a brush with ‘madame guillotine,’ and the quirky characters of the French countryside, all collide here in la belle France— where, obviously, wine, sunshine, sunflowers, and Frenchmen cure all ills. Or do they?

Reviews

“Lise did it again entertaining us with wit, humor, sassy dialogues, sexy police officers and the usual village suspects of Malcouziac. France is charming but also can tax a foreigner with rigid rules and the insouciance and lackadaisical ways one lives there. Fun read, intriguing mystery and a novel way to drop in another story, ‘Odette and the great fear.’ Southern France never seems to age, rural agrarian life still holds its charms. A vivid look at life in France.”
