Series: A Bennett Sisters Novel #3
Author: Lise McClendon
Publication Date: August 15, 2016
Genres: Mystery, Suspense, Women’s Fiction
Somebody’s getting married — or are they?
The whole Bennett clan travels to Scotland for one
sister’s wedding. That is enough of a stressor but then
the skies over Scotland do what they do best — get nasty.
In this third novel featuring the five lawyer sisters
(after Blackbird Fly
and The Girl in the Empty Dress
plus the latest, the novella, Give Him the Ooh-la-la
the family dynamics come into play: jealousy, intrigue,
bad behavior, and, yes, some pretty decent behavior. Will
Merle, the middle sister, the tent pole, be able to calm
the waters, rally the troops, and get a sister hitched?
Will the sister change her mind? Will the rogue
Frenchman (or two) get the sister they desire?
All will be revealed
Five sisters named Bennett… Wait. Five Bennett
sisters, like that Jane Austen classic? Why, yes. Except
these are all lawyers and grown up, married, widowed,
and divorced. Not looking for husbands to save them,
thank you very much. I did have some fun in this novel,
referencing the bad behavior of certain Pride and Prejudice
characters, as well as riffing on the gothic novel with a
creepy old country house, a massive rainstorm, and a
mysterious death. I hope you have as much
fun with it as I did. — Lise McClendon
About the Author
Lise McClendon writes mysteries and thrillers, and women’s suspense. The Bennett Sisters Novels are women’s suspense, featuring a little romance, a little intrigue, and the family dynamics of five sisters who are all lawyers. The series began with Blackbird Fly
, the story of the middle sister, Merle, whose husband leaves her a little stone house in France. The restoration of the house, and of Merle’s life, takes the reader on a journey of self-discovery with wine, secrets, and a sexy roofer.
The second book, from 2014, is The Girl in the Empty Dress. It follows the sisters through France on a walking tour that goes off track when the sixth wheel, a friend of one sister, tries to save an injured dog they find by the road.
And now, the third full-length novel is almost here! The Things We Said Today takes the Bennett sisters to Scotland for one sister’s wedding. Some events take place is in southwest France and Paris, following Merle and Pascal and one wayward sister intent on ‘doing a Lydia’ like the youngest in Pride and Prejudice.
