It's Eat Pray Love meets murder mystery in Lise McClendon's deliciously cozy chronicles of sisterhood, international travel ... and a soupçon of danger.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.

The Frenchman is the fifth book from Lise McClendon’s series, Bennett Sisters Mysteries. I have not read the first four books in the series, but I did not feel like I was missing anything or felt lost. I do hope I will soon go back and read those to see what had happened prior to this book. I found The Frenchman to be a delightful, intriguing, and fun story. I enjoyed the main character, Merle Bennett, as she travels to France. She definitely finds herself to have more excitement than she was planning for, that is for sure! The mystery she gets involved in kept me interested throughout the book. I never knew what was going to happen next. It was quite interesting at how it all ended. I give The Frenchman four stars. In my opinion, it is one other readers should add to their wish list. I look forward to more of this series and more books by Lise McClendon in the future. I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
I love how this author has let us sink down into a small Dordogne France village. It is especially in this village that the author uses a lovely amount of the five senses so we can get a real feel for being there.
