A house in France connects three women together — the woman who owns the house, the woman who lives in the house, and the woman who died in the house sixty years before. Merle Bennett inherits the house of her late husband, in a small village in the Dordogne. But when she arrives a deranged squatter won’t let her inside.
Secrets from the post-war period, when southwest France was left to wither by Nazi occupation, and secrets of a newer kind, occupy what should be a fine French summer for Merle. With her teenage son in tow, a sexy roofer in her kitchen, and a nasty discovery in the pissoir, there is plenty to keep her mind off her endless to-do list. A story of murder, self-discovery, and family, deep in the heart of France.
In her first stand-alone suspense novel, Lise McClendon reaches deep into the past to find a France untouched by the outside world of tourism and fashion. Writing in a “lyrical, often humorous style,” she brings both the pain and rewards of rebirth and the rich French countryside to life.
“This book brought me back to wanting to keep reading until the very end. Pour yourself a nice Merlot and keep turning the pages.”
“An intriguing story, a mystery with heart.”
“The characters were real and completely developed. All loose ends were tied up very nicely. This book climbed inside the main characters, flaws and all.”
“A very well written story, with characters that are interesting, likeable, and you care about them. There are dead bodies, suspense, and mystery. It’s just a great story!”
“It would be a great chick flick!”
