Publisher's Summary

Merle Bennett is turning 50, and her four sisters are helping her celebrate by going to France on a walking tour of the Dordogne. But one sister invites along a law colleague whose annoying ways upset what Merle had hoped would be just "wine, women, and walking". When Gillian Sargent, the sixth wheel, finds an injured dog beside the road, the idyllic summer vacation takes a dark and dangerous turn. Why is the dog special? Who is after her? And what will they do to get the dog back?
Truffles, wine, romance, and intrigue in the heart of France.
All five Bennett sisters are lawyers. One is writing a blog about their trip, baring family details. As the intrigue heats up, one of Merle's boyfriends shows up from New York while her French boyfriend arrives unexpectedly. The delicate karma of sisterhood is rife with bickering, tears, and French law as the questions about Gillian Sargent pile up. Who exactly is she? What is she hiding? And where the hell has she gone with the dog?
Do you love women's suspense? Are you a not-so-secret lover of all things French? Come along on a trip to France with the Bennett sisters.

Great Book!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book; it is the second book in the Bennett Sisters Series. However, it can be read as a standalone. Merle is turning fifty years old and her four sisters are helping her celebrate in France. One of the sisters Francine ends up inviting one of her colleagues Gillian. When Gillian takes a walk she ends up rescuing an injured dog. Things end up going downhill fast when Gillian and the dog disappear. Now they need to find out what has happened. This book is great it has humor, mystery and suspense. Once I started listening to it, I couldn’t put it down until I was finished. This is the first book that I have listened to/read by this author, and I can’t wait to read more. I can’t wait until the next book in the series comes out.

A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review. The narrator Denice Stradling did a fantastic job with this book, and was very easy to listen to. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

If you are looking for a great book with great characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.
