More About the Author

The new one is a Bennett Sisters novella - Give Him the Ooh-la-la! (Dec 2014) Merle and Pascal in New York City for the holidays, drag queens, wine, and misadventures!

The sequel to Blackbird Fly is here! The Girl in the Empty Dress finds Merle Bennett back in France, this time with all four of her sisters plus one friend. The friend, a law colleague of one sister, is moody and secretive and the Bennetts don't warm toward her. When she finds an injured dog along the roadside and determines to keep it, the walking tour of the Dordogne takes a dark and dangerous turn. Who is this dog everyone is after? And who is Gillian Sargent, the friend no one knows?

So exciting to be back in France again with the sisters. I did my own walking tour of France in 2012. It was much less exciting, but no more delightful, than the story told in The Girl in the Empty Dress.

This is my first Alix Thorssen mystery. Alix Thorssen is a very realistic and likeable character. I read so many mysteries, when I find one that truly surprises, I get excited. That was the case with this book...there were so many plot twists that I never saw coming and they all came together nicely to a very believable conclusion. My one complaint is that I wish something more would have happened with Carl...it was a little disappointing how that part of the story worked out. I agree with the other reviews of McClendon's work that she has the ability to describe things in a way that makes you feel like you're right there. Looking forward to reading the third mystery in this series, Nordic Nights.

Lise has created a wonderful character in Alix. She runs an art gallery with her friend and former lover, Paolo. Alix's friend's art gallery is burned, and she is called upon to put a value on the art burned in the fire. The mystery begins when the police find a body in the destroyed gallery. The story twists and turns, and she had me totally baffled as to who and why. The writing is delicious, and I highly recommend this book (which I thought was even better than Bluejay Shaman).

I sent all three of Lise's Alix Thoresson books to the avid readers on my Christmas list. Everyone responded with positive comments - "let me know when her next book comes out", "they are like the early Hillerman books, which are among my favorites", "she's a very entertaining writer. I was so glad to have the next book right there to continue the adventures"... As the gift giver, I was pleased that the recipients enjoyed Lise's mysteries as well as I did. Lise has the skill to keep the mystery alive throughout the book, keep the reader intrigued with the relationships among the characters, and throw in interesting educational tidbits about the settings. I look forward to more of her stories.

I just finished reading Painted Truth. Wow! What a great read. I was swept along in the great story line and descriptions. The protagonist, Alix Thorssen is a tough woman, trying to do the right thing by people and places she cares about, while juggling the relationships that keep us connected to other humans. I plan to read more Jackson Hole Mysteries by author Lise McClendon.

I have just finished this book and couldn't put it down. I loved the main character, Alix, and how things happened to her. I thought I knew how the story would end but I was so surprised. The descriptive passages were well written and not too long. I loved the way all the characters were developed. It was a great book.

With an e-reader (Kindle, in this case), I can enjoy "letting my fingers do the shopping". Thank you for providing the e-books.

This book was about a hundred pages to long. Information was restated and really did not matter. Could have been much better. If a business owner was really close to losing their business, they would not be off chasing clues about someone they never met. I guess I missed what previous reviewers found captivating.

I enjoyed reading this book. Stayed up to 3 am to finish it, LOL. A classic mystery with no obvious red herrings giving it away too soon. Enough twists and turns to keep you reading and thinking you might know who "done it", won't say more but its a good book, quite well written, well done.
