This is the fourth book in The Bennet Sisters Mysteries series. I like the four I have read up to now, because they can be read as stand alone books, as well as in order. They are all strong books standing tall in plot and writing skills.
In this case, the action is mostly in Scotland. Action is a key word here, as there is plenty to go around! Lise McClendon doesn't hold back in sparing the Bennet family in this book. There are deaths, mystery, and crime galore. Not only that, emotions run high, low, and out of control, among the sisters and extended family.
The tone of the series hold steady through this tale as the author takes the reader for a ride with the Bennetts. Everyone holds true to their character in action, word, and thought. They are a diverse, yet loving group.
I wanted to join them in Scotland, hear the language, walk the land, taste the food, and experience sleeping in the old drafty manor. Sadly, I'm at my kitchen table. Happily, for me, the author has the skill to transport me in my mind to watch the action and resulting mayhem. There was a wealth of things to stimulate the senses in the scenes written in this book. From wine and food, to sights and sounds, this book came alive.
I liked this book for the story itself and the skill of McClendon in helping me experience it. It's clever, fun, sad, mysterious, and just plain good reading. I do not have any qualms recommending it!
Merle's short side trip to France introduces us to the possibilities for the next novel in the series (I hope!).
The Things We Said Today by Lise McClendon was a great book that I loved from the first page. While I was reading this entire book I had a smile on my face because of some of the things that the characters were doing throughout the book. I also loved that this book takes place in Scotland. I have always wanted to travel there and after reading this book I know that at some point I will have to go. I loved all the crazy personalities that are in this book because you never knew what was going to happen and I loved that about this book. I am usually not a huge fan of romantic comedies but I loved this book and I know that I will be picking up the others books in this series because I loved everything about the characters and their personalities. The characters are people that I would want to hang out with in real like which means that the author did an excellent job of making the characters come to life as I was reading this book. If you love romance novels that leave you smiling after the book is over than I know this is the right book for you.
Like Jane Austen's characters, each Bennett sister has their own unique personality and I enjoy reading about the relationships between them as the story unfolds.
The cover illustration is very charming and appropriate to thr storyline.
THE THINGS WE SAID TODAY was a memorable read and could be enjoyed on it's own but I've read all the books in the series in order and would encourage a new reader to do the same. The short novella GIVE HIM THE OOH LA LA, which just precedes this book, is particularly important to the story.
I look forward to reading the next book about these Bennett girls!
