The sudden death of her husband turns Merle Bennett's life upside down. She finds herself doing what she least expected, decamping to France for the summer to fix up the ancestral home. The village in southwest France should be idyllic: warm sunshine, vineyards, and walls of golden stone. As the past unravels, colliding with modern tensions and the filthy trials of renovation, the summer takes on a dark cast, full of secrets best left buried.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.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karin U | 2/7/2014

    " As you begin reading this book it may seem predictable. But don't stop reading or you'll miss the twists and turns that make life unpredictable and remind you that people aren't always as they seem. Blackbird Fly doesn't flow as easily as other books I've enjoyed yet Merle's journey is intriguing and believable. "

    " Free on the Kindle...easy read, interesting mystery "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/27/2014

    " Nice little book to read while in France. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal P | 1/26/2014

    " I swear I gave it the college try - but I couldn't quite get through this one. I'm not sure what drew me to it to buy it, honestly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 1/26/2014

    " I loved it. I woke up very early unable to sleep and read the whole thing while the sun rose and the birds started to sing. Made me wish I inherited a little house in France. I would have liked a slightly different ending, but the one it has works here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 1/22/2014

    " I enjoyed the book. I don't know why it took me so long to get through it. I kept stopping and starting, reading other books in the meantime. I did empathize with the main character, Merle. I guess I too hear that voice, "What, what?" I guess the mystery wasn't as compelling as the main character's dilemma of being on the cusp of a new life completely different from what she knew before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 1/18/2014

    " I think I got this as a free download and didn't expect much from it, but the characters were interesting, the story was suspenseful, and I couldn't put it down! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Connie | 1/15/2014

    " To borrow a phrase from the book, "What, what?" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy Alter | 1/14/2014

    " A haunting story of intrigue, murder, violence . . . and love set in a beautifully portrayed rural French village. Beneath the elements of mystery, this is the story of one woman's growth, of a blackbird learning to fly. I heartily recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 1/11/2014

    " I received this as a "freebie" on my kindle. Liked it very much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 12/12/2013

    " I enjoyed this book - it was a nice vacation read. I was a little annoyed by the spelling/grammar errors. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vicki Bishop | 8/2/2013

    " Did not like it and did not finish. So many books so little time and this was not worth wasting my time reading ... this is after reading over 40% of it so I did give it a fair chance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pamela Barrett | 7/24/2013

    " Enjoyed the time I spent reading this mystery. If you like travel, villages in France, restoring old houses, and learning about wine while you try to figure out complex who-done-its this is the story for you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue Turner | 6/14/2013

    " A delightfully strange story. Several generations of dysfunction with shades of normality. The formatting wasn't great and the editing left a bit to be desired but overall this book was one I truly enjoyed. "

    " This one didn't do it for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue Hamly | 1/5/2013

    " A wonderful story of love, grief, fear, searching, finding and forgiveness in a small town in France. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 11/13/2012

    " I read this as a free kindle down-load and enjoyed it. Good but not great... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 8/24/2012

    " I didn't like the writing style when I started this book but came to enjoy it. I had a hard time putting the story town...a mix of mystery, love and philosophy about the meaning of life. "

    " When Merle's husband dies unexpectedly from a heart attack at his desk, she discovers their life together hadn't been quite what she thought it was. In trying to resolve her changed circumstances, she uncovers a mystery which takes her to France. Well written and engaging. "
