    1. This was set in really picturesque rural France – it made you want to travel. It follows the five Bennett Sisters who find an injured dog that needs some medical attention. They get into some amusing situations. It was a nice easy going book. Merle has a cottage in Dordogne and her sisters have come to visit to celebrate a family birthday. It made you want to tag along!Pascal adds a love interest- he’s the local policeman.References to French food added to the atmosphere.Lots of twists and t [...]

    2. We join Merle back in the old stone cottage in the Dordogne that she rescued and restored in Blackbird Fly and that kind of rescued her too from a difficult emotional time. This visit her four sisters, her son and a friend are with her to enjoy a summer holiday eating al fresco, walking in the French countryside and filling the old house with life and laughter. However their plans are thrown awry when they find an injured dog by the roadside and things soon get complicated, tempers rise and sibl [...]

    3. Thanks to Net Galley for providing me a review copy in exchange for an honest review.The Bennett sisters have gone on a walking holiday in France, and have invited along Gillian who is a colleague of Francie Bennett. None of the sisters really can get to grips with Gillian as she is very aloof. While walking one day they spot an injured dog and Gillian decides take it with them and to find a vet in the next village.A couple of days later, there is a big argument one evening at dinner, and this s [...]

    4. Part mystery part romance, this delightful read takes you deep into the Dordogne region and the very lucrative truffle hunting business. Great way of getting to know an interesting facet of France… and beyond!A mystery in the neat French region of Dordogne? How was I going to resist reading this book? I could not, and this was indeed a very delightful read.Merle and her sisters Annie, Francie, Stasia and Elise spend some vacation time in Dordogne, where Merle bought a house, and they decide to [...]

    5. The five Bennett sisters(with a nod perchance to Jane Austen) are having a birthday celebration for their middle sister at her vacation home in France. Merle, who is turning the big 5-0, has her teenage son along but it is the addition of two invited and unexpected guests that complicate the sibling bonding.Sister Francine has brought her friend and law associate, Gillian, with her.

    6. Really enjoyed the romantic suspense “The Girl in the Empty Dress” by Lise McClendon was an enjoyable read. Although I did not read “Blackbird Fly” the first book in this series, I did not feel like I could not follow the story and it did not stop me from enjoying it.

There is a family visit, a mysterious dog and a handsome Frenchman, Pascal.Th [...]

    7. Received from France Book Tours for an honest reviewI really like romantic suspense so “The Girl in the Empty Dress” by Lise McClendon was an enjoyable read for me.

    8. Great Book!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 hu [...]

    9. I received a free kindle copy of The Girl in the Empty Dress (Bennett Sisters Book 2) by Lise McClendon, published by Thalia Press from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.While this is Book 2 of the Bennett Sisters books, it can stand alone. I enjoyed the interaction between the five sisters & their added friend on their vacation to France. This book is rife with tension. It's ripe with romance. It's about discovering which relationships matter. Cheese & wine tasting take up a lot o [...]

    10. In book one our Widow finds out she inherited a house in rural France and drama ensues - one year later she and her 4 sisters (all five are lawyers who followed their father and grandfather into that profession) planned vacation is not quite what it was supposed to be The youngest sister invited a friend from her law firm and the friend doesn't fit in to the family dynamics - add a dog, a kidnapping and a handsome man that did some repairs to the house the year before and voila another good read [...]

    11. Merle and her sisters intend to spend a peaceful vacation in the Dordogne area of France. During their travels, the Bennett sisters become embroiled in the kidnapping of a truffle dog. The characters are appealing, and the sense of place enhances the story. Enjoyed it.

    12. I really enjoyed this book. It is a great sequel to Blackbird Fly, which I also enjoyed. There are great characters in these books and the mysteries are really good and page turners for sure. I highly recommend both and that you read them in order.

    13. Very fun read. Enjoyed the glimpses of rural France and the character development along with the mystery. Very well done!

    14. Liked it.Thought it was a good read. A little slow in some spots. I read it while eating brie and drinking wine. I felt like I was in the garden.

    15. This was a very enjoyable book. I truly loved the setting more than anything else about this story.

    16. An enjoyable book. I like the siblings, and especially the setting in the Dordogne region of France. I must go back and read BLACKBIRD FLY now.

    17. Merle returns to her country home in a small French town with son Tristan and her sisters, who are all lawyers. They were joining Merle for a couple of weeks to do some walking tours of the surrounding area. One of the sisters brought alone a co-worker(Gillian), who everyone took an instant dislike. She was aloof, and complained about everything. On one of their walks Gillian and Tristan finds a hurt dog. Gillian insist they carry the dog to the next village for care. Gillian becomes obsessed wi [...]

    18. Like the first book, I really liked the combination of chick lit storytelling and the minor mystery that parallels the story, but this time the mystery played a much larger part. I wish there had been more development with the sisters' relationships with each other and less about the kidnappers (since that part really didn't do anything for the story as far as I'm concerned). I'm still a bit confused as to why Gillian disappeared with the dog and the wrap up was only a couple pages long which gl [...]

    19. This 2nd installment in the Bennett Sisters mystery series had much more intrigue and complex characters than the 1st one. I could see why the book was given the odd title. It was fun getting acquainted with other 4 sisters but I was very glad Merle was again the central figure. I am waiting for book #3 to download so I can get back into the lives of these interesting women.

    20. The Girl in the Empty Dress by Lise McClendon is another really long book in the Bennett Sisters series, but I really loved it. The characters are amazing in their differences, and similarities. The plot is great, a terrific mystery with wonderful details. It sits solidly as a stand-alone, but fits in well as a series. I will need more.

    21. Second book in the Bennett sisters serie. Lovely setting - France - and a good story. The blogs from one if the sisters are laced through the story. I did not like that, it got the pace out of the story. All in all: three stars!

    22. This was just as action packed as Blackbird Fly. The second installment in the ongoing story of the Bennett sisters. A lost dog starts in motion a series of seemingly unrelated events that culminate in a couple of kidnappings. A seriously entertaining and nail-biting story!

    23. Good readThis is a excellent series. You need to read the first book followed immediately by the second. Refreshing plot well written. I was glued from the first chapter of book one. It didn't decline in book two. I can't wait for book three.

    24. anurseandabook/20What They SayThe five Bennett Sisters are tramping along the backroads of France, enjoying the sunshine and wine, when they discover an injured dog and their idyllic summer vacation takes a dark turn. Truffles, romance, secrets, and intrigue in the heart of France. What I Say Well, well, well. I really wanted to like this book. But I have a problem with books that have too many characters. Five sisters? Is that really necessary? I felt the same way reading this that I do when I [...]
