Signed copies of Lise McClendon's The Things We Said Today



Another summer, another Bennett Sisters adventure. This time the whole family travels to Scotland for oldest sister Annie's wedding to a handsome Scot. They take over his family hunting lodge in the Highlands for a week. But is Annie, fourteen years older than her groom and a confirmed bohemian, ready to give up her independence in her middle 50s? This is just one of the obstacles to the general happiness in a week with a torrential rainstorm, a recalcitrant housekeeper, a sister who tipples, and another who chases after a sketchy Frenchman. Will Merle accept Pascal's invitation to go back to France with him? So many questions, so many sisters. How will they sort it all out? Find out in "The Things We Said Today," the third full-length Bennett Sisters novel after "Blackbird Fly" and "The Girl in the Empty Dress." Don't miss the novella where Annie gets engaged: "Give Him the Ooh-la-la."

Two years ago I went to Scotland for the fourth time (or maybe the fifth!) Perhaps because I am Scottish on the McClendon and Stewart sides my heart always longs for the Highlands. So it was natural that I set my next Bennett Sisters novel in Scotland, at the wedding discussed in Give Him the Ooh-la-la, with Merle and Pascal in New York City for the holidays, drag queens, wine, and misadventures! You might recognize the tartan on the cover. The Logan tartan (Callum) is the same as the Maclennan, my forebearers. The Bennett tartan is also featured. Besides my own novels I am a co-author with four other novelists of the foodie thriller, Beat Slay Love. This dark, comic send-up of Eat Pray Love is "delicious over-the-top fun." Check it out here on Amazon. Check in with Lise at

Each copy will come with a bookplate signed by Lise.
