Some are rich and some are poor — but that all depends on how one defines those adjectives … monetarily or spiritually. While at home, he meets Isabel Yancy, a graduate student involved in a biology study of bees. Lise McClendon is a joy to read. Her stories are unique and inventive … no traditional formulas for her, thank you very much. Her dialogue is witty, her characters multi-dimensional, and her locales so well defined that the visuals replay in your head long after you lay the book down.
He gets sucked into the family drama, and the tempting wiles of the college field team next door. The leader of the crew studying wild bees is Isabel Yancey, a rude city girl with her own baggage, including a rich family she despises. What does a draftsman from Minneapolis, born into a cheesy polka band, have in common with a prickly, ambitious scientist who studies bees? How badly does she want him to breach her defenses? Romance, humor, and the heartache of growing up make All Your Pretty Dreams a unique journey through the hearts and minds of young adults searching for the keys to happiness in a complicated world.

The Frenchman by Lise McClendon
Buy an Iambik audiobook here. Merle Bennett, a legal aid lawyer in New York, is shocked by the sudden death of her husband. She takes her teenage son to France when she escapes her grief. But soon any calm she feels is overshadowed by the past. A crumbling house, a deranged squatter somehow connected to her husband, unfriendly villagers, a ghastly surprise in the garden house — it makes a girl almost wish for the sleepy suburbs.
In her first suspense novel, Lise McClendon reveals her love of both the French countryside and the intimacies and drama of family. A few writers are gifted with a feel for place that transforms locale from mere background into a vital element. To their number add Lise McClendon. Buy at barnesandnoble.

But did Wade Fraser, University of Montana professor, do the deed? Alix follows a trail of moonlit rituals and legendary artifacts as another murder leads her to a chilling confrontation with a killer. Reminiscent of Tony Hillerman at his best.

The investigation makes her confront her own contradictions as an art lover, turning everything she knows upside down. She must examine her ethics and even her way of life to find the truth, and justice. But not without a very high price. This one did. I give it my highest recommendation. McClendon knits detective work together with domestic betrayals in a satisfyingly intricate tangle.

Alix, persistent and unflappable, begins to investigate, but accidents plague her and her family: the Viking ship nearly crushes her; her mother barely escapes a hit-and-run; and Bjarne, a seductive ski-racer who has beguiled Alix, is also implicated in the murder.
McClendon works a good deal of Nordic folklore into her story. The fortune-teller is a specialist in runes, and her silver-and-wood tools quickly become a central point in the case: Are the runes museum quality? Have they been stolen? Her agreeably feisty heroine and a hair-raising finale will keep readers entertained throughout the night, Nordic or otherwise. This is the fourth novel in an engaging series featuring artist, gallery owner, and sometime sleuth Alix Thorssen, a resident of touristy Jackson Hole, Wyoming. October is a slow month for tourism in Jackson Hole, but there is enough drama among the locals to keep them busy.
In the midst of an uproar over the shooting of an endangered wolf, a friend asks Alix to look into an older crime—the murder of a local boy. The first two books are set mostly in rural France, in the Dordogne, which shapes much of the stories as well. In each book I get to focus on, and learn more about, different sisters, and I have to say their personalities are all their own. All different, from the Bohemian who is set to get married in Scotland in The Things We Said Today , to the beauty who loves the law, to the Martha Stewart one and the wild child.
In this story we get to see them all interact together, something readers have told me they wanted. And I am offering a free e-book of Blackbird Fly to anyone who joins my newsletter mailing list. Check that out over here. The new book is available for pre-order now. Join me on the village streets — my booth will be in front of Frame of Reference Gallery on Electric Avenue. And my hunny, Don Beans, will sing and play guitar at the Festival stage, at Saturday!
It will be published October 4, in paperback, e-book, AND audio book. Read an excerpt and find out where to buy it on my website. My dad was an elementary school teacher for 32 years, and at 88 has students stop by regularly for coffee… students who are now silver-haired grandparents and still appreciate the joy of learning he brought into his 6 th grade classroom every day. When it was time for me to choose my profession, it was an easy decision to make.
