D.E. Haggerty's Review
The Frenchman is the story of Jean LaChance’s flight from France into Lilly Parsons arms. LaChance is a professional criminal that made of the mistake of pairing up with Lilly’s bumbling man. When the partner stiffs LaChance, LaChance shows up at Lilly’s house. Instead of finding his wayward partner, he finds Lilly and her three children.
While LaChance waits for his partner to show with the money, he falls in love with Lilly and her family. But Lilly doesn’t trust her instincts and runs the first chance she gets. Only she’s run off with LaChance’s money. Now the law and LaChance are after Lilly. What happens when she’s found?
I enjoyed the mystery element of the novel. The detective’s character was authentic. Although the reader was aware of the crime, it was interesting reading about the detective’s investigation and how his pursuit of Lilly progressed.
There were a few small things that bothered me about The Frenchman. The chapter titles annoyed me. They were too telling of what was going to happen, which is not a good thing in a mystery/suspense novel. There were also several stereotypes about the French, which made it painfully obvious that the author was not well-acquainted with the French.
I recommend this novel to romance lovers looking for a romance with a twist.
