Audrey Webber knew her marriage had become increasingly stale, so she decided to surprise husband Alex with a tenth anniversary trip to France. After a seeming betrayal, she went on the trip by herself. On the overseas flight, a man seated near her on the plane gave her a pocket watch, warning her it was dangerous. She also met another passenger, Ina Bloom, who provided support during the trip and became a close friend. However, Audrey soon became embroiled in a cat-and-mouse international drama, fueled by the mysterious watch. Secret agents from the United States, France, and Russia followed her and each other. She also realized there was much about Alex that he had kept secret. Author Gerri LeClerc has written a thrilling adventure in The French Revelation.

There are many intriguing aspects to this story. Audrey stayed in the picturesque town of Honfleur, in the Normandy region of France. She was able to do some sightseeing in this town, as well as Mont St. Michel, adding to the backdrop of the idyllic French culture. The character development of Audrey is also fascinating as she redefines herself, with her anxiety diminishing and her courage building with each terrifying circumstance she faces. Her relationship with Josh, an American agent, develops, and its final resolution is not known until the last pages. The author crafted a suspenseful plot, written in a flowing, easy-to-read manner. Although there are many characters, the reader is able to distinguish each one easily. In The French Revelation, author Gerri LeClerc has written an unforgettable and entertaining tale.
