If you are familiar with the Hetta Coffey series by Jinx Schwartz, you'll discover Just Pardon My French, the 8th in her series is quite a departure from previous Hetta Coffey locations in that she is hired to accompany a shipment across the pond where she will later rendezvous with Jenks for a long awaited romantic holiday in the south of France. While some of the usual characters are missing, most of the favorites are there including her BFF Jan and her beloved Po Thang, a serious rescue. Of c [...]

This time leaving her yacht, Raymond Johnson and pooch, Po Thang in Bajo México while she headed off to France, accompanied by her beau, Jenks. That is, until Jenks gets called out to Paris due to terror attacks and Hetta is left alone again. That's always a precursor for trouble. Soon Hetta, Jan and Po Thang befriend a fellow traveler who they feel is being taken for a ride by a suspicious Frenchman. Using his looks [...]
Light and entertainingI enjoyed this after reading a down and dirty drama or murder mystery. I always like to break it up a bit so I can enjoy the next spine tingler even more. This was a great book to do just that. Good story line, great story telling, and superb verbiage selection. It reminded me of exploits a friend of mine and I used to get into, albeit, not in Europe. It was worth the read.
4.5 stars in the Cozy category.Hetta and her buddy Jan are a hoot. Irreverent, dog loving, and bad influences on each other. I'd love to hang out with them.Being a bit of a Francophile, I loved the French twist (so to speak) in this book.This was my first Hetta Coffey. I'm going to go back and read the earlier ones while I still have my Kindle Unlimited!
Hetta Coffe is back,! A captivating series of events keeps you entertained, as expected, and turning pages because you just have to find out what she's up to next! Well written tale of fun on the run as well as a healthy dose of "look what their involved in now"!
Skip the French just keep the pages turningFantastic book. The characters and the action keep you turning the pages. Couldn't stop reading this book such great detail to keeping the suspense building.

I wanted a book to try out my new reader and this was an free book that I could upload quickly and start reading. It was 'advertised' as a fun adventure mystery. I found it light on the mystery but it was fun and light with lots of humor. I'd read more in this series when I need a light break or distraction.
Entertaining.This was the first book in this series written by this author I read. If you're Texan and can speak French you'll love it. Laughed so much, good summer reading. Hetta and her friends, especially her dog are loveable characters.

Great fun readThis book popped up on my recommended amazon list and as I live in France, i was a tad intrigued. While a trifle obvious it was a really enjoyable read and i was pleased to find a lot if accurate French thrown in. The aptly wonderful descriptions of our local nosh made tastebuds tingle. From Jinx's accurate descriptions of the varying French main characters it is obvious that she has spent some considerable time in France to be able to portray them as well as she has. Super quick r [...]
Hetta is the best kind of Texas woman- the kind that reminds me of Ann Richards and Molly Ivins- bold, brash, and sensible.When her lover has to flee their vacation because of work pressures, Hetta has nothing to amuse herself with. So her best friend and dog come for a visit, and they pick up a stray who definitely needs them, and - well, it all got VERY pear-shaped and interesting! Not at all realistic, mind, but lots of fun to read.I will likely be looking up more of Hetta's adventures.
I took this book for what it was escapism from winter and my boat being on the hard. I studied French for years so liked that twist. I am disturbed by the anti Muslim slant to this book. I know French & Germans with this same attitude and believe that creates more not less stressors between beliefs. I'm not sure I will try another in the series. I prefer the thoughtful Isabel Dalhousie series where kindness maters.
Hetta's at it againIf there's trouble to be had, Hetta Coffey will find it. Or it'll find her.It was just a trip to France, to meet up with Jenks and enjoy a little vacation.Then it all hit the fan.Followers of Hetta and her entourage will enjoy this take on real-life events, and the consequences of them.
Fun readEasy read about 2 Texas gals on an extended visit to the south of France. Throw in a dog, a flock of swans, new powerful friends, canal boats, and an innocent tourist, a terrorist or two and you have the stuff of a really interesting story. Now add to the mix an old love and a new one and see what happens. Give this one a read.
Pure Entertainment A fantastic book with great characters. Hetta is funny and true to herself with a dog named Po Thang that can keep you in stitches. Po Thang’s antics provide humor and smiles to all. I would highly recommend this book.
Another great readVery entertaining, Schwartz and the Hetta Coffey series have given me great joy in reading. They are funny, fun to read, with mystery, and of course a loveable dog and friend.
Highly entertainingI love this series!!! I can't put the books down once I start. Very entertaining and with just enough detail that it keeps the story moving, plus I love sassy women!!!
Great read!As always Hetta and Jan are a delight and two strong female characters are just icing on the cake. Their escapades are never dull and their experience in France was a fun read. Bring on more Hetta!
Not too sure, but glad I kept readingWas not too sure about this book when I first started to read, but decided to give it a try. Glad I did as I thoroughly did enjoy and finished this book in one setting, Will be looking to find more books with Hetta and her friend, Jan.
Very engagingIt was great to take a trip with old friends. I feel I know these characters personally. I have read and enjoyed most of the Hetta Coffey books. I look forward to the others.
Keep 'em Coming!Jinx Schwartz books are a joy and laugh-out-loud read. Laughter is said to be the best medicine and this book was just what the doctor ordered. Kudos Jinx, I loved it!
Best YetSomewhat different from the other Hetta Coffe books that I've read, but in a good way. I enjoyed these new characters, remembering my French and just having a good laugh. Great book.
Highly RecommendedBeing a (somewhat) French-speaking woman who lived in Texas for thirty years, I was instantly drawn to Just Pardon My French. I highly recommend this book and plan to read more. (May be read as a stand alone novel.)
More, More, More Hetta!Not sure I could get too much of Hetta and her pal Jan. Loved the ladies' manner of speaking and their "problem solving" skills. Can't wait to find more Betts and Jan mischief!
Fun, Quick ReadHetta Coffey continues her adventures as a job escorting cargo results in her stuck on a river barge in the south of France. As always her repartee and wit make a delightful story. This is definitely a book where the value is in the journey.
Always a great book!Hetty and Jan get in over their heads as usual but as always it is hilarious! I love these books and highly recommend them if you like smart mouths and mayhem! Thank you again for a good time!
