Reviews

A hugely enjoyable romp of a novel with eccentric characters, a delightful background and a savoury tang of crime * Katie Fforde * A warm, light-hearted, fast-paced tale that fans of Peter Mayle will enjoy * Joanne Harris * A very witty novel by a very witty woman. Hugely entertaining * Julian Fellowes * Utterly delicious in every way * Joanna Lumley * A sunny, funny debut novel ... a keenly observed, rollicking tale of mature expats reinventing themselves on the French Riviera * Mail on Sunday * This debut from national treasure actress Celia perfectly captures the colour of ex-pat life and the glitz and glamour of the South of France. A shaft of early summer sunshine, a funny, spirited read * Daily Mail * A comic caper set among the tangled lives of a group of expats in a southern French village * Observer * A delicious piece of entertainment ... Theresa finds herself in a nest of bonkers, scheming expats, and soon suspects that this paradise comes with serpents ... Theresa is a fabulous cook and Imrie includes the recipes of her signature dishes. Read the book, then make the chocolate fudge tiffin * The Times * In a delicious touch, the action is punctuated with recipes for the local dishes that are cooked by the characters so that readers can, if they wish, cook along with the action * Daily Telegraph * Evocative detail and colourful characters, Imrie's debut novel is a riotous tale of the highs and lows of life on the French Riviera * France Magazine * This debut from national treasure actress Celia perfectly captures the colour of ex-pat life and the glitz and glamour of the South of France. A shaft of early summer sunshine, a funny, spirited read * Daily Mail * It's lots of fun, with adventure at a certain age as its driving force, and sun-kissed recipes as chapter breaks * Sainsbury's Magazine *
