Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John and Georgia left London for the joys of a simple, modest life in the French countryside, in their little dream "cottage." After a summer of sun and parties with friends, they have to face facts: the simple life is turning out more expensive than they’d expected, the winter is harsh and the locals are trouble. And why does Georgia put on so much make-up to see other men? The follow-up to the hilarious Death in the Dordogne, The Englishman’s Wife is another wry look at the expatriate dream gone horribly wrong.

Synopsis:

When John and Georgia abandon the hectic pace of London life and move to their "dream" cottage in the Dordogne, they envisage playing happy families in rustic surroundings. But it's not long before the cracks start to appear.

Synopsis:

More skullduggery set in France. Follows Sanders' successful debut Death in the Dordogne.

About the Author

Louis Sanders studied English at the Sorbonne and lived for several years in Britain. An Ignoble Profession is his third novel set among the British community in the Dordogne where he now lives.
