Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With his national bestsellers A Year in Provence and Toujours Provence, Peter Mayle gave new meaning to the phrase "great escape." Now he has written a delightful novel of romance, adventure, and tongue-in-cheek suspense, set in the beguiling French region he has staked out as his own.

Review:

"[As] smooth as a sip of pastis." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[S]mart dialogue at full glitter throughout." Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Peter Mayle spent fifteen years in the advertising business, first as a copywriter and then as a reluctant executive, before escaping Madison Avenue in 1975 to write educational books for children.

He is also the author of Encore Provence, Toujours Provence, A Dog's Life, Anything Considered and Chasing Cezanne. In addition to writing books which have been translated into more than twenty languages, Mayle has contributed to the Sunday Times, Financial Times, Independent, GQ and Esquire. He and his wife and two dogs live in the South of France.

Money, adventure & lust are comically woven together in Mayle's tale of a wealthy, 40-ish, London advertising exec who swaps one chaotic life for another with the help of his life-long butler and & a pretty, French native. Mayle's writings on Provence are always the "bubbly" of my bookshelf... the Rx necessary for a good laugh.
