Theresa is desperate for a change. Forced into early retirement, fed up with babysitting her bossy daughter's obnoxious children, she sells her Highgate house and moves to the picture-perfect town of Bellevue-sur-Mer, just outside Nice. With its beautiful villas, bustling cafes and shimmering cerulean sea, the village sparkles like a diamond on the French Mediterranean coast.

Would you listen to Not Quite Nice again? Why?

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this beautifully performed story whilst pottering around cleaning my house. Much needed sunshine for dingy winter evenings.

What about Celia Imrie’s performance did you like?

I'm a big fan - as the author she could strike exactly the right note throughout.
