Summary

When Nicola's husband, Dominic, retires they decide not to spend their days finding hobbies to fill the time until Countdown is on. Instead, they fulfil their life-long fantasy of buying a country house and filling it with their dearest friends. Reliving their youth and spending their children's inheritance.

Joined by seven of their friends they club together to invest in a château in Normandy. Group dinners, fine wine, beautiful scenery - they're living the dream!

But la vie en rose is harder than it first appears. Is there a reason why only teenagers take gap years?

This is sharp, irreverent and very funny women's fiction for grown-ups. If you love Dawn French, Sue Townsend and Veronica Henry, this book is for you!
