Max Skinner, man about town and successful City slicker, finds himself suddenly redundant and instead of rejoining the rat race he has an opportunity to start a new life when he finds he has inherited an 18th century vineyard in Provence. It sounds ideal but life has a habit of surprising even in paradise.

Peter Mayle’s delightful novel will enchant the audiences who bought A YEAR IN PROVENCE and TOUJOURS PROVENCE in their millions. Affectionate and witty, his unerring eye for human eccentricity and ambition results in great entertainment and a page-turning narrative. Once more, he has created his own vibrant world in which thousands will want to be occupants.


The charming bouquet is uncorked for you by Mayle. He has an unflinching eye for local detail in the zany crime caper set in Bordeaux.
Entertaining stuff- but you might find yourself gasping for a glass of the red stuff.
Through deliciously evocative descriptions of the landscape and great characterisation, you'll find yourself foregoing meals in order to find out what happens next.
A feel-good story with a good plot and plenty of humour. A very enjoyable read.
