Sisters Kitty and Jenny haven’t spoken since a very disappointing Carvery lunch. Kitty, sixty-two, thinks Jenny is turning grey. Jenny, sixty-six, thinks Kitty needs to grow up!
So when both sisters inherit a farmhouse in rural France, it gives them the perfect chance to heal the rift between them. Except the farmhouse is a wreck, the garden is terrorized by a flock of chickens, not to mention a donkey with a serious flatulence problem!
Kitty is determined to enjoy herself, especially when she meets gorgeous French builder, Leo. Ooh la – la! And Jenny finds the fully stocked wine cellar helps enormously with missing horrible husband Paul – hic!
And as the two sisters begin to repair their fragile friendship, they discover that being bad is actually very good for the soul.
When Kitty and Jenny receive a farmhouse in France in Aunt’s inheritance, the journey out there is the perfect time for them to make up for past rifts. At first things don’t seem like they’ll be that easy. Not only is their relationship strained, but the house needs so much work doing, and Jenny is trying to get used to life without her Husband constantly having an input. But as time moves on, tensions start to ease and they start having fun together. However, Kitty is drawn to the builder Leo which doesn’t go down well with Jenny…..Will they mend their relationship? And what will the time away do for them both?
I loved the previous book I read by Maddie, so was looking forward to this. It is absolutely brilliant, I found myself laughing out loud so much at Jenny’s antics. Even her thoughts had me in stitches – what a fantastic character! Jenny is one of those women that you want to be like when you’re 62. She just wants to have fun and I loved that about her. Jenny, on the other hand, is quite uptight to begin with, and it was lovely watching her loosen up and come to some serious realisations about her life. Leo is an absolutely gent, and I absolutely loved the animals in this which will also make you laugh!
The setting was fantastic. I felt like I was there with the sisters on their journey – seeing the sights and seeing the house and land come together. And the food in this made my stomach rumble on numerous occasions!
The story is a lovely one – of sisterhood, forgiveness, truths, second chances and living life without fear. Maddie’s writing style is wonderful, easy to engage with and a joy to read. She’s definitely up there now with the list of authors I look out for – I can’t wait for her to bring us the next rib tickling read. Highly recommended by me.
