Theresa is approaching her sixtieth birthday. She's just lost her job and she certainly doesn't want to spend any more time looking after her daughter's rude children. So she sells up and buys a property in a sweet French town just outside Nice. There she meets a number of expats, including former TV star Sally, the incorrigible Zoe, glamorous American couple Carol and David, and the charming Brian. With a plan to make money through cooking classes and taking in a lodger, Theresa soon finds life isn't as peaceful here as she first thought.
This is an absolutely delightful story with a bunch of larger-than-life characters and a rollicking plot. Fantastique debut from a British actress.
