About the Book
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.
About the Author
Maddie Please is the author of four bestselling romantic comedies, having had a career as a dentist and now lives in rural Devon where she enjoys box sets, red wine, and Christmas. She will be taking a new direction in her writing for Boldwood with joyous tales of older women.
There’s nothing like a book to make you feel cozy as the autumn days get ready to make way to winter. When feuding sisters Kitty and Jenny are tasked with fixing up their deceased aunt’s French farmhouse, Kitty knows it will be a chore. Not just the repairs, but dealing with her sister Jenny. But it’s been a few years, and she wants to repair her relationship with her sister. But these two sisters are night and day, and that might be a tall order for them.
Please wrote these characters well. Jenny is the complete opposite of me. She’s too rigid, with a controlling husband, and she doesn’t appear to have any joy in her life. Please wrote her unlikability well, and if ever there was a character to help Jenny out, it was lighthearted Kitty. I enjoyed watching the sisters work together while trying to navigate their relationship. The added bonus of Kitty meeting a love interest made an already cozy book feel that much cozier. Overall, this book makes you feel good. It’s lighthearted, funny, and endearing.
