Many thanks to Tracy Fenton and Compulsive Readers for my spot on this Blog Tour.

A sweet book about 9 semi retired friends moving to a French Chateau in the countryside for a gap year, expecting it to be a bed of roses, but it turned out to be quite a welcome back to reality.

My first book by author Sarah Long, the prose kept me amused with the different scenes of the crumbling house as managed by the eclectic group. The plumbing and the former owner provided their own entertainment. The story moved sedately with a few twists and turns.

The author was quite nifty in showing the group dynamics as the rocky stay escalated their tensions, and it was fun to see the characters come onto their own. Secrets were revealed down the story which captured my interest.

Overall, a sweet beach read.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

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?

    1. I am a mood reader, so I cannot read by organization. Hence book clubs don’t work for me as I am part of a few, but never attended any
