Publisher's Summary

Sisters Kitty and Jenny haven’t spoken since a very disappointing Carvery lunch. Kitty, 62, thinks Jenny is turning grey. Jenny, 66, 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 terrorised 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.

Perfect

Loved this book, almost didn’t listen based on the other reviews however, it was perfect. Laughed out loud at the very English jokes and sense of humor that I miss growing up in England, I must be getting old. The story was very relatable. The narrator was excellent. Will likely listen to the others by Maddie Please.

British accent is hard to understand

I think I would have liked this book but the strong British accent of the narrator was hard to understand. I tried 3 different times to listen and ended up not finishing the book.

Sisters Are Forever.

Sisters Kitty and Jenny haven’t spoken for years when they inherit their aunt’s house in France. As they restore the place for sale they rediscovered their live for each other and their enjoyment of life. A great story.

Great tale

Loving sisters falling out how very true to life. I wouldn't like to spoil the tale for another reader. They made me laugh as well as feel their pain.

loved it

I loved this book. I laughed and cried out loud at different points, recognising myself in some of kitty's life story .. it's full of love, loss, resentment, forgiveness and learning to understand a siblings view of life, both growing up and as an adult and it's not always as it appears. The Narrator was great and brought the characters to life, I look forward to more books

Good but ….

So I might be a bit critical here, but it was a little burning if I’m honest.
Good book, well written and good narrator, but still a little boring. Why on earth were they going on about the wine chateau names on the bottle…? (And I’m a massive wine snob) but there was just no need.
Ohh well … to be honest it is a great bed time listen for this reason.

Another FAB-YOU-LUSS book from Maddie Please

It would be fair to say that I am not Maddie Please’ target audience. I’m a thirty three year old chap who would not be described by people who know me as a “big reader” but I absolutely ADORED this book.

I laughed and cried in equal measure and was genuinely sad when I got to the end. Surely, this book has to be made into a film?!

I cannot wait for Maddie’s next release! When is it??

Thanks, Maddie and thanks also to Penelope Freeman who is extremely talented and really does this book justice.
