Product description

Max Skinner is a man at the heart of London's financial universe until his employers embark on a little asset-stripping of their own. Himself. Amid the grey London drizzle, there is one potential ray of sunshine: Max's Uncle Harry has left him his estate in his will - an eighteenth-century chateau and vineyard an hour's drive from Avignon. Out of a job, and encouraged by his friend Charlie about the money in modern wine, he heads for France. What Max discovers is a beautiful house, wonderful weather and a bustling village. The downside is the quality of the wine in his vineyard, but when Max suggests calling in an expert, Roussel, a former employee of his uncle's, is resistant. Help is at hand, however, when a beautiful blonde Californian arrives unexpectedly at the chateau. Peter Mayle's delightful novel will enchant the audiences who bought A YEAR IN PROVENCE and TOUJOURS PROVENCE in their millions.

Review quote

The charming bouquet is uncorked for you by Mayle. He has an unflinching eye for local detail in the zany crime caper set in Bordeaux. IRISH EXAMINER Entertaining stuff- but you might find yourself gasping for a glass of the red stuff. DAILY EXPRESS Through deliciously evocative descriptions of the landscape and great characterisation, you'll find yourself foregoing meals in order to find out what happens next. FRENCH MAGAZINE A feel-good story with a good plot and plenty of humour. A very enjoyable read. LIVING FRANCE
