The hilarious and feel-good novel about escaping the rat race, friendship and new beginnings If you love Jo Thomas, Cathy Bramley and Veronica Henry, this book is for you! When Nicola's husband, Dominic, retires they decide not to spend their days finding hobbies to fill the time until Countdown is on channel 4. Instead, they fulfil their life-long fantasy of buying a house in the French countryside 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 chateau 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?

MEDIA REVIEWS
I was hooked from the start on this emotionally intelligent read * Daily Mail, on Invisible Women *
Irreverent, witty and emotionally charged, Long's rollercoaster ride zones in with exquisite precision and perception on the dreams, despairs and dilemmas of all middle-aged women getting ready to say a final goodbye to their youth and looking forward to new beginnings. Warm, intelligent reading for the autumn nights! * Lancashire Evening Post, on Invisible Women *
The perfect spring read * Chat! *
Emotionally charged and laced with a good dose of humour, this novel is one everyone approaching retirement will identify with, when it comes to re-establishing the boundaries, hopes and expectations of this new generation of adventurers * My Weekly *
"A chateau in Normandy populated by friends: shopping, cooking, gardening, emotional entanglements, tragedy, romance. It's a treat" * BookBrunch *
Book of the Week. A humorous and insightful novel about what it's like to throw caution to the wind * Woman's Weekly *
