Publisher's Summary

Somewhere on the French Riviera, tucked between glitzy Monte Carlo and Cannes' red carpets, lies the sleepy town of Bellevue-Sur-Mer. Sheltered from the glittering melee, it is home to many an expat - although it hasn't proved as peaceful as expected.

Now an enterprising band of retirees has resolved to show it's never too late to start afresh and open a restaurant. Snapping up a local property and throwing themselves into preparations, Theresa, Carol, William and Benjamin's plans are proceeding unnervingly well. But when Theresa encounters a mysterious intruder, she begins to wonder what secrets the building is concealing.

Meanwhile Sally, an actress who fled the stage to live in quiet anonymity, has decided not to be involved. She's far too busy anyway, shepherding around a gaggle of A-listers, including a suave Russian with a superyacht and a penchant for her company.

As the razzmatazz of the Cannes Film Festival penetrates Bellevue-Sur-Mer, its inhabitants become entangled in a complex pattern of love triangles and conflicting business interests, and something starts to feel distinctly oeuf. Finding themselves knee-deep in suspicion and skullduggery, the restaurateurs realise they can no longer tell who's nasty and who's nice.

    "Another cracking yarn"

    An excellent yarn with just enough intrigue to stop it being altogether too 'nice'. I do like happy endings and I hope we shall hear more from the crew at Bellvue sur Mer.

    "A really happy book"

    Narrated by Celia Imrie I enjoyed every minute of this book.
    The characters are easily identified as being at a crossroads which 60 somethings can identify with. Uplifting.

    Story
    "2 dimensional"

    Really disappointed in this. It was full of cliches and a really poor and unrealistic story based on unrealistic premise. Weak characters with no depth or reality and most of all weak dialogue. Such a shame as I had expected more.

    "A superb sequel"

    A lovely continuation of the mismatched expat group - they almost feel like old friends. Celia Imrie's narration brings her characters to life with a warmth that can only be afforded by the author.
    Thoroughly good fun!
