Publisher's Summary

People come to France to reinvent themselves....

Mia and Ben, an Australian couple in their early 30s, have relinquished one dream and embraced another, selling their Sydney flat and purchasing an old yellow house in the picturesque village of Cordes-sur-Ciel in southwest France. 

They soon meet sophisticated neighbours Dominic and Susannah, a British couple in their 60s who welcome them warmly but whose own relationship is in crisis. Mia and Ben are immediately starstruck and impressed by their lavish hospitality. However, things with Dominic and Susannah are not what they first seem. 

Gradually secrets begin to surface, revealing details of a scandal Dominic and Susannah had hoped to leave behind in London. Reeling from these revelations, Mia and Ben no longer trust their own instincts, and the peaceful idyll of their French life begins to unravel. Can Dominic and Susannah escape each other, and can Ben and Mia they find their way back to each other and the dream they shared?

An intoxicating and hugely entertaining domestic drama by the best-selling author of The French Perfumer.

Enjoyable read

I thought the narration was really well done. It would not be easy trying to simulate British expats in France as well as Australians - particularly Australians attempting to learn French (which was spot-on I'm sorry to say). The story was a good one. My only slight problem was that it climaxed rather late in the book and then the wrap-up was a bit too quick and neat. Overall I enjoyed the book but it's not one I'm going to tell my friends is a 'must read' (or 'must listen' in this case).
