Once the hideaway of artists and writers, Bellevue-Sur-Mer is now home to the odd movie star and, as Theresa discovers, a close-knit set of expats. Settling to the gentle rhythm of the seaside, Theresa embraces her new-found friendships and freedom.

Not Quite Nice Press Reviews

'A hugely enjoyable romp of a novel with eccentric characters, a delightful background and a savoury tang of crime' Katie Fforde

'A warm, light-hearted, fast-paced tale that fans of Peter Mayle will enjoy' Joanne Harris

'A very witty novel by a very witty woman. Hugely entertaining' Julian Fellowes

'Utterly delicious in every way' Joanna Lumley

'A sunny, funny debut novel ... a keenly observed, rollicking tale of mature expats reinventing themselves on the French Riviera' Mail on Sunday

'This debut from national treasure actress Celia perfectly captures the colour of ex-pat life and the glitz and glamour of the South of France. A shaft of early summer sunshine, a funny, spirited read' Daily Mail

'It's lots of fun, with adventure at a certain age as its driving force, and sun-kissed recipes as chapter breaks' Sainsbury's Magazine
