“An uplifting coming of age story for the mid-life crisis generation.”
Eric Sibley has it all; great job, big house, beautiful family. Even when his estranged father dies, Eric can’t help but dream about the luxuries he’ll spend his inheritance on. Unfortunately, Eric’s late father, had other ideas.
Life quickly becomes a chaotic kaleidoscope of grumpy pensioners, wellington boots and vintage automobiles as Eric is forced to juggle his hectic career and family life in London, with regular visits to the small riverside town of Burlam.
Plagued by heavy machinery mishaps, missed deadlines and drug raids, it’s not long before his job, his marriage and his sanity are hanging in the balance. Will he get his hands on his father’s treasured Aston Martin before he loses all three?
Peas, Carrots and an Aston Martin is the first book in the delightfully funny new series from the award-winning author of The Afterlife of Walter Augustus. This quintessentially British novel will have you laughing and crying until the very end.
This sounded like such a fun read when I came across it and having read it, I can honestly say it was.
Eric could be any of us. There was so much that I could relate to with him, with juggling work and family life with quality time spent with family keeping on getting pushed further down the line. This is a story that will really make you re-evaluate your life.
To be honest, with not being green fingered, allotments are something that doesn’t interest me at all. There are a great set of characters though that are down there that make for some fun and heartfelt reading. Especially Norman and Cynthia. A lot of the action takes place there and in parts had me chuckling so much.
Peas, Carrots and an Aston Martin really is a story that could change your life. It makes you realise what really is important in life but in a light hearted way. This was such a fun and entertaining read and so glad to see it is part of a series as I definitely want to read more. An endearing read that will put a smile on your face and warmth in your heart.
