Divorced and on a deadline, bestselling novelist Bea Pinkerton has a serious case of writer’s block. With her agent breathing down her neck, Bea will do ANYTHING to avoid writing another word.
So an invite to a reunion with her old school friends at a beautiful chateau in France, is Bea’s perfect chance to escape. Surely here, relaxing with old friends and drinking cold fizz, Bea will find inspiration?
But as soon as Bea arrives, she realises this is not going to be the peaceful getaway she anticipated. Her old school friends Gin and Audrie are in various states of marital distress and to top it off a camera crew has arrived to film the goings on at Chateau De St Cyr. Far from being calm, the trip is total chaos!
Thank goodness for Bea’s new French neighbour Laurent Sinclair – handsome, charming and perhaps exactly the romantic muse she needs to get her mojo back.
But is Bea brave enough to take a second chance at love at her age?
Perhaps with a little help from her friends…
Escape to the Chateau for another laugh-out-loud feel-good adventure with the #1 bestselling author of The Old Ducks’ Club!
Maddie Please is an author who can do no wrong for me. I simply adore her books and her latest is no exception!
Bea is a sixty year old author who has lost her mojo. She is hoping a trip to meet up with two friends in France, will help give her a much needed boost. As with all this authors books, the settings are so dreamy and will have you wanting to book a trip away as soon as possible! Of course it would also help if you had a friend that has renovated and owns a chateau!
Through Bea we get to see that life certainly is far from over at sixty. There is still so much possibility and lots to live for. I think when we are younger, we envision life being over by that age but when you start edging closer, you still very much feel like a twenty something in your head and have hopes and dreams. I loved Bea’s character and knowing all her thoughts. The blossoming friendship between her and Laurent especially made me smile as it felt like being a teenager again and I couldn’t help but get caught up in all the chemistry.
Old Friends Reunited is the perfect pick me up. I can’t help but devour this author’s novels as once I start, they are far to addictive to put back down again. It has everything that I love about this genre and was a highly entertaining read that never fails to leave me on a high. A book that is guaranteed to brighten any readers day!
My thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for an invite to be part of the tour. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
