When Alice's gynaecologist husband leaves her for his nursing assistant, she's left homeless, heartbroken, the wrong side of forty and with no life skills to speak of. So she has nothing to lose, she figures, when she buys a tiny studio flat in a strange building called the Maison Puce, on the Cote d'Azur, and starts a new life in the South of France. But getting a new life and getting over it aren't as easy as she thinks. Especially when you're dealing with more than a broken heart - broken roof tiles, and a very broken French accent don't simplify matters, either...

In brief, the story of 4 women with apartments in the same house in France. While the resentments & camaraderie of close living worked okay it wasn't IMHO, the witty & riproaringly funny book that the cover promised. I didn't seem to get to know the characters in any great detail & in parts the humour seemed on the farcical side & not in keeping with the rest of the story. On the whole, nothing to get excited about.

Read as part of the 2011 ULTIMATE CHALLENGE (#74) - themed "BODY PARTS" read for June
