Cover Notes
Simon Shaw is forty-two, freshly divorced & tired. As he surveys the desolation of his former home in the wake of his ex wife, he yearns for a life free of complications. Like most advertising men he dreams of getting out, and like most advertising men he always find reasons to do nothing about it.

But somehow a short break in the warm seductive air of Provence quickly turns into something more. The enchanting Nicole makes him an offer he finds hard to refuse: an old gendarmerie with a beautiful view & massive potential - it would make the most superb hotel. Armed with his ex-chauffeur Ernest - a connoisseur of the niceties of a good flower arrangement - he transforms the Hotel Pastis, which gradually emerges to become a haven for the rich & famous.

But what are Jo-Jo & his jail-bird friends plotting every night in the local cafe over large amounts of the local fire-water? Perhaps rather than getting away from it all, Simon is only just beginning his mid-life crisis...
