A Nice Cup of Tea

We rated this book:


I am sure the genre of British retirees moving to the south of France has a name, but I am not sure what it is. Regardless, A Nice Cup of Tea manages to provide a suspenseful, entertaining tale while poking fun at British tourists in France. The story is centered on a group of British retirees who open a restaurant in the south of France as a second career of sorts. Due to several causes, the viability of the restaurant is threatened. The group must increase profitability or be forced to return to England. This pressure forces old behaviors and past histories to rise up, creating several subplots including a missing granddaughter, unpleasant previous colleagues, and a stalker. The author skillfully keeps things interesting, but not confusing. The setting of warm, sun-drenched beaches is described in detail, perfect for cold foggy days when the reader wishes to be transported. I highly recommend the book for a mental holiday.
