Publisher's Summary

Somewhere on the French Riviera, tucked between glitzy Monte Carlo and Cannes' red carpets, lies the sleepy town of Bellevue-Sur-Mer. Sheltered from the glittering melee, it is home to many an expat - although it hasn't proved as peaceful as expected.
Now an enterprising band of retirees has resolved to show it's never too late to start afresh and open a restaurant. Snapping up a local property and throwing themselves into preparations, Theresa, Carol, William and Benjamin's plans are proceeding unnervingly well. But when Theresa encounters a mysterious intruder, she begins to wonder what secrets the building is concealing.
Meanwhile Sally, an actress who fled the stage to live in quiet anonymity, has decided not to be involved. She's far too busy anyway, shepherding around a gaggle of A-listers, including a suave Russian with a superyacht and a penchant for her company.
As the razzmatazz of the Cannes Film Festival penetrates Bellevue-Sur-Mer, its inhabitants become entangled in a complex pattern of love triangles and conflicting business interests, and something starts to feel distinctly oeuf. Finding themselves knee-deep in suspicion and skullduggery, the restaurateurs realise they can no longer tell who's nasty and who's nice.

Looking forward to more in the series

Any additional comments?

Delightful read, very entertaining with all of the plots and subplots that go on in each character's life and the celebrities and villains who descend upon this small town. It makes me want to move there myself and be a part of this interesting ex-pat community.

couldn't get through it

despite having listened to the 1st book in this short series, I struggled with this book and just couldn't keep going with it. storyline became too boring and the narration wasn't strong enough for me to keep me going. such a shame. I found the pauses in the storytelling just too annoying and it didn't have the flow.
