Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

What a fun and inspirational read – Sisters Behaving Badly by Maddie Please – absolutely great!!

Sisters Kitty and Jenny haven’t spoken since a very disappointing Carvery lunch. Kitty, sixty-two, thinks Jenny is turning grey. Jenny, sixty-six, thinks Kitty needs to grow up!

So when both sisters inherit a farmhouse in rural France, it gives them the perfect chance to heal the rift between them. Except the farmhouse is a wreck, the garden is terrorized by a flock of chickens, not to mention a donkey with a serious flatulence problem!

Kitty is determined to enjoy herself, especially when she meets gorgeous French builder, Leo. Ooh la – la! And Jenny finds the fully stocked wine cellar helps enormously with missing horrible husband Paul – hic!

And as the two sisters begin to repair their fragile friendship, they discover that being bad is actually very good for the soul.

My Review:

Take two sisters in their sixties, who haven't spoken for years
And have them travel together to France - will it all end in tears?
They're going to restore the farmhouse that was their Aunt's
Will they also restore their relationship now they have the chance?

With French builders and gardeners, and lots of mess, too,
To restore the property these women have lots to do!
But living together proves they're still sisters at heart
And taking chances, having fun is perhaps the best part!

What a fun read this story really proves
That age is no barrier to getting into new grooves.
A fun story with family and relationships at its heart
Will this adventure in France give them all a fresh start?

A chance to reevaluate what you want and what you've achieved
Can help making new choices just what you really need.
I also learnt some more French phrases, some colourful ones, too,
And enjoyed virtually visiting the places and people - so would you!

It is an inspirational read that shows it is never too late
To change your expectations and take new steps to change your fate.
I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into my complementary copy of this book
And hope this, my honest review, also encourages you to take a look.

    It definitely encourages me to take a look, it sounds wonderful. Three things I love, mature characters, estranged family and travel. Wonderful review Elaine.
