About the Author

Victoria Twead is a New York Times bestselling author.

In 2004 Victoria nagged poor, long-suffering Joe into leaving Britain and relocating to a tiny, remote mountain village in Andalucía where they became reluctant chicken farmers and owned the most dangerous cockerel in Spain. Village life inspired Victoria's first book, Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools, which was quickly followed by more, all of which fast became Amazon bestsellers.

Victoria and Joe continue to enjoy life keeping chickens, writing, helping authors publish their books, sampling the local wine and living alongside their colourful neighbours.

Book 2 in the "Old Fools" series continues the light hearted and charming tales of Vicki and her husband as they continue to settle in to their new life in Spain.

Once again Victoria Twead has enchanted us with a wonderful romp through the life and times of living in the small village of El Hoyo, Spain with her husband Joe.

Just like her first book 'Chickens Mules and Two Old Fools' Victoria Twead shares with us funny experiences, beautiful stories, interesting traditions and the trials and tribulations of living in very different country. This time each chapter is laced with relevant photo's, so that you feel that you are there with them during this journey. Like you are part of their lives.

I carried this book on the train with me everyday reading on my commute to and from work - often laughing out loud during my travels.

It was wonderful to once again touch base with quirky characters from the small village of El Hoyo and also to meet new ones. Thoroughly entertaining.

So glad to read at the end of this book that there is more to come in this "Old Fools" series.

5 huge big stars from me.

This book is much more than the continuation of Vicky's and Joe's adventures in Spain but rather an opportunity to fall in love all over again with an amazing cast of characters in a small Spanish village.

I really enjoyed getting to "meet" the newest members of the village and even more to find that those I had come to care about (these are real people not fictional characters) were still alive and well even though aging.

I am a dog, horse and now alpaca person but through the eyes of this author I have even come to respect chickens (I was attacked by a goose as a kid and none to fond of birds) and the tenacity and spirit of cats.

I had more opportunity to absorb both the Spanish countryside as well everyday life of El Hoyo. I have to admit to some bouts of jealousy at the wonderful home that Joe and Vicky have fashioned out of crumbling walls and centuries old construction.

PS...sure am glad Amazon lets me edit.....I have forgotten to mention that both this book and the original in the series, are also wonderful cookbooks. Having spent a big chunk of my childhood and young adulthood I am a real fan of Spanish cooking. Not only is Spanish cooking very different from Mexican cooking it is also different between regions in Spain. I have already made several of these dishes and they are easy, delicious and a great example of southern Spanish cooking.

I look forward to the next book in this series which promises to be quite different as it involves a year in Bahrain and the search for camels....but I fervently hope that the author will again take up pencil and paper and continue this amazing story of life in Spain.

Victoria Twead is a great author. These books are a pure delight. The author just brings you right into the little village of El Joyo. I feel as though I am right in the middle of the adventures of Miss Veeky and Tio Joe. She has a gift for writing!!

As a fan of other "living in a new country" authors such as Peter Mayle and Francis Mayes, I very much enjoyed Vicky's (or "Beeky" as the mayor called her) recounting of their adventures in a small mountain town in Spain. Getting to know the neighbors, the rhythm of life, the foods, the quirkiness of tv and phone reception was a pleasure thanks to Twead's ability to draw us in to her new life. Que bueno!! Gracias a Beeky!

I enjoyed the first book in this series, despite a few glaring grammatical errors and it not really being the quality you'd expect of a "real" book - it was fun and easy to read. This one though felt as though the writer had run out of things to say and was just trying to desperately fill the pages to get another book out for the sake of getting another book out. I enjoyed some of the cute kitten stories but it was a struggle to maintain interest to get through the book. Several pages were filled with emails just copied and pasted in that added nothing to the narrative - such as someone emailing to ask if they could come to stay, emailing back to suggest dates, emailing back to confirm dates, are you still coming, yes we are do you need us to bring anything, no we don't need anything, are you still coming etc etc. What felt like dozens of pages of this stuff, the message of which could have been delivered in single sentence. Or not at all. In the end, the visit - which you would expect to be something out of the ordinary from the amount of preamble - ended up lasting a day, was spent at a theme park and was done in a couple of pages and didn't seem to add anything to the story at all. There was little about the culture or the people, and no real connected, consistent narrative. I would recommend the first book as a bit of fun, if you are not too discriminating a reader, but I wouldn't recommend this one at all.

Since i read the first book I have felt personally involved in their lives. I have lived in
Spain and their experiences are so real. It makes me feel as though I am there . If it were not for my family living so far away, we too, would be living in Spain. So easy too read and enjoy.

I didn't think this one was quite as interesting as "Chickens..." but it was still pretty good.
As an American, the "Britishisms" are sometimes charming and sometimes frustrating.
It certainly took Vicky a LONG time to get around to asking her husband what was bothering him! Geez!
My 88 year old Mom is enjoying their adventures, too.
