''Entertaining French farce featuring a mostly-English cast, '' By Swizzlestick
This is a refreshingly honest account of what happens in many ex-pat societies, how they still drive English registered cars despite being in France for years, work on the black and skirt about the law, running unregistered B&B's These are things you don't hear about too much in the rose tinted glasses, stories that pander to those who dream of an idyllic life in France.
A fun entertaining read that wouldn't go a miss as a TV series, hurry up with the sequel! ''

From the Back Cover
I live in France and expected a very light superficial read. Well, I have to say I was in for a surprise. It wasn't long before I was so absorbed in Vantastic France.
There are a lot of light hearted fun moments in the book, but it is also a very honest and a real narrative about what living in France is really like for English ex pats (of which I am one, in Brittany, where the story is set) and for the Breton people who have to put up with us!
Vantastic France is however much more than the above. It is also a very moving story properly constructed, which deals with issues such as loyalty, snobbery, family secrets and difficulties in second-time-round relationships and step parenting.
This is not just a book for ex-pats living in France, it is a heart-warming story about real people that leaves the reader wanting more.
