A fun, rollicking tale with an enchanted setting, the kind of book you want to share with your dearest friends. Don't miss this one! Cassandra King
Sparkles like fine champagne and feels like a Truffaut romantic comedy. Richard Goodman
A fun tale and a nice testament to Maeder's versatility. Miami Herald
Merci for taking me back to the deliciousness of Provence! I wish my first stay in France had been this delightfully wicked. Teresa Engebretsen, The Sabbatical Chef
Filled with gutsy good humor and fantastic characters that make you laugh out loud. Armchair travel at its best! The Country Bookshop
This wonderfully entertaining novel will have you booking that trip to France you've been promising yourself for years." Charles Salzberg
Just the sort of love story filled with food and funny bits that is perfect for a rainy summer afternoon or staying up into the wee hours to finish it (as I did last night). Mary Dalton, NPR's WFDD
Gobble up this rollicking romantic comedy, filled with scrumptious French food. O. Henry magazine
Take three quirky characters who go to extremesto either pursue love or avoid love. Add a dash of dysfunction. A pinch oflove. And a dollop of mystery. Marinate in a romantic setting. News & Record 

From the Author

The inspiration for Opposites Attack came in the summer of 2001 after I attended a total-immersion language school in Hyères, a heavenly part of France where Provence and the Côte d'Azur meet. I was only able to stay for two-weeks and as a result I entered speaking like a one-year-old and left speaking like I was two. But I found a delightful way to experience a new country, especially as a single woman. At the same time I was pondering why people sometimes end up with the opposite of what they say they want in a mate, and the converse--why do matches made in heaven turn incendiary? How far should you compromise when your love has enough baggage to fill a moving van? Can someone really change? When you have a child with someone you never married, is it possible to truly move on if you can't divorce? I was also trying to stop falling for unpredictable creative geniuses or stop expecting them to be "normal."

If this book inspires you to travel, take a cooking class, learn a new language, tout nouveau, tout beau! As for why it took so long to be published, when it was finally finished, an anti-France movement had erupted in America due to the war in Iraq. Remember Freedom fries and the boycotting of French wines? I reluctantly put the novel away in a digital drawer and, like a good daube, let it marinate. It is all the better for it.
