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.
