Reviews

Fun ... Her work has definite joie de vivre and a sunny, good-natured feel -- Wendy Holden * Daily Mail * A hugely enjoyable romp of a novel with eccentric characters, a delightful background and a savoury tang of crime -- Katie Fforde With its lively plot and eccentric characters, this is a light-hearted, fun read * Daily Express * A very witty novel by a very witty woman. Hugely entertaining -- Julian Fellowes A warm, light-hearted, fast-paced tale that fans of Peter Mayle will enjoy -- Joanne Harris Utterly delicious in every way -- Joanna Lumley A delicious piece of entertainment ... The characters are a hoot and their antics are hilarious; even better, Theresa is a fabulous cook and Imrie includes the recipes of her signature dishes * The Times * Wonderful and very amusing -- Helen Lederer * Good Housekeeping * Sunny, funny debut novel ... A keenly observed, rollicking tale of mature expats reinventing themselves on the French Riviera ... Quickfire dialogue and the strong characterisation * Mail on Sunday * In a delicious touch, the action is punctuated with recipes for the local dishes that are cooked by the characters so that readers can, if they wish, cook along with the action * Daily Telegraph * It's lots of fun, with adventure at a certain age as its driving force, and sun-kissed recipes * Sainsbury's Magazine * A comic caper set among the tangled lives of a group of expats in a southern French village * Observer * Fast-paced and refreshingly frill-free, the text keeps you on edge without the unnecessary embellishment. If you're not already on holiday reading this, it will make you want to pack your bags! * Best * Celia Imrie reveals herself to be a gifted novelist in the witty and engaging Not Quite Nice * Choice * A pacy, light-hearted romp around the Riviera ... Imrie is on a roll with her Nice stories: they're sharp, witty, with a nice plot twist and, like her recipes, leave you with an appetite for more * Scotland on Sunday * Imrie's portraits of expats are vivid * Mail on Sunday * Peppered with local dishes, the novels are as light and frothy as the iles flottantes with creme anglaise she gives a recipe for near the end of the first book * Guardian *
