This is the third and final volume of a trilogy. The first two were 'Sanctuary' and then 'Repercussions'. Ben Coverdale sees his love life take a nose dive when the chick he is enamored of leaves him to take up with some dude named Donald. So Ben goes to the Loire Valley in France, and buys an old cottage which he restores and is hoping for a peaceful life.

This is the first book written by Glyn Smith - Wild I have read. It hints nicely at the proceeding 2 books, but stands alone. It is a comfortable light read, with not too much violence and a great quirky twist near the end.
It is a mystery thriller, but with not too much suspense and the romance angle is interesting.
The French link I loved, as I too live in France, not the same region, but the comments about lunches, the law and local administration was spot on.

This is the third of the Ben Coverdale books. Ben's life and romantic interests are entwined with three women, Mary the mother of his child, Alex and their two friends Katie and Georgina. Unfortunately although living in a beautiful part of France they seem unable to escape from Mary's past encounter with Donald. Romantic twists and an involved criminal plot.

I’m a British novelist. I was born in a large army camp in Yorkshire. My father spent thirty four years of his life in the Royal Tank Regiment, and he happened to be stationed in Catterick when I made my entrance.

Most of my formative years were spent in London where I attended Emanuel School which was much too good a school, and was utterly wasted on me much to my father’s chagrin. ...more
