'Maddie Please's latest novel 'Sisters Behaving Badly' is a glorious romp that readers will adore. It's a story of quarrelsome siblings, second chances, a fabulous location and growing old disgracefully. Maddie's warmth and humour will put a smile on your face and leave you relishing Kitty and Jenny's hilarious adventures in a French farmhouse' Bestselling author Judy Leigh.

Sisters Kitty and Jenny haven’t spoken since a very disappointing Carvery lunch. Kitty, sixty-two, thinks Jenny is turning grey. Jenny, sixty-six, thinks Kitty needs to grow up!

So when both sisters inherit a farmhouse in rural France, it gives them the perfect chance to heal the rift between them. Except the farmhouse is a wreck, the garden is terrorized by a flock of chickens, not to mention a donkey with a serious flatulence problem!

Kitty is determined to enjoy herself, especially when she meets gorgeous French builder, Leo. Ooh la – la! And Jenny finds the fully stocked wine cellar helps enormously with missing horrible husband Paul – hic!

And as the two sisters begin to repair their fragile friendship, they discover that being bad is actually very good for the soul.

My Review:

Sisters Behaving Badly by Maddie Please was a delightful surprise for me.  I enjoyed the humor as well as the beautiful setting in France.  This book is about second chances and sisterly relationships.  

Kitty and Jenny are sisters, both in their sixties, who have not spoken to each other in several years.  The story starts as they meet at the ferry to travel to France to go and fix up their inheritance, a lovely farmhouse in rural France, that their Aunt Susan used to live in.  

This book is all about relationships with a whole lot of humor written in.  The book is written from Kitty’s point of view, and the writing is full of her humor and optimistic look at life.  I loved all the side characters and the farm animals!  The descriptions of the charming farmhouse in rural France were lovely and made me want to sit in the garden with the sisters and sip wine and eat cheese with them.  

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves books about sisters and relationships.  I received a complimentary copy of this book.  The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
