A Fun Summer Read

AGoodYear.jpg

This is a great, little book to to read if you just want to escape into a world of Provençal adventure filled with colorful local characters; detailed descriptions of food, wine, and vineyards; and harmless cloak-and-dagger intrigue as only Peter Mayle could concoct. To say more is to give something away as this is a book you can finish non-stop in just a few hours.

If you're always promising to yourself that you would finish reading at least one novel a year, then this is the book to start with. And, oh, may I suggest a nice glass of red Bordeaux to accompany it, as you will definitely work up a thirst flipping through the pages.

A Good Year by Peter Mayle. Published 2004 by Alfred A. Knopf. 287 pages.
