Everyone needs a good laugh now and then and you will find that in this book. I had a fun time with it! Along the lines of a contemporary Wodehouse, it is just a really enjoyable read.
Jason Barnes is a perennial screw-up. When his aunt dies and leaves him a French vineyard, he has a problem. He can only inherit it if he isn't in trouble with the law, which his ex-stepbrother makes sure he is. It turns into a mad romp in the French vineyards with nuns and beautiful French women and lawyers in disguise. I won't recount the plot here, you can see that above.
This is a comic novel with a lot of heart. It's clever and has a few unexpected twists. The characters are fun and likeable. The writing is excellent. You feel yourself in the hands of a very talented wordsmith. Very fun!
I received this from the Librarything Early Readers program in exchange for an honest review.
