After deciding she's fed up with city life, Melanie embarks on a journey to southwest France with just a suitcase full of optimism and not a little bit of naiveté

After one particularly bad day at work, advertising executive and confirmed city girl Melanie Jones decides to give up her old life in search of something new and simpler in southwest France. She has little knowledge of the country, even less of the language, and just the memory of a disastrous school French exchange and a few day trips to Calaisy. Still, how different can life in France be? After a series of adventures with skirt-ripping tractors, handsome twin farmers, celebrity not-quite-beens, unusual toilets, and a bonkers ex-pat community, all topped up, of course, with lashings of rosé, Melanie begins to discover that her new life in France isn’t quite what she’d thought it would be.
