Last Tango in Carcassonne
Lying in a hospital bed, Serena wonders ‘How the hell did I get here?
And where would life have taken her, if she hadn’t met and married Randolph, a mysterious half-Russian gentleman farmer?
Certainly not to a magnificent Maison de Maître near Carcassonne, or to a scorching hot hillside where she witnesses a young man’s untimely death. Fending off English bailiffs and French huissiers, Serena staggers from one financial crisis to another
as Randolph refuses to face up to their problems.
As Serena fights to keep a roof over her children’s heads she is forced to deal with French officialdom and a legal system she doesn’t understand and can never hope to conquer.
Slowly, the dream of the good life turns into a never-ending nightmare which leaves Serena alone, sleeping in an attic and virtually penniless.
Disentangling herself from this past was never going to be straightforward…
Last Tango in Carcassonne is a refreshingly different debut novel which will make you laugh, wince and cry.
