Somewhere on the French Riviera, tucked between glitzy Monte Carlo and Cannes' red carpets, lies the pretty town of Bellevue-Sur-Mer. Sheltered from the glittering melee, it is home to many an expat - including an enterprising team who plan to open a new restaurant.Snapping up a local property and throwing themselves into preparations, Theresa, Carol, William and Benjamin's plans are proceeding unnervingly well. But when Theresa encounters a mysterious intruder, she begins to wonder what secrets the building is concealing.Meanwhile Sally, an actress who gave up the stage to live in quiet anonymity, has decided not to be involved. The famous Cannes Film Festival is on and she is far too busy entertaining unexpected visitors from her past, and an intriguingly handsome Russian.As the razzmatazz of the festival begins to spill over into Bellevue-Sur-Mer, its inhabitants become entangled in complex love triangles and conflicting business interests. With the race on to get the restaurant open in time, the gang find themselves knee-deep in skulduggery, and realise they can no longer tell who's nasty . and who's nice.

Fun . Her work has definite joie de vivre and a sunny, good-natured feel
A hugely enjoyable romp of a novel with eccentric characters, a delightful background and a savoury tang of crime
With its lively plot and eccentric characters, this is a light-hearted, fun read
A very witty novel by a very witty woman. Hugely entertaining
A warm, light-hearted, fast-paced tale that fans of Peter Mayle will enjoy
Utterly delicious in every way
A delicious piece of entertainment . The characters are a hoot and their antics are hilarious; even better, Theresa is a fabulous cook and Imrie includes the recipes of her signature dishes
Wonderful and very amusing
Sunny, funny debut novel . A keenly observed, rollicking tale of mature expats reinventing themselves on the French Riviera . Quickfire dialogue and the strong characterisation
In a delicious touch, the action is punctuated with recipes for the local dishes that are cooked by the characters so that readers can, if they wish, cook along with the action
It's lots of fun, with adventure at a certain age as its driving force, and sun-kissed recipes
A comic caper set among the tangled lives of a group of expats in a southern French village
Fast-paced and refreshingly frill-free, the text keeps you on edge without the unnecessary embellishment. If you're not already on holiday reading this, it will make you want to pack your bags!
Celia Imrie reveals herself to be a gifted novelist in the witty and engaging Not Quite Nice
A pacy, light-hearted romp around the Riviera . Imrie is on a roll with her Nice stories: they're sharp, witty, with a nice plot twist and, like her recipes, leave you with an appetite for more
Imrie's portraits of expats are vivid
Peppered with local dishes, the novels are as light and frothy as the îles flottantes with crème anglaise she gives a recipe for near the end of the first book
