Forced into early retirement, fed up with babysitting her bossy daughters obnoxious children, she sells her Highgate house and moves to the picture-perfect town of Bellevue-sur-Mer, just outside Nice.With its beautiful villas, its bustling cafes and shimmering cerulean sea, the village sparkles like a diamond on the French Mediterranean coast. Once the hideaway of artists and writers, it is now home to the odd rock icon and Hollywood movie star, and, as Theresa soon discovers, a close-knit set of expats. Theres Carol, the infinitely glamorous American and her doting husband David- the erstwhile British TV star Sally- the ferocious Sian and her wayward Australian poet husband- the sharply witty Zoe with her strangely youthful face and penchant for white wine – and the suave Brian who catches Theresas eye.As Theresa settles to the gentle rhythm of seaside life she embraces her new-found friendships and freedom. However, life is never quite as simple as it seems and as skeletons start to fall out of several closets, Theresa begins to wonder if life on the French Riviera is quite as nice as it first appeared.
