The Folly of French Kissing : A Novel About Britain's Ex-pats in Southern France Paperback
by Carla McKay
After being innocently embroiled in a school scandal, teacher Judith Hay decides there is only one thing she can do and that is leave Britain.
The small village of Vevey in the Languedoc near Montpellier seems the perfect answer.
Life is cheap and the views are pretty. Vevey, however, may well be the French answer to St Mary's Mead - an abundance of vice and intrigue hides behind its pretty facades...Soon, she meets her fellow expats and something seems odd.
It appears that many escaped Britain for their own dark reasons rather than for the sunny climate.
Behind their sombre faces, even the French seem furtive and some still harbour Nazi secrets.
There is one local expat, in particular, Gerald, a writer of some fame, who makes her shudder.
If he is really as evil as she thinks he is, his plan hatched with a local Frenchman will need to be stopped...
