Product Description

Product Description

*New York Times bestselling author*



Never believe that life in a tiny Spanish mountain village is predictable. Vicky and Joe have finished fixing up their house and look forward to peaceful days enjoying their retirement. Then the fish van arrives, and instead of delivering fresh fish, disgorges the Ufarte family. The peace of El Hoyo is shattered.



In this, the second of the Old Fools series, Vicky and Joe are catapulted (and 'cat' is the operative word) into more bizarre situations and scrapes. Surrounded by the same cast of eccentric characters introduced in 'Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools', the two old fools muddle through until they are forced into making a life-changing decision.



Packed with badly behaved humans and animals, irreverent humour and sunshine, 'Two Old Fools - Olé!' will make you laugh out loud, while the mouth-watering Spanish recipes will have you reaching for your saucepan.



"Andalucia as it's never been done before - a very quirky, funny and enjoyable tale - loved the subtle humour, Olé!"

Karen Wheeler, author of 'Tout Sweet: Hanging Up My Heels For A New Life In France.'



"I absolutely loved it! Funny, honest and impossible to put down." Justin Aldridge, Eye on Spain.com

About the Author

Victoria Twead nagged her long-suffering partner, Joe, into moving from England to Spain in 2004. They settled into a tiny mountain village in Andalucía, became reluctant chicken farmers and ended up owning probably the most dangerous cockerel in Spain. Victoria's hilarious record of their culture shock and life with the villagers is told in her books, 'Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools' and 'Two Old Fools - Olé!'

Victoria currently shares her garden with six elderly chickens and two feral cats, and her house with Joe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spain through Brit's eyes - hilarious!!! 24 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
'Spain is different' we, spaniards, always say. Vicky and Joe moved to Spain and now Vicky shares their funny daily anecdotes and seeing Spain through brit's eyes is just hilarious. When you read Two old fools, you realise what makes life in Spain so unique: every excuse is good to get together and share some food, drink, music,... Neighbours help each other, they will share everything they have or help you carry your wood inside with a smile and they will also burden you with unexpected babysitting witout even asking. Tradition and folklore, fiesta and siesta, that's just how we are and we think everyone is like us!. I cannot even decide what made me laugh the most: cats stealing ladies underwear and Joe having to give those back, grape puffing in the nude with a clamoring and unexpected public, Fifi, Mother's 'tomato' plants, trying to catch cats and trapping everything but felines ... I could name a thousand more. With an even mix of photos, stories and delicious spanish recipies, OLE is a perfectly balanced story. Worthy sequel to Chicken, mules and two old fools, I cannot wait to read Two old fools on a camel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, as I knew it would be! 22 Oct 2011

Once again a five star review from me. This lady has the ability to draw you into her life and make you believe you live there and know all her friends and neighbours. I actually feel like I know her personally, which of course I don't! You laugh out loud and feel a little sad at times, and you just cannot put the book down. I just cannot wait for the next instalment, it cannot come soon enough for me. If I could give this book 6 stars I would!

If you're feeling exhausted, depressed by world events and rising prices, then you could do no better than reach for Victoria Twead's new book! This latest offering will soon have you giggling and forgetting all your troubles. Tip the tonic wine and the anti-depressants away - all you need is TOF - O to bring the smile back to your face :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars A break from reality that leads to another... 19 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading and enjoying the original book I can't tell you how excited I was to finally get my hands on the sequel! The best thing about this book is that it's just as good, if not better, than the original. As I sat and read it I felt I was a ghost shadowing Vicky & Joe on their adventures, both funny and enlightening with the narrative that makes you feel as though you are there.
Characters met in the first book are still here and more amusing tales with them involved but also a whole new range of characters who bring El Hoyo to life, right in front of your eyes.
This should be made into a television series...Duty Free for the 21st century!! Highly recommended book that comes with the talent of not being able to put it down!

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad she wrote again! 8 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was pretty devestated when I came to the end of Victoria Tweeds first book, so I was delighted when I found she had written another. Again we are treated to all the high's and lows of life in Spain from an ex-pat's experience. Traditional festivals, new neighbours, hilarious happenings, more pets and lovley pictures. This book was quite emotional as it appears Tweed get very attatched to the village cats and as we go on her journey you also become attatched to them too. I mourned the losses and triumphed at the found. Aagin I read this at a gallop and sped through it like no other book I have ever read. It's a story very close to my heart as my own family emigrated to France some years ago and I wish they had written down all thier adventures! I am so looking forward to the next installment, where the Tweeds travel to another part of the world to begin yet another adventure. I can't wait!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars It felt like Christmas in the sunshine 31 Dec 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a bargain. For £3.50 a warm sunshine filled tale of the soap-like story of life in the mountains of Andalucia in southern Spain. Brilliantly written, full of humour and drama. A taste of real Spain a long way from the Costas. I just could not put this story down and read it all over Christmas. It's the sort of book you can read a second time and still get enjoyment from it. I will be looking forward to Victoria's third story. Highly recomended

5.0 out of 5 stars FAB FAB FAB FAB FAB 2 Nov 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well Victoria, you have done it again. Another well written, laugh out loud account of life in Spain. I love all the characters and for a quiet remote part of Spain, the stories of all the neighbours, friends etc make it sound like a place that is full of life. I can't wait for the next instalment. x
