Go for it girls and boys !
Ducal's dry humour pervades all her work. She has a neat line in one liners that had me regularly chuckling. Clearly she has a deep affection for southern France and delights in sampling whatever is on offer. Ducal has her own view of life and had great observation skills - she invites you into her life and experiences. You want to know what happens to the central characters. Her book is a very good read and great value.
The writing is well crafted and apart from minor continuity problems reads well and the story flows. My wife also thoroughly enjoyed the book and we look forward to further stories from this promising new writer.
The job specification, Laura's tongue-in-cheek CV and her uncertain balance between excitement and apprehension at looking after the octogenarian are all stamped with a light-hearted and delightfully punchy style.
Pleasantly ensconced in Southern France, Laura's cheeky, sometimes self-effacing view of her new station in life is infectious - the feisty Laura, if heady, then pleasantly endearing.
As Betty 'threw her head back and laughed like a drain' we begin to see that, despite her 82 years, there's no foot in the grave for her either, and she is as vibrant as we could wish; for when Laura and Betty are put together as granny-sitter and granny, a delightfully volatile mix is set alight. Sheer fun, captured by seamlessly crafted writing.
