Présentation de l'éditeur

The summer of 1979 was the best summer ever! Pretty, blonde and dangerously impetuous, Bev and Carol head for the sun, lucky beneficiaries of a generous university grant.
They are full of enthusiasm and the dazzling spirit of adventure that only seems possible when we are young. Essential swimwear is selected and Lipton’s vegetable oil is perfumed with patchouli for the perfect tan.
They end up in Argelès-sur-mer, on a campsite close to the coast and not far from the border with Spain. Every day brings new challenges: how to hold a meaningful conversation on a naturist beach, what to do about a precocious teenage stalker, how to transport a gallon of port on a moped… all of which they meet head-on, with dubious philosophy and irrepressible optimism.
'One Summer in France' is a humorous tale based on a three-month study break the author took as part of her languages degree course at Keele University in 1979.
‘Would you do it all again?’ asked Carol.
‘Like a shot!’ I said.
And I would.

Author's Note: There are three Bev and Carol adventures, which are all stand-alone books. For those who would like to know the order, here it is: 'One Summer in France', 'Bunny on a Bike' and 'Stranded in the Seychelles'.

Biographie de l'auteur

I started writing stories when I was a child, reading them to my sisters, who were generally quite demanding, wanting to know what happened next. They didn't like the idea of a cliffhanger! At school I soon realised that I wanted to specialise in literature and languages, which I went on to study at Keele university. Following that, I gained a PGCE at Queens' College Cambridge and took up teaching posts in Greece, Seychelles and finally at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge. Some years later, I moved to France with my husband and two youngest children, where I am now lucky enough to be able to write every day. I have several ebooks on Amazon which I will bring out as paperbacks this year. I have a number of works in progress. The next one to be published will be a collection of short stories. I already have one short story on Amazon ('Angels' - a metaphysical horror story by B. A. Spicer). I write in many genres, including humour, mystery, psychological drama and science fiction, but always with an eye for detail and a desire to create believable and complex characters.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 'One Summer in France'. An unputdownable book about an unforgettable holiday 11 février 2013
Par Roderick Craig Low - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
`One Summer in France' is one of those books of reminiscence that rewards the reader on so many counts. It comes across like a novel but is obviously an accurate first-hand recollection as well. It was written recently as a prequel to the very successful `Bunny on a Bike' but avoids the mistake of applying mature `wisdom' to the experiences of just post-teen years. It is, as a result, modern, funny, occasionally outrageous, atmospheric, nicely descriptive and very fast-moving. We travel with Bev as she obtains a grant to fund a trip to France as part of her university degree and, accompanied by her friend Carol, takes up residence at a camp site on the French Mediterranean coast near the Spanish border. Bev is undoubtedly very pretty - you don't graduate and end up working for the Bunny Club otherwise - and in no time she and Carol are having a string of hilarious adventures as they find their feet in the campsites, bars and beaches of southern France, fighting off men, dealing with their jealous partners and struggling with rented mopeds. Their visits to the nudist beach or over the border in pursuit of Salvador Dali are absolutely hilarious. But Bev Spicer is a highly intelligent observer of the human condition who does not exclude herself from her ironic and anatomical eye. The consequence is a story that I simply couldn't put down - it's a 'Laugh Out Loud' book with pure nostalgia lightly laid on the narrative and it is so very well written! I'm glad I read `One Summer in France' first. It will be a pleasure to take the story further in `Bunny on a Bike'.

Roderick Craig Low. Author of a number of books including, `Rewards and Dilemmas'.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 charming and delightful! 12 mai 2014
Par Meredith G. Schorr - Publié sur

If I could describe this book in one word, it would be "charming." Well, "charming" and "delightful" - I really enjoyed every word and I think, besides the author's writing style, what I liked the best was the dynamic between best friend's Bev and Carol. They played off each other perfectly and their bond was so strong and authentic. Reading this book made me long for being 20 years old - young, beautiful and free - with my entire adult life ahead of me. It was so refreshing to read this story about two young women who didn't take a single moment for granted. Although not much "happened" in the book and there wasn't much conflict, the journey was so utterly pleasant, humorous and touching that I have to give it 5 stars.

A very funny account of a 3 month holiday in France for two Uni. students in the '70's. Couldn't put it down. Well written with a great turn of phrase.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Captures the essence of being young with your whole life ahead of you. 20 avril 2014

Very enjoyable book. Although my experiences as a young woman were nothing like Bev and Carol's, the book captures the essence of being young and free with all of your life ahead of you. If I have one criticism, it was the amount of alcohol consumed. I hope it was an exaggeration for literary purposes. Otherwise it is great fun to read.

I loved this story and the writing style of the author. She really draws you in with a vivid picture and adds just the right amount of humor. Can't wait to read her follow up to this book.
