When the weather started hinting at getting cool I reached for a book about living in Mexico. I keep thinking about the beach at Akumal, Mexico and how it looked when we were there in January. WANT TO GO BACK! So, I settled for...
1) Gringos in Paradise by Barry Golson. Retirees from back East decide to locate in a Mexican village. The book covers their move and the building of their home there. Very entertaining. Not near England though!
2) Boy meets Girl by Meg Cabot. Written unconventionally through emails, notes on napkins, texts and every other form of communication, it's a fun read. Amy has to fire someone and then she gets fired and along the way finds true love and revenge. Fun.
3)Revenge of the Middle-aged Woman by Elizabeth Buchan. Loved this book! A woman's husband of 25 years leaves her for her assistant and then she loses her job and home. After a bit of pity and introspection she gets it together and comes out better for it in the end. All set in England and would make a great movie!
4) England Have My Bones by T. H. White. Older book about life in England through the eyes of a gentleman of leisure. Flying, fishing, hunting are covered as well as his pet cats and snakes. It took me a while to get through the fishing chapters as I'm not a fisher woman but the rest was a delight and it definitely was all English!
