Peter Mayle returns to the familiar landscape of Provence to spin another tale revolving around wine, food, and sweet relationships basking in the sunshine. On the same day that Max is downsized from the London investment firm he hates, he inherits his uncle's French estate, complete with boutique vineyard. Of course, there are gentle obstacles and puzzles to be sorted out. For one thing, the wine is dreadful. Also, an unknown Californian cousin might have a claim to the estate. John Lee turns this somewhat unoriginal plot into a delightful trifle. His American, British, and French accents are excellent. Especially agreeable is the hint of amusement in Lee's voice--you can almost hear him wink. A.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
