Summary

Sisters Kitty and Jenny haven’t spoken since a very disappointing Carvery lunch. Kitty, 62, thinks Jenny is turning grey. Jenny, 66, thinks Kitty needs to grow up!

So when both sisters inherit a farmhouse in rural France, it gives them the perfect chance to heal the rift between them. Except the farmhouse is a wreck, the garden is terrorised by a flock of chickens, not to mention a donkey with a serious flatulence problem!

Kitty is determined to enjoy herself, especially when she meets gorgeous French builder Leo. Ooh la-la! And Jenny finds the fully stocked wine cellar helps enormously with missing horrible husband Paul - hic!

And as the two sisters begin to repair their fragile friendship, they discover that being bad is actually very good for the soul.

Critic reviews

"Maddie Please's latest novel Sisters Behaving Badly is a glorious romp that readers will adore. It's a story of quarrelsome siblings, second chances, a fabulous location and growing old disgracefully. Maddie's warmth and humour will put a smile on your face and leave you relishing Kitty and Jenny's hilarious adventures in a French farmhouse." (Judy Leigh, best-selling author)

Great tale

Loving sisters falling out how very true to life. I wouldn't like to spoil the tale for another reader. They made me laugh as well as feel their pain.

Good but ….

So I might be a bit critical here, but it was a little burning if I’m honest.
Good book, well written and good narrator, but still a little boring. Why on earth were they going on about the wine chateau names on the bottle…? (And I’m a massive wine snob) but there was just no need.
Ohh well … to be honest it is a great bed time listen for this reason.

loved it

I loved this book. I laughed and cried out loud at different points, recognising myself in some of kitty's life story .. it's full of love, loss, resentment, forgiveness and learning to understand a siblings view of life, both growing up and as an adult and it's not always as it appears. The Narrator was great and brought the characters to life, I look forward to more books

Enjoyed the story very much. The narration was good. A few dodgy french accents but that was good too.

Comfortable

A very predictable story, but well written and one that wraps you up and gives you a hug. Thoroughly enjoyable listen, and good narration.

Sisters behaving badly .

I thoroughly enjoyed listening . A bit cheesy , corny and obvious but a great bit of escapism.
Beautifully written with real insight and humour into family life .
