|Plot Summary of Hotel Pastis|
In his first novel, the PR man of Provence presents the story of a London ad exec who quits the business to open a small hotel in the south of France. There is romance in the form of a French woman, plenty of humor in the town's longtime inhabitants and various hotel guests (not to mention the hilarious scene where his old firm is trying to land a big condom account), and a subplot about a French gang's plan to rob a bank in a neighboring town which seems a bit superfluous and tacked-on but ties into the main plot quite handily toward the end. Delightful, and less fluffy (but still light-hearted) than it initially appears.
