Overview

(Colour edition, sequel to 'Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools'.)

Never believe that life in a tiny Spanish mountain village is predictable. Vicky and Joe have finished fixing up their house and look forward to peaceful days enjoying their retirement. Then the fish van arrives, and instead of delivering fresh fish, disgorges the Ufarte family. The peace of El Hoyo is shattered.

In this, the second of the ‘Two Old Fools’ series, Vicky and Joe are catapulted (and ‘cat’ is the operative word) into more bizarre situations and scrapes. Surrounded by the same cast of eccentric characters introduced in 'Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools', the two old fools muddle through until they are forced into making a life-changing decision.

Packed with badly behaved humans and animals, irreverent humour and sunshine, 'Two Old Fools - Olé!' will make you laugh out loud, while the mouth-watering Spanish recipes will have you reaching for your saucepan.

“Andalucía as it’s never been done before - a very quirky, funny and enjoyable tale - loved the subtle humour, Olé!”
Karen Wheeler, author of 'Tout Sweet: Hanging Up My Heels For A New Life In France.'

"I absolutely loved it! Funny, honest and impossible to put down." Justin Aldridge, Eye on Spain

Meet the Author

I nagged poor Joe into moving from England to Spain in 2004. We settled into a tiny mountain village in Andalucía, became reluctant chicken farmers and ended up owning probably the most dangerous cockerel in Spain.

Our story is told in The Old Fools Trilogy:
1. Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools
2. Two Old Fools ~ Olé!
3. Two Old Fools on a Camel (NYT Bestseller)

"Chickens" became an Amazon Top 100 Bestseller, and remained so for four months.

    Sequels are often a let down - after months of eager anticipation - but not so in this case.
    Victoria Twead continues to enchant us with both familiar and new characters both human and animal.
    Victoria weaves her characters into the rich tapestry of life in 'El Hoyo'.  From traditional celebrations to
    kleptomaniac kittens, an opportunistic mayor to a demonic dog all come together in a grand 'olé!'

    Naughty Twead

    Mrs Victoria Twead is a naughty girl !! Since I found these books, I have neglected other things I need to do. On the positive side, I pick grandkids up after school and I'm never late because I leave an hour early so I can read uninterrupted. I can't remember the last book that I have enjoyed as much as these " Ole Fools ".
