Overview

"An uplifting coming of age story for the mid-life crisis generation."

Eric Sibley has it all; great job, big house, beautiful family. Even when his estranged father dies, Eric can't help but dream about the luxuries he'll spend his inheritance on. Unfortunately, Eric's late father, had other ideas.
Life quickly becomes a chaotic kaleidoscope of grumpy pensioners, wellington boots and vintage automobiles as Eric is forced to juggle his hectic career and family life in London, with regular visits to the small riverside town of Burlam.
Plagued by heavy machinery mishaps, missed deadlines and drug raids, it's not long before his job, his marriage and his sanity are hanging in the balance. Will he get his hands on his father's treasured Aston Martin before he loses all three?

Peas, Carrots and an Aston Martin is the first book in the delightfully funny new series from the award-winning author of The Afterlife of Walter Augustus. This quintessentially British novel will have you laughing and crying until the very end.

I cant get interested in this book. At first I thought it the difference in usage of words. Such as "allotment" etc. having to puzzle out what are they talking about. Trying to get an image in my head. Im sorry its just too much work for wanting to just read a book. AKS

Really bad! It was stupid and pointless and the main character wasn't likable. Maybe it got better but I was so glad this garbage was free so I could dump it without feeling cheated.
