Three in a bed in the Med

From singing with locals in the Greek Islands, finding their hearts captured in Montefiascone, drinking far too much pink wine in Monaco and generally over-indulging all the way around the Mediterranean, award-winning Australian travel author Ann Rickard romps around the Med with her latest book, Three in a Bed in the Med, her sixth sizzling travel story.Three in a bed in the Med Cover new for promo
Ann, her long term husband Geoffrey and the flirtatious and abundantly endowed (and not shy about it) Amanda, owner of a beautiful 18th century property in the village of St. Maximin, set off around the Mediterranean to find the best, most glorious venues possible to take their famed and celebrated culinary travel tours. Previous tours of the South of France proved a runaway success so expansion of the tour empire was needed- pronto.
Somehow pronto turned in to pinot and work waned as the wine, and the evocative destinations work their magic with the two big blonde feisty ‘women of a certain age’ and their one courageous male escort.
When the three of them find themselves sharing a bed in some of the most gorgeous destinations in the world, things become a little too close and they begin to wonder if Geoffrey may well become short term, Amanda may indeed need to flirt a little less and can both a marriage and friendship survive when there are, indeed, three in a bed in the Med.  Say no more.
Rickard is an influential force in travel writing. The tempo is fast-paced, the tone rollicking and the plot never disappoints. She has a sharp eye for vivid detail and writes with wit, honesty and passion about places that feature in all our travel fantasies.
Her self-depreciating humour is frank, clever and concise. Descriptions are colourful, observations – wicked. The story is down right funny and the book is a scream.
