    Reading the first 'Sell The Pig' book, I found someone who was quite a brave, feisty woman, who virtually single-handedly completed a house move to the beautiful Auvergne region of France, along with her elderly mother who suffered from vascular dementia, an alcoholic brother and an old dog. The second and third books in the series continue the interesting story and I'm quite sad that this will be the last book of the series. Tottie aka Lesley Krier Tither, (L M Krier for the excellent DI Ted Dar Reading the first 'Sell The Pig' book, I found someone who was quite a brave, feisty woman, who virtually single-handedly completed a house move to the beautiful Auvergne region of France, along with her elderly mother who suffered from vascular dementia, an alcoholic brother and an old dog. The second and third books in the series continue the interesting story and I'm quite sad that this will be the last book of the series. Tottie aka Lesley Krier Tither, (L M Krier for the excellent DI Ted Darling crime fiction novels) does not poke fun at the French locals, nor does she just stick to a group of ex-pat friends. She embraces the people and  local culture and language, is fluent in French and now has dual British and French nationality. The books are full of examples of the notorious French red tape experienced by anyone who decides to live in France full time, or purchases a property there, and should be read by those contemplating such a move. Meanwhile, this remarkable, tough, but accident prone lady, who now lives alone in her 'grottage' and continues to survive through her own endeavours, as ecologically as possible, with a fantastic sense of humour and her lovely faithful companions - her dogs. What's not to like! Hopefully, there will be more. Perhaps friends and fans might persuade Tottie to continue. I understand that there might be a prequel which should make very interesting reading indeed.

    This is the fourth and final book in the Sell the Pig Trilogy .I know! But the reason is made clear in the book as is an explanation of the intriguing title.

But the reason is made clear in the book as is an explanation of the intriguing title. For those of us who loved the first three memoirs this is another chance to settle down comfortably and enjoy another chat with Tottie. She has definitely settled in her ‘grottage’ and we learn of her continuing battles with the formidable French bureaucracy as she endeavours to get her ‘carte vitale’ Retirement for Tottie means taking up a new set of challenges and life is most certainly never dull. We travel with her to many of the fascinating and beautiful spots in the Auvergne area and she comes up with the idea of ‘Tottie’s Tours’ She is extraordinarily resourceful and is willing to turn her hand to any project even though she describes herself as accident prone. Loft conversion, wild camping, driving with her eyes shut... anecdotes told with great humour and some superb description. She has mastered the knack of conversational writing which draws the reader right in. Interestingly she describes how the idea of her detective Ted Darling was born. I’m really looking forward to reading that series. Sadly though this will be the last of the memoirs but you never know. A well deserved five stars from me.

    Goodbye Pig! Just finished reading the fourth book in the Sell the Pig trilogy and it was as good as the first three. I shall miss hearing about Tottie's dogs and her wild camping adventures. I found myself laughing out loud at some of them, and feeling her pain of losing Ci. I very much enjoy her sense of humor and writing style and I am looking forward to reading her detective series. It definitely was worth it! Goodbye Pig! Just finished reading the fourth book in the Sell the Pig trilogy and it was as good as the first three.
