Peas, Carrots and an Aston Martin

Front Cover
Hannah Lynn, Oct 3, 2018 - Fiction - 250 pages

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

In this witty and humorous novel, Londoner Eric Sibley discovers his only inheritance is his father’s classic car — with one rather major string attached. 

Life quickly becomes a chaotic kaleidoscope of heavy machinery mishaps, missed deadlines and grumpy pensioners as Eric is forced to juggle his hectic career and family life with regular visits to the small riverside town of Burlam. It’s not long before his job, his marriage and his sanity are hanging in the balance. Can he claim his prize before he loses all three?

Peas, Carrots and an Aston Martin is the first book in the delightfully funny Peas and Carrots 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.

Peas, Carrots and an Aston Martin was also a finalist of the 2018 Wishing Shelf Book Award
