Aunt Lucie’s Legacy by Philippe Saimbert is an offbeat funny novel. The writing reminds me of Patrick Dennis (he wrote Auntie Mame). Aunt Lucie lived a very full life and when she passed away she left the majority of her money to her nephews. However, in order to inherit the money they have to follow the clues to find a turquoise necklace. Unfortunately, for the nephews, none of them are that bright or perceptive. It is a hilarious month as this motley crew hunts for the treasure in the Pyrenees. There is only one bright bulb in this bunch and he is the narrator, Joseph. Follow this unusual French family as they search through their Aunt Lucie’s house and grounds for their inheritance. There is crude humor in this book as well as foul language.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Aunt Lucie's Legacy is not a book for everyone, but if you like Auntie Mame or books by P. G. Wodehouse, you will enjoy this book.
Thank you for visiting and reading my review. Happy Reading!
