Martha and her friends are sitting comfortably in Sweden… a little too comfortably. Determined to do more for their fellow pensioners—and jazz things up for themselves—they’re up to their usual antics: bank robberies, money laundering, and figuring out how to disappear in a garbage-truck-cum-getaway-car. They have their sights sets on building a resort village for seniors, but that’s going to take money. Lots of money. While stalking their millionaire neighbor, Carl, on Facebook, Anna-Gretta scrolls through his photos—all of them featuring luxury yachts on the Riviera—and an idea comes to her on how to solve the League’s cash problem. When she shares the hare-brained scheme with the others, they’re all aboard. Their plan to cheat billionaires out of their luxury yachts in the south of France’s sun-bleached Saint-Tropez soon turns into the heist of their lives with the police hot on their heels—as well as a couple of ruthless ex-cons. Now this wily group of walker-equipped conspirators are hell-bent on accomplishing their dangerous mission—no matter the consequences…

Being worried is what Maxime does best. At sixty-four-and-a-half, Maxime Bastien Baumann wants to retire more than anything else, but he can't. He's too worried. He's not a hypochondriac; he's just anally retentive. And obsessive-compulsive. And constantly afraid of being late. His life is structured and lived by a set of rules: two full pages if he writes them down, double-spaced. For Maxime, being late is never a bloody option. As his life with his wife of thirty-seven years and their two sons implodes, Maxime realizes his "life rules" desperately need an overhaul. Staggering through setback after setback, Maxime must learn to replace worry with confidence and flexibility, stop seeing others as schmucks, reconcile with his family, and learn that it will all come at a great personal cost. About the Author Danie Botha was born in Zambia. He completed his school education and medical training in South Africa. He lives in Canada. Interview with the Author Q - What makes Maxime a unique book? A - Several things. Maxime takes a tongue in the cheek look at growing older. It is an offbeat romance. Maxime appears on the surface to be only about a hapless, anally retentive eccentric. It is more. In spite of the story's satirical look at family life, health, and illness, it soon confronts the issue of how far we are willing to go to reconcile, grow as individuals, and survive the storms of life. Q - Why should readers bother reading this book? A - Readers who enjoy humor and satire and contemporary fiction who enjoyed reading A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman, The 100-year-old man who climbed out the window and disappeared by Jonas Jonasson, The Little Old Lady Who Broke All The Rules by Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg and The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion, should also enjoy reading Maxime.
