The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles by Katherine Pancol translated by William Rodarmor and Helen Dickinson

Josephine's unemployed husband leaves her and heads to Kenya with his mistress to manage a crocodile farm. Josephine is left with her two daughters and has to make ends meet as well as pay off her ex-husband's debt. Her sister, Iris, offers her a way to make a lot of money which seems like a good idea at the time...

This is translated from French and is the first in a series of three (only this first one has been translated...please hurry and translate the other two, William and Helen!).

I really liked this book. It starts off with a common plot, but the quirkiness and personalities and French-ness of it all make it a unique and fun book.
