After a relationship-breaking argument with her dull, artist boyfriend, Veronique jumps into her little white Fiat and drives off into the warm Paris night. Feeling the effects of the wine she has been drinking, she makes sure she drives slowly and carefully, down into the underpass, not wanting to hit the sides of the tunnel. The Little White Car is a feel-good buddy novel about the untimely death of Diana, Princess of Wales, and how two gorgeous French girls go about urgently dismantling a small white car . . . while an enormous dog sniffs around in the garden and greasy mechanics drop in to provide counsel. A shining example of chick-lit with miles of style and no shortage of attitude, one could see it result in an unprecedented comarketing agreement between Club Monaco and Midas Mufflers.
