I'm chuffed to discover that both Perking the Pansies and Turkey Street are back in the top ten on Amazon.
If your life is like the one Jack and Liam used to lead, and you’re caught up in the crush of long gruelling hours at work and depressed by the particularly grey hue of Northern European winters, Turkey is a great place for a holiday in the sun. It can be absolutely spell-binding, and many a holiday maker has returned to their normal life and started talking about moving there for good. However, crossing the divide between fantasy and action is a big step. As Jack and Liam discovered, the difference between an imagined new life and the actual one can be a real shock. If you’re lost in the dream, this is the book for you!

Perking the Pansies and Turkey Street make great gifts. Others seem to agree as they're No. 1 and No. 2 most gifted books in category on Amazon.co.uk.
"The book is replete with witty dialog and outlandish characters. The narrator, Jack, while seeming to present their daily life in a straightforward way, tends to throw his husband and their new acquaintances into high relief while keeping his own personality shaded and his own emotions in check. The device works well, mostly because Scott is a fine writer who knows just what he’s doing."
