9780006499930: Just Desserts

A feast of fun from the author of A FEW LITTLE LIES, in a contemporary cautionary tale with a bittersweet tang.

Katherine has been a full-time housewife for twenty years, but it’s all turning sour. Every time she chops up her delicious home-grown tomatoes she dreams of murdering her husband. Why can’t Harry be normal, have an affair with a younger woman, and leave?

Harry has no intention of giving up his home comforts, but he’s been tasting forbidden fruit for a long while. Glamorous banker Carol accompanies him on weekend trips and overnight business ventures, but she too begins to find that the pleasure’s growing stale.

So who’s fooling who? Harry, happy in his illusion that he’s a sex god and all his women love him? Katherine and Carol, unlikely partners in Harry’s parallel lives? Against a background of gleeful coincidences, cute Cambridge cafes and the unexpected joys of unexplored freedom, the women decide that revenge is a dish best eaten cold – and concoct a denouement that serves Harry right…

‘Captures an authentic flavour of semi-rural angst… an entertaining debut’
Mail on Sunday

From the Back Cover:

Katherine Bourne has been a member of that endangered species, the full-time house-wife, for over twenty years, but things have finally turned sour. While she disembowels her delicious home-grown tomatoes she dreams of murdering her husband. Why can't Harry just have an affair with a younger woman and just leave, like normal men?

But Harry has no intention of giving up his home comforts; he's been sampling forbidden fruit for a long while. Glamorous banker Carol accompanies him on weekend trips and business beanos, but she too is beginning to find that the pleasure is growing stale.

So who's fooling who? Harry, happy in his illusion that he's a sex god and that all women love him really? Katherine and Carol, unlikely partners in Harry's parallel lives?

Against a background of succulent suppers, cosy Cambridge cafes and the unexpected joys of unexplored freedom, the women decide that revenge is best eaten cold. And discover the perfect recipe…
