9780099280248: Thyme Out

Love can grow on you, or can it? A wonderfully romantic novel from the No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Recipe for Love, A French Affair and The Perfect Match.

When Perdita Dylan delivers her baby vegetables to a local hotel and finds that her unpredictable ex-husband, Lucas, has taken over the kitchen, she is horrified - particularly when she discovers he's being groomed as the latest celebrity chef and needs her picturesque, if primitive cottage, and her, in supporting roles.

Her life is further complicated when Kitty, her 87-year-old friend, has a stroke. Perdita needs someone to lean on - and Lucas seems so keen to help that she starts to wonder if he's really such a villain. Can she cope with all this alone? Or should she face up to the fact that 'You can't cuddle lettuces'?

Review:

In the 10 years since the collapse of her tempestuous marriage, Perdita Dylan has become beautiful, confident and determinedly celibate. Now the owner of a thriving salad nursery, she has patched her life back together and has almost completely forgotten how much she loved, and then hated, her ex-husband. So when she finds out that he has taken over the kitchen belonging to one of her most important clients, she is understandably wary. Add to this the fact that she is going to have to play at being polite to him during the filming of a new TV celebrity chef programme at her run-down cottage and it seems inevitable that her world is about to fall apart.

Thyme Out is Katie Fforde's sixth novel and builds on her strength as a funny, poignant storyteller. She has the knack of portraying realistic, self-sufficient women such as Perdita, who although vulnerable and alone, especially when the mainstay of her life (the 87-year-old Kitty) has a stroke, is never desperate--indeed it is only the concern of her colleagues and friends that forces her to reassess whether or not she wants to do anything about being single. Predictable yet comforting in its familiarity, Thyme Out is perfect reading for the bath. --Jane Honey

Review:
