Publisher's Summary

Flora is forced to move back to the tiny island of Mure from the bright lights of London. It's tough: even the beautiful landscapes and bright blue sea can't lift her spirits - she's too busy looking after her dad and her feckless brothers. Then she chances upon her mum's collection of recipes and begins to cook her way through it. As she reconnects with her family and the place she was born, might she also find herself?

Different but brilliant!

At first this book was a bit slow, I was 1/3rd in before it grabbed me and from that moment until the end I didn't stop listening and just had to do the rest of it in one day... its style is different from what Jenny Colgan normally writes as it's written from 2 characters perspectives, I think had it not been this way I wouldn't have understood the motives of the second character or understood him at all. It made him more rounded and more human and I think that's what made the book so much more interesting. Absolutely a must read if your a JC fan. I think this is her best book to date.

Island life and foodie treats

This is one of Jenny Colgan's better offerings and more mature in theme than the last few books of hers that I listened to before this. This one's a slightly deeper, more atmospheric book, with descriptions of the island and island life. I like that Flora and Joel are intriguing and complex characters and that it has cooking! Jenny Colgan always seems to do her best writing when she's writing about baking, cooking and food so it's a bit of a treat. In fact I would have given it five stars but towards the end it gets less satisfying compared to the rest of the story. When it finished though I was eager to listen to the sequel.

Enjoyable Escape

This is my favourite of Jenny Colgan's novels, of which I own many. If you love the genre of escapism chick lit the formula of this book will be reassuringly familiar. Where it succeeds is imbuing that formula with genuine depth and warmth. The protagonist is honest, capable and perfectly imperfect. The setting is magical and the narrator is great. Would certainly recommend.

Don’t want to finish

I haven’t finished this book yet but I love it soooooo much that I want to share it ASAP. I can just taste the food described and see the landscape. I even want to move there.
