Connie has had enough. Enough of the city, enough of her job – and most importantly, enough of her cheating husband! So, when her best friend jets off to sunny Australia and calls on Connie to house and dog-sit, the timing couldn’t be more perfect.
When Connie arrives at the gorgeous Cotswolds getaway, she can’t resist opening the doors to the town, offering up cooking lessons – and a lot of wine! Cue the three – very different – women who respond to Connie’s cookery club advert. But it’s soon clear they will need more than a glass of wine to overcome their problems…
Can Connie conjure up the right ingredients to help her new friends? And with two gorgeous men thrown in the mix, Connie may have just ended up with a recipe for disaster!
I love a sea/tree change story – especially one that centres around food – and this was just adorable. I actually don’t have very much else to say about it, given it is a novella so pretty short! I loved it and I’m looking forward to continuing following the adventures of Connie and her friends in the next two novellas (out in August and September).
A solid 3.5 stars (and a bowl of homemade gnocchi!)
The Cotswolds Cookery Club – A Taste of Italy by Alice Ross is out now from Harper Collins. I received an e-book copy in exchange for an honest review, but only chose to read it because it sounded like something I would enjoy (life’s too short to read books we don’t think we’ll enjoy). All opinions on my blog are my own, and I wouldn’t tell you it was good if I didn’t really think so. =)
