FFORDE'S books are always very readable and at the higher end of the 'chick lit' genre, and this one, although it's not one of her best efforts, is no different.
The story centres on Perdita, a vegetable grower, who is shocked to discover one morning that the new chef at one of the hotels she supplies is her ex-husband Lucas.
Things get further complicated when Lucas needs Perdita and her picturesque cottage to help his bid to become a celebrity chef, and when Perdita's 87-year-old friend Kitty has a stroke and Perdita needs someone to turn to.
My main criticism with this book is that Lucas' character is rather sketchy, and details about his and Perdita's previous relationship are thin on the ground.

It's certainly an enjoyable read but a bit more background might have helped create rounder, more interesting characters.
