But this beautiful island break might be more work than she’d expected….  With only two weeks to have the kitchen installed, cocoa pods going missing from the plantation and the notoriously relaxed island workmen to contend with, she’s going to need some help. Gruff but charming estate manager Zach Baxter, is only too happy to offer his opinions. As the two clash heads can they remain focussed on the job in hand and get the cookery school finished in time?

Pack your bags and jump right into the sun and secrets of The Paradise Cookery School. Perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan, Jenny Oliver and Kat French.


About the author

 



Daisy James is a Yorkshire girl transplanted to the north east of England. She loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines.

When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter.

Her husband and young son were willing samplers of her baking creations which were triple-tested for her debut novel, The Runaway Bridesmaid. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something pink and fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.

 

My Review

 

This is the first book by Daisy James that I've read but it certainly has a winning combination; what could be better than combining food and the Caribbean? The setting is exquisite and even though I've never visited Saint Lucia, this book transported me there and to be honest I was sorry to leave. The descriptions of the food are just as delicious and gave me cravings for the rest of the day. Of course, there is romance too as well as drama in the form of a last- minute rush to complete the renovation of the kitchens before the guests arrive. A lovely escapist read!
