I had a wonderful delivery from @HodderPublicity & @bookbridgr through my door in the shape of @chrissiemanby new book The Worst Case Scenario Cookery Club.
In the quaint seaside town of Newbay, a beginner’s cookery course is starting. And three very different students have signed up . . .
Liz‘s husband has left her for a twenty-something clean-eating blogger, and she’s determined to show the world – and her daughter – she’s just as capable in the kitchen. John, newly widowed after fifty years of marriage, can’t live on sympathy lasagnes forever. To thirty-year-old workaholic Bella, the course is a welcome escape from her high-pressure job. Their only common ground: between them, they can barely boil an egg!
Enter talented chef Alex, who is determined to introduce his pupils to the comforts of cuisine. As Liz, John and Bella encounter various disasters in the kitchen, the unlikely trio soon form a fast friendship. Their culinary skills might be catastrophic – but could the cookery club have given them a recipe for happiness?
This was a joy to read from start to finish, each character had their own story to tell and had me smiling each time I turned a page. There are even recipes to follow which is an added bonus in my eyes.
I have always adored Chrissie’s work, she always makes a dark day bright. This book as with all of her work, should be on NHS Prescription as I am positive it will help many people feel better.
I rate this book 5/5
