The Food of Love offers diners the possibility of friendship (and maybe more) as well as a delicious meal. And even though Emily has sworn off romance forever, it doesn't stop her hoping for happiness for her regulars, like widower Bill who hides a troubling secret, single mum Heather who ran away from home as a teenager, and gentle Astrid whose past is darker than any of her friends know. Then, out of the blue, Emily receives a letter from her ex. He's returning home to Ireland and wants to see her. Is Emily brave enough to give love a second chance -- or wise enough to figure out where it's truly to be found? Fall in love with Roisin Meaney... 'A wonderful, warm novel which I couldn't put down. Tears of laughter and sadness abound' Women's Way
