The Cookery School

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Feel-good, escapist, romantic stories for fans of Debbie Macomber and Kristan Higgins

Sometimes we all need some comfort food...

When Verity's best friend and baking companion died, she took with her their shared passion for cooking. To top it off, it looks like her career and love life might soon follow suit.

Instead of taking some time for herself, Verity leaps at the opportunity to help a friend find her feet and help establish a cooking school in the village. Her only demand is that she doesn't have to cook anything! It's a place to hide out until she's ready to put herself out there again...but starting a cookery school is far from easy, even new friendships and even the potential of fresh romance around the corner.

So when tragedy strikes Verity once again feels like she is losing everything. Can Verity find the magic ingredient to save the cookery school?

And more importantly, can Verity finally write her own recipe for happiness and put herself first?

*Published in the UK as The Plumberry School of Comfort Food*
