Kate McKinnon is thirty-six and mother to Toby. She used to be a restaurant chef but that all stopped when Toby - now five - came along and changed everything. Now she has a small but thriving business catering for private clients, companies and some government departments. Her life is on an even keel. Then she gets a job cooking lunch at the Foreign Office and has her first fateful meeting with Oliver Stapler, Secretary of State. He's married and a father and totally out of bounds, yet she falls for him. She thinks she's hiding it beautifully, but there are people who would like to see her fail and to them her feelings are all too transparent. When someone alerts the gutter press, who cares whether Kate's affair with Oliver is true or not? It's a great story and will shift a ton of newspapers - and destroy several lives at the same time.
Ok - so the name might be a bit cheesy, but I was sent this book for review and once I started reading it, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Largely because the main character is a chef and the food sounded so delicious I couldn't read it without eating at the same time (don't you love books about food?), but also because it's a cute story and well written.
Small catering company owner, Kate is accused of having an affair with a government official and the media circus that ensues pretty much ruins her business and her reputation. But is it true?
If like me you enjoy light beachy reads, it's cute and I think you'll enjoy it!
