In the sun-drenched Sicilian hills, four women learn the lessons of a lifetime at the Food of Love Cookery School.
In a remote Sicilian mountain town, four women arrive at a cookery school, each at a turning point in their lives.
Moll is a foodie and an exhausted working mum on the holiday of a lifetime. Tricia, a top London lawyer, is taking a break from the demands of her job and her family. Valerie, consumed by grief following the death of her partner, is trying to figure out how to live a life without him. And recently divorced Poppy has come to Sicily to learn about the place where her grandfather was born before emigrating to Australia.
Luca Amore runs the school, using the recipes passed down to him by generations of Amore women. He expects this course to be much like all the others, but as sparks fly, friendships are made and secrets are shared. And for each of them nothing will ever be the same.
Luca teaches cookery to tourists in the Sicilian mountains. When a group of four friends arrive, all at different stages in their lives, he will fall for one of them. Who will it be? Great beach read! - ESSENTIALS

This Italian mantra is the inspiration behind Nicky's delicious novels. When Nicky met and married a New Zealander she moved to Auckland where she works as a journalist and edits a woman's magazine.
