Restaurant: Is a second chance at love on the menu?

Roisin Meaney

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Adult & contemporary romance

A sparkling novel about finding happiness in unexpected places, from the beloved and bestselling Irish author Roisin Meaney

'A gorgeous tale that will delight, charm and captivate the reader' Swirl and Thread

'Meaney leaves you wanting to know more about the characters and what they do next, almost as if they have become friends' Irish Independent

When Emily's heart was broken by the love of her life, she never imagined that she would find herself, just two years later, running a small restaurant in what used to be her grandmother's tiny hat shop. 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?
