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

'Utterly irresistible' Irish Independent

When Emily's heart is broken by the love of her life, she never imagined that she would find herself running a small restaurant in the converted hat shop her grandmother left to her. The Food of Love offers diners more than just a home-cooked meal -- and even though Emily has sworn off romance forever, it doesn't stop her hoping for happiness for her regulars, like widowed Bill who hides a troubling secret, single mum Heather who ran away from home when she was sixteen, and gentle Astrid whose past is darker than any of her friends could know.
Then, out of the blue, Emily receives a letter from her ex. He's returning home to Ireland and wants to see her. Soon Emily has some tough decisions to make.
Will she choose the life she could have had, or the one she has ended up in? Is she brave enough to give love a second chance - and wise enough to figure out where it's truly to be found?
