Marie Dunwoody has a lovely husband, three wonderful children, and a business of her own. But she cannot bake for toffee.
Marie can't ignore the disappointed looks any more or continue to be shamed by neighbour,Lucy Gray. She vows to follow--to the letter--recipes from the queen of baking and at all times ask, “What would Mary Berry do?”
Husband Robert has noticed that his boss takes crumb structure as seriously as budget sheets and so puts on the pinny: serious redundancies are on the horizon. Marie starts to realise that the wise words of Mary Berry can help her with more than just a Victoria sponge. But can Robert save the wobbling soufflé that is his career?
What would Mary Berry do? It starts off so well, the idea is good, then the storyline in essence is okay, but so predictable, which usually I don't mind, but it was obviously predictable, there was no doubt about where it was headed. The writing style was okay, but it lacked the pace of a good story, there was nothing to make me keep reading, it was dull. But I persevered, it felt like an achievement to get to the end that's how heavy going it was to get through. I quite liked what was going to happen in the future which I think was in the epilogue at the very end too, but that was not really worth wading through to get too. I was disappointed as it could have been a good story, shame it really wasn't!
