Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

She has only one chance to turn her life around.... 

Allie is bored with her job and starting to wonder whether she even likes her boyfriend, Ryan. 

The high point in her day is passing a café on her walk home from work. It is the sort of place where she'd really like to work. 

Then one day she sees as advert on the door: assistant wanted. But before she can land her dream job, Allie knows she must achieve two things: 

  1. Learn to cook
  2. End her relationship with Ryan, especially as through the window of the café, she spies a waiter who looks much more like her type of man.

And when she learns that the café is in danger of closing, Allie knows she must do her very best to save the day....

Thank you Katie Fforde!

I think KF is back on form in this short story, after a brief and not entirely successful foray into the past in her most recent novel, I can say that this is back to her brilliant best. Saving the day in this short story, a bitesize treat for me and balm for the mind. I shall be listening again. The characters are likeable and you want the main character Allie to succeed in her endeavours and from the get go I was on her side, always a good sign that you're enjoying the book, Learning to cook with Allie was somehow made to seem exciting too!
My only complaint with this audiobook is that I wanted it to be longer, I know it's meant to be short but feel it could still be twice the length and would still be a short one! I hope you 'll give this a go, if you like a gentle romance and don't mind the length or even you like your books longer it's still worth it.
