'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?
'A wonderful, warm novel which I couldn't put down. Tears of laughter and sadness abound' Women's Way
A good little read. Pleasant and interesting.
The best book of 2023 for me. Such a beautifully written story. I didn’t want it to end! I feel like the characters are my friends now. First time with this author and can’t wait to read more. Thank you!!!
Entertaining from Start to Finish
This author never disappoints me. Her characters and storyline are always so relatable, you are able to imagine yourself in their situations. I will read anything she writes! And it's Ireland!
