If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen. Right? That’s easier said than done when Chef Trudy Baker has to cohost the cooking show of a former love, Chef Jack Dozen. Problem is Jack’s a jilted former love who would rather throw Trudy into the fire than share the spotlight with her. Sexy Jack has all the right ingredients for the perfect man... except he’s too young for her. He’s also her guilty secret—one she never told anyone about. Trudy’s romantically happy friends are insisting she get happy too, which is the only reason she signed up with The Perfect Date. Dating sounds nice in theory, but in practice, the only place Trudy ever gets hot these days is in the kitchen. Her saner self knows she's better off dating a mature man closer to her own age than a cocky idiot who’s spent the last decade hating her. The recipe of the network putting them together on TV is one that spells disaster. The only thing she and Jack ever cooked up together was trouble. Maybe trouble is the ingredient she’s been missing… p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Helvetica Neue'; color: #454545} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Helvetica Neue'; color: #454545; min-height: 14.0px}

"Motherhood fiction at its best." "Joyful, funny and uplifting - I could relate to everything Juliette went through." "Brings back all those happy memories of first motherhood. LOVED it!"

"I liked the diary style as it broke up the chapters making it easier to stop when my everyday chores needed doing so that it was easy to pick up where i left off.....brilliant idea." BOOK EXTRACT Friday January 1st New Year's Day Back at Mum and Dad's after HUGE row with Nick. Am FURIOUS. Asked him to look after Daisy while I went to the supermarket (when I take her along, I get distracted by the 2-for-1s and buy random things, like jam-filled wagon wheels). Got home to find Nick playing computer games, with TEN empty bottles of original Guinness beside him. TEN BOTTLES! In TWO hours! I went mental. 'I've got a high tolerance for alcohol, ' he slurred. 'If I were drunk, I'd never have cracked this part of Assassin's Creed.' I demanded he walk in a straight line, and he fell over. As I was screaming at him, Nick's mum let herself into the apartment. She saw Nick on the floor and said, 'Do sit up straight, darling.' Then she asked what all the fuss was about. I said Nick was getting pissed when he was supposed to be looking after Daisy. 'Oh Nick, ' said Helen. 'But Juliette, he has been working all day. He's obviously stressed.' Working! All Nick's done today is read a two-page script for an online poker commercial. 'If I ever need relationship advice from a divorcee, ' I told Helen, 'I'll let you know.' Then I screamed at Nick at bit more, threw a bag together and said I was taking Daisy to my parent's house. I would have made a strong, dignified woman exit, except I had to come back for Daisy's pink waffle blanket, Teddy Snuggles, blackout curtain with suckers, spare nappies and finally her Lullaby Light Bear.

Is this all there is? I hadn’t had so much as a sniff of a shag for over a year. I scraped the last dregs of Caramel Chew Chew ice cream out of the bottom of the tub with my finger and licked it. It left a sticky smear on my phone’s screen when I typed into Google, “How to find love, sex and happiness.” Charlotte has always been a good girl. She sorts her paper from her plastic. She eats her greens (even Spirulina, whatever that is). Boozy brunches with her best friends on the third Sunday of every month are about as bad as she gets. But being good is getting boring… Charlotte’s not just stuck in a rut – she’s buried in it up to her chin. The only company she has in bed is the back catalogue of Netflix and falling in love feels like the stuff of fairy tales. So when she stumbles across a popular podcast, ‘Sorry Not Sorry’, which challenges women to embrace their inner bad girl, she jumps at the chance to shake things up. Old Charlotte would never ask for a stranger’s number, go on a blind date or buy lacy lingerie… But New Charlotte is waving goodbye to her comfort zone (with a side order of margaritas). And it turns out that good things happen to bad girls, as Charlotte finally finds her Mr Right – or so she thinks… Is falling in love too tough a challenge even for Charlotte? Fans of Sophie Kinsella, Mhairi McFarlane and Matt Dunn will love this fabulously feel-good novel that will make you make you laugh till you cry and leave you living life to the full, margarita in hand!
