Format: Paperback
I'm amazed at the number of negative reviews here for this book. I've read numerous Katie Fforde books and to me this and Wild Designs are by far her best books. I came to them first and prior to the awful re-packaging they have undergone in recent years which makes them look like your standard repetitive chick lit rubbish. To me her writing deteriorated seriously after this and became much more standard fare. Looking at the reviews, I think if you have read her later books and liked them you are maybe going to find this one a bit slow.

I think most romance writers do their best work early and the pressure of having to continue to churn out books takes its toll on later books when their ideas and excitment just aren't as fresh. Marian Keyes is another whose early books are great and whose later books just don't have the same fizz.

I really enjoyed Living Dangerously and I still re-read my battered penguin copy (no pastels in sight!) with great pleasure from time to time.

Format: Paperback
Polly Cameron thirty something would be potter works as a waitress. She lives amid clutter and cats and normality. She is a lovely character with her oxfam clothes and her genuine kindness especially to drunken teenagers.This is one of Ffordes best novels the characters are well presented even the awfull jolly hockey sticks Melissa whose decor matches her food beige. Polly meets the rather stuffy David Locking-Hill and they are immediately attracted to each other, despite their differences. Polly is in her own way somewhat repressed, and this shows unconsciously in her work as a potter, an encounter with David changes all that and Polly begins to change her style as an artist. An enjoyable read.

For some reason, the reviews from earlier editions of this book are not picked up in this section! If you'd take the time to check the earlier editions, you'll see that many readers just love this book. Please don't let one bad review dissuade you from reading this book - it's superb! It's wonderful! It's a modern classic! (OK,OK, that's a bit much - but really, it's just terrific.) Not every book is right for every reader, and obviously the first reviewer of this re-release was not well pleased - to each their own. The main protagonist, Polly, is not perfect - but she's got her reasons, and she really comes out of her shell as the story progresses. I love Fforde's attention to detail - but don't be put off by that, it's not monotonous and pointless. And while Polly isn't perfect - criminy isn't David though?! My absolute favorite Fforde "hero". Can you tell I love this book? Yes I do - and I really think you (or most of you!) will too!

I have read all of Katie Fforde books and though I love them all and look forward to each one, I think this is still my favourite. Having worked in a wholefood cafe myself the ambience in the kitchen with the preparations makes me feel quite nostalgic. David, the hero, is sexy and gorgeous in a Mr Darcy way and Polly is def Lizzie Bennett. I have read and rearead this book and love it every time. Highly recommended. I am delighted to see from checking this page that she has two more books due out this year. I shall buy them both on date of publication with no hesitation whatsoever

I am a big Katie Fforde fan. I have read all her books and love them all for different reasons but Living Dangerously is my number one favourite. I adore the characters especially the Darcyesque David and I have re-read the book more times that I care to remember. If you only read one Katie Fforde (and I'm sure you'll want to read more), read this one.

This is my favourite book of Katie Ffordes. I love it!

As I had read "Love Letters" by Katie Fforde I thought it may be a good idea to read her first book, hoping it would be as good.
And it was.
Within this book you got some very romantic scenes which just makes your blood pump. Which I do believe may be the point.
You have David who is rish, a widower and very garded, but knows what he wants. But then there is Polly who is not at all comfortable with herself physically and would love to become a potter, but does not have the money to give up her part time job as a cook.
The love between them grows gradually but this book is not slow like the love between the two characters. It is fast pace with lots of Mischief.
This would either be a good bedtime read or a good outdoor read whilst on a nice weekend holiday.
Who ever said romance was dead.

if you are just going to read one of Katie Fford's books, choose this one.
A happy formula of thirty-not-stick-insect independant woman, with artistic abilities, finding love.
A book I want to keep, a feel good.

At the end of reading this book I felt disappointed that I couldn't carry on knowing these people, or even be Polly myself! A wonderful hotch-potch of humour and tummy tingling passion. Makes you want to take up pottery and wear several layers of tights under your jeans if good-looking men find it so attractive!
