I truly loved the characters in this book, except Cher (I wanted to pull her hair and push her face first into the mud) and Rupert's parents are hilariously awful! I also loved the concept of this - it was like a cross between Masterchef and The Great British Bake Off. If you hate cooking, don't let this put you off - the book doesn't require you to be a cooking-lover. There are certainly some descriptions that will make anybody's stomach rumble!
The story is wonderfully paced and easily devoured. Katie Fforde has created a warm and wonderful book that will keep you turning the pages until suddenly you find yourself at the end with a smile on your face and wanting more. This book is delicious chick lit at its best.
What I found different with this book compared to her previous books is that it had more of a modern feel to it and with this it brought different characters. For the first time in Katie's books there was a character I did not like from the word go and that was Cher. This wasn't a problem as her character is not meant to be liked after the situations she put Zoe in but she really did grate on me and I just wanted to shake Zoe and get her to stand up for herself more as I am sure most people would in her situation.
Zoe was a very warm and caring character and would do anything to help other people even if it meant putting herself in risky situations. I also loved the character of Gideon the judge although I did find him very similar to some of Katie Fforde's previous male characters but it's that age old saying if it's not broke don't fix it!
The storyline was something completely different to the authors previous books with the whole cooking competition which is what gives it a more modern feel but not to worry if any of you are like me and love the cosy country setting that Katie usually creates as there is still a good helping of this throughout the book.
So yet again our Queen of cosy chick-lit provides us with another must read. Thank you Katie Fforde let's hope it's not too long for the next book!
I'm truly disappointed with this book! I'm a Katie Fforde fan, and athough i've not liked ALL the books (living dangrously was another annoying one for me), i still had hoped for more! The main character is very, very weak. I know that there are some people that allow themselves to be a push over, but come on!
She's staying at a huge mansion type place, and she has ended up making dinner or tea for the judges, serving them, putting her position as a contestant in jeapordy so she can make a wedding cake for people she doesnt even know, waiting as a servant on the in laws of the house owner, spoken down to....you name it! There is even a bit in the book where after she 's gone above and beyond for these people, she's asked if she can stay at the house during the time she is meant to be finding recipes for the finale of the competition.
The spoilt brat villain , Cher, could not get away with the stuff she is doing. It would be highly suspicious and she would be disqualified. No one is doing anything about anything! In order to be a nice person, it doesn't mean to be walked over in this way!
I'm starting to not want to even continue. It's just been pages and pages of her deciding if she likes Gideon or not....there is no spark between them. He cannot have fallen in love with her within 2days!!
There are so many annoying and obnoxious parts to this book, im thinking this is close to being the worst one i've read (of katie's).
This being said, im giving it 3 stars, because i do like a Katie Fforde book, and i'm also pregnant and it could be im getting angrier than i usually would in regards to a book!!
