Romantic comedy from the author of The Generous GardenerLizzie is cooking up a storm of comfort food for quick-tempered husband Tom. But some problems cannot be solved even by good food and she must end her marriage. Meanwhile, the growing rivalry between Lizzie and cookery writer Nick Pharamond is coming to a rapid simmer, and he may just have called her the Queen of Puddings once too often...
Trisha Ashley is now a full-time novelist, but she has been known to work for stained glass makers and/or plumbers. She likes to paint, eat, drink, and read literary biographies. Her previous hobbies included getting divorced and packing to move. She claims to have once actually eaten Bronte burgers at the Branwell cafe, but her publisher declines to verify this. She lives in North Wales.
Sadly, it's a great relief when Lizzie's increasingly violent husband is found dead on the outskirts of Middlemoss. Perhaps now her life can settle down a bit, and she can while away her days in the English countryside, tending to her garden, writing her books of kitchen wisdom, and testing new recipes. But there is no serenity to be found as her late husband's mistresses crawl out of the woodwork, she pulls together the annual mystery play, and she finds herself in a love triangle with tasty actor Rob, a longtime friend, and equally delicious Nick. There is something about the bucolic madness of the English village that never ceases to amuse, and Ashley uses the gentility of days gone by as a well-polished veneer concealing secrets and scandals so juicy Hollywood would blush. All of which is well distilled here with a dash of mystery and a subtle and well-played romance. If you like your love cozies with a little kick, Sweet Nothings is a real treat. Nina Davis
