The Dish

The official blurb:

Love is on the menu. With a side order of lies.

When Laura Parker first crosses forks with Adam Bayley, she’s only after one thing: his custard doughnut. But when she takes a closer look she sees a talented, handsome man who outshines the string of jokers she’s been dating.

There’s just one problem. Adam’s job means Laura has to keep her job as restaurant critic for The Dish, a secret. Tricky for someone who prides herself on honesty.

Can the truth be put on ice long enough for love to flourish?

And how can you expect your boyfriend to be honest if you’re not quite telling the truth yourself?

This is an engrossing book; one where you find yourself empathising with the characters, cringeing and thinking ‘oh no, don’t do that!’ at various points. The main character has my dream job – a restaurant critic – though I’d be rubbish because I would feel so mean if I wrote anything not nice about somewhere! Food is very central to the book and I liked the food descriptions and the behind the scenes bits.
