Hanna has a foodie’s dream job: as a culinary journalist, she gets to travel across Europe to write up the Continent’s finest restaurants. But after penning a scathing review of a restaurant nestled in a Tuscan apricot grove, her boss informs her of a big problem: when the restaurant’s owner read the article, she keeled over dead from a heart attack. Now the owner’s grandson, Fabrizio, has filed a lawsuit against the magazine, and if Hanna can’t convince him to drop the case, she’ll lose her job. Determined to keep her career off the chopping block, Hanna returns to the restaurant to apologize. But upon her arrival, she finds that the little old lady’s death has created more than just the usual grief, since Granny’s will stipulates that Fabrizio will inherit the restaurant if—and only if—he’s married. With time running out for them both, the young man offers a crazy deal: he’ll drop the lawsuit if Hanna agrees to be his bride. As things heat up in and out of the kitchen, the two wonder: Could Granny’s scheme turn out to be a recipe for romance?

April Lady

Author: Georgette Heyer

Publisher: Pan Books (1973)

This is a real page turner with parts of it almost reading like a farce. Lady Cardross owes her dressmaker money but feels she can't ask her husband for it as he has already cleared a backlog of her debts and she promised him there would be no more. Added to this, she thinks that their marriage was not a 'love match' but that bachelorhood had ceased to be an option for much older Lord Cardross and he had asked for her hand not for love, but out of duty to procreate. Add to this an impulsive brother and his half-brained friend, who decides to help Lady Cardross out of her difficulties and the stage is set for a very funny book!
