Everybody needs a little love in their lives…
Pru Plum is the celebrated owner of a famous Mayfair bakery. She wears Chanel and her hair is expensively cut. Few would believe that this elegant woman turned sixty-six last year.
But Pru is not the confident, successful businesswoman she appears. She has done shameful things to get to where she is today. And she will do anything to protect the secrets of her past – especially when, for the first time in her life, she has finally fallen in love…
From bestselling author Amanda Prowse, this is a story about love, loss and lies – and finding happiness before it’s too late.
This book should come with a food warning! Trust me, before you start this book, make sure you have plenty of cake or pastries to hand because believe me, you are going to be craving them whilst reading this story. Am sure in some parts I was even drooling!
Pru Plum is in her sixties and runs a successful bakery. She lives above the business along with her cousin Milly and niece Bobby. The story starts off quite light hearted of which overall there is a lot of lightness to it but also a lot of heartache. It’s hard not to go through the same emotions as Pru does through the novel as the more I got to know her character, the closer I felt to her.
There is an awful lot of mention of food in the book, mainly of the sweet kind. There is even a recipe for one of the items at the end of the book. I won’t tell you which one as it was very much a sweet surprise! Along with delicious sweet treats, the story deals with loss and moving forward. It’s also about coming to terms with things from the past. I loved the relationship especially between Pru and Milly, there is a wonderful bond between the two.
A Little Love was a sweet and engaging story where more than a few of the characters captured my heart. It was a book that I didn’t want to end as I could quite happily have carried on sharing the day to day lives with these characters. It wasn’t until I finished the book I realised just how much it had stolen my heart. Another delightful and wonderful read by Amanda Prowse!
