Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Cooking for the higher echelons of Government is certainly lucrative but put a foot wrong, let the tabloids misinterpret something and your world can come crashing down. This scenario is at the heart of Prue Leith’s latest book, a lovely tale although not her best in my opinion. So enjoy this and move on to Choral Society.

Comparison: Elizabeth Buchan, Lou Wakefield, Annabel Dilke.

November 2010 Good Housekeeping selection.

The Good Housekeeping view...

Synopsis

A Serving of Scandal by Prue Leith

Kate McKinnon is thirty-six and mother to five-year-old Toby. She has a small but thriving business catering for private clients. Her life is on an even keel. That is, until she gets a job cooking lunch at the Foreign Office and has her first fateful meeting with Oliver Stapler, Secretary of State. He's powerful and charismatic, but also married and a father and totally out of bounds, yet she falls for him. When a journalist spots them together, he alerts the gutter press. Who cares whether Kate's affair with Oliver is true or not? It's a great story and will shift a ton of newspapers and destroy several lives in the process.
