The Dish by Stella Newman is the new novel from the much-loved author of
and Leftovers. This is a warm, passionate novel that will delight fans of Jill Mansell and Mhairi McFarlane and leave you happy and hungry in equal measure.
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?
Stella Newman. Fiction has never tasted so good.
The Dish was fun, flirty and utterly delicious!
I loved how much this book was centred around food. My thoughts kept alternating between the realisation that I was a complete food novice and wishing that I could go out and try all the delicious food mentions. I got the munchies just from reading. Sometimes I got so desperate I couldn’t decide which itch to scratch. Continue reading about the gorgeous food and equally gorgeous story or satisfy my food craving. Luckily I choice the right option and kept on reading…
The Dish is heart-warming, clever and humorous read. There is the right balance of witty jokes and romance to create the perfect blend. I loved how well Adam and Laura played off each other. I loved the emails sent between all the characters – summing up the mood in the book at the time perfectly and I loved the misunderstandings, the heartbreaks and best of all the joy friends, family and loved ones bring.
The heartbreak may have been a tad predictable but this dish was perfectly served with plenty of helpings and a pretty bow to tie it all up. This is one that will definitely be going on the favourites, to be enjoyed over and over again.
