Description of this Book

Odds of saving marriage - slim. Farming expertise - patchy. Chances that it'll all be okay in the end - actually pretty good ... I wasn't enjoying the afternoon of 23 February even before I learnt that my husband was having an affair. The news of Jenny's husband's infidelity comes as a nasty shock to the part-time building control officer and full-time mother - even though, to her surprise and embarrassment, her first reaction is relief rather than anguish. What really hurts is her children's unhappiness at the break-up, and the growing realisation that, alone, she may lose the family farm. This is the story of the year after Jenny's old life falls apart; of family and farming, pet lambs and geriatric dogs, choko-bearing tenants and Springsteen-esque neighbours. And of getting a second chance at happiness. PRAISE FOR DANIELLE HAWKINS 'Author Danielle Hawkins ... has a talent for witty and convincing dialogue and this, in particular, gives The Pretty Delicious Cafe verve and humour. She's also a skilled sculptor of characters' Otago Daily Times 'Danielle Hawkins' quirky humour and easy style make [The Pretty Delicious Cafe] a great summer read' Dominion Post 'Utterly delectable with a twist of spice and a touch of zest!'

Author's Bio

Bestselling NZ author Danielle Hawkins lives on a sheep and beef farm near Otorohanga with her husband and two children. She works part-time as a large animal vet, and writes when the kids are at school and she's not required for farming purposes. She is a keen gardener, an intermittently keen cook and an avid reader. Her other talents include memorising poetry, making bread and zapping flies with an electric fly swat. She tends to exaggerate to improve a story, with the result that her husband believes almost nothing she says.
