Food, family and fresh beginnings. On the outskirts of a quiet hamlet on the New Zealand coast, Lia and her friend Anna work serious hours running their restored 'villa' cafe. The busy season, they know, is just around the corner. There are plenty of other things distracting them too. Anna is about to marry Lia's twin brother; Lia's older half-brother, who lives hours away on the family farm, looks like he might be disinherited by their curmudgeonly father; and Lia's ex-boyfriend seems not to understand it's over. And there's all the delicious cooking. Then, when a gorgeous stranger taps on Lia's window near midnight and turns out not to be a serial killer, it seems a healthy new interest could develop. But the past won't let them be, and when Lia's ex becomes dangerous, she must decide whether events rule her life or she does. The Pretty Delicious Cafe is a space you'll want to linger in, keeping company with a charming, unflappable crew who call out those special, good things we love about living. PRAISE FOR DANIELLE HAWKINS Dinner at Roses 'A cross between All Creatures Great and Small, Bridget Jones's Diary and something the Topp Twins would write if there was only one of them and she was straight, this is a very funny book.' Next Book Club 'What really carries it is the quality of the writing. The dialogue is absolutely spot on. You would almost believe the author wrote for TV or writes sitcoms. It's very, very funny.' Paper Plus, Winter Reads 'It's so good that it's hard to believe it's a first novel. It had better not be her last. Please, Danielle' Lee Matthews, Manawatu Standard 'Reading this is better than sleeping!' Sunday Star Times Chocolate Cake for Breakfast 'Another sweet, gently funny depiction of life in the back blocks of New Zealand.' Next 'Helen is frankly delightful - intelligent but oh-so-human ...a plausible, relatable storyline and hugely appealing characters. A charming summer read, and a giggling good time' Australian Women's Weekly 'The only problem I could see in the book was the Wallabies did not win often enough' Jodie, GoodReads 'This is a delightful, contemporary romance' - Herald Sun
