“In smart and crisp prose, Bate tells a winning story about food, love, and second chances... Great fun.” BOOKLIST
“Bate's novel is a fun story about empowering yourself to follow your dreams and go for the life you really want... Full of humour and lots of genuine heart, the novel is a pleasurable read.”
Sydney Strauss is obsessed with
food. Not just with eating it, but
with writing about it as an aspiring
cookery reporter. Food journalism
jobs are more coveted than
cupcakes, however, and so she is stuck working for one of TV's biggest egomaniacs – until she's left scrambling for shifts at the local farmers' market. Selling muffins at the Wild Yeast Bakery is hardly going to make her the next Nigella. But soon Sydney is writing the market's weekly newsletter, and her quirky stories gain attention from a prominent food columnist. After years of being left on the shelf, she's even dating again. And then Sydney gets a shot at the story, one that could either make her career or burn it to a cinder – along with her relationship and her reputation...

Lee Child
Make Me
The Jack Reacher Series
“Child's best for some time: an enhancement of the old formula, with detective-story and romcom elements (even sly humour) on top of the psychological duels and set-piece violence.”
“Typically blunt and energetic... precisely judged.”
Jack Reacher has no place to go,
and all the time in the world to get
there, so a remote railroad stop on
the prairie with the curious name of
Mother's Rest seems perfect for an
aimless one-day stopover. He expects to find a lonely pioneer tombstone in a sea of nearly ripe wheat – but instead there is a woman waiting for a missing colleague, a cryptic note about two hundred deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people. Reacher's one-day stopover becomes an open-ended quest...into the heart of darkness.
