Life has been going downhill for ex-TV chef Lizzie Partridge ever since she spectacularly ended her television career by throwing a chocolate mousse at the host of Midlands This Morning. Her partner Tom has left her, Nigella and Jamie have got the cookery world sewn up, and now her cookery column – her last bit of work – has been axed. Surely the only way is up from here?
In a desperate bid for sympathy and attention she runs away, from the gas bill and the mouse under the sink, and in wet and wintry Aberystwyth she experiences a brush with her past and a glimmer of new prospects. And when her nephew’s girlfriend – a TV producer – has the bright idea to reunite her with her former nemesis and target of the mousse attack in a new show, it seems like things could be going Lizzie’s way again after all!
Even though this is a sequel to perfect meringues you can still read it as a standalone like I did, though I will definitely now want to read the first one. This is the story about Lizzie who is an ex TV chef and the reasons why she is now an ex. She decides to head to Aberystwyth to drown her sorrows and look for other work and from there on in the future seems a bit brighter for her. Lots of different characters make for some great comedy.
