Second Thyme Around i should change my crummy chick lit tag, because i don t actually find chick lit to be crummy across the board i actually really enjoy it when i am in need of something fun frothy between the heavier doses of non fiction to which i subject myself this particular dose of chick lit, however, wasn t particularly to my tastes.the plot stars perdita, a 29 year old organic gardener who supplies a few local restaurants a health farm, which is a british ism that i don t understand at first i thought it was a rehab center, then i thought maybe it was a spa it doesn t really matter, it s not especially relevant to the plot perdita s little house backs on to the land that is owned by her good friend kitty, an elderly wealthy lady who happens to be perdita s mother s godmother perdita s parents are world travelers are never around, so perdita spends most of her quality time with kitty perdita is a divorcee, having married an unsuitable bully of a man who could not be faithful when she was 18 their split was a dark chapter in perdita s life, but kitty helped her get back on her feet, When I drive, I like to listen to NPR radio or audio books that I don t have to think too much about You know the ones that I won t want to go back and savor the words, re reading a particular passage to marvel at how it was crafted or what it said I usually pick books that are cozy mysteries thrillers make me speed or some of the lighter, whimsical rather than whimsicle, as used on www.regretsy.com, one of my other online indulgences , sometimes even grabbing something that could fit as chick lit or the dreaded women s fiction Note I also have been known to listen to audio books for big, heavy books that would be awkward to hold, or books that I haven t been able to get into when reading, but that are highly recommended Sometimes a good reader can get me through those, and I come out liking them at the end This book fits one of those categories you be the judge.The story is pretty straightforward Perdita finally has her life on track after having her heart broken and her marriage dissolved She runs a small organic gardening business, has faithful clients and good friends, including h Second Thyme Around Read Author Katie Fforde Thomashillier.co.uk When Phillida Dylan, 28, Delivers Baby Vegetables To One Of Her Regular Clients And Finds That Her Ex Husband, Lucas, Has Become The Chef, She Is Horrified So When She Learns He Is To Become The Latest Celebrity Chef And Needs Her Picturesque Cottage, And Her, In Supporting Roles Life Is Further Complicated When Kitty, Her 87 Year Old Friend, Has A Stroke Can She Cope Maybe Kitty Is Right When She Says, You Can T Cuddle Lettuces. I really liked this, though you should be aware that this book deals with the illness view spoiler and eventual death hide spoiler What a dispoointment this book was I am not a fan of chick lit apart from very few authors and Katie Fforde is the foremost She always made me feel good and till now, I closed her books with a smile on my face, they were the equivalent of the grownup s fairytale But in this book she tried to tackle serious subjects and situations and it just can t fly Transi I like it a lot, but don t understand what the auther has with angry men This is the second book I ve read of Fforde and agan, a man that s hot, super sexy and always fighting What s the deal Oh I keep going back for ah I get it now Duh. Wasn t expecting especially much from this Katie Fforde Generally I enjoy reading her books while they re in my hands, but then they fly completely out of my head the second I put them down Thyme Out, though, I really enjoyed and I think I ll think about for a lot longer Sure, there s the usual romance plotline involving Perdita and her ex This is my favorite Katie Fforde book and one of my all time favorite romance novels I re read it when I need to cheer myself up with a happy ending. A light, easy read, but not up to Katie Fforde s usual standards of good sense The plot skipped along nicely, and I very much enjoyed the depiction of the relationship between the protagonist, Perdita, and her elderly friend and former guardian, Kitty However, the romantic thread never gelled for me Lucas, Perdita s ex husband, has re entered her life, and she is enormously attracted to him why Handsome and temperamental He was that in their first marriage, and they were problems than features He s added some kindness to his flaws, but he s still a belligerent, pushy, demanding man.That conversation in which he suggests she shares the blame for the demise of their marriage, in that she was too passive and didn t make him behave No She s your wife, not your mother If monogamy is your agreement, then to reneg on the agreement is your choice, and you own it, not her She can t make you behave Either you want to be married, or you don t Katie Fforde, how disappointing And that bizarre sex scene on the kitchen floor, where she s trying to stab him with a knife Yes, I can see she s working out her anger here, but it scarcely reveals a healthy dynamic, does it Nor do they ever sort that out properly Oh, except that she accepts her sha I m happy that no one says bad things come in fours because I ve already had three and hope it is the last for a while In the last 4 months, my dog died, then my Mother died, then my car died I really wanted to read as a distraction, but could not bear anything heavy Upon a recommendation from a librarian for a light beach read, I checked out this book It was perfect It was romantic without being gaggy and it contains no heaving breasts nor is there any trace of a open shirted Fabio standing on a mountain with his hair blowing Instead, it had an absorbing storyline and I pretty much read it straight through Since I enjoy cooking, the fact that it is a romance between a woman who grows lettuces and a chef and takes place in a restaurant is all the better The author has injected a dose of the present day by including a TV cooking show in the mix The author is British and although many of her terms most Americans are aware of or can figure o
