The Girls’ Guide to Homemaking

Amy Bratley

Can Juliet put her life back together – one martini at a time?

Single and definitely not ready to mingle – after Juliet’s heart is broken, she finds comfort in an unexpected place. Somehow, diving into her grandmother’s 1950s homemaking manual is just the escape she needs from thinking about her ex-boyfriend, ex-best friend, and ex-home.

She quickly finds herself lost in a world of sublime meringues and heavenly cocktails, where the worst thing that can happen is your soufflé failing to rise or running out of olives for the perfect martini.

Realising that home is what you make it, and picking up some new baking skills along the way, Juliet is determined to get her life back on track. She’s even making new friends – including the freckled, sharp-cheekboned and seemingly-unavailable Dylan.

But will Juliet finally find someone for whom she can cook a perfect baked Alaska, or will she end up with a meal for one?

Readers who love Sophie Kinsella, Jill Mansell and Lucy Diamond will fall in love with this heart-warming tale of love, laughter and old traditions.
