The Cotswolds Cookery Club: A Taste of Spain by Alice Ross


Life begins at forty…71Su7BjlCaL._UX250_

Trish Ford always dreamed of living in a little chocolate box village like Cornfield – but she never expected to be starting over at forty! Joining the Cotswolds Cookery Club seems like the perfect recipe for finding happiness again, along with her new friends Connie, Melody and Kate.

From mouth-watering paella to sweet, honey-drenched pestinos, Trish finds a delicious distraction in the Spanish cuisine whilst doing her best to deal with her stroppy teenage daughter and her cheating ex-husband and his pregnant girlfriend.

But it will take all of Trish’s new-found confidence – and maybe a helping of her irresistible leche frita – to risk her heart on hunk single dad Steve…




Superb writing! Highly recommended even if you’re not a foodie!  5startr

It’s so nice to be back in the Cotswolds, reconnecting with the members of the Cookery Club which has moved on since the first book and, with the departure of one member, signs up a new addition in Trish.

Trish is a fabulous character and every woman with a teenager will identify with her home life. She can be quite exasperating at times but provides great entertainment. As with the first, this is a good stand-alone read .. well plotted and with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. My only gripe would be that it ends at 91% to allow for a preview of the third book – something I’m not a fan of.

This is all round entertainment encompassing each member of the Cookery Club, characters from the first book and introducing a few new ones. Superb writing, as always from Alice Ross, makes for a thoroughly enjoyable all round read and one which I would highly recommend – even if you’re not a foodie!

My grateful thanks to publisher HQ Digital for permitting me to read this arc via NetGalley in exchange for my honest, original and unbiased review.
