When in Doubt… Eat Cake [working title]
- Mills and Boon Single Titles
- Cake designer to the stars Halle Best is a national treasure at the tender age of 36. But behind her Domestic Diva brand — and the pants-to-profiteroles story of a teenage single mum from Hackney who became the nation’s favourite baked-goods guru — is a woman whose life isn’t quite as truly scrumptious as it appears… Especially when her 18-year-old daughter Lizzie returns from a visit to Paris to see her father, Luke Best — an award-winning journalist whom Halle has refused to speak to for sixteen years — with the disastrous news that Luke plans to write a memoir. Halle travels to Paris to talk sense to the sexy, shallow cheating bastard who lobbed her heart into a blender all those years ago, only to discover he is now a sexy, shallow, cheating bastard with an agenda: Either she agrees to pose as his plus one at an Xtreme Couples Retreat in Tennessee’s Smokey Mountains for some idiotic exposé he’s writing — or Luke’s going to lob her misspent youth into the public domain, curdling her whole very-nearly-truly-scrumptious life into a sour bloody mess. Again.
