'Thyme Out' by Katie Fforde
'Thyme out' by Katie Fforde, published by Century, 2000, was a pleasant read.
The central character is Perdita Dylan, with a vegetable business. On delivering vegetables to a local hotel she finds that her ex-husband, Lucas, has taken over the kitchen. She grapples big time with her feelings in regard to him. Meanwhile, her 87- year old friend Kitty has a stroke and subsequently dies. There is concern that a distant relation might get the money; but thankfully it comes to Perdita. In the end, Perdita and Lucas plan on re-marrying and using Kitty's money to open a new restaurant.
