Robbie MacIntyre runs a small Post Office made from a converted Station House in a village northwest of London. He is stunned when a close friend leaves him the property as an inheritance after her death.
She owned the shop and has left everything to him. Not only that but she has left the place she lived, Apple Tree Cottage, to an American – a stranger who has recently moved to Barton Hartshourn.
The sealed box that they inherit includes several rare first editions and a cookery book. Only when the secrets of the ingredients in a particular recipe are finally revealed does everything begin to make sense… and a love story that began seventy years ago is finally uncovered.
Tales of the Curious Cookbook
It’s called comfort food for a reason.
Not much is known about the cookbook, except that years ago, the mysterious Granny B collected a set of magical recipes and wrote them down. Over the years, each book has been modified, corrected, added to, and passed down through the generations to accumulate its own unique history. The secrets behind these very special recipes are about to find their way into new hands and new lives, just when they’re needed the most.
Food created out of love casts a spell all its own, but Granny B’s recipes add a little something extra. This curious cookbook holds not only delicious food, but also the secrets of love, trust, and healing, and it’s about to work its magic once again.

As an avid reader herself, she can be found reading anything from thrillers to sci-fi to horror.

Her goal is to write stories with a heart of romance, a troubled road to reach happiness, and most importantly a happy ever after.
