So when a college dropout called Adam knocks the side mirror off her BMW with his anti-nuclear placard, the last thing Grace expects is to fall in love. Anxious friends soon notice an alarming change - Grace gives up work, she shuns dinner parties and, most disturbing of all, she stops shaving her underarm hair.

Synopsis: From the author of Biche ''Strange food is a perfect substitute for foreign travel. I started off with crabs and pomegranates and rice paper, progressed onto pancakes with maple syrup (from Little Chef on the way to Bournemouth) and then tried experiments eating baby food and human blood. One day, my tooth came out during a mouthful of my mother's cottage pie. It was sort of chickeny. A chickeny, frightening flavour.' A precocious teenager growing up in an English seaside town during the late 1970s, Rosa Barge longs for escape. The only glamour in her world comes from the life of her heroine, Fanny Cradock. Cradock's exotic concoctions of Crepe Suzette, Tournedos Rossini with mauve Duchesse Potatoes and the Taj Mahal made from Italian Meringue speak to her of foreign climes and sophistication. But when Rosa finally does escape, she realises that 'abroad' is not quite what she expected. Bereft of the securities she knew in England, she finds that the earthy, picaresque realities of Spain cause her to question who she really is and force her to deal with unpleasant truths about her past. A past which is gradually catching up with her...   Good

Her shop becomes the focus of the village hit squad, her landlady is into money-laundering, and while everyone else is involved in blockbusting steamy relationships, Jemima's lovelife is a closed book.

After taking her sister's advice, and consulting with a celebrity doctor, whose practice is a bit unconventional, Elizabeth is convinced that she's found the secret ingredient to saving her marriage. All she has to do is slip the prescribed packet of miracle herbs into Roger's orange juice and then--presto! She'll have him back the way he was before he started coming home from work and falling asleep in front of the TV! But her plan goes dramatically awry, and instead of rekindling her romance with Roger, she finds herself stuck with a man she hardly recognizes and doesn't even like. Suddenly, Elizabeth is breaking into the doctor's office, running from the law, and teaming up with a transplanted Southern belle--all in a desperate attempt to restore Roger to his old, imperfect self. What she learns is that perfection, especially when it comes to husbands, is highly overrated. The question is: Does her revelation come too late?  Very Good

So here she sat, alone in her cramped apartment, wedding crinolines askew, drowning her sorrows in a hundred- dollar bottle of Veuve Cliquot, when her doorbell rang. And her trip to hell in a handbasket was about to escalate. At the door: Nick, Ginger's "first." Only, he's a police officer now, and he wants to find out what she knows about her M.I.A. congressman fiance. When was the last time she'd seen him? She'd better not leave town... And the spiral continues: her cozy little sublet (really, she liked having her shower in the kitchen) is about to be yanked away, and the prestigious little design firm where she works is about to go belly-up. So what's a girl to do? Her answer, born of desperation: move in with her crazy, widowed mother -- who Ginger claims sucks the life force out of every creature within one city block of her -- and her grandmother, who spends much of her day engaged in heated arguments with her dead husband. Well, it's a plan. But bizarrely, as the summer progresses, her eccentric but lovable relatives give her the courage to make choices based on what she wants, not what she wants to avoid.  Good+

Meet Elizabeth Baskin, who falls in love, gets married, and discovers six years into her union that the magic is gone or rather, fading. Her husband Roger has grown a paunch, lost interest in sex, and seems allergic to conversation. What's a disgruntled wife to do? After taking her sister's advice, and consulting with a celebrity doctor, whose practice is a bit unconventional, Elizabeth is convinced that she's found the secret ingredient to saving her marriage. All she has to do is slip the prescribed packet of miracle herbs into Roger's orange juice and then--presto! She'll have him back the way he was before he started coming home from work and falling asleep in front of the TV! But her plan goes dramatically awry, and instead of rekindling her romance with Roger, she finds herself stuck with a man she hardly recognizes and doesn't even like. Suddenly, Elizabeth is breaking into the doctor's office, running from the law, and teaming up with a transplanted Southern belle--all in a desperate attempt to restore Roger to his old, imperfect self. What she learns is that perfection, especially when it comes to husbands, is highly overrated. The question is: Does her revelation come too late?  Very Good
