‘I’m looking for that perfect blend of flavours; the taste that used to be you. If I find it, I know you’ll come back to me.’
It’s been 18 months since my husband was murdered and I’ve decided to finish writing The Flavours of Love, the cookbook he started before he died. Everyone thinks I’m coping so well without him – they have no idea what I’ve been hiding or what I do away from prying eyes. But now that my 14-year-old daughter has confessed something so devastating it could destroy our family all over again, and my husband’s killer has started to write to me claiming to be innocent, I know it’s only a matter of time before the truth about me and what I’ve done is revealed to the world.
My name is Saffron Mackleroy and this is my story.
The Flavours of Love was published by Quercus on 7th November 2013, and is available in all formats.
Dorothy Koomson grew up in London and then grew up again in Leeds when she went to university. She eventually returned to London to study for her masters degree and stayed put for the following years. She took up various temping jobs and eventually got her big break writing, editing and subbing for various women’s magazines and national papers. In 2001 she had the idea for The Cupid Effect and her career as a published novelist began. In 2006, her third novel, My Best Friend’s Girl was published: it was selected for the Richard & Judy Summer Reads Book Club and the book went on to sell over 500,000 copies. She recently spent two years living in Sydney Australia, and is now back in England, living on the south coast and still writing books.
