A Recipe For Disaster by Belinda Missen


Today I am so happy to be part of the Blog Tour for A Recipe For Disaster by Belinda Missen. Also, huge thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for asking me to take part.


A Recipe for Disaster

Meet Lucy, master wedding cake baker, idealistic school canteen crusader, and someone whose broken heart just won’t seem to mend…

Lucy is quietly confident that she has made the right choices in life. Surrounded by friends and family in a small country town, Lucy can easily suppress the feeling that something is missing from her life.

But when a blast from the past arrives in the form of her estranged husband, international celebrity chef Oliver Murray, Lucy’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble beneath her like overbaked meringue.

Is Oliver’s return all business or is it motivated by something more?

A Recipe for Disaster starts long after most love stories would have ended, proving it is never too late to offer someone a second slice of cake or a second chance.

Perfect for fans of Carole Mathews, Mhairi McFarlane and Carrie Hope Fletcher.

My Review

I’ve always admired the skills required to make wedding cakes so I couldn’t wait to meet Lucy, the main character in A Recipe For Disaster.

She is delivering a wedding cake to a venue when she hears the unmistakable sound of her ex-husband coming from the kitchen. They had split when Oliver went to seek his fortune overseas as a celebrity chef. Lucy thought she had moved on, however bumping into Oliver unexpectedly bought memories flooding back.

Now he is back, opening a restaurant and telling Lucy he regrets leaving her

Will she go ahead and pursue their dream, or simply walk away with her head held high?

A sweet romance about childhood sweethearts, broken apart. A look at relationships and different personalities and how people change over time. Do people learn from the mistakes they made in the past or continue to go over old ground?

A pleasant. light funny read, well written and thought-provoking.

Thank you to NetGalley and Rachel for a copy of the book which I reviewed honestly.


Author Bio –

Belinda Missen is an award-winning and best-selling author, screenwriter, and freelance writer from Geelong, Australia.

Belinda began writing her own stories shortly after her love affair with Steven Spielberg’s film Jurassic Park began. What began as fan-fiction soon took deeper root, and she was scribbling out strange little stories in empty notebooks she found laying around the house.

With qualifications in transport and office administration, and a combined career of fifteen years in these industries, Belinda decided to uproot everything in 2013 and return to her first love of writing. She now writes full-time, between cups of coffee, binge watching television, and feeding her cats and husband.
