Anyone for Seconds – Laurie Graham

Synopsis:  Life has been going downhill for ex-TV chef Lizzie Partridge ever since she spectacularly ended her television career by throwing a chocolate mousse at the host of Midlands This Morning. Her partner Tom has left her, Nigella and Jamie have got the cookery world sewn up, and now her cookery column – her last bit of work – has been axed. Surely the only way is up from here?

In a desperate bid for sympathy and attention she runs away, from the gas bill and the mouse under the sink, and in wet and wintry Aberystwyth she experiences a brush with her past and a glimmer of new prospects. And when her nephew’s girlfriend – a TV producer – has the bright idea to reunite her with her former nemesis and target of the mousse attack in a new show, it seems like things could be going Lizzie’s way again after all!

In Anyone for Seconds, Laurie Graham’s characters are well drawn and set in a very current environment. Her book is funny, full of one liners, but yet there are also very poignant moments. A perfect summer read.
