DELICIOUS is an irresistible novel about the enduring love affair between Italy and England, three very different generations of women, and an old kitchen in Campania that binds them all together. DELICIOUS combines the mouth-watering culinary warmth of Joanne Harris with the wonderful storytelling of Maureen Lee. Nostalgic, romantic quality of Italy contrasts with the starkness of Liverpool. 'Full-bodied as a rich Italian red, it's a page-turner combining the missed chances of Captain Corelli's Mandolin with the foodie pleasures of Chocolat. A warming read for a winter's night' Eve 'If you like your stories on the sensuous side, this debut novel is for you' Glamour.
