The Sinking Chef || Blog Tour

Bridget Jones meets Burnt in this delightful comedy novel about a talented YouTuber and the guy who keeps trying to bring her down. Although part of a series this book is completely standalone, as are all other novels in the Pot Love Series.
In Belsize Park, London, Ashley works hard on her daily YouTube channel “The Sinking Chef”.

It’s filmed right in her kitchen, so she doesn’t go out much.
James is a gruff British TV director, turned publisher, who Ashley had a crush on ages ago. She has moved on but when he calls with an offer to take her out to lunch she doesn’t say no. It’s only lunch – what can go wrong?

The day Ashley meets James for lunch and
he promises her a book deal, she makes the worse decision in her life – to hide the book deal from her boyfriend, Giacomo. As things progress Ashley’s secrets mount up and other things in her life unravel. Is there a connection? And how is she going to get out of this without losing Giacomo and the life she loves?

Set in the heart of fast-paced London, The Sinking Chef is a charming story of love, recipes, secrets, and the determination to do thinks right by those you love most in your life."





 Review

Have you ever wanted to know what goes on behind a youtubers closed computer screen? Dive head first into The Sinking Chef and take a closer look where things are not as they seem. Everything seems to be going okay for Ashley when an old flame gets in touch and promises her a book deal - surely this is the next career step for her?!  However, as things plough forward for Ashley, the love of her life Giacomo seems to be facing problems for the first time in his career, could it all be linked?

The Sinking Chef is a laugh out loud fast paced read that was perfect for me to unwind with on an evening. The characters were relatable, the pace of the narrative was great and there was enough drama to keep the reader hooked. I would reccomend this to somone seeking a light hearterd easy autumn evening read.

Rating
3.5/5
