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.

I would not recomend this book as relaxing easy reading. This book covers a wide of serious issues including murder/ grief. Teenage pregnancy, pedophilia, stalking and harassment, bulimia and anorexia and inlaw conflict. I gave up reading the book page by page from about the middle of the book and just skipped through to the end. Personally just found it too disturbing to have all these issues in one story and didn't enjoy it at all.
