    The Perfectly Imperfect Pairing - Wine and Book Set

    As low as: £33.00

    A perfectly imperfect pairing! Come on, the goal was wide open. Given baking is what brings our lead characters to become unlikely friends it would seem improper not to pair this read with a succulent and fragrant dessert wine, that would be an ideal accompaniment to anything baked in this novel!

    Book Description: Marnie Salt has made so many mistakes in her life that she fears she will never get on the right track. But when she ‘meets’ an old lady on a baking chatroom and begins confiding in her, little does she know how her life will change. Arranging to see each other for lunch, Marnie finds discovers that Lilian is every bit as mad and delightful as she’d hoped – and that she owns a whole village in the Yorkshire Dales, which has been passed down through generations. And when Marnie needs a refuge after a crisis, she ups sticks and heads for Wychwell – a temporary measure, so she thinks. But soon Marnie finds that Wychwell has claimed her as its own and she is duty bound not to leave. Even if what she has to do makes her as unpopular as a force 12 gale in a confetti factory! But everyone has imperfections, as Marnie comes to realise, and that is not such a bad thing – after all, your flaws are perfect for the heart that is meant to love you.

    Set in the wine country of the Dordogne, You Mr Everything is a novel about one woman’s fierce determination to grab hold of the family she has and never let go.

There, Jess’s ex-boyfriend and William’s father, Adam, runs a beautiful hotel in a restored castle. Jess is bowled over by what Adam has accomplished, but she’s in France for a much more urgent reason: to make Adam connect with his own son.
