Oh What a Pavlova by Isabella May #bookreview #lovethesmellofabook @isabellamaybks

I love the food, drink and location themes that run through Isabella May’s books.

Daniel is a domineering husband who is a bully with increasingly violent tendencies and this story focuses on the split personality that Kate develops as a coping mechanism. I found this a brilliant book that holds an important message about the impacts of domestic abuse and the effects on your mental health as well as the physical marks that are left behind.

A book that takes you on a journey with Kate through the wonders of cake, I highly recommend this book and can see why it has been so popular with readers.

Book Blurb

Kate Clothier is leading a double life: a successful jet-setting businesswoman to the outside world, but behind closed doors, life with Daniel and his volcanic temper is anything but rosy.

Some days – heck, make that EVERY day – cake is her only salvation.

Slowly but surely, the cities she visits – and the men she meets – help her to realise there IS a better future.

And the ley lines of Glastonbury are certainly doing their best to impart their mystical wisdom…

But will she escape before it’s too late?

Available to buy on Amazon

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
