Description - When It All Went to Custard by Danielle Hawkins

Odds of saving marriage - slim. Farming expertise - patchy. Chances that it'll all be okay in the end - actually pretty good ...

I wasn't enjoying the afternoon of 23 February even before I learnt that my husband was having an affair ...

The news of her husband's infidelity comes as a nasty shock to Jenny Reynolds, part-time building control officer and full-time mother - even though, to her surprise and embarrassment, her first reaction is relief, not anguish. What really hurts is her children's unhappiness at the break-up, and the growing realisation that, alone, she may lose the family farm.

This is the story of the year after Jenny's old life falls apart; of family and farming, pet lambs and geriatric dogs, choko-bearing tenants and Springsteen-esque neighbours. And of just perhaps a second chance at happiness.


'Author Danielle Hawkins ... has a talent for witty and convincing dialogue and this, in particular, gives The Pretty Delicious Cafe verve and humour. She's also a skilled sculptor of characters' Otago Daily Times

'Danielle Hawkins' quirky humour and easy style make [The Pretty Delicious Cafe] a great summer read' Dominion Post

'Utterly delectable with a twist of spice and a touch of zest!' Nicola Moriarty
