Something to Talk About

Can men and women ever really be friends?

Lucy and Max have been best friends forever. Lucy, a bored beautician with a Jamie Oliver obsession, is determined to find kite-maker, Max a girlfriend - someone who will meet up to her own high standards.

So, in the name of 'true love' and with the help ofJamie's The Naked Chef, Lucy decides to hold a Meet Max dinner to find Max the right woman, in the form of her beautiful friend, Jenny. Food, wine and romance go hand in hand after all.

At first everything goes well, and it seems that food, wine and romance do go hand in hand after all. But soon easy-going Max is running scared of man-eater, Jenny. He decides he'd much prefer to be out flying his power kites than falling into the dating pit again.

But fate works in mysterious ways and sometimes even kite-makers get their strings tangled. And when Max does meet someone special and 'forgets' to tell Lucy there are far-reaching consequences.

Background to the Book (Website Exclusive)

I call this my 'Harry Met Sally' book as it's about two friends, Lucy and Max. Can men and women ever really be friends? You'll have to read their story to find out!

The title for this one didn't come easy and here are some of early ones I came up with:

What Love Is The Very Thought of You Love is Where You Find It Love is All Around

The Truth About Love (which was the second choice in the end)

Cupid's Dance Goodbye Cupid Ciao Cupid Introducing Lucy Cupid Lucy Plays Cupid Call Me Lucy Cupid The Cupid Challenge Cupid with Water Wings (what was I thinking?!) Training Cupid Flying Cupid Playing Cupid Stupid Cupid

To the Stars and Back Lessons in Love

I think we made the right choice - what do you think?
