A Recipe for Disaster by Belinda Missen ** Blog Tour Review**


 I'm happy to welcome you to the blog tour for A Recipe for Disaster today.

Life's not always a piece of cake...
Meet Lucy, master wedding cake baker, idealistic school canteen crusader, and someone whose broken heart just won’t seem to mend…


Lucy is quietly confident that she has made the right choices in life. Surrounded by friends and family in a small country town, Lucy can easily suppress the feeling that something is missing from her life.


But when a blast from the past arrives in the form of her estranged husband, international celebrity chef Oliver Murray, Lucy’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble beneath her like overbaked meringue.


Is Oliver’s return all business or is it motivated by something more?


A Recipe for Disaster starts long after most love stories would have ended, proving it is never too late to offer someone a second slice of cake or a second chance.


Perfect for fans of Carole Mathews, Mhairi McFarlane and Carrie Hope Fletcher.


My Thoughts
A Recipe for Disaster features two strong characters who are both driven in their own ways and who failed to communicate at a crucial time in their lives. Oliver appears back in Lucy's life and it is not clear at first as to whether this is purely for business or something else. Are second chances possible ? I enjoyed the 'will they, won't they' aspect throughout.

    Lucy is at a turning point when Oliver reappears and just dipping her toes back into cake making. It is good to see how she develops in confidence about her own creativity and starts to recognise possibilites for herself. You get to see flaws and virtues in both Lucy and Oliver's characters which gives them more depth. Set in Australia, in a small town, you feel you get to know the small community Lucy is settled in and all in all, it s a story to be savoured, just like Lucy's cakes.

In short: Cakes, romance and misunderstandings to be sorted.

  
About the Author



Belinda Missen is an award-winning and best-selling author, screenwriter, and freelance writer from Geelong, Australia.



A reader from an early age, Belinda began writing her own stories shortly after her love affair with Steven Spielberg’s film Jurassic Park began. What began as fan-fiction soon took deeper root, and she was scribbling out strange little stories in empty notebooks she found laying around the house.

With qualifications in transport and office administration, and a combined career of fifteen years in these industries, Belinda decided to uproot everything in 2013 and return to her first love of writing. She now writes full-time, between cups of coffee, binge watching television, and feeding her cats and husband.

In April 2016, she was awarded the JOLT Courthouse Youth Arts Award in the Inspire 26+ Category for her piece Obsession.

In February 2017, her book Love and Other Midnight Theories clawed its way to the top of the Amazon charts in its category of Performing Arts, beating JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. True story – she has the screenshots to prove it.

When not dabbling in the written word, Belinda can be found mentoring other writers, beta-reading, reviewing, helping others to ready books for publication, and sleeping. In the digital world, she can be found online at GoodreadsFacebook, TwitterInstagram,  and Pinterest.
