Rachel’s Pudding Pantry by Caroline Roberts

A Warm Welcome

Rachel’s Pudding Pantry by Caroline Roberts is a deliciously wonderful feel-good contemporary offering. It will warm your heart and soul.

The novel is a real assault on all your senses, with much of the action around puddings. The reader can almost ‘taste’, ‘smell’ and ‘see’ the delicacies. My taste buds were awakened as I read. It is very pleasing to have recipes included at the back of the book.

Much of the action is set on a Northumberland farm. Comprehensive descriptions enable the reader to ‘walk’ through the landscape.
