• "Hilarious ... Love it to bits."

    Joanne Harris
  • "Any satire of village life depends for its gags on an ensemble of engaging eccentrics, and Stuart's zesty narrative style is tailor-made for farce. Her flesh-and-blood creations . . . feel entirely homegrown . . . Stuart injects her own brand of va-va-voom."

  • "Fast, furious and incredibly funny . . . Julia Stuart sets a great pace in this lip-smacking mix of food, foolishness and fun."
