Dinner for Two

Mike Gayle

Ideal holiday book. Easy to read, engaging characters, plenty of gentle humour but touching on the complexities of human relationships in a way that gives the novel a value beyond a pleasant read. Warning - despite its light touch, probably one to avoid for emotionally fragile souls who have issues around children or parenting.

I read the letter several times but nothing's going in. I look round the office to check I'm not dreaming: Lisa, the production manager, is putting a new CD into the office hi-fi; Daisy, the senior writer is talking loudly to a friend on the phone: Jessica, the junior designer, is standing by the colour printer in the far corner of the art department. Everyone's going about their business. No-one's looking at me waiting to go,
'Ha! Ha! had you fooled there!' I'm alone on this one.
