They come to an agreement and Tony finds himself agreeing to become a fiance for the duration of Mel’s mother’s stay. In return she’s going to teach him how to cook a new menu to regenerate interest in the pub.
There is a spark of romance running throughout. Mel and Tony are lovely characters and Rabbits Leap sounds a wonderful place to live. The cakes and meals will make you feel hungry whilst reading- and some of the dishes sound very tasty.
