    I'm looking for that perfect blend of flavours; the taste that used to be you. If I find it, I know you'll come back to me. It’s been 18 months since my husband was murdered and I’ve decided to finish writing The Flavours of Love, the cookbook he started before he died. Everyone thinks I’m coping so well without him - they have no idea what I’ve been hiding or what I do away from prying eyes.

    In 1988 two girls with identical names and the same love of ballet meet for the first time. They seem destined to be best friends forever and to become professional dancers.
