Praise for Jo Thomas’ The Olive Branch: ‘Sun, good food and romance, what more could you want?’ Heat

When Ellie Russet leaves home and her restaurant in the wake of disaster to housesit in the Kent countryside, the last thing she wants to do is cook for a living – ever again.

Ellie’s new neighbour, Daniel Fender, is struggling to make ends meet as a furniture maker. Could the answer to his problems lie in the chestnut orchard at the bottom of the garden?
