Hubble Bubble : Be Careful What You Wish for Paperback
Hubble bubble, toil and trouble, Casserole burn and intrigues double 'Mitzi Blessing is on the scrapheap: forced into a very early retirement, a lifetime of organising the church flower rota and making cricket teas seems to loom gloomily ahead of her.
With her two daughters seemingly happily settled, Mitzi is determined not to dwindle quietly into serene old age and sets about organising and revitalising Hazy Hassocks, the small rural community she has lived in all her life.
However, with the discovery of her grandmother's cookery book in the attic,life for Mitzi and her friends and family starts to get very interesting.
Full of old-fashioned recipes with enchanting names like Wishes Come True Pie, Mischief Night Cake, and Powers of Persuasion Pudding - Granny's dishes provide a nourishing meal, but they also seem to have some very surprising side effects indeed.

Review by laurajamieson
The first in a series by this author. After picking it up at the library, along with the next in the series I had doubt about whether this would fall into the chick-lit realms too much and lose any originality. I was happily surprised. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Christina Jones has written a unique and accessible book, and also allowed herself plenty of room to move in the series. the nature of the series means the book is well finished, with a strong plot throughout. Would highly recommend this book to people, who wanted a lighter 'chick lit' read, but weren't fussed with most of the unimaginative fare of the genre.
