Eating With The Angels


Formats & editions


A mouth-watering novel about love, food, heartbreak . . . and Venice

A mouth-watering novel about love, food, heartbreak . . . and Venice.

Eating means everything to Connie Farrell, she's a restaurant critic after all, so when her husband Tom fails to turn up on their second honeymoon in fairytale Venice she's rattled but she doesn't exactly lose her appetite. Quite the opposite, you could say. Handsome gondolier Marco awakes a hunger in her and sates it with all manner of mouth-watering delicacies, including himself.

But Connie also has a hankering for something with a bit more zest, something muscled and tanned with silver hair and an honest heart going by the name of Luca. All second honeymoons should be so sweet!

Back home in New York, however, there's more than amore on Connie's plate and none of it to her taste. Her husband is gone, her lover is a stranger, her mother is disappointed. Connie has lost sight of the simple things in life but can the cruellest of blows bring them back? Or is it too late?

About the Author

Sarah-Kate Lynch

Sarah-Kate Lynch is a novelist and editor, and has also worked as a journalist, radio presenter and columnist. She has published many hugely popular novels, plus memoir and non-fiction. She reviews, has hosted magazine book clubs, and writes two columns for Woman’s Day.

Sarah-Kate's novels include: The Wedding Bees, Dolci di Love, On Top of Everything, The House of Peine, Eating with the Angels, By Bread Alone, Blessed Are the Cheesemakers, and her first novel published in 2000, Finding Tom Connor. Her non-fiction work includes a collection of columns, The Modern Girl’s Guide to Life (2002). Her memoir, Stuff It! A Wicked Approach to Dieting, she has described as ‘inspired by reading Ellen Degeneres and Fran Drescher's half nonsensical memoirs’. In 2014 she resumed her 'Wicked Approach' series with the hilarious Screw You Dolores: A Wicked Approach to Happiness. More are planned.

The Sunday Star-Times wrote of By Bread Alone, ‘Witty, charming, faithfully passionate to its subject and emotionally adept. If only this book was a man.’ In The New Zealand Herald, Margie Thomson wrote: ‘Her plots buzz along . . . , her characters spring recognisably to life, she’s extremely lively and funny . . . especially when she’s skewering the world of social flim-flam, but with a feel for language that results in some lovely imagery and, in this latest novel, genuine poignancy.’

Next magazine found Finding Tom Connor a ‘cross between Bridget Jones’s Diary and Waking Ned Devine, this is a romantic and rollicking good read’. The Dominion Post concluded of The House of Peine, which is set in a chateau and vineyard in the Champagne region of France: ‘Impeccably researched, it reads like a dream.’

Sarah-Kate lives with her husband and her dog, but she’s often not sure where — and she likes it that way. See more at www.sarah-katelynch.com. She is also on Twitter and Facebook.
