#AndThatsAWrap of #MarblesMarvels by Katie Simpkins @dcbrockwell1 #ZooloosBookTours #KatieSimpkins

Famed Hampshire restaurant, Marble’s Marvels, is struggling. Poor food, few customers. And competing with the Italian restaurant across the road is not helping either.

Kate and Aiden Marble are out of ideas. Aiden is still struggling to cope after a tragic accident split their village in half two years ago. Kate tries to hold everything together, knowing that unless things change soon, they will lose the restaurant.

Out of the blue, a chef turns up and offers to cook them the best food they’ve ever tasted, in exchange for a job as sous chef. It seems like the fortunes of the restaurant are turning around. But is it a coincidence, or is there something magical about the new, mysterious chef?

Did you find out about the mysterious new chef over the last few days? Was he actually magical? Let us find out

Review by dds_book_reviews (IG), “Marble’s Marvels is a hug in book form, to use a cliché – a book I didn’t realise I needed to read.”

Review by Herding Cats, “Marble’s Marvels was so much more than I expected. I was expecting a feel-good story with food references and a sprinkle of magic, which is what I was served, but there are also deeper issues explored amongst the characters that really tug at the heartstrings.”

And that is well and truly a wrap!
