'I defy the most hard-hearted cynic not to not find something just as seductive in his writing'
A very skilful practitioner of a genre hitherto dominated by Nick Hornby and Tony Parsons . . . this novel should secure his position in that particular literary gang
Like a gift from heaven
'Burke moves between the two characters' points of view, bringing both a persuasive male perspective and a sympathetic feminine position . . . Burke's bubbly enthusiasm for London, where the novel is set, is infectious, as is his characters' passion for food, travel and romance'
Original and comedic . . . very cool, very pithy
Burke's characters and their unfolding story have depth and charm
His writing is just the right mixture of tongue-in-cheek meets heartwarming and he makes you laugh . . . it works because it's real . . . I defy the most hard-hearted cynic not to find something just as seductive in his writing
