Happy Saturday y’all!
Thank you for joining me today as I host day two of the fabulous Me, You & Tiramisu blog tour.
Today, I have an exclusive blog piece written just for us by author Charlotte Butterfield. I know, yeah! Spoiled us aren’t we?
First though, let’s get a look at this book and what it’s all about.
No, hang on a minute. Please can I just mention this now though before I forget to tell you? Ok, so already 2017 has seriously been proving that the romance/chicklit/romcom genres are totally at the top of their game and back at the top, I absolutely love it! I honestly went on a little break last year away from the genre, but some of these upcoming titles, including this one are proper spot on!
Sorry, here we go….
Life for self-confessed bookworm Jayne Brady couldn’t be better – she has a twin sister she adores, a cosy little flat above a deli and now she’s found love with her childhood crush, gorgeous chef Will.
But when Will becomes a Youtube sensation, thanks to his delicious cookery demos (both the food and his smile!), their life of contentment come crashing down around them. Can Jayne have her Tiramisu and eat it?

💜 Journalist to novelist by Charlotte Butterfield.
There’s a scene in Me, You and Tiramisu where a journalist character is frantically trying to scrabble around for a news story to fill a column with and contemplating ringing up celebrities out of the blue, asking if they were gay, and if the celeb in question said no, she would run the story with the headline ‘XXX denies being homosexual’. Thankfully for the last ten years I’ve mainly written about houses and interior design rather than sordid gossip, but when I first started out I too had my fair share of dubious assignments. Standing in the cold in front of a rather insalubrious ‘adult’ shop the day before Valentines Day asking customers what they bought was one of my first commissions – the highlight being a lady who asked to remain anonymous, let’s call her Sally, who bought her partner a thong with an elephant trunk covering his modesty. Other weird commissions involved visiting five clairvoyants in the same day and comparing readings – one of them said I was going to write a bestselling trilogy that would be made into a film, so watch this space!
In the run up to Christmas one year I had to interview ten different shopping mall Santas about their lives for the other eleven months of the year, and taste-test Easter eggs a few months later. Once, when editing a homes and interiors magazine, I was working late in a big open plan office and heard shrieks of excitement from the Cosmo girls a few desks along whose eyes had been fixed to the newswires waiting for news of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ baby to be born. That was the first time I heard the words ‘Stop the Press!’ which until then I thought was a fictional phrase dreamed up to make movies about Fleet Street more exciting. I’ve never had reason to shout this phrase myself, more’s the pity, but I could totally relate to my reporter character in Me, You and Tiramisu and her excitement at breaking the story of Will. The cut-throat world of tabloid journalism is one that I loved writing about, and one I’m quite glad to have left behind!
