Book giveaway: Poppy's Recipe for Life

poppys recipe for life

Treat yourself to the uplifting new book from Sunday Times bestselling author Heidi Swain, Poppy's Recipe for Life. To celebrate the publication, we're giving 10 lucky gransnetters the chance to win a copy of the book. 

Things haven’t always been straightforward in Poppy’s life but her dreams are finally within her reach. She's moving into a cottage in beautiful Nightingale Square, close to the local community garden, where she can indulge her passion for making preserves and pickles.

She may not have the best relationship with her family but she is surrounded by loving friends, and feels sure that even her grumpy new neighbour, Jacob, has more to him than his steely exterior belies.

But the unexpected arrival of Poppy's troubled younger brother soon threatens her newfound happiness and, as the garden team work together to win Community Space of the Year, Poppy must decide where her priorities lie and what she is prepared to fight for...
