Piglet

16.99

Piglet is judging the contents of your shopping trolley. She is listening to what you order for lunch and is observing whether the dessert you serve is homemade or snatched from a packet. There isn’t another 31-year-old that takes food more seriously. And who could blame her, with a childhood nickname like that? In just over a fortnight, she is marrying Kit. Kit and his tasteful family present an opportunity for reinvention – when she had been growing up in Derby, this life, this man had been beyond her imagination. Together they are the picture of domestic bliss – effortless hosts in their new house and planning an immaculate, covetable wedding. Everything is coming together for Piglet – tied as tightly and perfectly as her apron strings. But, if a life looks too good to be true, it probably is!

Her life is so full, so why is she hungry?

For Piglet – an unshakable childhood nickname – getting married is her opportunity to reinvent. Together, Kit and Piglet are the picture of domestic bliss – effortless hosts, planning a covetable wedding…

But if a life looks too good to be true, it probably is.

Thirteen days before they are due to be married, Kit reveals an awful truth, cracking the façade Piglet has created. It has the power to strip her of the life she has so carefully built, so smugly shared.

To do something about it would be to self-destruct.

But what will it cost her to do nothing?

As the hours count down to their wedding, Piglet is torn between a growing appetite and the desire to follow the recipe, follow the rules. Surely, with her husband, she could be herself again. Wouldn’t it be a waste for everything to curdle now?

Piglet is a searing, unforgettable and original debut which is taking readers by storm in 2024.
