Celebrating The Plumberry School of Comfort Food by Cathy Bramley


Having met lovely Cathy Bramley a couple of times in person I am so excited to be part of the launch celebrations for The Plumberry School of Comfort Food which was published in paperback by Corgi, an imprint of Penguin Books, yesterday 30th June 2016. The Plumberry School of Comfort Food is available for purchase on Amazon and from FoylesWaterstones, HiveW H Smith and from all good bookshops.

To celebrate the publication of The Plumberry School of Comfort Food, fellow blogger Zarina asked Cathy some questions and Cathy is answering them across a range of blogs. You can see yesterday’s answer with Zarina here and read today’s answer below.

The Plumberry School of Comfort Food


Verity Bloom hasn’t been interested in cooking anything more complicated than the perfect fish finger sandwich, ever since she lost her best friend and baking companion two years ago.

But an opportunity to help a friend lands her right back in the heart of the kitchen. The Plumberry School of Comfort Food is due to open in a few weeks’ time and needs the kind of great ideas that only Verity could cook up. And with new friendships bubbling and a sprinkling of romance in the mix, Verity finally begins to feel like she’s home.

But when tragedy strikes at the very heart of the cookery school, can Verity find the magic ingredient for Plumberry while still writing her own recipe for happiness?

A Question for Cathy

After self-publishing your first novel, Conditional Love, you’ve had such incredible success. Besides, of course, getting your book deal, what has been the most exciting part of this journey so far?

Thank you. Actually, I find the whole publishing process exciting right from when I first get the seed of a new idea for a book, right through until I see the finished book on the shelf in store. But if I had to pick one moment, it would be just after Wickham Hall came out and it made number 16 in the UK paperback charts – that was pretty exciting!
