A sprinkle of luck and a dollop of fate …

Ruby Brooks is a little sceptical when her horoscope say she’s going to have a fabulous year – especially when she loses a boyfriend and a job in quick succession. Plus, a rogue kitchen fitter has run off and taken everything, including the kitchen sink!

So, Ruby takes luck and fate into her own hands with an unusual resolution – she’ll enter ten competitions a day, whether they’re for her dream Japanese holiday or a year’s supply of dog food (she doesn’t have a dog), and win her way to happiness.

But when a Valentine’s Day prize from a local restaurant results in chef Adam Finder (and his dog, Brutus) appearing in her life, is that luck or fate? And will Ruby ultimately find out that true happiness doesn’t need to be won?

Book 1 – Recipes for Life series. Book 2 – Recipe for Mr Perfect. Book 3 – Recipe for Mr Super.

Available as an eBook & audiobook on all platforms. Paperback available from all good bookshops and online stores.

Anni Rose

Anni lives in Wiltshire with her husband, her sister, two dogs, a cat and a grey speckled hen. She has had a number of short stories published in various magazines and her work also appears in a number of anthologies.

She has wanted to write for as long as she can remember. As a child, she produced reams of stories. Thankfully most of them have been lost over the years, although the ‘Attack of the Killer Tomatoes’ did resurface recently! And when not writing, she read voraciously.

Work might have got in the way for a while, but writing was a love that never died and she loves it as much now as she did back then.

These days, she writes modern day romances with – spoiler alert – a happy ending and a healthy dollop of humour thrown in.

Away from writing, Anni can usually be found behind a camera, walking her dogs, enjoying her husband’s curries or one of her sister’s bakery treats.

    I won this from you recently and it was just the tonic I needed, light and funny.. I laughed out load on more than occasion. Like Ruby I enter lots of competitions and have won some really weird things too. I couldn’t believe it when on page 257 it said she had won A Tartan Army Songbook, it was the first prize I ever won and the family laughed at it, I have improved with my prizes since then.

    I loved this book! A cup of romance, a dash of treachery, and a heaping spoon of humor! I could not put this book down and I heartily recommend it – a great summer read!

    This is a really different romance. A lot of twists and turns make for a page turner. Ruby is at home have been made redundant and is trying to get her life back together. Enter a parcel for a neighbour and from there on the tangles occur. The problems she encounters are unfortunately all very believable in this day and age which makes it so much more poignant. Adam is the ideal person for her but she struggles to see this, owing to her history. A gripping romance which I am sure you will enjoy as much as I did.

    Ruby is an Events Planner who has been made redundant so while on garden leave is filling her time entering 10 competitions a day (regardless of the prize) as this was her goal for happiness until she could achieve her real goal of being her own boss. She also has to contend with an unfinished kitchen due to a dodgy kitchen fitter.
    Adam is a chef who is staying in the flat on the next floor and Adam is drawn to Ruby however has a problem with Emily, who claims she is her boyfriend.
    Throw into the mix a reality show, a Producer who needed to prove his worth to his new boss, a stalker and of course the adorable Brutus the dog and this is a fantastic read. I adored Ruby, who was fun, didn’t suffer fools gladly and would help anyone if she could.
    I loved the main characters and I wanted Ruby to find her happy ever after but can she?
    A book full of humour but with a serious element too that in my opinion was not made light of.
    I would highly recommend this book, you really won’t be disappointed

    Once I got into this book, I found it interesting and enjoyable – I read it in two sittings as I needed to find out how it finished (very well actually), so couldn’t leave it alone for long. Ruby’s ideas about making a living are a bit quirky to say the least – but it seems to work for her. And the romance department also works out in the end – through lots of ups and downs. I enjoyed the experience, and can happily give it a good solid 4 stars.

    This is such a fun story from start to finish. How many of us have dreamed of winning prizes in competitions and even on the lottery. Well this is Ruby’s ambition for a year. Fun and adventure follows with a dash of handsome chef Adam and his dog Brutus and possibly the worst kitchen fitter ever!! Some laugh out loud moments from this super new author.

    This is so good that when I reached the end I wanted to return to page one and start all over again.

    All through ‘Recipe for Mr Right’, Ruby is entering ten competitions each and every day while on ‘garden leave’, even if she has no interest in the prize offered, some of the prizes she won are truly weird. The author’s dry sense of humour had me constantly laughing.

    A twisted plot to keep the reader’s attention, Ruby’s antics are hilarious.

    Hope that Anni Rose is working on her next book, I look forward to reading it.
