Scarlet Feather by Maeve Binchy
Cathy Scarlet and her friend Tom Feather start a new catering business in Dublin. The book's chapters are by the new month and go through their first year of business. Planning weddings, family relations, and stresses of personal life and two odd children Maud and Simon. The book is told from several POV but is done fairly seemlessly. And even though it is set in Ireland, Binchy doesn't write in accent.
I found myself needing an apple or piece of bread often when reading, lots of food talk, but as Cathy Scarlet complains more than once, "Whatever made us think that a catering business had anything to do with producing food?"
This is the last of a family series that she has been writing. I may need to go back and start the series. You can get the story without reading the others, but you can tell there is backstories to these characters. Quite a good read.
