Publisher's Write-Up

Angie Howard has one ambition - to escape from her home in the idyllic Essex countryside and set up her own cafe in London. Once there, she seeks out her long-lost Uncle John, whose lifestyle is not at all what she expected.

Before she can achieve her goal, she has to juggle the needs of a glamorous French waiter, a grouchy German chef and her exuberant, transvestite uncle. What's more, if she manages to keep the lid on all that, what will she do about the other hidden secrets of her family?

Pink Champagne and Apple Juice is the hot read for the summer. A great book to take on holiday or just unwind with.

The storyline is about Angie who flees from her very loving home to make her mark in the world. She wants to set up her own café in London and looks up her Uncle John who she hasn’t seen for many years and turns up unannounced.

Maybe Angie should have had some hints that all would not be as it seems, when she asks for directions to his address and is met with ‘you want where?’

Her first meeting with Uncle John is a memorable one and the story of why Uncle John has not been around for years unfolds with interesting and sad reasons.

Mixed in with this are the people who work for Uncle John, namely a gorgeous French waiter, a grumpy German chef and a soft hearted bouncer.
It’s a comedy mixed with love and drama and has been attracting cult status amongst its readers. It would make a superb Brit film.

Anne's brilliant mixture of humour, characters and description, without being boring, helped make this a very visual book. I didn't want to put the book down, had read it within two days of purchasing it and I really hope there is a sequel to it.
