The Flavours of Love by Dorothy Koomson


‘The Flavour of Love’ is British author Dorothy Koomson’s ninth novel. The story is told through the eyes of Saffron Mackleroy, whose husband was murdered 18 months prior.

Koomson states, ‘The Flavours of Love deals with some more difficult issues, one of which is especially close to my heart.’


‘I’m looking for that perfect blend of flavours; the taste that used to be you. If I find it, I know you’ll come back to me.’

It’s been 18 months since my husband was murdered and I’ve decided to finish writing The Flavours of Love, the cookbook he started before he died. Everyone thinks I’m coping so well without him – they have no idea what I’ve been hiding or what I do away from prying eyes. But now that my 14-year-old daughter has confessed something so devastating it could destroy our family all over again, and my husband’s killer has started to write to me claiming to be innocent, I know it’s only a matter of time before the truth about me and what I’ve done is revealed to the world.

My name is Saffron Mackleroy and this is my story.

The Flavours of Love was published in November by Quercus Books and is available at Amazon.
