Duck à l'Orange for Breakfast - Book
What if the person getting you through the hardest time in your life is someone you've never met?
Maxine 'Max' Mayberry, an ad executive with writing ambitions, is holed up in a friend's apartment after discovering her long-term boyfriend in bed with another woman.
If that wasn't bad enough, Max has recently been diagnosed with a brain tumour.
Enter Johnny: a cheeky yet charming Tinder pen pal and the perfect distraction.
Together, Max and Johnny flirt and cook their way through The Laurent Family Cookbook, a recipe book from Max's ex-boyfriend's pretentious French family, without ever meeting in person.
The 'Fork Him' project starts as a joke, but soon transforms into something more meaningful as Max undergoes brain surgery, travels to Paris for a fresh start, and decides whether she believes in herself enough to chase the life - and the man - she really wants.
