Eat Cake by Jeanne Ray

Eat cake is a delicious novel that is good for an appetite at any time. Light hearted comedy family drama which has all run for the emotions. The novel is written beautifully and revolves around the favorite dessert of the world… Cake.  
 Plus as a added bonus it also has a cake recipe on the back cover, I tried cooking it with…err...lets comment on my cooking skills later.

The Plot
*Spoiler warning: This reveals some part of the book*
Ruth, a married mother of two, is finding out that marriage is not always a bliss. Her normal life with a hospital administrator husband, surly teenage daughter and son at college is quickly disappearing as, within a year, Ruth’s mother comes to live with them, her husband loses his job and Ruth begins to wonder if her life is ever going to be happy again. The situation goes from bad to worse when Ruth’s father, who has been separate from his family since Ruth was two years old, calls to announce he has broken both of his wrists and needs to move in with them while he recovers. 
Suddenly, Ruth is faced with an unemployed husband who thinks his life’s dream is to rebuild yachts and two parents who have hated each other for over fifty years and now must live under the same roof. Ruth feels helpless, and the only thing that makes her feel better while taking refuse inside the soft bread of a cake. Can Ruth save the family? How can eating cake solve her problems?
