Twenty-two-year-old James Gould arrives in Occupied Naples in 1943, where his duties include dissuading Allied soldiers from marrying their beautiful Italian girlfriends, and his diet includes little more than spam fritters and warmed-up rations.

The girls of Naples, however, soon arrange for a beautiful young country girl to join his staff as a cook. Under the twin influences of Italian food and Italian passion, James has only just realised that his heart is more important than his orders, when an eruption of Vesuvius sets in motion a series of epic events that will change their lives for ever.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Full of the same colour and verve as Capella's THE FOOD OF LOVE, this story also blends romance with gourmet delights * GOOD HOUSEKEEPING *
THE WEDDING OFFICER resembles a cross between CAPTAIN CORELLI'S MANDOLIN and CHOCOLAT, while remaining a charming and powerful fiction in its own right * Michael Arditti *
This is an engaging tale. It brims with fascinating historical detail, an infectious enthusiasm for southern Italy and its cuisine and is an undemanding and sympathetic love story * SUNDAY TIMES *
Spicy, funny, delicious and sexy, this is the perfect holiday book * EVENING HERALD *
