Those Pleasant Girls, by Lia Weston, is a story about second chances. The synopsis says: "Evie Pleasant, nee Bouvier, is back in town. In a figure-hugging skirt, high heels and a pin-up hairdo, she's unrecognisable from the wild child who waged war on Sweet Meadow in her youth.
She's made a promise to herself: 'No swearing. No drinking. No stealing. No fires.' Trailing a reluctant 16-year-old daughter and armed with cake-making equipment, Evie's divorce and impending poverty has made her desperate enough to return to Sweet Meadow to seduce her former partner-in-crime and start again.
But the townsfolk have long memories and the renegade ex-boyfriend is now the highly-respected pastor. Evie's cakes have a job to do." Those Pleasant Girls is out in April 2017.
