Last Mango in Paris
By (author) Posy Jones
V&A fashion researcher, Lily Nightingale, is working on a new exhibition: The Legacy of Lingerie. She collects beautiful underwear as a hobby, but is unlucky in love – until she meets a famous French author-chef, Charles Amiel, while researching lingerie in Paris. It’s not just the Channel that divides them. His career is, of course, more important that hers. He’s so unsuitable. Older than her. Drinks a bit. Pedantic. Set in his ways. Old School. And so infuriatingly…French! But his series of classic cook books are revered across the globe. And he’s equally famous for making rude remarks about frothy, untrained celebrity cooks. Charles is well versed in avoiding romantic commitment – but when Lily serves him roast lamb while wearing beautiful vintage lingerie in her little London flat, it seems she has found the perfect combination…and he is besotted! But when she then turns her idea into a book, Last Mango in Paris – a simple guide about how to impress men through the power of food and underwear – tagline – ‘it really is that easy!’ she soon finds she’s outselling the great Charles Amiel.
