Screenwriter Nora Ephron's tabasco-spiked and bittersweet novel about a marriage on the rocks - a rollercoaster of love, betrayal, loss and - most satisfyingly - revenge.

Seven months into her pregnancy, irrepressible food writer Rachel Samstat discovers that her husband Mark - a man who ‘would be capable of having sex with a Venetian blind’ - is in love with another woman. In between trying to work out what went wrong, trying to win him back and loudly wishing him dead, Rachel offers us her favourite recipes.

Today: the heavily-pregnant Rachel gets an unexpected proposal...
