“This was such an enjoyable short story. Usually I find with short stories that I don’t get enough information to really sink my teeth into a story. But not with this one, R.J. Scott’s writing style is so beautiful and effortless that it captures everything you need to know even in a short story…”

“This is a well written feel good story about love and loss and learning how to deal with both. I would highly recommend this story.”

“There are wonderful recipes and mentions of food throughout this short tale. This is the kind of book that warms the heart and soul and makes the reader feel good after it’s all over.”

For a Rainy Afternoon

Maybe it’s not just Robbie and Jason that can have the greatest love story ever told.

Robbie runs a small Post Office made from a converted Station House in a village northwest of London, England. He is stunned when a close friend dies and leaves him half of her estate. The only proviso is that it is to be shared equally with an American stranger, Jason, who has recently moved to the village.

The sealed box that they jointly inherit includes several rare first editions and an old cookery book. Only when the secrets of the ingredients in a particular recipe are finally revealed does everything begin to make sense... and a love story that began seventy years ago can finally be celebrated.
