Helen McNeil is a vet in the small rural town of Broadview. While taking evasive action from a dull girl at a party one night she falls over – and fails to recognise – national sporting hero, Mark Tipene. For some mysterious reason Helen never really grasps, Mark finds this charming and appears the next day at the front counter of the vet clinic to ask her out.
A whirlwind romance follows and everything is going swimmingly until one little hiccup changes everything…
Chocolate Cake for Breakfast is the funny and heart-warming story of the pros and cons of dating a man who is recognised across the country, of calving cows and crazy cat ladies, and of doing your best when life takes an unexpected turn.
