Reading...When in Doubt Add Butter
|Amanda Waters||Jan 23, 2013|
I'm not gonna lie: there was no way after reading the title of this book that I wasn't going to read it. And I'm glad I did! It was an enjoyable, light read about a serial dater -- a funny, confident woman who makes her living as a personal chef -- who finds love unexpectedly. Although this is a classic romantic story -- told very well, with many swoony sighs -- it's almost more about Gemma herself than it is about Gemma finding love, and I liked that about it (In that way, I guess the book might better fit into the "chick lit" category). Gemma is passionate about food, and cooks for a wide variety of clients. Some are her friends -- or eventually become friends -- and some are more like enemies. And one may or may not be Russian mafia. Getting to know Gemma and her clients and watching those relationships develop was as much fun as seeing her find her way to romance.
Bottom line: a light, enjoyable read.
