Originally published in: 2009

What it’s about: A group of individuals who sign up for a cooking class and how it changes their lives.

What made me pick it up: It has a very engaging cover. The audio was only six hours long.

My favorite things: This book is sweet. I enjoyed all of the characters and the way their stories came full circle in the end. I always enjoy reading about food and cooking, so the descriptions of dishes in this book enchanted me. It might make you hungry. Or at least inspired to cook.

Who it’s great for: Cooks and wannabe cooks. Fans of friendship stories and love stories. Those looking for a fairly gentle novel.

Erica’s rating: four-shells
