Not quite as good as Friday Night Knitting Club but it's still a fun, light summer read. ( )

Fun romp involving the drama, disasters, and power plays behind a cooking channel tv show. I listened to the audiobook read by Barbara Rosenblatt and her husky voice was interesting and funny when she voiced the different characters. It flowed nicely, caused me to laugh out loud on occasions, and kept my interest throughout. Recommended for a light and comical read. ( )

Oh---fun reading! Having watched my share of the Food Network Channel this was a speedy read about the life of a star---going up and down and sideways. Cheerful escapism! ( )

This just may have been the dullest book I've ever read. Too many characters, none of them endearing. The plot basically throws a bunch of people who are at a standstill in life together and attempts to make all of them find themselves. I would have much preferred if she concentrated on the main character and her daughters and explored more emotion. It was all superficial fluff. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399154655, Hardcover)

Now in paperback from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Friday Night Knitting Club...

Shortly before turning 50, TV cooking show personality Augusta "Gus" Simpson discovers that the network wants to boost her ratings by teaming her with a beautiful, young new co-host. But Gus isn't going without a fight-whether it's off-set with her two demanding daughters, on-camera with the ambitious new diva herself, or after-hours with Oliver, the new culinary producer who's raising Gus's temperature beyond the comfort zone. Now, in pursuit of higher ratings and culinary delights, Gus might be able to rejuvenate more than just her career.
