Book #37 Read in 2014
Delicious by Ruth Reichl
This book was a great read for foodies, romantics, readers and people who just enjoy good writing. In this book, Billie heads to New York City and finds an assistant job at a culinary magazine. She finds some old letters between a young girl and a culinary expert from the magazine and she thinks that they might perhaps make a good book. More importantly, Billie becomes engaged with the story of these letters and wants to find out more about the people involved. At the same time, she fights some of her own demons and moves on with her life.
I really liked the writing of this book. The characters were engaging and interesting. I liked the balance of a great setting, romance, history and humor. I recommend this book.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review through the Amazon Vine program.
