The Love Goddess' Cooking School

The Love Goddess' Cooking School - Melissa Senate Melissa Senate knows how to craft the perfect Chick Lit book without being cliche, although I think this one would probably fall into the category of Contempory Fiction. I am pretty sure I proclaimed her last book, The Secret of Joy as her best book ever, but she keeps getting better. Can you tell how much I enjoy them? Holly has her heart broken and in her search to repair it, she starts teaching cooking after inheriting her grandmother's shop. Camille has a lot to teach Holly and the lessons come through as touching and poignant. Holly finds true friendship through cooking and sparkles when Juliet, Tamara and Mia (an almost teen) meet up with Simon. Holly falls for Liam, Mia's dad and tries to work through her past. They all have deep dark secrets and when they learn to share, the story really takes off. This reminded me a lot of The Friday Night Knitting Club, so if you enjoyed that, you will love this one!
