MUST LOVE BUTTER: The Cookbook Club is now open to members. Foodies come join us! No diets! No skipping dessert!
Margo Everson sees the call out for the cookbook club and knows she’s found her people. Recently dumped by her self-absorbed husband, who frankly isn’t much of a loss, she has little to show for her marriage but his ‘parting gift’—a dilapidated old farm house—and a collection of well-loved cookbooks
Aja Alexander just hopes her new-found friends won’t notice that that every time she looks at food, she gets queasy. It’s hard hiding a pregnancy, especially one she can’t bring herself to share with her wealthy boyfriend and his snooty mother.
Trista Walker left the cutthroat world of the law behind and decided her fate was to open a restaurant…not the most secure choice ever. But there she could she indulge her passion for creating delectable meals and make money at the same time.
The women bond immediately, but it’s not all popovers with melted brie and blackberry jam. Margo’s farm house is about to fall down around her ears; Trista’s restaurant needs a makeover and rat-removal fast; and as for Aja, just how long can you hide a baby bump anyway?
In this delightful novel, these women form bonds that go beyond a love grilled garlic and soy sauce shrimp. Because what is more important in life than friendship…and food?
The Cookbook Club : My Review
At first glance, this book pulled me in because I love the idea of a cookbook club. I myself have recently started cooking through the various cookbooks I own.
Margo, Trista and Aja are all brought together because of Trista starting the cookbook club in order to find new recipes to serve at a recently purchased bar.
The 3 of them hit it off immediately, and the rest is history.
The other characters that weave their way in are perfectly likable – everything winds up with a pretty bow in the end.
I think a little more character development would have been helpful, but I’ve really got nothing bad to say.
