Updating my "read" books. I reviewed this for All About Romance years ago. The review is archived HERE

A Jewish family delicatessen empire overseen by a domineering 88 year old grandmother who calls the shots and decides her lawyer granddaughter will run the company even though she is employed elsewhere. I enjoyed that it was set in New York. There are several fun characters to enjoy in this light read. Just enough steaminess for a summer beachy read.

Cute story of a family who runs a deli in NYC. President of Blooms dies. Grandmother appoints Julie. Love story and family story.

This book appeared to be trying to portray an idiosyncratic but lovable family that unfortunately wasn't that loveable. Most characters didn't change much in the book, and the plot was... very unplotlike. Considering that the main event was the disappearance of 150 bagels a week (this was mentioned in every chapter) and then one of the characters told us who stole the bagels. Mystery solved. The writing was ok, but definitely not my favorite book.

The first third of the book was hard to get through due to repetitive whining by the main character. After that, it moved much faster.

Too silly for me. I skimmed through it.
