I thoroughly enjoyed The Love Goddess' Cooking School. Holly was a great character and I loved how her Nana's (I called my grandma that too) diaries helped complete the story. Each character takes on a personality at the hand of Melissa Senate and you find yourself cheering for each one as they shield their skeletons and move on with the help of food. Most of us know, or can recall a time, or even many times when food helped us cope, heal, share and deal with moments that may have caused us stress. I appreciated the simplicity of the story and how mature Holly became as the story progressed. In the beginning I wasn't sure if Holly was going to be a character I liked. After her initial breakup she seemed immature, unsure, lost, and alone, her transformation made the story and I rooted for her the whole way.
Looking forward to reading more of Melissa Senate's work.
