I got this as an ARC at work, intrigued by the plot and the integration of recipes into the narrative. Unfortunately, the book didn't deliver on it's promises. The characters were dull and predictable, the plot boring and the recipes completely ridiculous. Above all, I felt like the author was part of a very conservative, staid generation that can't actually relate to modern life. None of the relationships felt real enough for the 21st century--that is if, as I assume, it was supposed to be a contemporary story? Not to mention that Angelina's grief at the death of her husband seemed to disappear early into the novel. Don't waste your time, folks.
