I started this book because I liked the premise of moving through the pain of divorce by learning to cook. There is a saucy man with an accent to spice it up as well. I enjoyed all the trials and tribulations the main character went through. I have to say, at the end I was disappointed. Spoiler--Why would you go back to your husband, back to comfort when you had come so far and stood on your own? I really felt like all her personal growth was wasted by the time the end came. Still there were a few jewels in the story.

"One needed to be self-sufficient when surrounded by those who treasured paper over people."
On describing the spicy (brief) love interest, "His honesty is like swallowing a chunk of jalapeno."
My favorite line was, "I've known his face for so long that I can't help but allow my eyes to travel to all my favorite spots." Ahh, I know exactly what that feels like.
The best advice the book offered-"that there is not point in saving face if it makes you lose everything else."
