One of the best foodie novels I've read in years! Tia Monroe moved to New York to go to one of the best food studies graduate programs. Her greatest passion in life is writing about food and all she has dreamed about is landing an internship with Helen Laskey, the greatest cookbook author and foodie in New York. Things take a turn though when she doesn't land her chosen internship and is approached by a New York Times food critic who want to do nothing more than exploit her. Backed into a corner and hoping that this unorthodox arrangement will get her closer to the Helen Laskey internship, she agrees to write and taste for the food critic who has recently lost his taste buds. It obviously has to remain anonymous, both their reputations are on the line, but she is dying to tell someone; her boyfriend, her roommate, her co-workers. The secrets keep adding up and she isn't sure how much longer she can keep leading a double life. Is writing about food worth it? Is she going about it the wrong way? Exquisite. The way she writes about food and relationships will make you insatiably hungry for more. A great debut novel.

I received this book for free from Library Thing in return for my honest, unbiased opinion.
