Foodie books are the best

I have this thing for books about food. I just find them relatable and easy to imagine. This book was full of good food imagery while also maintaining a good story line! Comforting, Easy read with a bit of a plot twist!

Great Storyline & Well Written! For James Beard Enthusiest!

It's been a while since I read this, but I truly enjoyed it! I'm going to struggle with not giving spoilers in order to give a somewhat decent review! This is such a fun read about decades of info that fictiously involves James Beard. A young woman goes to the NYC area looking for work and lands a job at a cooking magazine. The building isn't your ordinary structure, but an old, gorgeous, stately mansion. She makes a close bond with an eccentric fellow employee that has a zest for "living large" on his many trips for the company. They end up spending a lot of time in the old library on the 4th floor that has been locked away for around 2 decades(?). Their exploration leads them to discovering decades old info, but they must go on a hunt for old card catalog clues to keep revealing each next event that has been documented and stowed away by a past employee. The young woman's personal life is filled with several wonderful characters as she struggles to come to terms with certain issues while fulfilling her need for opening up to become loved and treasured for her empathic, yet spunky personality. There are a number of surprising events that take place; drawing you in to keep reading! I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. I plan to re-read this book in a few years! Now that I have thoroughly enjoyed this book, I'm interested in reading several more from this same author. She has a great writing style and great vocabulary.
