Food Whore - Promo & Giveaway


Food Whore:
A Novel of Dining and Deceit
By: Jessica Tom
Releasing October 27, 2015
William Morrow

Blurb

Full of wit and mouth-watering cuisines, Jessica Tom’s debut novel offers a clever insider take on the rarefied world of New York City’s dining scene in the tradition of The Devil Wears Prada meets Kitchen Confidential.

Food whore (n.) A person who will do anything for food.

When Tia Monroe moves to New York City, she plans to put herself on the culinary map in no time. But after a coveted internship goes up in smoke, Tia’s suddenly just another young food lover in the big city.

But when Michael Saltz, a legendary New York Times restaurant critic, lets Tia in on a career-ending secret—that he’s lost his sense of taste—everything changes. Now he wants Tia to serve as his palate, ghostwriting his reviews. In return he promises her lavish meals, a bottomless cache of designer clothing, and the opportunity of a lifetime. Out of prospects and determined to make it, Tia agrees.

Within weeks, Tia’s world transforms into one of luxury: four-star dinners, sexy celebrity chefs, and an unlimited expense account at Bergdorf Goodman. Tia loves every minute of it…until she sees her words in print and Michael Saltz taking all the credit. As her secret identity begins to crumble and the veneer of extravagance wears thin, Tia is forced to confront what it means to truly succeed—and how far she’s willing to go to get there.

Happy Pub Day to Bittersweet Creek - And a giveaway!

Summary:
From the author of The Happy Hour Choir comes a Romeo and Juliet story with Southern flair--witty, warm, and as complex and heart-wrenching as only love and family can be.

For a century and a half, the Satterfield and McElroy farms have been separated by a narrow creek and a whole lot of bad blood. Both sides have done their share of damage. But the very worst crime either family can commit is to fall in love with the enemy. As teenagers, Romy Satterfield and Julian McElroy did exactly that. Then, on the night they were secretly married by a justice of the peace, Julian stood Romy up. 

Ten years later, Romy is poised to marry the scion of one of Nashville's most powerful families. First she has to return home to Ellery to help her injured father--and to finalize her divorce. For Julian, seeing Romy again brings into relief the secrets he's kept and the poison that ran through his childhood. Romy has missed the farm and the unpretentious, downright nosy townsfolk. In spite of her efforts, she's also missed Julian. But though she suspects there's more to that long-ago night than Julian ever revealed, the truth will either drive her away for good, or reveal what is truly worth fighting for. . .

Dana Bate Has Cooked Up Another Amazing Book - Review & Giveaway

Review by Darcie Czajkowski
A born and bred Midwesterner, Kelly Madigan has always lived within the boundaries of her comfort zone. She plays it safe, in life and love, in an effort to combat her quirky childhood with two parents who barely had a handle on the basics of parenthood, let alone the complexities. Their lack of participation in her and her brother Stevie’s lives didn’t denote a dearth of love, and they knew this; still, it translated to a lack of stability, which Kelly has been determined to counteract as an adult.

In doing so, she’s been dating a gorgeous, successful doctor named Sam for six years. They live together in Chicago, where Sam has dreams of joint home-buying that he wants to translate into concrete plans. Only Kelly has doubts. She can’t put her finger on what’s holding her back from saying yes, since Sam is the perfect boyfriend in all respects, but something nags at her, urging her to delay the process.

But when her mom passes away, the outline of Kelly’s careful world is expanded. Her mother’s death is unexpected to everyone except her mother, who, aside from her doctor, was the only one to know about her heart muscle condition. In her mother’s typical “I’ll take care of it later” fashion, she failed to follow up with the doctor but managed to write her children letters with uncharacteristic advice for their lives. In this letter, among other things, her mother encourages Kelly to take more risks. Get out of the Midwest. See the world.

It seems serendipitous, almost as if orchestrated by her mother from beyond the grave, when she receives a call from famous movie star Natasha Spencer’s assistant, who delivers the news that Natasha would like Kelly to come to London, where she currently lives with her British politician, Hugh, and ghostwrite her cookbook.

Kelly is stunned by the offer, and even more stunned, when she finds herself breaking up with Sam. Yet she feels invigorated by the prospect of leaving the country for the first time and embarking on an adventure abroad.
Only things in London aren’t so jolly. Natasha is an employee’s nightmare. She is every stereotype of an egotistical actress come to life. Selfish. Controlling. Demanding. Condescending.

But Kelly loves her work, developing, testing, and perfecting recipes, which she executes with aplomb, dazzling everyone, including Hugh. Turns out, cooking isn’t the only thing that entices Kelly to stay. As the kitchen heats up, so do Kelly’s feelings for Hugh.

Will the cookbook turn out to be a culinary delight, or will it go up in flames, along with Kelly’s professional and personal lives?

This book is quintessential Dana Bate, from the smooth, enticing prose, to the witty, spunky dialogue, both of which work concertedly to make foodie fiction an addictive read. Though Bate sticks to her typical character sketch of a self-deprecating protagonist as much as she follows her go-to chapter endings which portend hyperbolic ruin in the protagonist’s life, I still found myself relating to Kelly’s determination to make something of herself. To get out of her hometown and see the world as more accessible, realizing that her generation is no longer tethered to the city or region in which you were born.

As a foodie myself, I loved the breadth of recipes with which Kelly experiments, though this story extends beyond food and will capture readers who identify with Kelly’s struggle with an attraction to an unavailable man. While the story is not advocating for infidelity, it underscores the complexity of love, and the fact that the emotion not only has the power to make your heart soar, but also to destroy it. I’d recommend this book for all of the aforementioned reasons, but most of all, because it serves as a reminder that we have to go after our dreams, which should involve risks where we can’t see the ground beneath us. Life isn’t always easy and it’s never perfect, but it is an adventure, one which we are all just figuring out as we go along.

Corrupted - Giveaway

Bennie Rosato the founder of the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm hides her big heart beneath her tough-as-nails exterior and she doesn't like to fail. Now, a case from her past shows her how differently things might have turned out. Thirteen years ago, Bennie Rosato took on Jason Lefkavick, a twelve-year-old boy who was sent to a juvenile detention center after fighting a class bully. Bennie couldn't free Jason, and to this day it's the case that haunts her. Jason has grown up in and out of juvenile prison, and his adulthood hasn't been any easier. Bennie no longer represents those accused of murder, but when Jason is indicted for killing the same bully he fought with as a kid, she sees no choice but to represent him. She doesn't know whether or not to believe his claims of innocence, but she knows she owes him for past failures-of the law, of the juvenile justice system, and of herself. Forced to relive the darkest period of her life, Bennie will do everything in her power to get the truth, and justice.

If I Could Turn Back Time - Review & Giveaway

Review by Marlene Engel
Ramie has a life than many only dream of.  At 38 years old, she has a successful career and rubs elbows with the rich and famous.  Much different than the middle-class lifestyle she grew up in.  But the older she gets, the more she realizes that something’s missing.  While on a boat with friends, she consumes one too many drinks and decides to dive into the water.  The next thing she knows, she’s back in her childhood bed being woken up for school.  School?  Wait!  How did that happen?

She comes to realize that it’s the eve of her eighteenth birthday.  But how could that be?  It must be a dream, but she’s not waking up.  So she just goes with it.  Hey, being 18 again with a flat stomach, smooth skin and the smarts of a 38 year old?  This may not be a bad thing after all.  She starts to wonder if she changes some things in the past, if it will affect her future differently.  Maybe she can prevent her father’s death.  Or change the outcome of the relationship she had with her high school sweetheart. 

Let’s be honest.  Who hasn’t thought … what if I did this differently?  Would things have turned out better?  Or, if I had a time machine, I’d go back to (fill in the blank) and change that.  But what many of us don’t think about is how the choices we made, no matter good or bad, have shaped the person we are today.  And if we could go back in time, how the changes would affect our future and the future of those close to us.  It’s a true tale of shoulda, woulda, coulda.  Though true to Beth Harbison form, the book was fun, witty and highly entertaining, she also got you thinking.  I found myself putting the book down and pondering if I would’ve done things the same as Ramie.  And, to be honest, I don’t know how I would’ve handled things if I were in her position. 

Once again Beth Harbison writes a book worthy of accolades. With characters you can relate to and a story that has you laughing one minute and puts you in serious thought the next, this book is one that should be on everyone’s To Be Read list.

House Trained - Review & Giveaway

Review by Marlene Engel
With the first line of the book reading … This morning I overheard my husband talking to his penis … I knew right away that this was a book I was going to enjoy.  But don’t let the opening line fool you into thinking that this is solely a fluffy read.  With real-life struggles and situations that would turn the most perfect lives upside down, there is much depth to this story. 

Perfectionist Alex is an interior designer who has been married to Barry for many years.  Childless by choice, they are the parents to an adorable labradoodle.  But their lives get upended when Barry discovers that he is the father to a teenage girl, and grandfather to Ruthie.  Although this is a lot for them to digest, it doesn’t take long for Ruthie to grab hold of their hearts.  Now, they not only have the challenge of figuring out what to do with their new-found daughter and granddaughter, but the ex is trying to make her way into the equation. 

What I love about Jackie Bouchard’s books is that she perfectly weaves amazing, relatable stories with adorable four-legged friends.  There’s truth to the saying that ‘dog is man’s best friend.’  Having a dog play a good part of the book adds an element of warmth and love that just can’t be found else ware.  A great book from beginning to end, this is a story you won’t want to miss.

When the voices don't talk to her, she can often be found staring into the refrigerator. After growing up in Southern California, Jackie moved to Bermuda, where she met her husband. Now back in San Diego, American Jackie, her Canadian hubby, and her Mexican rescue mutt form their own happy little United Nations.

A Guy + A Cat = A Great Read! Plus a Giveaway!

Review by Janine Rowe
A heartfelt and inspiring story of James Bowen, a London street musician, and his faithful feline companion Bob. 

In this book, James looks back on one of the toughest Christmases with Bob and how they survived, yet made a memorable Christmas for themselves and James’ good friend Belle. 

The book is filled with delightful stories like when James is desperate for money and his supporters at the Angel Station are there to give him donations and when James gives back to those who help him by handing out Christmas cards.  Gut wrenching stories of an encounter with a drug dealer and how James and Bob managed to get away from him and the heartbreaking tale of Belle’s lost Christmas gift.  These are just a few of the stories in this book.  If you are in need of inspiration this holiday season, or just any time you want a feel good story, I would recommend reading this book.  It left me feeling inspired to do something good for someone.  I also enjoyed the illustrations at the end of each chapter.  I thought that was a special touch
