Nothing could be more Delicious! than another great read
by Ruth Reichl! Having started with Tender at the Bone in 1998 she may be the one responsible for my obsession with reading and eating!! This fabulous novel (completely fiction!) follows Billie Breslin a young woman from California who has dropped out of her last year of college to pursue a writing career in NYC. She finds herself at a magazine called Delicious! and so begins the fantastic journey, quirky characters, romance and even mysteries that surround this old company situated in an historical federal mansion uptown. Billie learns to make her way in the world, find out what her strengths and weaknesses are and allow herself the pleasure of falling in love. Her boss Jake, his mean assistant Maggie, world traveling Sammy, they are just a few of the incredible characters baked into this Delicious! pursuit for satisfying life's many cravings! This book is a WINNER and a fun light PERFECT summer read! So throw it in your beach bag but remember a snack too because it will make you very hungry!!  Delicious!: A Novel
