Book Review: Too Many Cooks

by: Dana Bate

A debut novel, how fun! I just liked the look of the story, and couldn't wait to give it a go.

I loved it. The main character is quirky and not quite sure what to do with herself. Kelly kind of fell into ghostwriting cookbooks, and has the perfect boyfriend...too perfect. When her mother dies and leaves her a letter about shaking up her life, and she gets a call from a movie star who wants her to ghostwrite a cookbook for her in London, she decides to go for it. How bad can it be, right?

The movie star is insane. And crazy she can handle. Her parents are pretty much out there, but this level of crazy would make anyone wonder what they had been thinking!

The lady has been a star too long and has no sense of reality anymore. She's in a loveless marriage, and Kelly develops a crush on the husband. That was not the romance I was expecting. I couldn't help cringing and hoping she wouldn't go there. But there is another possible match. So I am rooting for Henry, the young man she met through a mutual friend.

It's not surprise that Kelly really wonders what she is doing there. She absolutely loves cooking and she is great at it. Why is she writing cookbooks for other people?

What on earth will she do if she walks away from this.

Poor Kelly feels trapped.

Well written chick lit. Some romance, but this is about Kelly's journey.
