The Love Season by Elin Hilderbrand
The Love Season

Jennifer Kulman, August 13, 2007

The focus of the book is an event that happened nearly 15 years ago, which caused Marguerite to abruptly close her successful Nantucket restaurant and become a recluse. The book alternates between telling the story in the present while giving details about the past.

The way it is written is captivating, waiting to find out what had happened so many years ago. And also to piece together what became of her best friend, her best friend's husband, and her lover, none of whom are a part of Marguerite's present life.

The Good Cookie: Over 250 Delicious Recipes from Simple to Sublime by Tish Boyle
The Good Cookie: Over 250 Delicious Recipes from Simple to Sublime

Jennifer Kulman, July 27, 2007

If you know a cookie baker, definitely buy this for their collection. I've found so many cookie books are just the same old recipes put together with new photos. Tish Boyle has carefully put together a whole new collection here. There are 250 recipes for you to try - ranging from simple to sophisticated. I like that this is a heavy, quality book, though it could use a few more photos.

The Family Fortune by Laurie Horowitz
The Family Fortune

Jennifer Kulman, July 27, 2007

Just read the summary above and you won't have to bother reading the book. No surprises here, an ending we all see coming. And the characters are written in such an obvious way, so the readers are all supposed to be pulling for Jane, the main character.

Oh, Jane, she might be dull and not as pretty as her sister, but she's dependable. Wait, what's this! Jane is losing weight and getting her hair cut. Buying new clothes. She's a stunner! And she might get the guy after all. Geez. Very predictable in an insulting way.

A Girl Becomes a Comma Like That by Lisa Glatt
A Girl Becomes a Comma Like That

Jennifer Kulman, July 8, 2007

Very sharply written. This tells the story from the viewpoint of several women - and what is wrong with their lives. I can't put my finger on exactly what it is I liked so much about this book, but I really liked it. Maybe not a book for men though, as it's really written from a woman's thoughts.

The Bread Book
The Bread Book

Jennifer Kulman, June 25, 2007

This is a good, sensible bread book. The descriptions are pretty involved (so novices can turn out good loaves) and there are tons of photos. I like to see photos of finished bread products, so I can really determine if it looks like something I want to make.

Varied types of recipes here - from yeast breads to quick breads to croissants and pita breads. And really, shouldn't everyone take the time in the morning to make their own english muffins?
