Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nothing gets Eleanor Samuels's heart racing like a double scoop of mocha fudge chunk. Sure, the magazine writer may have some issues aside from food, but she isn't quite ready to face them. Then her beloved Uncle Benny falls ill, and what at first seems scary and daunting becomes a blessing in disguise. Because while she cooks and cares for him — and enjoys a delicious flirtation with a new chef in town — Eleanor begins to uncover some long-buried secrets about her emotionally frayed family and may finally get the chance to become the woman she's always wanted to be.

Review:

"A delightful, charming heroine....I loved this book." Ayelet Waldman, author of Daughter's Keeper

Review:

"A novel you don't soon forget." Valerie Frankel, author of the Girlfriend Curse

Review:

"Exactly the kind of book I most love to read — rich, funny, sad, sensual, and hopeful. I devoured every single word....Jennie Shortridge['s] books are a tonic to the heart." Barbara Samuel, author of Lady Luck's Map of Vegas

Review:

"A perfect balance of sweet, sour, salty, and savoury." Jackie Moyer Fischer, author of An Egg of Three Sticks

Synopsis:

When her beloved uncle falls ill, and she begins to cook and care for him, Eleanor Samuels begins to uncover some long-buried secrets about her emotionally frayed family and may finally get the chance to become the woman she's always wanted to be.

About the Author

A life-long musician and songwriter, Jennie Shortridge first started singing in bars with rock bands at the tender (and illegal) age of 16. She fronted numerous bands in the Denver area for fifteen years and continues to perform in coffee houses in an acoustic duo with her husband Matt. She also has worked in corporate marketing, advertising, and public relations. Besides our publication of Riding with the Queen, her fiction has been published in Byline magazine, and her freelance articles have appeared in Glamour, Mademoiselle, and other national magazines.

I picked this book up the summer of 2007....little did I know that by that fall my husband would be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The same cancer as Uncle Benny. This book helped me understand what we were going through and that we were facing a life ending cancer.

Barbara Stone, January 6, 2007 (view all comments by Barbara Stone)
A wonderful novel about the possibilities for growth, for families (no matter what form they take) and for healing. You feel compassion for all of the pain in the people around her and joy in their discovery of what their love for each other can accomplish.
