Eating Heavenby Jennie Shortridge
Synopses & Reviews
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.

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