Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A unique voice, Melissa Jacobs delivers a second fun–filled, food–filled novel.

Mimi's life is an open book, or rather, an open menu.

A restaurant consultant, she's helped launch some of the best restaurants in Philly and around the world. And she even managed to turn her boyfriend Nick into the nation's hottest celebrity chef. But when she comes home and discovers that Nick's got a secret tongue–pierced girl on the side, Mimi realizes she doesn't have the secret to success after all.

Needing a change of pace, Mimi heads home to New Jersey. The family restaurant is failing and her brother, unknown to anyone, has made plans to sell. The ultimate Restaurant Diva, Mimi sets out to save the family business––a decision thatt leads her to two potentially perfect new men.

All her life Mimi has believed that everyone has one true Soul Mate, but now she's thinking that idea should be tossed out with last night's leftovers. Maybe it's time to select her men the way she selects pastries and produce and sample all there is to offer.

Synopsis:

Restaurant consultant par excellence and confirmed romantic Mimi Louis has already launched some of Philly's hottest high-end eateries, while transforming her boyfriend Nick into a sought-after celebrity chef. And what thanks does she get for her efforts? She finds the cad cavorting with another wom an! Heartbroken — her cherished belief in One True Soulmate suddenly in the trash with last night's leftovers — the betrayed "Restaurant Diva" takes drastic action: she starts over. Returning home to New Jersey, Mimi sets her sights on rescuing the now-failing family business, Café Louis, determined to forget about love, sex, and all that other nonsense. Unfortunately, there's a menu full of tasty, available men right across the counter. Maybe her romantic hunger strike isn't the answer. Maybe it's time Mimi began selecting her men the way she picks pastries and produce, by sampling all the best before choosing a main dish. Because life, after all, should be a banquet . . .
