Love, Life and Linguineby Melissa Jacobs
Synopses & Reviews
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.
When she discovers that her boyfriend Nick, whom she had transformed into the country's hottest celebrity chef, has another girlfriend on the side, Mimi, a successful restaurant consultant, heads home to New Jersey, where she finds herself dealing with a failing family restaurant, a brother out to secretly sell the business, and two very different men. Original. 25,000 first printing.
