With a title like “Comfort Food” and having read other books by this author I knew this would be a quick easy read. I picked it up at a library book sale because sometimes you just want to snuggle up with a super mindless yet entertaining book. Indeed the characters and plot were very easy to follow and I whizzed through it – a good beach read when you don’t have to concentrate.
The plot synopsis from Amazon reads :: “Shortly before turning 50, TV cooking show personality Augusta “Gus” Simpson discovers that the network wants to boost her ratings by teaming her with a beautiful, young new co-host. But Gus isn’t going without a fight-whether it’s off-set with her two demanding daughters, on-camera with the ambitious new diva herself, or after-hours with Oliver, the new culinary producer who’s raising Gus’s temperature beyond the comfort zone. Now, in pursuit of higher ratings and culinary delights, Gus might be able to rejuvenate more than just her career.”
