I absolutely adored this book. Partly because I'm a cook and I love food, but OMG, watching Max and Jules deal with their family stuff (and help each other deal!) and figure out what they really wanted from life was incredibly powerful. I was verklempt for the last thirty pages at least. This book was completely note-perfect, I loved every character, and I want to eat EVERYTHING described. I ordered all five of Edwards's other books immediately on finishing this one, that's how much I loved it. A completely satisfying reading experience.
