The last thing Melanie expected to lose when she went on a diet was her husband.
Former lawyer Melanie Hoffman lost half her body weight and opened a gourmet take-out café specializing in healthy and delicious food. Then her husband left her-for a woman twice her size. Immediately afterwards, she's blindsided by a financial crisis. Melanie reaches out to a quirky roommate with a ton of baggage and becomes involved in a budding romance with a local documentary filmmaker.
This was the first time I had read a book by this author and I was very pleased. This was a cute story and was a very fun read. This story actually gave me the desire to cook. I felt motivated and encouraged by this book which to me shows that it was well written. I now look forward to reading other things written by this author!
