***** Couldn’t help myself: Finished it in one day M. Maltbie
This was a great feel-good story. I sat myself in a rocking chair on the front veranda and snuggled into the story. … In several hours I was done. … I had tears in my eyes, but … I was smiling too! I loved the characters. I appreciated the little bits of humor tucked here and there. … Please, sir, write another one quick!
***** An entertaining summer read An Educated Consumer (Floral Park, NY)
This book was what great summer novels are made of: family, friendship, illness, love story, lots of incredible food, mystery, and an interesting setting on Chappaquiddick Island, Massachusetts. … I’m glad to see that Steven Raichlen is venturing into novels along with his wonderful cookbooks. I hope this is only the first of many more to come.
***** Great Summer Read….love, redemption, and great food! BBQ U Spouse
I read it from cover-to-cover in less than 24 hours—just couldn’t put it down. The characters are real, perfectly flawed and engaging. Highly recommended!
***** Love And Loss On An Island! Patty Magyar (Kennett Square, PA)
Oh my…I laughed…I cried…but I ultimately loved this novel! I truly think you will, too!
***** Wonderful Book…for foodies or not! Caffeinebrain
All you foodies out there will really enjoy reading this love story between two unlikely cooking fiends who find each other. … We have the intricate combination of wounded souls, Chappaquiddick, secrets, and ultimately life, love, family and friendship, tragedy and healing. A well-written book that just captures you immediately.
***** A romanticized look at Chappaquiddick Island Neal Reynolds
I’m a fan of Raichlen’s cookbooks, but I wasn’t sure how he’d be as a novel writer. … I am glad I took the chance … I was hooked from the first chapter.
