Georgia's Kitchen by Jenny Nelson


Synopsis from Goodreads:  At thirty-three, talented chef Georgia Gray has everything a woman could want—the top job at one of Manhattan’s best restaurants; a posse of smart and savvy gal pals who never let her down; and a platinum-set, cushion-cut diamond engagement ring courtesy of Glenn, the handsome entertainment lawyer who Georgia’s overbearing mother can’t wait for her to marry. The table is set for the ambitious bride-to-be until a scathing restaurant review destroys her reputation. To add salt to her wounds, Glenn suddenly calls off the wedding.

Brokenhearted, Georgia escapes to the Italian countryside, where she sharpens her skills at a trattoria run by a world-class chef who seems to have it all—a devoted lover, a magnificent villa, and most important, a kitchen of her own. Georgia quells her longings with Italy’s delectable offerings: fine wine, luscious cheeses, cerulean blue skies, and irresistible Gianni—an expert in the vineyard and the bedroom. So when Gianni tempts Georgia to stay in Italy with an offer no sane top chef could refuse, why can’t she say yes?
An appetite for something more looms large in Georgia’s heart – the desire to run her own restaurant in the city she loves. But having left New York with her career in flames, she’ll need to stir up more than just courage if she’s to realize her dreams and find her way home.

My thoughts:  Georgia's Kitchen is full of all of the things that make a novel satisfying.  There are great friends, a little drama, beautiful settings and a bit of a love story.  Another strong woman taking charge of her life when she's been knocked down.  

This is one of those stories that you know is going to have a happy ending and you can sort of predict what is going to happen, but its okay.  It left me wanting to hop a flight to Italy to visit.  Don't read this while you are hungry because the food descriptions will make your mouth water.

This is a great read for anyone wanting a quick escape.  It fit perfectly into my quest for light summer reading.

Disclosure:  My copy of Georgia's Kitchen was provided to me by the publicist with the hope that I would review it
