When I give a book a rating of “3” that doesn’t mean I don’t like the book, it just means it didn’t give me a lot to ponder. I really enjoyed this book. Of course, the food elements always add to the enjoyment of a book for me, but it didn’t leave me with new ideas. It left me satisfied, just what a “summer read” should do, it allowed my brain to go on vacation and just enjoy.

The book's surprise ending made it worth my while to endure a tedious plot.

Who leaves a thriving restaurant to be with her ailing mother but says barely a word about the mother's passing or the father's subsequent care-giver-fatigue fatal illness?

What happened during the life-altering trip to rehab?

Who takes a trip to a lavish beach cottage but visits the beach only once?

Instead the author plodded through a series of booze and drug soaked nights and weekends without revealing much about why the characters needed so desperately to imbibe mind-altering substances. The ending gave me whiplash, and I wish the author had invested more in the characters' evolution and transformation.
