The Stall Of Second Chances – Dana Bate
Source: Review copy courtesy of Corsair books. Thanks guys.
Sydney Strauss is obsessed with food. Not with eating it–though she does that too–but with writing about the wonders of the gastronomic world, from obscure fruit hybrids to organic farming techniques. Since food journalism jobs are more coveted than Cronuts®, Sydney pays her bills working for one of TV’s biggest egomaniacs–until she’s left scrambling for shifts at a local farmers’ market.
Stacking muffins for the Wild Yeast Bakery isn’t going to win her any James Beard awards. But soon Sydney is writing the market’s weekly newsletter, and her quirky stories gain attention from a prominent food columnist. After years of putting her love life into deep freeze, she’s even dating again. And then Sydney gets a shot at the story, one that could either make her career or burn it to a crisp–along with her relationship and her reputation…
The Stall Of Second Chances is every food and romance lovers dream. Packed full of delicious food, and men. Family and friendship. It is seriously drama central. Lies, deceit, secrets. It’s all going on in heroine Sydney Strauss’s life.
Now I’m very hard to please, and I have to admit I loved the whole idea of this book. And the plot is good. Unfortunately, I just felt it dragged on and lacked suspense. I detested Sydney and her poor me attitude, and how she thought she was better than people. She spoilt the book a lot for me.
