From the New York Times bestselling author of Shoe Addicts Anonymous and Always Something There to Remind Me, When in Doubt, Add Butter by Beth Harbison a delicious new novel about the search for true love and all the ingredients that go into it.

As far as Gemma is concerned, her days of dating are over. In fact, it’s her job to cater other peoples’ dates, and that’s just fine by her. At thirty-seven, she has her own business, working as a private chef, and her life feels full and secure. She’s got six steady clients that keep her hands full.

There’s Lex, the fussy but fabulous department store owner who loves Oysters Rockefeller and 1950s comfort food; Willa, who needs to lose weight under doctor’s orders but still believes butter makes everything better; a colorful family who may or may not be part of the Russian mob; an überwealthy Georgetown family; the picture-perfect Van Houghtens, whose matriarch is “allergic to everything”; and finally, a man she calls “Mr. Tuesday,” whom she has never met but who she is strangely drawn to.

For Gemma, cooking is predictable. Recipes are certain. Use good ingredients, follow the directions, and you are assured success. Life, on the other hand, is full of variables. So when Gemma’s takes an unexpected turn on a road she always thought was straight and narrow, she must face her past and move on in ways she never would have imagined. Because sometimes in life, all you need is a little hope, a lot of courage, and—-oh yes—-butter.

    " I was excited about this new read by Harbison and wasn't disappointed. Gemma Craig is a 30 something personal chef who could write a tell-all book about her clients. I found the beginning of the story was a bit slow, but I enjoyed learning why Gemma's character had chosen the career path she had and how she got to this point in her life. I really began to enjoy "Mr. Tuesday's" storyline and until I was at the point where they meet one antoher, can honestly say I didn't see that coming. I liked the book very much and would recommend it, but I will say the ending felt a little too wrapped up for me. I was glad she found her happy ending and didn't have to put with with the Angela's of this world. "

    " This is the classic fluff chick lit, but it happened to be just what I needed right now! And sometimes these books can be just too predictable and pointless - this is was the right amount of cute, maybe because of all the food references?! ps: Have I really not read a new book in a month?!!!
