We are reading When Doubt Add Butter as the book club book of the month over at Chick Lit and Other Fiction. This is Beth’s latest work which of course focuses on food.
Gemma has been serving up delicious dishes five days a week to her clients, and then doing some catering on the weekends. She has some interesting clients such as the Van Houghtens, the mysterious Mr. Tuesday, Lex the department store owner, and Willa. Gemma serves up the meals in the midst of challenging demands of her clients. An interesting mishap with one of her clients leads to challenges for Gemma to maintain her business. She shares all her trials with her cousin Penny who is expecting her latest child any minute. Will Gemma be able to meet the demands of her clients? Will she find out who Mr. Tuesday really is?
I have read one other book by Beth Harbison and I have to say that I really liked When in Doubt Add Butter. I found the topic of the baking and or cooking for her clients really interesting. There was also always hope for Gemma’s situation also you never who you might meet. Great story with a mix of mystery and humor. I look forward to reading my next Beth Harbison book.
