    Good, but a bit too "perfect."

    This book started out seeming to be about the professional and personal challenges of the main character in a humorous and engaging way... But things just turned out too perfectly for my taste. I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, but it didn't... Losing the humor and charm.

    I may have had unrealistic expectations for this book because it was recommended by Jen Lancaster, my favorite snarky author. I was expecting this book to be more like her writing, which it is not.

    Not good

    This book was very boring. So boring in fact, I skipped to the end and nothing had happened! Plus it is very over written. The author never uses one word when she can use ten. Just by reading the first sentence of every paragraph I got the entire gist of the book. Not for me.

    Off the Menu disapoints

    Stacey Ballis is a clever and entertaining writer,but this novel is very disapointing. The character development is excellent but there is no plot. Names of chefs are thrown around, but the cooking world is not researched or written about well. I read the entire book waiting for something to happen but it never did. This book clearly smacks of a throwaway novel written quickly. Dont waste your money on this one.

    I enjoyed this book it was a lovely, relaxing read. Howeber, the writing could have been a little more graphic and the romance was a little too mushy/perfect/corny for my taste. When romance is too mushy gushy and corny it never seems realistic to me. I agree that It seemed a little anti-climatic  at the end but it  was kind of refreshing to read this nice book on my vacation that was happy all throughout. I will definitely read more by this author and I recommend it to anyone that just wants something nice and light and enjoyable to read.
