    Hannah Sugarman┬┐s parents have guided her to a successful life.

    Hannah Sugarman’s parents have guided her to a successful life.  She works at a think tank in Washington D.C.; her boss is someone her parents know.  She lives in a great apartment with her high achieving boyfriend.  The only problem, Hannah isn’t happy.  All she wants to do it cook.  Cooking is not considered a successful career by her parents or her boyfriend.




    When Hannah’s world turns upside down, she makes it an opportunity to do what she has always wanted and opens and underground supper club.   Her supper club becomes the most sought after meal in town.  But it is not quite legal.  The health department does not check her out, she has no licenses, and is using her landlords apartment without his knowledge.




    Hannah is one of my favorite characters.  She is crazy (in a good way), independent, and funny.  I was constantly laughing and hoping everything would work out for her.  I easily related to her love of cooking, even though I don’t cook as fancy as she does.  But I can hope to try some of the recipes included in the book.   I loved watching her struggle with her guilt of using her landlords apartment and then cover her tracks when she leaves little clues behind accidentally.  She is a horrible liar, but somehow she never gets caught.  My favorite part was when she stands up to her parents.  Finally telling them how she is done living her for them and is going to do what she wants to do. 




    Jacob and Blake were interesting.  I knew something was fishy with Jacob and loved it when she confronted him.  But was hoping he wouldn’t blow the whistle on her supper club, especially with Blake standing right there.  Blake was amazing.  Even with his pirate and fishing talk he was so likeable.  It seemed that he just got Hannah.  Although I don’t know of any men that would be able to forgive someone for the mess Hannah made of his home and career.  I loved how supportive and pushy he was with Hannah’s career goals. 




    This was a fun and sometimes silly book.  I loved learning about Hannah and her relationships. Definitely an easy read with a great story.

    This fantastic debut by Dana Bate is a book that all twentysomethings should read. She wonderfully captures what it is to be a young woman trying to find her identity and passion in this world. Her writing is witty and entertaining, and draws you in from the first paragraph. It's hard not to fall in love with Hannah Sugarman! And from a food lovers perspective...the book is absolutely decadent (and frequently made me hungry). I can't wait to read more from Dana Bate!

    A Lilac Wolf and Stuff Review

    This book really touched me. It starts out with Hannah kind of having a dream life. She has a boyfriend who is doing well, she has a job that her family approves of. But it's not really perfect. He's kind of an ass and throws her out and she honestly hates her job. She loves to cook, that's where her passion lies.

    So when she finds her perfect apartment, her friend starts pressuring her to hold a supper club. It's an illegal and secret dinner. I was hooked. I'd love to do something like that! But with 2 kids and a ratty old trailer, I'll have to live through Hannah for right now.

    It's a good sign when you are cringing at all the bad choices a character makes but you still can't put it down. I read this book months ago, the cover caught me. I had some free time and library books but this cover just screamed "read me!" It really was a great chick-lit story. Romantic comedy? Fun, definitely fun!
