Overview

Nothing gets Eleanor Samuels's heart racing like a double scoop of mocha fudge chunk. Sure, the magazine writer may have some issues aside from food, but she isn't quite ready to face them. Then her beloved Uncle Benny falls ill, and what at first seems scary and daunting becomes a blessing in disguise. Because while she cooks and cares for him-and enjoys a delicious flirtation with a new chef in town-Eleanor begins to uncover some long-buried secrets about her emotionally frayed family and may finally get the chance to become the woman she's always wanted to be.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Loved the main character as she is a real person that can be related to. The book had funny moments and sad moments. Great, fun book to read.

From the moment main character Eleanor gorges on ice cream behind a dumpster, I knew this book was going to be something different and more real than I'd read in a long time. I connected deeply with Eleanor, and cried and laughed with her all of the way through this beautiful story of a woman taking care of a dying father figure and trying to figure out her own problems, which include, of course, eating, a contentious relationship with her narcissistic mother, a career that leaves her soul feeling sucked dry, and men who can't see past her size. The author's writing is deceptively simple. It's only when you stop and re-read something that was stated so perfectly you can see-smell-touch-taste it that you realize how masterful she really is. The eating scenes will leave you breathless! I can't recommend it highly enough. Treat yourself to a heavenly reading experience.
