Overview

A COMEDY ABOUT FRIENDSHIP, CHOCOLATE, AND A SMALL NUCLEAR BOMB.

Part thriller and part romantic comedy, Food of Love is a rollercoaster comedy that also addresses complex issues about body image, religion and a woman's right to choose.

The novel tells the story of Regina, a former supermodel, now princess of a tiny European principality, who has lost her skeletal figure and finds herself threatened by an unknown assassin. Fearing her royal husband wants to kill her now that she's not model-thin, she seeks protection from her estranged African-American foster sister, conservative Christian television pundit, Rev. Cady Stanton.

Reverend Cady has some serious weight and romantic issues of her own, compounded when an "accident" intended for Regina leaves her temporarily blind. But when Regina is declared dead and Cady's seventy-year old secretary is wrongly arrested for smuggling a small nuclear bomb to the funeral, Cady takes control.

With the help of a porn mogul, a Russian spy, a rap diva and her fierce hairdresser-girlfriend, Cady is able to save Regina, restore the bomb to its proper owners, and unearth the long-buried family secrets that hold the key to her own happiness.

Food of Love has all the classic elements of comedy-thriller and believable farce that have become the hallmark of an Anne R. Allen novel.

Editorial Reviews

Lincolnshire Echo - Karen Parsons
“A romping good read…Bridget Jones meets James Bond…a satirical look at glamourous and celebrity life as it plays out its adventure of international intrigue.

Set in this comic fantasy situation are real empathetic characters…whose pasts…affect their present and who have to deal with serious contemporary issues.
South Yorkshire Tiems - Linda Waslege

Following deprived childhoods…two American foster sisters achieve worldwide fame after battles against the bulge.

Regina..a stick-thin supermodel, marries an Alpine prince, while Cady (real name Cadillac) ends up as a preacher turned super-slim, couture-wearing Congresswoman…this is no ordinary tale of health spas and dieting, with assassination attempts, terrorism, a nuclear device, a substitute corpse, rumours of UFOs, a porno-film maker and a handsome Russian secret agent...

    I love it

    Food of Love is a romping good time. Imagine Tom Robbins, Fannie Flagg, and Armistead Maupin collaborating on a novel. They start by squeezing into a bathroom stall at a posh drug rehab center. Throw in a conservative talk show hostess, a model-turned princess, a reformed porn director, and of course, Elvis, and you've got a pile of laughs and a fantastic read.
