Hannah Sugarman seems to have it all. She works for an influential think tank in Washington, DC, lives in a great apartment with her highachieving boyfriend, and is poised for graduate school and an academic career just like her famous parents. The only problem is that Hannah doesn’t want any of it. What she wants is much simpler: to cook. When her relationship implodes, Hannah seizes the chance to do what she’s always loved and starts an underground supper club out of her new landlord’s townhouse. Though wildly successful, her underground operation presents some problems. First, running an unlicensed restaurant out of someone’s home is not, technically speaking, legal. And she kind of forgets to tell her landlordwho just happens to be running for local office and wants to tighten neighborhood restaurant regulationsthat she is using his place while he is out of town. On top of all this, Hannah is faced with various romantic prospects that leave her guessing and confused, parents who aren’t huge fans of cooking as a career, and her own fears and doubts that threaten her dreams. A charming, accessible romantic comedy, The Girls' Guide to Love and Supper Clubs is a story about finding yourself, fulfilling your dreams, and falling in love along the way.
Journalist and debut novelist Bate deftly conjures up a witty, resilient heroine, surrounds her with delightful friends and frenemies, and sends them all on a rollicking quest for love and delicious food."Kirkus Reviews"
Great for foodies . . . [a] book that you can quite easily eat up in one go."Cosmopolitan (UK)"
Hannah is a girl I can relate to. She knows the value of a good carrot cake, and she's sometimes the most awkward girl at the party. Hannah is like all of us: she has dreams that seem so right and yet, so terrifying. She reminds us that dreams are often chocolate frosted and hard-fought, but the key ingredient is believing in yourself."Joy Wilson, author of Joy the Baker Cookbook"
[A] delicious debut . . . Hannah is the kind of heroine you'll root for, the descriptions of food are dangerously good, and Bate adds a healthy dash of humor to the mix."Sarah Pekkanen, author of These Girls"
Foodie Fiction has a new it girl! Dana Bate's debut, The Girls' Guide to Love and Supper Clubs is the kind of book you just devour. Hannah Sugarman is Bridget Jones with a killer cinnamon bun recipe, and you will cheer her triumphs in the kitchen while you suffer with her trials in love and life. A delicious read from appetizer to dessert."Stacey Ballis, author of Good Enough to Eat and Off the Menu
