5.0 out of 5 stars delicious read!! 24 May 2012
Format:Paperback
I am not normally an avid reader of 'chick lit' fiction, however I have been pleasantly surprised with this novel, and would definitely read more of Amy's books because of it. I read it in a few days, and kept going back to it any chance I had, so it is certainly a story that hooks you in. I loved the character of Eve, and was soon drawn into her world, which is turned upside down by the unexpected arrival of her long lost love Ethan. There are many surprises and twists in this book, and also many laugh out loud moments. I found the relationship between Eve and her sister Daisy very poignant and complex, and beautifully written. I came to love and care about all of the characters in the story, they are all flawed in their own way, but with good intentions, and seem like the kind of people you would enjoy having dinner and wine with!! the way it is split into four parts, for each contestants supper in the competition, separates the book nicely, and each chapter leaves you hanging on wanting to know what will happen next. From someone who does not pick up chick lit books very often, I can really reccommend this book, it will make you smile!

4.0 out of 5 stars Delicious reading! 10 May 2012
By Chloe S "Chick Lit Chloe" TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Eve is happily living in London with her boyfriend Joe, who she got together with after the disappearance of Ethan, the love of her life. She's opening a café and everything seems to be going well. When Joe begs her to take part in a supper club for a local newspaper, she reluctantly agrees but doesn't realise it's going to change her life completely. When she opens the door to her first guest, she's shocked to find Ethan standing there. What is he doing back in London, and why exactly did he run away 3 years ago never to be heard from again? Join Eve, Maggie, Ethan and Andrew for four evening's of delicious food, and a few surprise revelations along the way too!

The book dives straight in with the first meal at Eve's home, and I enjoyed that there wasn't too much setting up and it got straight into the action. Instead, Bratley choses to tell the backstory between Joe and Eve deciding to take part in the supper club, and then Eve and Ethan's relationship through little flashback throughout the first few chapters, and it was fun to read. It flitted back and forth rather easily, and I loved how I was left in suspense in parts because something would happen, and then it would jump back to another flashback, and I'd be left wondering what happened, which was fantastic! The book is written in the first person from Eve's point of view, so the flashback type of narrative works really well, and it really allows us to get into the mind of Eve and understand her reactions and why she does what she does in the book.

The dinner party part of the book was really fun to read. The book is split into 4 parts - one for each of the dinner parties and the story with Eve, Ethan and Joe progresses around these.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book! 30 May 2012
By Kim The Book Worm TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Started it Sunday night, couldn't put it down and finished it Monday night. Think that says it all really!

Eve's world was completely shattered three years ago when boyfriend Ethan disappeared out of her life with no reason or explanation. After a long time of hurt, her heart was finally repaired and she got together with childhood friend Joe who she is very comfortable with, very happy with and who loves her with all his heart.

Joe is a freelance journalist and when an article was due to be written about a Saturday Supper Club experience and one of the contestants dropped out Joe asks Eve whether she would stand in. She reluctantly agrees and is the first to host the guests. When her doorbell rings she is totally and utterly gobsmacked when the person standing on her doorstep is her long lost love Ethan!

After taking in the knowledge that he has reappeared in her life, Eve wants an explanation from Ethan. But is the Supper Club the right place to get it?

This book was absolutely tremendous and I really could not put it down. Eve and her sister Daisy lost their mom when both children were young girls and the way that writer Amy Batley writes about their emotions is outstanding. Having lost my own darling mom, not at an early age but later in life, I sat and sobbed when Amy described how Eve had been sat at her moms bedside as she was taken from them. They also cared so much about their dad who was trying to keep himself together and tried then to bring them up the best way a single dad possibly can. That all hit home I can tell you!

Having read Amy Bratley's first book I have to say *hands up* I am not normally a chick-lit reader. But I really couldn't wait for her second novel after stumbling across her first; "The Girl's Guide To Home-making". I was totally drawn in by her wonderfully acute and brilliantly observed characterisation - and the fact that she sets her novels firmly in a London that any creative-leaning, vintage-appreciating young woman will immediately recognise! I loved the added thrill of knowing the exact drinking holes and cocktail corners of London that her brilliantly drawn characters frequent, as well as recognising the often laugh-out-loud familiar observations of friendship, family, life and love in a big city.

"The Saturday Supper Club" did not disappoint. There is a mystery that needs to be gradually unravelled (why DID Ethan leave Eve so suddenly and out of the blue?) and what will become of Eve's about-to-open cafe? The fact that the book takes the format of TV's "Come Dine With Me" transferred to a local rag's competition, you have the added hilarity Amy cleverly bringing together an assorted mix of characters for us to get to know, and to cringe along with as they get on with their drink-fuelled culinary evenings - each evening with it's own inevitable jeopardy and cliffhanger.

But there is a lot more to be unravelled in "The Saturday Supper Club"; the issues two sisters deal with after the death of their mother and subsequently the task of looking after their father, close friendships that can't stay the same forever, a sudden end to a relationship that needs to be explained, and the deeper darker secrets that lie just beneath all these - secrets we keep to protect the ones we love.

Thoroughly recommended!
