3.0 out of 5 stars A Comforting Read, 23 Feb 2009
This review is from: Comfort Food (Paperback)
Comfort Food' is set in New York and centres around Gus (short for Augusta), a widow who is just turning 50. For the past twelve years Gus has been a hard-working single mother - her two daughters are both now adults, although neither of them are 'grown up'. Gus is the star of a succesful TV cookery show.

The beginning of the story tells how Gus is having mixed feelings about her impending 50th birthday and doesnt really feel like organising one of her famous partys. Everything seems to be going wrong - the budget for her show is cut and he is expected to work alongside Carmen - a very young and very beautiful up and coming cookery show host.

Aswell as Gus - there are a whole host of other characters, her two daughters and Hannah, her reclusive neighbour who has a big secret.

This is a very light and enjoyable read - Gus is a likeable character. The story is a little predictable but great for a lazy Sunday afternoon or sun lounger read.
