At thirty-three, talented chef Georgia Gray has everything a woman could want--the top job at one of Manhattan's best restaurants; a posse of smart and savvy gal pals who never let her down; and a platinum-set, cushion-cut diamond engagement ring courtesy of Glenn, the handsome entertainment lawyer who Georgia's overbearing mother can't wait for her to marry. The table is set for the ambitious bride-to-be until a scathing restaurant review destroys her reputation. To add salt to her wounds, Glenn suddenly calls off the wedding.

Brokenhearted, Georgia escapes to the Italian countryside, where she sharpens her skills at a trattoria run by a world-class chef who seems to have it all--a devoted lover, a magnificent villa, and most important, a kitchen of her own. Georgia quells her longings with Italy's delectable offerings: fine wine, luscious cheeses, cerulean blue skies, and irresistible Gianni--an expert in the vineyard and the bedroom. So when Gianni tempts Georgia to stay in Italy with an offer no sane top chef could refuse, why can't she say yes?

An appetite for something more looms large in Georgia's heart - the desire to run her own restaurant in the city she loves. But having left New York with her career in flames, she'll need to stir up more than just courage if she's to realize her dreams and find her way home.

A good story. I liked learning about the different level of chefs in a kitchen. Found the first part of the book very detailed and the last part of the book VERY rushed. Georgia's friends were great characters. I question the use of "G" names for so many characters: Georgia, Grammie, Glenn, Gianni.

This story is a great tale of a woman, Georgia, overcoming all obstacles to get what she wants. A strong reminder that we all deserve good things and that, sometimes, we really just need to believe in ourselves to get them.

This is a funny, light read. Anyone who's ever worked in the food industry will enjoy the 'back of house' antics, and readers who enjoy good food and dining will find their mouth watering as Nelson describes dish after gourmet dish turned out by her chef main character, Georgia.
