Thank you to NetGalley.com for the opportunity to read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
Charlie is not the easiest person to like – she’s very OCD, precise, demanding, and is basically a control freak. She’s pretty likable though – because she embraces her quirky habits and turns them into a positive for her career – sweet is far more scientific and precise than savory.
What I loved: That Charlie was portrayed as a strong woman without being a witch with a B, orhaving to use her feminine wiles to get what she wants. She wasn’t a backstabber, a gossip, or any of the stereotypical women on reality television today.
What I didn’t love: I don’t think the author needed the subplot of the reality show – it wasn’t enough to have a huge effect on the story and yet there wasn’t enough mention of it to make it that exciting.All that food talk and not 1 recipe in sight? Boo!!! Seriously – maple bacon cupcakes and no recipe?
What I learned: I need recipes in a food themed book – I’ve been spoiled for too long.
Overall Grade: B
