    Emily and Jessamine Bach are opposites in every way: 28-year-old Emily is the CEO of Veritech; 23-year-old Jess is an environmental activist and graduate student in philosophy. Emily is making a fortune in Silicon Valley, Jess works in an antiquarian bookstore. The Cookbook Collector is a novel about getting and spending, and about the substitutions we make when we can’t find what we’re looking for. But above all, it is about holding on to what is real in a virtual world: love that stays.

    "A captivating read"
    Overall

    As usual Allegra Goodman pays attention to the details and surprises us to the end with characters that are real and imaginative. The reader took a bit to get used to but after the first chapter I liked her interpretation of the different characters--it actually helped me track the details!! A surprise and thought-provoking ending.

    Ever the bold adventuress, Lucy Waltham has decided to go hunting for a husband. But first she needs some target practice. So she turns to her brother's best friend, Jeremy Trescott, the Earl of Kendall, to hone her seductive wiles on him before setting her sights on another man. But her practice kisses spark a smoldering passion that could send all her plans up in smoke.

    What would have made Goddess of the Hunt better?

    I do not know if it was the narrator or the story, but I could not muddle through this one...what a disappointment!


    Has Goddess of the Hunt turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I am an avid romance reader...but this one just did not move!


    What three words best describe Helen Moore-Gillon’s performance?

    Unconvincing, forced...


    Any additional comments?

    Stay away from this one! There are so many better ones!
