  • A Serving of Love

    Story

    Sebastian Franklin has waited a long time to prove himself as front of the house manager at Cafe Belgie, but his first night in charge while Darryl, his boss, is on vacation is less than a success. The restaurant is robbed at closing time, and the Good Samaritan who foiled the robber comes with his own complications. Robert Fortier is the county’s newest judge, and a reluctant one at that. He is well aware that a public life is not always easy, especially when your personal life makes you the target of a media frenzy.

    Where does A Serving of Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Although I thoroughly enjoyed a 'Serving of Love' – some of Andrew Grey's other writings (the 'love means...' Series) a bit more. Overall, a good read!


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Gelder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time listening to this narrator. It took me a while to warm up to him… But once I did, I found that I enjoyed the story more & more.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved that Andrew Grey wrote a current story - which allowed me to relate to the characters well. He's a good author & I look forward to reading more selections by him.

    Len Parker is laid off during the recession in the early 80s and decides to go back to college at home in rural Michigan, where he reconnects with his best friend from high school, Ruby. He's overjoyed when she marries Cliff Laughton and overcome with sorrow when she dies an untimely death, leaving behind her husband and two-year-old son.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Love Means... Courage to be better than the print version?

    YES! I believe this narrator does an EXCELLENT job of bringing to life the story with great voice inflection and emotion!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love Means... Courage?

    When Cliff realizes that he is surrounded by love - rejecting all that is negative and hateful, even if it comes from his own family.


    What does Sawyer Allerde bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Again - emotion, life & vibrancy to the characters! I loved the way that Sawyer Allerde describes the setting, town & farm... Makes me feel as if I could see this 80's Western story unfold in front of me.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    ... The end! I'm not giving anything away!


    Any additional comments?

    Great Author! Can't wait to read more Andrew Grey books!

    Danny Meyer started Union Square Cafe when he was 27, with a good idea and scant experience. He is now the CEO of one of the world's most dynamic restaurant organizations, one that includes 11 unique dining establishments, each at the top of its game. How did he do it? How has he consistently beaten the odds in one of the toughest trades around?

    Jay says: "Solid"
    "A fantastic way to approach business!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Setting the Table to be better than the print version?

    Yes! Danny Meyer's voice allows you to hear the words delivered with power and finesse!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Setting the Table?

    His deeply personal stories that allow the reader to connect with him as the author & narrator! With his descriptions and candor he makes you want to not only be a better employee... but to have your good employees be great & that the reader can follow his same principles to create those great employees in ALL points of the biz world!


    Have you listened to any of Danny Meyer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    His realization that it was time to let go of Eleven Madison Park... a restaurant that he loved dearly after all of the time it took to get it off the ground. Although he was selling it to (essentially) the exec chef, he knew he had to do it & that he could continue to build & create amazing restaurants in the future!

    Amazing book & great read!
