The Saturday Night Supper Club was a really enjoyable story. It was the first that I have read by this author, but will definitely not be the last. The characters, Alex and Rachel, both had great depth and personality. The author provided lots of interesting backstory for both of them, without weighing down the novel. Their budding romance was also extremely well written and believable. I was definitely rooting for them as I made my way through each chapter.
And while this story revolves heavily around food preperation and presentation, not only foodies will appreciate the storyline. I am not a foodie and I still found myself very interested in all that was described. I’m looking forward to reading the future books in this series!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Denver chef Rachel Bishop has accomplished everything she’s dreamed and some things she never dared hope, like winning a James Beard award and heading up her own fine-dining restaurant. But when a targeted smear campaign causes her to be pushed out of the business by her partners, she vows to do whatever it takes to get her life back … even if that means joining forces with the man who inadvertently set the disaster in motion.
Essayist Alex Kanin never imagined his pointed editorial would go viral. Ironically, his attempt to highlight the pitfalls of online criticism has the opposite effect: it revives his own flagging career by destroying that of a perfect stranger. Plagued by guilt-fueled writer’s block, Alex vows to do whatever he can to repair the damage. He just doesn’t expect his interest in the beautiful chef to turn personal.
Alex agrees to help rebuild Rachel’s tarnished image by offering his connections and his home to host an exclusive pop-up dinner party targeted to Denver’s most influential citizens: the Saturday Night Supper Club. As they work together to make the project a success, Rachel begins to realize Alex is not the unfeeling opportunist she once thought he was, and that perhaps there’s life–and love–outside the pressure-cooker of her chosen career. But can she give up her lifelong goals without losing her identity as well?
