Review of Queen of the Cookbooks

 

30229505Synopsis:

In the quirky Southern town of Cherico, Mississippi, a new library means an exciting new chapter for librarian Maura Beth McShay—and for the friends and book lovers known as the Cherry Cola Book Club…

The construction of Cherico’s cutting-edge library has been an epic struggle worthy of War and Peace. But the Grand Opening Ceremony is scheduled at last—for the Fourth of July no less—featuring lakeside fireworks and a concert by country singer Waddell Mack. Maura Beth has even devised a cooking contest among area chefs and aspiring Julia Childs to crown the Queen of the Cookbooks. Yet even Maura Beth’s careful plotting can’t prevent some glitches…

Between a furniture fiasco that requires some creative problem-solving, and front-desk clerk Renette’s major crush on Waddell Mack, there’s equal parts drama and comic relief. Once the ribbon has been cut and the delicious recipes are judged, the Queen of the Cookbooks will take her crown, and the Cherry Cola Book Club, along with Maura Beth and her staff, will have the library of their dreams. But it’ll take luck, loyal friendships, and the shared love of a powerful story to make this a truly happy beginning… (Goodreads)

Review:

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Maura Beth is a hard worker and she is determined to make the library grand opening successful.  I liked the fact that she did not let hard work and problems stop her.  I also liked the fact that the other members of the book club stood by her side and were very willing to help her.  I really liked that this plot revolved around a library.  There were so many things that went wrong but some of them were rather humorous and unusual.  I also liked the fact that recipes were included, which sounded delicious.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well written humorous women’s fiction.  This is the first book that I have read in the series and I did not have any trouble following along.  But I wish I had read the other books so I could see the growth of the characters.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.  I would like to thank NetGalley and Kensington Books for the opportunity to read and review this book.
