THE LOST RECIPE FOR HAPPINESS
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
Beautiful writing, good storytelling and an endearing heroine set against the backdrop of Aspen, Colo., are highlights of O'Neal's novel. A tale that intertwines food, friendship, passion and love in such a delectable mix is one to truly savor until the very last page.
Strong-willed Elena is a chef by trade and the lone survivor of an accident that has left its mark on her both physically and mentally. After being fired suddenly from her current job, she meets Julian, a film director/restaurant owner who offers her an opportunity of a lifetime -- to run her own kitchen in a first-class restaurant. When Elena heads to beautiful Aspen, for a fresh start, she's not only stirred by this new challenge but also by Julian, whose passionate take on food and life matches her own. (Bantam Discovery, Jan., 464 pp., $12.00)
