Good book. Would have been a great book if it provided recipes for some of the dishes the title character made.

This story is about a big-time foodie couple, in a very cozy marriage, that decides to make some changes and the husband goes on a much needed diet.
Beneath this light comedy, the novel offers a telling commentary on our societies obesession with food and how it dominates our lives.
A great book club read with a discussion guide at the end of the book.

This was an enjoyable quick read. It talks about relationships, marriage, emotional ties to people as well as food. Sort of an emotioanal journey for the characters as well as the reader.

Harry loves to cook. Big gourmet meals - high calorie, high cholesterol, high sugar and highly tasty meals. Harry also loves to eat the meals he cooks. Which is fine until he receives a digital scale which talks. The scale not only talks but gets downright insulting when it thinks you weigh more than you should. And Harry's doctor confirms the scales opinion. Harry has to lose weight.So his wife Francine takes over the cooking. And Harry loses weight. Then Harry joins a health club and before long a new improved Harry never seems to be home. Is he having an affair? Francine just doesn't know what to do with this new Harry.

This is a great little book, writen by a "New York Times" bestselling author, as a fundraiser for a friend. I believe it was a group of writers, who are listed on the back reccommending this book.
Jeanne Ray (Eat Cake, Step-ball Change,Julie and Romeo)
Anne D. Leclaire (Leaving Eden, Entering Normal)
Jo-Anne Mapson (Bad Girl Creek, Along Came Mary)
Jacqueline Mitchard (The Deep End of the Ocean)

I liked the beginning of this book because when I'm not cooking and/or eating food, I like to read about fictional characters or real people who are cooking and/or eating food. About 2/3 of the way through, the plot makes an attempt to be more than a book just about food (which is when I think it gets a little hokey). However, it is a very short book and you can get through that part quickly.
